What is a Toggle / Dolly Switch?
Toggle or Dolly Switches operate in the same way as a standard light switch. The difference is that the modern rocker is replaced by a more traditional toggle style switch. Many people prefer these as they are more representative of a period style switch or that they look more industrial or minimalist in contemporary environments.
Light Switches are generally available to switch 1 way and/or 2 way circuits. All of our Light Switches are 2 way versions and the beauty of this is that they can be used on both 1 way and 2 way circuits thus eliminating the need to buy both types. A 2 way circuit refers to a lighting point that can be switched from 2 different places i.e. Hall and Landing, where you might have a switch at the bottom of the stairs and a further switch at the top of the stairs that both control the same lighting point.
If you should have more than 2 switching positions you will require one of the switches to be a intermediate switch.
Our light switches are available from a single switch (One Gang) up to as many as 6 switches (Six Gang). The word “gang” refers to the rocker switch – for example if you require a triple light switch it would be 3 Gang.
Our light switches have a load rating of either 10amp or 20amp and the terminals will accept up to 3 x 1.5mm Twin & Earth Cables.
We recommend 16mm deep wall boxes for mounting our switches or 25mm deep wall boxes for shallow or flat plate Switches.
