Mounting Boxes

Installation & safety instructions

The MK Elements Collection wiring devices are designed to fit into folded metal
boxes that comply with BS 4662. To ensure products can be correctly installed, the
box must always be installed flush or sub flush to the surface to a maximum depth
of 6mm.

This product must be installed by a competent person (e.g. a qualified electrician) in

accordance with these instructions and the appropriate current national wiring
regulations (e.g. the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671).
To prevent the risk of electrocution it is essential to disconnect the main electricity
supply before commencing installation or maintenance work. Do not work on this
product live.
Do not use electric screwdrivers or power tools to tighten the product
It is essential that all connections to the terminals are made as instructed, that cables
are not stressed and all terminal screws are fully tightened.
When earth terminals are present they must always be used.
On wall mounted products ensure product is screwed securely to its mounting box
before turning on the mains supply.
To prevent fire hazard do not exceed the maximum rated current of the unit.
The MK Elements Collection products consist of the main product module, complete
with its support frame, plus a separate clip on frontplate. The product is mounted to
the wall, after wiring, and the frontplate is clipped onto the frame.
The frontplate is supplied separately to aid installation.

Fitting and removing the frontplate

How to install
To ensure a safe installation, you must read all the installation & safety instructions
on page 1

Load/supply cables

Steps for installation :

Strip back the sheath of the cable by the required amount.

Strip back the insulation of the individual conductors by the required amount.

1. Ensure the depth of the back box is correct for the product and that it is fitted
securely to the wall.

Removing the frontplate

2. Install the cables in the normal way and, using the fixing screws supplied, mount
the product, without the frontplate, to the wall. It is important the correct headed
screws are used as any other may clash with the rear of the front plate. Switches
incorporating a LOOP terminal are intended for connection of unused Neutral
conductors only.

(except K34384 : 35 mm)

3. To optimise frontplate installation do not over tighten the screws. Adjust so the
frame and module sit squarely on the wall.

Some mounting boxes are fitted with additional threaded fixing lugs on the upper
and lower edges. It may be necessary to bend these back into the box to ensure
the frontplate sits flush with the mounting surface.
The MK Elements Euro Module wiring devices range offers a variety of clip in
modules, telephone, data connectors etc, providing the flexibility to customise a
wiring device in the same enclosure and frontplate. Care must be taken to ensure
that segregation is maintained between modules of different operating voltages in
accordance with the current edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671).

4. Fit the frontplate as shown on page 4,5.

Fitting the frontplate

Carefully insert a 4mm screwdriver into the slots provided along the bottom
edge of the frontplate

Carefully twist the screwdriver and lift the frontplate away disengaging the
snap fits

Insert the conductors into the respective terminals. Where products are supplied
with backed out terminal screws, do not loosen screws further.
If the earth conductor is bare copper, ensure it is covered with a green/yellow sleeve,
so it cannot touch live parts.
Carefully push the wired product into the mounting box ensuring the cables are not
trapped or pinched.
Ensure all the terminal screws are tightened securely with a 4mm wide screwdriver.
Pull on each cable to ensure the terminal screw has securely fixed the conductor.


Care should be taken to ensure product features such as snap fits are not blocked
during installation or decorating, preventing correct fitting of frontplates (for
example plaster, tile grout, paint etc).
When carrying out insulation resistance testing, first disconnect any product which
features illumination. Failing to do this could damage the product and could also
give spurious insulation readings.

Locate the top and bottom hooks on the back of the frontplate into the holes
on the top and bottom of the module

Data products in euro mounting frames


Gently push along the top edge of the frontplate followed by the bottom

Products operating at extra low voltage levels (<50V) must not be mounted in the
same euro enclosures as equipment rated in excess of 50v (e.g. mains socket outlets).

Note: Ensure the correct frontplate is fitted to the correct module or frame.
