Cut-outs in glass splashbacks for electrical sockets should generally be at least 50mm from the edge of the glass splashback or from each other. If sockets are placed side by side the boxes must be placed so that the socket covers sit tight against one another. The sockets sit on top of the glass splashback. Please ensure your electrician leaves plenty of wire so sockets can be fed through the glass splashback cut-outs.
Standard sizes for sockets:
Single socket 75mm x 75mm
Double socket 135mm x 75mm
Double + single 218mm x 75mm
