    You should really only be using junction boxes, where they can be inspected with the minimum of effort. That's what the regs ask for anyway.
    Real world mate, just remember where they are in case you ever have a fault and need to access them.

    Johnny.

    Junction boxes are safe mate. They are widely used within the industry.
    It is just that they should be accessible for inspection.
    Like I said, real world. Junction boxes under floorboards are classed as
    accessible, but lets be honest, they never get inspected.
    The only problem's that may arise, is when the circuit is tested. If readings
    are incorrect, chances are, the j/b is the location of the fault.
    Saying that, if it is made off correctly, it shouldn't give you any problems.

    Johnny.
