Hidden Outlet Device
If you decide to do repairs in the room and pokleit new wallpaper, then you need to start with the device hidden sockets. After all, you will agree that it is much more convenient when the socket is recessed into the wall, rather than protruding from it, interferes with the installation of furniture and spoils the look of the interior.
First you need turn off the power in your apartment by turning off the circuit breaker in the switchboard. After that, dismantle the old outlet and insulate the bare ends of the wires coming out of the wall. Now you need to determine the place where the sockets will be installed. It is advisable to place them over existing cable channels or at a short distance from them, then you will not have to make walls to hide several meters of electrical cable. Although you can hide all the extra wires under the baseboard.
Usually, sockets are made at a distance of 30 or 90 cm from the floor, so we mark the surface of the wall with a tape measure and a pencil. After that, we trace the plastic under the perimeter so that we get several circles touching each other. You need to arrange the sockets horizontally or vertically. Next, using a perforator and a special crown for reinforced concrete, we need to make several holes equal in depth to the thickness of the bottom plate. It is better to work in a respirator and goggles, and you can get rid of dust by leaning the socket of the vacuum cleaner against the wall, just below the holes to be drilled. Using a grinder and a disk on concrete (preferably with a diamond-coated coating), we cut through the strokes where the cable will be hidden. The depth of each groove should be about 1.5 cm, and if an antenna or satellite cable is required, then 2-3 cm. Then we connect the new electrical cable to the ends of the existing one. Previously, the wiring was made mainly of aluminum, and the new cables are made of copper, so special adapters on the latches are used to connect them together.To hide them, you will need to make small depressions in the wall using the same diamond disc.
