Step 1 – Isolate Power: Before doing anything at all, the very first job is to isolate the power to the circuit you are going to be working on! When on, the switch is connecting the switched live and live terminals together (top and bottom in this example). Junction boxes come with either 3, 4, 5 or 6 terminals so work our which you will need to complete your project. The terminals are where the connections will be made by inserting the wire core from either side or the wiring run and then screwing the terminal close to create a safe electrical junction and join.

Likewise, the cables running into and out of the junction box should also be secured to a suitable, stable surface. If not, then “mechanical strain” could take place and over time, wires may become loose causing loose connections. Single screw terminal – The terminal has one screw which is screwed closed on to the cable cores being joined together to secure them all in one single connection point. These are typically found in the Standard junction box, and allow the connection of a larger number or sizes of cable cores that the other terminal types As with the ceiling rose, the IN cable supplies power from the consumer unit or previous junction box, and the OUT cable connects to the next junction box. These cables have permanent live, neutral and earth wires. In this guide we take a look at junction boxes and how they are wired up and used, read on to find out more. Working With Electricity and Junction Boxes As we have stated in the how to wire section above, junction boxes must be fixed solidly to a firm, suitable surface and must be accessible! These rules are stipulated in the latest 18th edition regulations and must be adhered to. Screw the base of the junction box to a joist or rafter through the securing holes indicated in the image below.Installations with plain green sleeving on the earth wires will typically be approaching 40 years old and are likely to require replacement. When it comes to wiring up junction boxes, as you would expect, there are some quite strict rules on how they are wired, where they can be placed and how any cables should be secured. All of this is covered below. All of the earth wires connect to the earth terminal, and must have green/yellow sleeving over them. Junction Boxes - end of line Junction boxes can also be used to add lights and switches. For more information please see our lights and switches project. An alternative method, this uses the same wiring principles as the looped ceiling roses, but here the connections are made in junction boxes rather than the ceiling rose. The junction box effectively replaces the ceiling rose.

Use green and yellow earth sheathing to cover the earth which will most likely be bare at present. As commented, this is a legal requirement stated in the Wiring Regulations. Which Colour Wires are Which? Step 3 – Connect to Terminals: Once all stripped, connect each core wire to an individual terminal ensuring that each type of core is connected to the same from the other cable, e.g. a 3 brown lives in one terminal, all 3 blue neutrals in another terminal and all 3 earths in another terminal. Also ensure that you add earth sheath to each bare earth wire – This has to be done by law!There is no requirement for a junction box to be either round or square, and they are commonly both. As a rule of thumb the more common round junction boxes are typically used for lower current cables. Step 1 – Isolate Power: Before you do anything at all, first isolate the power to the circuit you are working on! Choose a junction box with conductor fill volume (which is the number of conductors allowed in a junction box) higher or equal to the number of wires (after multiplying them by 2 and adding in the ground wire) entering the junction box. It’s best to choose a fill volume higher than the number of wires you have to ensure there will be enough room. [1] X Research source
