About Gang box

As the name suggests, the gang box is a ‘ganging’ mechanism for different kinds of switchboard components. The gang box would contain different elements of the switchboard like switches, sockets, regulators, etc.

The number of ‘gangs’ in the gang box would decide how wide it is and also how many devices can be fitted into it. For example, a 1 gang box would be sufficient for 1 device like a socket and switch.
