    like unicorns, I have seen pictures of these, but cant seem to find a distributor.
    can anyone assist ?
    at present there is a double socket in place with limited space around it so looking for a combined unit.
    I know I can change the back box and put two single units in its place, but saw a few pictures and wondered if they actually exist in the UK
    its the plain white

    You could probably make one from euro modules and a euro grid plate

    I am surprised that there isn't a call for this type of thing.Just think,if you wanted to take two spurs off the ring,then you could have a double socket manufactured with a fuse built in and the ring wires would go into LNE as usual but the output to the radials could come from a seperate LNE via the fuse and then out to the spurs.The only problem i can see is the space needed to fit all that into a double box.

    Although these are mainly used in caravans / motorhomes, would these be of any use?
    Just search on eBay for “C line fused / sockets”

    It's so stupid that these don't exist. It's just so much easier thay chopping out the existing backbox to make room for the bigger one.

    What sort of back box do you have at the point of localisation surface or flush? you could always swap the existing box for a double accessory box, use one side for the spur unit and the other side fit a single socket

    You can get those double single back boxes in plastic for plasterboard.
