A single rocker switch on a Victorian style plate made from solid brass with a Polished Chrome finish.

The Victorian plate is flat with simple clean styling that was a characteristic of the Victorian era when practicality and simplicity were the focus. It will suit many styles from traditional and period to contemporary. It can be fitted directly to the wall, but if preferred can be mounted onto a wooden pattress (see link below). This gives the benefit of extra space for the wiring (enabling it to be used with a 25mm back box), and can also cover up messy plastering that might otherwise be visible. Using a pattress with any item in this range also complements our period dome switches.

Polished chrome has a bright shiny mirror finish that can be cleaned occasionally with a soft cloth with wax polish.The high quality rocker switch mechanism is made in the UK by Wandsworth and is rated at 20A. It is available as 2 Way, Intermediate, Double Pole or Rectractive. A 2 way switch is suitable for lights that only require switching from up to 2 places, whereas the intermediate switch would be required if the light is to be operated from more than 2 places (for example in hallways and on landings). The double pole switch can operate more than one circuit and the retractive switch is push to make (ie it doesn't toggle between an on position and an off position) so it is used for operating items such as window blinds or door access systems.

A particular feature of our rocker switches is that the plate can be taken off easily (leaving the connections safely in place) for example for redecoration purposes or for cleaning of unlacquered plates so that you don't risk getting polish on your wall.

We highly recommend using a minimum 35mm depth backbox with this product to give a comfortable amount of space for the grid (the switch or socket mechanism) and wiring behind the plate.
