I have found MK MASTERSEAL PLUS 13A 2 GANG SWITCHED SOCKET (98279) £49 for each double - to protect sockets in pottery studio. Some sockets not being used.. is it safe to just put cover plate over and use silicone sealant on unused ones in area where wet spillage is likely? Setting up a new professional studio.
I guess the best would be something like what you see on this page: https://goo.gl/s9yd5E GFCI (RCD) on each outlet will result in only a local switch off in case of a faulty device, but it may cost some more. (Not mutch more if this page has realistic pricing) Ebay: https://goo.gl/WNMdTj
As I know the UK system you have pretty heavy fuses, and use smaller fuses in each socket, it should have been the European standard!
Good luck from Norway!

I'm sorry, but we don't do DIY questions here at ECN, you need to engage the services of a qualified Electrician. Even so, anything in a wet area needs to be permanently connected, with cable glands for the inlet and outlet sides and sealed to IP55 at least.
Silicone sealant is available in neutral-cure as well, Texas-Ranger, that acid stuff is only for roofing and sealing around plumbing exposures.
