    Hi, Would value the benefit of your expertise.

    I've got a radial circuit with just one double socket on it, protected by 20A circuit breaker.

    I'd like to fit a couple of fixed 500W panel heaters into the circuit before the socket. Can I do this ....?

    Consumer Unit
    I
    Junct Box - FCU - 500W panel heater
    I
    Junct Box - FCU - 500W panel heater
    I
    Double Socket

    Or better - can I cut the junction boxes out and wire directly from the back of the FCU's?

    Or is there a better way?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, that's fine.

    You can connect the FCUs directly on the circuit.
