July 19, 2016 – Wellingborough, UK: Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and

enclosures, today announces its new Debox 2 SL in-line cable junction box which can be assembled

in a few seconds, against several minutes for a traditional junction box. Debox 2 SL is supplied

complete with all components needed to join flat or round profile cable, including a UL and VDE-

approved 4-pole terminal block, to save electricians on-site installation time and reduce costs. Debox

2 SL is the UK’s first 100% tool-less junction box. With everything required immediately to hand,

installers are not delayed in the search for dropped screws or missing components. This innovative

cable junction box from Hylec-APL is IP20 protected and suits internal applications, including ring

main lighting, LED lighting and power.

A first to the UK market, Debox 2 SL is a registered design that includes a 4-pole screw-less push wire

terminal block (max current 16A), suitable for either flat or round profile cable with a minimum

conductor size of 0.5mm, maximum 2.5mm. Assembly is 100% tool-less: not even a screwdriver is

required. Convenient and robust, this push wire/push button terminal block offers a guarantee of

up to 50 connector insertions. After inserting the cables and closing the included cable clamps, the

lid is simply snapped shut and held with the supplied locking clip. A ratchet arm holds the cables

securely within the junction box and features a tailer for improved ratchet control. Debox 2 SL has

rip-off mounting ears that can be used to securely mount the box.

Debox 2 SL junction boxes are maintenance-free and constructed from white polypropylene. Flame

retardant to UL940V 0, they conform to the EN60598-1 (13.3.2) Glow Wire Test and are IP20

protected. Debox SL junction boxes measure 28.5mm x 50mm x 97mm and have a temperature

rating of -20degC to +85degC.

Comments Steve Robbins, Sales Director, Hylec-APL: “Our goal is to develop cost-effective,

innovative products that save the professional electrician time and money on virtually every

installation, so we are particularly proud to introduce the first-ever 100% screw-less junction box to

the UK market. Debox SL will speed up projects, encourage best practice installation and end the

frustration caused by dropped screws and missing components, as well as being neat, tidy and

robust. ”
