Electrical regs

2 Replies



HI,  thinking of buying a house but it needs renovated part of which is a rewire. I got a quote which I think is extortionate so was going to do it myself as I worked as an electrician in the uk. I would need to track horizontal across the wall. Is my understanding of french regs correct that i can do this by putting the cables in steel conduit that runs along the top off the wall but not below 1/8th of the total height of the wall? The house has concrete ceilings throughout! Would appreciate feed back if anyone can confirm or deny. Cheers

You can look up the regs.You have to put vertical feeds in in certain positions as well .No ring mains but you can put a surprising number of double sockets on a 2.5mm  feed.The same with light sockets.Check out earthing and the cavalier attitude to sockets near sinks.

I haven't been able to find them in English but from what I could understand when I read them was the above message was allowed. The socket would be at low level but the steel conduit would be to get from 1 end of the wall to the other as its a concrete ceiling. Do u have a link for a translation of the regs? Thanks for your reply
