A la Mode wiring accessories from Scolmore

Scolmore’s Click Mode range of stylish, contemporary, white wiring accessories remains the company’s best-selling wiring accessories collection to date, and is a must-have product range for wholesalers.

The range was conceived and developed as a high quality, flexible and modern solution for virtually any domestic wiring requirement. The smooth, contemporary lines of the Mode accessory plate will fit easily into traditional and contemporary designs alike. The modular design allows installers unprecedented flexibility in creating dedicated wiring solutions to deal specifically with actual wiring needs.

When selecting wiring accessories, installers have often had to compromise their schemes, as they have been unable to identify a suitably flexible solution to satisfy their ideas. Mode accessories have been providing that flexibility, with a comprehensive selection of products ranging from the humble light switch and socket outlet through to more specialised products dealing with the very latest developments in telephone and satellite products.

Scolmore has continued to invest in this range since it was originally launched, introducing products in visually contrasting versions to meet with Part M regulations. In 2016, the company added the award-winning Mode locating plug socket to the range. It was designed to assist people with impaired vision or poor hand to eye coordination to more easily insert a plug into a socket. The contoured shape of the front plate guides the earth pin into position, and it is this plug guide which gives the product a greater focus on usability and means its use can be extended to situations where a socket isn’t easily accessible.

The locating plug socket is available in one and two-gang options, with the two-gang version featuring outboard rockers to further assist with distinguishing between switches, making it less likely to switch the wrong one.

Other innovations for the range include the addition of USB sockets – now available in oneand two-gang, and single and twin USB options. In 2018 a 3-pin safety shutter socket, which exceeds the required safety standards, was launched. It features a safety shutter that cannot be operated using only one terminal – it requires correct insertion of all three pins of a standard UK plug.

The Mode range comprises Switches, Power Socket Outlets, Fused Connection Units and Control Switches, plus TV, Telephone and Data Sockets.

All of Scolmore’s white moulded and Mode Part M wiring accessories are manufactured using Urea Formaldehyde, which has similar inherent properties to antimicrobial additives that inhibit the growth of infectious diseases. All products independently tested achieved a 99.99% kill off rate across all four types of the strains of bacteria – MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and Klebsiella Pneumoniae.

Products from the Mode range have been specified and installed across a huge range of applications including schools, hospitals, care homes, hotels, offices and leisure complexes. The range of accessories is covered by a ‘No Quibble Guarantee’ against any fault in materials or manufacture experienced at any time within 20 years of the date of supply.
