About Vexbox

Vexbox is a universal template for single or twin electrical back boxes, providing a tidier and more efficient method of installation and more importantly, at the same time, will reinstate the fire proof integrity of the wall. Whether it’s new builds or refurbishments, the surrounding wall can be finished to a superior standard as the product extends the box flush with the plasterboard.
