Sockets We Install
- Type G Sockets: The standard socket, the Type G, is distinguished by its three rectangular pins set in a triangular formation. The inclusion of a grounding pin contributes to safety. Generally, these sockets carry a rating of 13 amps. Single sockets feature one outlet, and double sockets have two. The double-outlet socket remains the most widespread.
- USB Outlets: USB sockets are an increasingly popular choice in many UK homes. Alongside the traditional Type G plug-ins, these sockets feature one or more USB ports, permitting the direct charging of USB-enabled devices like smartphones and tablets.
- Outdoor Sockets: These are designed to withstand the elements and are weatherproof and dust-sealed. They carry a specific IP (Ingress Protection) rating indicating their resilience against various weather conditions.
- RCD Sockets: These sockets have a Residual Current Device (RCD) for additional safety. They offer protection against electric shocks, especially for outdoor appliances with a higher risk of contact with water.
- Floor Sockets: These are installed directly into the floor instead of the wall and are often used in commercial environments or homes where wall sockets would be impractical.
- Smart Sockets: A more recent invention, these sockets can be operated remotely through a smartphone app and programmed to switch on or off at specified times.
Switches We Install
- Single-Pole Switches: The most common switch type, responsible for controlling a single light or gadget from one location.
- Double-Pole Switches: A double-pole switch can control two circuits.
- Two-Way Switches: These switches, unique to the UK, are deployed to govern a single device from two disparate locations, such as switching a hallway light on or off from either entrance.
- Dimmer Switches: Dimmer switches are favoured in living rooms, bedrooms, and dining rooms where lighting adjustment is required.
- Pull Cord Switches: Often located in bathrooms or other wet areas, these switches are triggered by pulling a cord.
- Smart Switches: Allow for remote operation through smartphone applications, home automation systems, or voice-command devices such as Amazon Echo or Google Home.
