Wood in old wylex boxes

None of the ones I have seen appear to be oak - looked more like a softwood. --John Rumm 04:47, 11 March 2009 (GMT)

Thats a new one on me. NT 11:32, 11 March 2009 (GMT)

Its quite a long time since I worked on the wooden backed wylexes, I'd sooner rely on your memory on that.

However... Unless I'm mistook, all mains electrical accessories have required a non-flammable backbox since the 1930s. I would expect chemically treated softwood would be a logical replacement for oak. Given all this, should we be calling these boxes/plates flammable? It strikes me as probably not so.
