5 Tips for Choosing the Best Modular Switches and Sockets

When planning and setting up your home, there are multiple points of attention to cater to, ranging from furniture and furnishings to electronic devices and their consequent set-ups. This is where the role of light switches and electrical sockets comes into play. These features effectively act as a link between the user and the appliance connected to it, since switches essentially stop and start an electric circuit. Some of the standout tips to consider while choosing modular switches and sockets can be elaborated on below.

1. Design

It goes without saying, it is important to consider the design and aesthetics of any appliance in your home. The secret to a beautiful home is in the details. Switch covers can even be personalised to perfectly match your home theme or to capture and display your memories. With numerous product lines designed to cater to diverse tastes and requirements from around the world, you can easily find the electrical switches and sockets that will blend seamlessly with your home interior and complement its style.

2. Quality of Materials

One of the other important aspects for interested buyers is to look at the type of material that is used in making the switches and sockets. Furthermore, modern electrical brands specialise in making fire and shock resistant switches and sockets. These appliances can notably reduce the risk of electrical fires in the home and office settings.

 

In addition, buyers are able to reduce their environmental impact and minimize their CO2 footprint through purchasing switches and sockets with Green Premium  certification.

3. Connectivity & Accessibility

In today’s day and age, most of us have friends and family members living abroad. In most cases, when they come over for a holiday, they have to carry or purchase, adapters and extensions to plug-in their phones and/or laptops. Modern modular switches effectively solve this problem by offering support for multiple pin-types or even USB outlets.

4. Child Safety

Electrical safety is a fundamental concern for households consisting of youngsters and/or toddlers. Modular switches offer enhanced safety in comparison to conventional socket designs for children with retracting shutters and support for devices which can automatically disconnect current flow when accidents are detected.

 

5. Repair & Replacement

In the traditional form, replacing faulty switches is full of hassles. Commonly, the entire faceplate needs to be unscrewed, then the faulty switch is taken out and replaced, and then the face plate is put back in place. Often, lifting the face plate can damage the wallpaper or paint around it, giving a tarnished look to your carefully planned decor. New modular electrical switches and sockets offer a more convenient solution. Instead of detaching the whole plate, a faulty electrical switch can be replaced by a front-loading mechanism that enables easy disconnection of a particular switch or socket on the plate.

 

Schneider Electric is just one of the many players in the realm of electrical switches & sockets. The prominent ranges offered include – AvatarOn, NEO, Ulti, ZENcelo.

I had a room which needs renovating and Visionary Interior absolutely helped me achieve my dream man cave. My project was handed by Yong Ren and he did an extremely good job ensuring everything was done nicely. Although there was delay in installing a custom-build table, Yong Ren managed the situation well, ensuring that I am always updated with the progress. Will definitely recommend these guys here for any of your interior designing needs.

I’m Mike and on behalf of my family, we wanted to thank you and everyone at Polygon workspace Interior for the wonderful cabinets you supplied for our home. How thrilled we are with our kitchen cabinets! The quality of the cabinets is superb & excellent. The color we selected was just what we wanted and everything matched so well! We had looked for quite a few IDs and did comparison. We could not find any cost effective price with the same quality you offered.. I chose Polygon Workspace Interior primarily because of their high quality and value. My designer Mr. Shawn Lee made us feel comfortable with the remodeling process. Mr A.Z is very professional! He is very patient, really listened and worked closely to incorporate & share collaborative ideas. Their installers were great too, they showed up on time when they were supposed to.
Overall Satisfaction! I’m very, very pleased with their tiptop service and I would definitely recommend them to anybody! Well done! Best of Success!!

Peter
