Please view our wide range of light switches and plug sockets in this listing.
Light Switches & Plug Sockets:
Our light switches and plug sockets are available with 4 different inserts:
G&H rocker and toggle light switches have a 10amp rating and are suitable for controlling both mains and low voltage lighting. All G&H light switches are 2 way. This means they can be used either on their own, or in combination with another switch to create a 2 way circuit (2 switches working together to control the same light circuit). If 3 or more switches are required on a circuit then the first two switches can be 2 way, but any additional switches must be intermediate.
To choose the correct dimmer switch you simply need to add the wattage of the bulbs you wish to dim and choose a dimmer with a suitable maximum load rating. For example, if you require a 1 gang dimmer switch to control 7 light bulbs, each with a rating of 50 watts, the load will be 7 x 50 = 350 watts. This means a dimmer switch with a maximum load rating of 400 watts would be suitable. Overloading a dimmer switch (exceeding the maximum load) can result in buzzing, overheating, lack of dimming capability and possible dimmer switch failure.
Our dimmer switches are available with 250w, 400w and 1000w load ratings. 250w dimmers have a minimum working load of 40w, 400w dimmers have a minimum working load of 60w and 1000w dimmers have a minimum working load of 150w (and are suitable for 700w low voltage VA). Underloading a dimmer switch (not meeting the minimum load) can result in buzzing, overheating, lack of dimming capability and possible dimmer switch failure. Please note these dimmer switches are not suitable for use with LED bulbs.
All G&H dimmer switches are operated by a push on / push off rotary control dimming knob. When you switch the dimmer on, the lights will resume at the same level as when they were switched off. The lights can then be dimmed up or down using the rotary control dimming knob.
G&H dimmer switches are suitable for both mains and low voltage circuits, up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer. They have a soft start feature and are ideal for use with mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs). G&H dimmers can also be used with GU10 or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (but these lamps must incorporate an internal fuse).
All G&H dimmer switches are 2 way. This means they can be used either on their own, or in combination with another switch to create a 2 way circuit (2 switches working together to control the same light circuit). Dimmers are available as 1 gang, 2 gang, 3 gang and 4 gang. Each gang will control an individual circuit and has a maximum load as specified on the dimmer (e.g. a 4 gang 400 watt dimmer switch can control 400 watts per gang).
The G&H range of switches and sockets are available in a range of different plate designs, finishes and colours. The switch range includes dimmer switches, rocker switches, toggle switches, 20 amp switches (for water heaters and other heavy duty requirements), 45 amp cooker switches, fan isolator switches (for isolating fans in bathrooms) and fused spur switches. The socket range includes 13 amp plug sockets, shaver sockets, 2 amp sockets and 5 amp sockets (for lamp plugs). In addition to this we also supply a full data point range including BT phone (master for the main line, slave for all other points), RJ45 (data communications) and coax, satellite, FM and phono speaker points.
