13A Splash proof extension lead (RCD options)

  • Sale
  • Regular price £19.99


This lead is designed to connect appliances with a standard 13A UK plug. It is not compatible with plug RCDs (an RCD plug is much larger than a standard 13A plug, and will have test/reset buttons) or 16A European plugs. 

Perfect for heavy duty high current applications, the lead has an IP54 rated single socket. This means that the socket is protected against water spraying from any angle. We would advise that it is suitable for temporary use outdoors, where the socket is not left outside for prolonged periods. For longer term or commercial use, our weatherproof extension lead would be more suitable.

Available with either:

  • No RCD - Please only consider this option if you are sure that the socket you will be connecting the extension lead to is already RCD protected. See Do I need an RCD? for further guidance.
  • In-line (30mA) RCD - An RCD is a life-saving device which is designed to reduce the risk of receiving a fatal electric shock. The unit is IP66 rated weatherproof. The in-line RCD is vital if the socket you will be connecting the extension lead to is not already be RCD protected.
  • Plug RCD - As above, but the RCD is built into the plug, which must only be used indoors and will not fit into an outside socket.
