Hi all

I have a shed which is fed from a 13A FCU in the Kitchen. Inside the shed, SWA cable goes straight into a socket. There is one FCU on a spur from that socket that feeds a fluorescent light. I would like to add two led spotlights to the wall so I can see whilst I work. How should I do this? My socket can fit no more wires in it and I don't want them connected to flex.

Any help :help:

Either the output from the FCU in shed or the fluorescent, I would assume a switched FCU and that switch turns lights on and off?

You would take live or switched feed from fluorescent tube fitting if you used switched when fluorescent tube is on spotlights will be on

Yes it is a switched FCU.

Could I replace the switched FCU with an unswitched and then use junction boxes to have two separate switches for the lights (like a lighting circuit)?

Thanks

To be honest you could keep fcu you already have and add switches after that
