Scolmore - the definitive choice for luxury seaside homes
Sand Banks in Broad Haven is a new development of luxury four bedroom homes from Waterstone Homes, situated in a stunning location by the sea in West Wales. When it came to selecting wiring accessories to suit the contemporary design and sophistication of these spacious family homes, Scolmore’s Definity Screwless range was chosen.
Definity front plates in chrome were used with white back plates in all areas of the 12, detached and semi-detached, high-specification properties, with switches, USB sockets, media plates, new media modules and 6-gang GridPro plates among the products installed in the living areas, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways and landings.
The range was chosen for its smooth lines which suit the contemporary style of the properties and the screwless plates add to the overall clean finish. A key element in the selection of Definity is that they allow the installer to fit the back plates, with the decorators then able to complete the painting of the rooms before the front plates are simply clipped on. For the homeowner, they offer a simple solution to future decoration projects, allowing the plates to be easily removed and then replaced upon completion. They can also change the colour of the front plate in future to meet any décor requirements.
Each Definity wiring accessory comprises an insert and a decorative cover plate. The plates are available in six different finishes – polished chrome, stainless steel, brushed steel, black, white and red.
Scolmore’s Flow connectors were also specified and installed as part of the lighting provision in the properties. They were chosen for their versatility and speed of installation.
Gareth Davies, electrical contractor with Coast Electrical, was responsible for installing the products and had this to say: “I have been working with Scolmore for over five years now and have always found the service to be brilliant. They are always very helpful and very quick to respond to any requests. The Definity products were specified by the developer and I haven’t actually used the range before, but they were great to work with and easy to install. They certainly met the criteria to allow the decorators to complete the painting once the back plates were fitted before the front plates were added. They provide a really sleek and stylish finish and I’d certainly be using them again.”
