Set Descending Direction

There are many different electrical fittings installed in a building. These include bulb fixtures, ceiling lights and wall lights amongst others. Unlike removable appliances that require power sockets, these need wall switches to control them as they are connected directly to the main line. There are lots of different types of switches available that can be installed in a building.

Unlike bland traditional switches, the designs available today in are appealing and can blend in with different decorations and styles. One of the most popular is the stainless steel light switch, it has plate finish which makes it attractive and versatile for blending in rooms having varying interior designs. Though the basic purpose of the switches is to turn device on and off, it does not necessarily imply that they have to be an eyesore. 

Factors to consider

While buying wall switches, there are a few factors that can assist in choosing the right switch.  

One-way vs two way: There are mainly two types of switches available – one way and two ways. A one-way switch has two connections and when it is turned on they are connected. A two-way light switch acts like two one-way switches combined. It has three connection points and at any given time, two of them are connected. A two-way one may be used when there is a need to control the same light fixture from two different places.

Number of Switches: There are different types of fixtures available that may contain a single light switch or multiple ones. For small areas such as stairs or storerooms, a single switch may suffice while for areas that have multiple lights or electrical equipment installed, there is the option of two, three or even four gang wall switches that can control all the fixtures in the area.

Build Quality: Multiple switches are available based on their build quality and material used for construction. Switches like all other electrical equipment must be of highest quality to prevent shocks and fire hazards and ensure safety. These come in different types of materials that include ceramic, plastic and metals. Stainless steel light switch are quite popular as they combines durability with style and safety. They are quite sturdy and do not crack or break easily like plastic switches. The life expectancy is also quite high as they are rust proof and can last for decades without the need for replacement.

Load Capacity: Every light switch is assigned an amp rating that determines the load it can support. A switch that has a 10amp rating will be able to run most electrical fixtures easily. While installing a switch, care must be taken not to overload it, and more than one switch may be used if required to prevent compromising safety. Ideally, only one large fixture or a few small fixtures should be connected to each stainless steel light switch while ensuring the load on it is within its rated load capacity.
