Scolmore goes above and beyond with new Safety Socket range

Scolmore has launched a new range of Safety Sockets, designed to exceed the required safety standards, and offer electrical protection across a range of applications including healthcare, social housing and school installations.

The new products are the result of increasing demand from specifiers working on domestic and commercial projects where improved safety features are beneficial, such as hospitals, schools and nurseries.

The sockets feature a modified safety shutter operation, which means that it cannot be operated using only one terminal – it requires correct insertion of all three pins of a standard UK plug.

Features that prevent any improper use include:
● Split earth with upper stopping barrier
● Locating tabs on the shutter
●The shutter is spring loaded – removing the plug will cause the shutter to return to its original fixed position.
● Double pole switching as standard, with twin/clean earth available.

The products conform with BS1363 – 13 A plugs, sockets-outlets, adaptors and connection units.

The new range comprises 1 gang versions, 2 gang inboard rockers and 2 gang outboard rockers and they feature in Scolmore’s Mode, Part M, POLAR and Metal Clad ranges.

All Mode and Part M Safety Sockets are Antimicrobial Certified and have a 20-year guarantee against any fault in materials or manufacture.
