HANDMADE SWITCHES AND PLYWOOD SOCKETS
Thanks to the fact that we use plywood, our switches and electrical sockets have a natural, wooden character, and at the same time they are offered at a very attractive price. That is why we can confidently say that we create an authentic, modern plywood design tailored to the needs of our customers.
Switch Concept electrical switches and sockets are an alternative to the ubiquitous typical electrical equipment made of plastic, very expensive porcelain or metal.
The design of the Switch Concept is original and bold, yet subtle and light. Our three series - SC, CC, V are based on the shape of a square and a circle. Their characteristic and common point are delicate frames made of plywood and metal rocker switches referring to the retro, industrial or loft style.
LEVER SWITCHES - A REFERENCE TO RETRO AND VINTAGE STYLE
The mechanisms of lever systems that we use are produced in France. They are also used in industry - among other things, for the production of machines, airplanes and boats. Thanks to this, you can be sure about their quality and durability for years.
TYPES OF ELECTRICAL SWITCHES:
The offer of Switch Concept switches consists of several types. Depending on the function and the way of use, we can list the following types of fasteners:
switch (on/off) - to control one or more lighting circuits
stair switch - adapted to work in pairs - thanks to such switches, the same lighting circuit can be started and disconnected independently from two places, e.g. at the bottom and top of the stairs
cross switch - is an extension of the functionality of stair switches. Installing it in a circuit with stair switches allows us to create an additional control point between them.
roller shutter switch - the roller shutter switch allows us to control the roller shutter or gate system. Its position is always fixed (in the middle), only when the switch is held in the up or down position, it starts the motor.
two-position momentary switch - is a solution that can work with the smart smart home system. It works similarly to a roller shutter switch, but it needs to be connected to the appropriate SMART system module to perform the functions assigned to it.

SAFETY AND FIRE RESISTANCE OF WOODEN SWITCHES AND SOCKETS
The mechanisms of both switches and sockets used in our products are tested, certified and produced by large electrotechnical companies. We use ready-made elements that we matched to our plywood frames.
Surely you have thought about the question: is the use of plywood safe? What if there is a short circuit in the socket?
We are not madmen, safety is our priority, which is why our switches and sockets are entirely covered with a suitable varnish with an increased fire resistance class. Such varnish not only protects the plywood from fire, but also protects it from dirt and has an antistatic effect.
INSTALLATION OF SURFACE SWITCHES
The installation of our products is very simple. Any electrician can handle it. There are no special conditions that must be met to install our accessories.
All Switch Concept frames are adapted to be mounted in traditional electrical boxes with a diameter of 60mm - just attach them with screws.
The wires in the connectors are mounted using a screw clamp, which guarantees a strong connection and good current conductivity.
To make the process of connecting our fittings as simple as possible, here is a list of a few tips:
In all places where you want to install our accessories, use electrical boxes with screws.
Electrical boxes should be flush with the wall as much as possible after applying the plaster.
If electrical boxes are embedded below the plaster, use spacer rings so as to extend the box fixing to the front as much as possible.
We recommend installing deep boxes, i.e. boxes with a depth of at least 60 mm
RESISTANCE TO DIRT AND MAINTENANCE OF PLYWOOD
The varnish that covers our frames and front plates is resistant to dirt, UV rays and even alcohol. It has a higher class of fire resistance and abrasion resistance. It also has an antistatic effect, moving dust particles away from each other.
Cleaning the frames and front plates does not require any special means. To get rid of dirt resulting from normal use, you can use a damp cloth or any other means for cleaning furniture or wooden surfaces.
