Hylec celebrates a decade of Debox – the junction box series

Hylec-APL celebrates 10 years since the launch of its Debox cable junction box series. Now extending to five models, to address different application use cases, Hylec-APL says the Debox in-line junction box family’s registered design features offer faster, more efficient and cheaper installation through its simple and virtually tool-free use. Millions of units of Debox have been sold during the decade since its launch.


Re-imagined and designed to speed up every installation, the original Debox S is a cost-effective, all-in-one cable junction box. Complete with a four-pole 24A UL/VDE-approved terminal block as standard, Debox S conforms to EN60598-1 (GWT 650°C). Pre-fitted with external fixing lugs for fast, easy mounting, Debox S comes complete with everything you need – including in-built cable clamps and locking clip – for rapid, simple and virtually tool-free installation. 


Debox SL introduced the first ever completely tool-free in-line electrical junction box. Now featuring a new easier-to-use, double-lever screwless terminal block, Debox SL offers maintenance-free connections. Its safe, fast and reliable tool-free assembly is supplied complete with a four-pole 16A connector block, capable of accommodating two, three or four conductors in round or flat profile cable for lighting circuits or power. 


Debox SL2 is the smallest junction box available with five poles. Each 32A screwless lever connector can take up to three conductors and the box features unique push-fit cable clamps. Debox SL2 saves valuable time and makes installation easier for smaller and larger internal wiring jobs, as everything needed is supplied with the box and there is no need to use a screwdriver to securely join wires or mount the box itself. 


Debox SM40 is the first four-pole in-line junction box that fits through a 40mm aperture, yet still retains generous cable management space, making Debox SM40 ideal for use in LED lighting applications. As with all Debox junction boxes, Debox SM40 comes ready for use, supplied with everything needed, including the terminal block, making connection simpler and easier. The miniature Debox SM40 is only half the volume of Debox S or SL, making it the most compact four-pole junction box available, according to Hylec-APL. 


Debox 11 is a surface-mounted junction box for external weatherproof applications. It comes with 10 soft membrane-covered cable entries, providing quick puncture-entry and self-sealing rated to IP66. Eight entries are threaded M20, ideal for cable glands, with no need for an internal locknut, offering an even higher protection rating than IP67. Five three-pole screwless connectors are supplied and the housing is made of flame-retardant, impact-resistant polypropylene.
