(Vertically orientated Character Grade pictured). A beautifully crafted oak pattress (20mm thick and measuring approximately 158mm X 95mm) complete with authentic reproduction 1/2 Way Bakelite Dolly Switches, reminiscent of times gone by. The perfect finishing touch to any room! Originally, switches like these were used from the 1920's through to the 1950's, although they look stunning in any home, regardless of period. They provide nostalgic appeal, whilst complying with today's electrical regulations and standards (BS EN 60669-1:1996 & IEC60669-1). The switches can be used for 1 or 2 way installations, and are rated up to 10amps. The switches are coloured dark brown. Suitable for installation either directly onto a masonry/plaster wall, or to a standard electrical wall box, orientated either vertically or horizontally. If you are fitting the pattress to a 1 gang wall box you will need a 1 Gang Adapter Plate, or if you are fitting it to a 2 gang wall box you will need a 2 Gang Adapter Plate, both of which can be purchased from our store. Oak has been used for centuries due to its intrinsic strength and natural beauty, and it makes the perfect mount for electrical fittings. We use high quality kiln dried oak, in a choice of 3 different grades, Refined, Character or Rustic, allowing you to choose the level of character you desire (see the HOME page for further information). Danish oil is used to prime, seal and finish the oak, enhancing the natural character of the wood.
