With the “plastered-in dowel” from Primo, the Equipment carrier GET-80, the drill has a break for a while. Because today’s electrician screws the mounting plate of the luminaires directly to the Equipment carrier – without drilling and inserting dowels! The cover is screwed onto the inserted Flush mounting box with two screws and the wall is plastered.
The installation surface of the Equipment carrier was designed with various openings. Luminaires and other devices with screws up to 4 mm in diameter can be mounted on the Equipment carrier without drilling and setting dowels, thus saving time and costs. Let’s not forget, of course, that due to the careful design of the matching Thermo boxes, all cables and conduits are inserted in the rear part of the box. This guarantees that no cables or conduits are damaged during luminaire assembly.

Frequently asked questions
What does the plasterer say about the covers for the Thermo box system?
We hope he says: I WANT IT! According to VOB/C, the trades must be protected in accordance with DIN 18299. This means that the plasterer must ensure that the set flush mounting boxes remain clean. This is possible in no time with both covers of the Thermo box system. The optimum plaster thickness of 10 mm is always achieved. The box is quickly found and wall damage that arises when the electrician has to search for the box is eliminated. Plasterers and electricians become friends.
Why is drilling no longer necessary with the Equipment carrier?
The mounting surface of the Primo Equipment carrier was designed with various openings. Luminaires and other devices with screws up to 4 mm in diameter can be mounted on the Equipment carrier without drilling and setting dowels, thus saving time and costs.
How do I open the Equipment carrier?
Due to the Signal pins, the Equipment carrier is easily found even after plastering. We have provided a predetermined breaking point so that the cover can be opened carefully with the hammer. Alternatively, the cover can also be opened with a 35 mm holesaw.
Nobody needs an Equipment carrier, do they?
With Primo’s “plastered-in dowel”, the drill has a break for a while. Because today’s electrician screws the mounting plate of the luminaires directly to the Equipment carrier – without drilling and inserting dowels! Of course, let’s not forget: due to the careful design of the Thermo boxes, all cables and conduits are inserted in the rear part of the box. This guarantees that no cables or conduits are damaged during luminaire assembly.
Does the Equipment carrier protect the inside of the box against plaster?
Yes, certainly! However, the box is found quickly and without wall damage due to the Signal pins. The Equipment carrier is suitable for 35 mm openings. For standard openings of 60 mm, we recommend the Universal plaster cover for the Primo Thermo box system. The practical helper is placed on the box and simply pressed in after plastering, or removed with a 68 mm holesaw. The result? Clean plaster edge. Plaster damage is a thing of the past!
I have set a flush mounting box with a 60 mm opening. This is too large for the luminaire base. What can I do?
The customer suddenly wants lamps with an extra narrow lamp base? No problem with the Primo Equipment carrier. The cover is screwed on to the inserted Flush mounting box with two screws, the wall is plastered and the narrow lamp base is fixed directly to the mounting surface of the Equipment carrier.
