UK’s shallowest grid modules for easy fit solution

Hager claims that its sollysta grid wiring accessories are the easiest on the market to install. The modules have the shallowest projection currently available, at just 10mm from the faceplate, to maximise cabling space in the back box.

UK’s shallowest grid modules for easy fit solution

For installation the modules clip in from the front of the metal frame rather than the back. This makes them easy to fit and to replace and ensures that you cannot push them into the back box.

Wiring is also simplified with the terminals all facing upwards for easier orientation with lead ins to guide the screwdriver, backed off screws held captive, wire end stops and clear white labelling off a dark grey background.

The frame is rigid to avoid deformation during installation and its design even makes it possible to access the switch terminals after you have fitted the switches in to the frame. For six and eight gang applications the frames clip together to ease alignment.

Says Jane Yorke, product manager for Hager: "We have conducted extensive research for the development of the whole sollysta range. Grid products are a fact of life in today’s market, but contractors often find that they are hard to fit. Our design has largely overcome these issues.

"In common with the rest of the sollysta range we have also introduced a grid system that has particular aesthetic appeal for the end user. Our research showed that both contractors and end users wanted a fresh rounded appearance that also suggests something solid and substantial. Like the rest of the sollysta range the grid faceplates have a subtle curved profile with rounded edges. They also have a slight indentation around the switches to further soften the look."

Several different modules are available together with a range of printed switches for kitchen grid applications.
