I am trying to find an answer for a question on boxes in concrete

According to rule 12-3010 aluminium & sectional boxes shall not be used in concrete which leaves non-sectional or utility .....which one is the correct one?

How would you mount the switch box to the plywood form?

Thanks Robbie

It didn't mention MB type in the question, but I knew MB was the type normally used from another question on the ESAT CSA cd.

Thats why it kinda got me scratching my head as there was only non-sectional or utility (what is a utility box made of?)
Could it still be either non-sectional or utility?

Just another question, I found that thomas betts site awhile ago and dled alot of the catalogues.
I am trying to get a better knowledge of the differences in names/terms etc of electrical gear from Australia (ie marrettes are called BP's over here)

Just wondering if there are any other sites that have maybe catalogues I could download....what are the major wholesalers in Canada for electrical gear?
