    I'm arranging a washing machine cable to exit a bathroom, thru an interior brick wall, to a FCU on the far side. Outside zone 2.

    Is there a 'pass tru' wall plate available for the bathroom side, maybe with a single gang back box, to tidy it up. Rather than just having the washing machine cable hanging out of a hole in the wall?

    If it exists I'm struggling to find the right search term.

    Thank y'all kindly

    Flex outlet plate - best with an inconspicuous outlet at the bottom, not a hole in the middle.

    You can have an FCU in the bathroom - even in zone 2 as long as it doesn't have a switch.

    You can have a switched FCU in the bathroom outside zone 2.

    A brush plate may be of use.

    I use bottom entry flex outlet plates in the room and take the flex straight through unmolested to an FCU on the other side of the wall

    I used these brushes called flex outlet plate, part of the LAP grid system, it allowed a host of cables to go between two rooms.
