Go from Dull to Designer with Modular Switches
Selecting switches in previous times was one easy task, as there were not too many options available in the market. There were only push-button light switches or old toggle light switches and deciding switches for your home from limited options is surely very easy. But, nowadays the choice isn’t that easy as now our concerns go around colours, textures, trims, finishes, matching to walls and quality. And after going through all these major concerns, we come to a conclusion of buying switches.
Besides those old switches, there are new switches that are ruling the market, which is a modular switch. A Modular switch is a modern version of traditional switches. These switches are safer and more convenient to use. And besides the variety in shapes, sizes, and colours, there are several other features:
• Anti-weld designs
• Smooth operation
• No visibility of screws
• Shuttered sockets
• Ease in installation and assembling
• Front loading
Advantages of modular switches:
1. Child-Proof Sockets / Safety
Modular switches are generally childproof as kids in the home tend to insert finger in the switches, for that modular switches are made up with the concept of childproofing. These switches are totally enclosed at the edges and have shutter safe sockets which do not let kids insert the finger in the switchboard.
2. Colours and Designs
Modular switches come in a variety of colours and designs to suit different homes, designs, and wall colours. These switches add to the decoration of the home and office spaces giving an elegant look to space. Also, it has no visibility of screws which is a bonus as the visibility of screws steal the visual appeal of home interiors.
