    Where can I buy a tough double-wall electric socket?

    Can anyone recommend somewhere to buy a toughened wall socket (for the garage)

    One of the ones you see in factories/warehouses

    Don't even know what they are called

    or you can get commercial sockets (mostly MK type) from most electrical distributors like Wf or eveb rs etc.

    I try and use Denmans Electrical now as much as I can - never ever been ripped off from them and rock bottom prices on all the stuff I've bought.
