To order modules for your modular plate, please visit the Choose Your Modules page.

Modular Plates

Make your own socket and switch plates to fit your needs. Just choose the plate size and then add the modules up the maximum for that plate. For example a 2 Gang module plate can have two single size (thin) modules and a 4 Gang plate can have four single size (thin) modules.

A double module (the size of two singles) is easy to spot as it has a square shape - if you choose a double module you obviously can have fewer single modules e.g. a 4 Gang plate can have one double and two single modules (instead of the normal four singles).

One last thing, choose your module colour to match the plate/trim, so a module plate with a white trim usually has white modules in it.

The Burnished Flat Burnished Copper Range

The superior quality Hand Forged ranges are crafted by hand in our UK workshop and has been designed in line with Rustic styling methods that would suit older traditional interiors and Barn Conversions.

The stylish Hammered plate finish with Hammered detail gives the Hammered Copper and Hammered English Pewter ranges a unique look ideal for old style interiors. These Hand Forged plates are made from a 2mm thick Sheet Copper or Pewter Tin. It is then cut and hand forged on the face using a hand held cross-peen hammer which gives this range a unique beaten look.

We also offer both the Copper and Pewter in its Natural State ‐ these two plates are simply cut and lightly indented on the face which leaves a plainer and more flat finish.

We then lightly polish them to reveal the beauty of the raw and natural metal finish that these materials possess.

Every plate will look different and enrich and slightly change as it ages on your wall. Over time each plate develops its own unique patina. Buying these plates is similar to buying natural stone flooring ‐ every one is unique and slightly different from the other.

The Waxed Copper range is actually made using a Steel Plate which has then been burnished by hand then waxed to give it the waxed copper effect. This plate naturally ages and the appearance of the plate changes over time.

We have supplied these switches to the finest Farm Houses and Country Cottages in England as well as Barn Conversions and period properties all over the UK. They have even been supplied to a landmark Castle and are used in the kitchens and other rooms at this prestigious tourist attraction.

This range includes the highest quality electrical switches on the market today, made by Wandsworth these Copper switches come with a 25 year guarantee against mechanical and electrical failure to give you the confidence that these switches will last the test of time.

If you need a Rustic hand forged look, the Hand Forged range of Electrical Accessories is the range for you.

14 May 2020 by , Derby - Verified Customer

Nice oily look which was just what I was after. I have a modern property and these switches go so well even though they look old style. I also bought some sockets with steel on/off switches to go with these and they also look the part. Brilliant find (both the company and the items).

Product Rating 1 out of 5      Burnished Flat Pewter
29 October 2019 by , Bristol - Verified Customer

We had our new kitchen fitted with all the sockets being of the Burnished Flat Pewter Range supplied by this company. We used delicate surface frogtape to cover them whilst painting and when we took the frogtape off it took all the finish off the switches to create a mottled effect - they were wrecked. The company fobbed us off saying it was moisture damage. The items are not fit for purpose. Do not buy!

We welcome and thank you for your feedback as it gives us an opportunity to resolve issues.

When we spoke on the phone we were trying to understand the issue and what had happened to your switches and sockets as it was not clear on the initial explanation, the photo we requested to find out more was not clear and based on this incomplete information, we made the suggestion of potential watermarking on the metal plate due to the moisture in the plaster and the paint due to the supplied plastic gaskets not being fitted. The gaskets form a moisture barrier which sit between the wall / plaster / paint and the metal front plate.

Then, after speaking to your decorator we understood more of what had happened. The normal practice of removing the wall plates completely when decorating had not been done, neither had you simply loosened the screws to slightly pull the socket or switch plate off the wall to paint behind them but instead the plates were taped over with Frog-Tape. We believe that when this tape was torn off you have pulled the protective lacquer layer off the plate which has resulted in the mottled effect you refer to. The lacquer layer is designed to resist pushing, rubbing and knocks into the plate and is not bonded to resist pulling forces as this does not happen in normal use; therefore we cannot say with certainty what the outcome will be when the protective lacquer is pulled away from the rest of the plate.

As it says on the Frog-Tape instructions (we have used it before) and their website "In all cases please test on an inconspicuous area first." even on the delicate tape version.

As we were not completely sure on the exact cause, we asked for you to return one plate so we could confirm which was correct and then discuss a course of action. However Rebecca decided to leave a bad and inaccurate review on something we had not even had a chance to confirm, before ordering even more sockets straight away from us - this despite stating "The items are not fit for purpose. Do not buy!".

Apart from Rebecca's issue there are two important things to note for all metal socket and switch owners when it comes to decorating

First, please use the plastic gaskets supplied to protect the metal socket or switch from the moisture on freshly plastered or decorated walls. This prevents the possibility of the moisture affecting the plate if fitted correctly. In all metal sockets and switches we supply, this gasket comes as standard in the box. Plastic sockets and switches being water resistant do not need the gasket.

Please do not apply tape of any kind to the front of any sockets and switches (metal and plastic) as this can have an effect on the finish, marking the item. Normal decorating practice is to loosen the plate away from the way taking any precautions necessary, for example switching off the electricity, so you can paint behind the socket or switch, preferably leaving the paint to dry before tightening up the screws again. Still use the gasket as there can be residual moisture. This method also leaves a better finish.

We are happy to discuss this further with you if you would like to get in contact.
