Gone are the days when a power point was a boring white affair. Power points now come in a range of fabulous colours and styles and are designed for user-convenience, including such features as built-in USB charging ports and LED lighting.
Choosing which switch
Ikon Electrical can help you choose the right power outlets for your home. An average home will have around 30 – 40 power outlets so it can be an important decision. Rather than installing standard switches you might light to consider switches that suit the space. Different rooms – kitchen, studies, bathrooms and bedrooms – need to be lit and powered differently. You can incorporate fan, dimmer controls and timers into your switches. You can also choose features like audible on/off options and touch sensitive switches. You can even order custom-designed wall plates to meet your home’s specific technology needs. Weather proof power points and switches are also available for your outdoor areas.
You will never need to search for a charger again! The big advantages of inbuilt wall chargers are that they are energy-efficient, deliver a speedy charge (no cables), and include inbuilt current, surge and overheating protection. They are a very safe and efficient alternative to regular chargers. You can fit up to three USB chargers in a wall plate and can choose colours that match your décor. They meet five-star energy rating standards with very low standby power use.
There is so much to choose from in terms of aesthetic appeal. You can create your own unique look in your home by choosing from a wide range of colours and finishes. Finishes include metallic, heritage, minimalist, glass, classic European, and other textures. Surrounds can be chosen from a huge Laminex selection to match each room’s colour scheme perfectly.
