    подрозетник in English

    How do you call these things in English:

    It's a thing where you put an electric socket. In a wall, it looks like this:

    It's strange enough, but I haven't find any translation in any language; only for English Lingvo offered, "Manchester plate"... but I can't believe you really call it like that. In Russian, we call it "подрозетник".
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    According to this:
    http://www.freepatentsonline.com/7074078.html



    Part 21 is called 'wall box'

    So it would be 'a wall box for an electric socket assembly'.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    In the United States this thing is called an "outlet box":
    outlet box - a housing used to mount an electrical system or make electrical connections. The box itself is often metallic and rectangular in shape, but can be made in other shapes and of nonmetallic materials.

    Here are some examples with photos: http://www.homeandbeyond.com/outlet-boxes---covers.html

    In the UK I think it is called a "socket box":
    Fitting and fixing socket boxes into plasterboard is a really simple operation. . . . Hold the socket box in position and mark round it with a pencil.

    A "Manchester plate" is another thing-it is a type of storage battery: http://www.answers.com/topic/manchester-plate
    See what it looks like in figure 64 on page 153 of this book: http://tinyurl.com/yjn2hgk
