What is a 16 Amp Double Pole Switch?

16 Amp Double Pole switches are available in various types some with Neon indicator lights and others with cord outlet holes in the front. 16 Amp Double Pole Switches are generally used with Electrical appliances that need to be hard-wired as opposed to using a Plug and Socket. They are usually protected by a fuse or circuit breaker in a consumer unit or fuse board. Typical examples could be Washing Machines, Tumble Driers, Dishwashers or Large Storage Heaters and Water Heaters etc the terminology Double Pole (DP) means that the switch breaks both the Live and the Neutral poles – this is widely regarded as the safest way to isolate an electrical load.

These switches are often used instead of a Switched Fused Spur when the load is likely to be greater than 13 amps or the appliance has a surge at start up. In these circumstances fused protection should be offered at the consumer unit.

You can choose to have a neon indicator light that will show you when the appliance is live.

Our 16 Amp double pole switches have 2 live and neutral terminals.

We recommend 25mm deep wall boxes for mounting our 16 Amp double pole switches or 35mm deep wall boxes for shallow or flat plate ranges.
