Using sockets behind furniture - flat plugs and what to look out for
Due to their low installation height, flat plugs are used in sockets that are difficult to access, e.g. behind furniture. When using and purchasing the flat angled plugs, some safety-relevant specifications must be observed. Certified flat connectors are available at EVOlineStore.
Flat plugs, also known as flat angled plugs with protective contact, are useful when a socket is hidden behind a piece of furniture or another obstacle. The socket can be exposed, but when the furniture is moved in front of it again, the cable with the plug protrudes too far. Flat connectors solve this problem and are available in several different finishes.
However, it is mostly not known how important it is to pay attention to VDE conformity and technical specifications with these plugs. Fixed sockets may not be able to withstand the thermal load and may catch fire if, for example, the flat plug cannot be inserted deep enough. This so-called partial connection could bend the contacts in the socket or cause arcing faults.Flat angled plugs that meet the technical specifications meet the following conditions:
- The applicable requirements of the VDE standard are complied with and the technical specification also applies
- Shape and material allow easy removal by hand (without tools)
- The gripping surface or lever (latch) on the flat plug function without the cable being pulled
- The lever only works in the direction of use and is permanently mounted
- The flat plugs can be FULLY plugged into the socket without being deformed, partial plug-ins are not allowed (minimum protrusion of the socket must be observed)
- The plugs must not slide out without assistance (not even if the cable is accidentally pulled)
- Warnings and safety instructions are available to the consumer Pictograms are explained
- Flat plugs must not protrude over switches or other sockets
When buying, the consumer can rely on compliance with these criteria if the supplier has already taken care of them. EVOlineStore sells only certified flat plugs.
