Install a socket from a fused spur
Is it possible to run a socket from a 13amp switched fused spur that is already a spur?
4 Answers from MyBuilder Electricians
If the 13 amp fused spur is on the ring circuit and you want to add a socket to the load side of the fused spur yes that is fine as that individual socket will be protected by the 13a fuse in the spur.
If unsure please call a qualified electrician to carry out your works to be on the safe side.
Wish you all the best.

Hi there, you can run as many sockets as you like( the number would be determined by the area ie. 50 sqm or 100 sqm, anyway one or even ten would be absolutely fine and safe) from a 13amp fused spur switch.
Hope this helps. That is the theory part but in real life always leave the job to be done by professional electricians and stay safe

It's a job for a qualified electrician. If it's a fused connection unit on a ring then yes. If it's a spur fed by a single cable then no.
