Always supporting electricians in achieving the most efficient job possible, the company behind C.K tools, Carl Kammerling International, has launched the Avit Socket Box Template, designed for quick and accurate positioning of single and double electric socket boxes.

Another industry first from the leading supplier of quality hand tools, the Avit Socket Box Template is the first of its kind to meet Document M of the Building Regulations 2010, that recommends that in new dwellings, switches and sockets must be set at a minimum height of 450mm from the floor. Whereas current socket templates on the market do not support electricians in meeting this requirement, the new Avit Socket Box Template boasts a 450mm height guide to allow for the correct height setting in new builds.

Previously, electricians have used basic templates with inadequate height guides that only reach up to 400mm, forcing them to use additional equipment such as a tape measure and spirit level, making this everyday task timely and cumbersome.

Making light work of setting electrical socket boxes at a suitable height and perfectly straight, the Avit Socket Box Template features an integrated spirit level to create the most aesthetically pleasing result.

Designed to achieve flawlessly placed socket boxes every time, the Avit Socket Box Template retails at the competitive price of £11.99 (ex VAT) and can be easily stored in any tool bag.

Graham Godfrey, brand manager, Avit commented: “At Avit we’re continuously looking for ways to extend our product ranges with quality tools that make a real difference to tradesmen, and the Avit Socket Box Template is testimony to this. The template was created as a direct result of feedback from our dedicated team of industry professionals, who we collaborate with during the tool development process.

“As with all of Avit’s innovations, the product is up-to-date with current legislation giving tradesmen peace of mind.”
