    So, customer decided they wanted B&Q chrome switches, sockets etc.... being 2nd fixing today and the dual dryline box, for side by side S FCU's is a problem - the S FCU's are wider than "conventional" units so I can't fix them properly.

    So does anyone know of a dual dryline box, where the boxes are slightly further apart?

    Hope this makes sense

    Thanks

    I have stopped using dual boxes for this reason. Nightmare when they overlap

    is it possible to take the dry line box/es out , fit noggins and metal back box/es?

    or...find close matches for the faceplates that fit existing boxes.

    Hum... bit of a long story but the builders built the wall poorly - my original boxes are still in the wall, with the dryline boxes in front AND an air gap....... so not easy to achieve ....

    Haha how many sheets of plasterboard to lose the original boxes and still have room for new dry liners?

    Click Scolmore - 2 1 Gang Dry Lining Boxes (WA087P) and 1 Link (GA100)

    That will give you the extra few mm you need

    No - still close together - so the answer was 2 x 1G 47mm boxes and long screws....

    Thanks for the input from you all.
