New Part M additions for GridPro
Scolmore continues to invest in its wiring accessories collection to bring installers an ever broader range of solutions that are designed to help them carry out tasks more easily and speedily and to meet regulatory requirements where needed. The latest development sees the expansion of the GridPro range of interchangeable mounting plates and modules to include Part M frontplates.
The Part M GridPro Frontplates range offers a visually contrasting, flexible range of wiring accessories and will join Scolmore’s comprehensive Part M collection, which has been designed and developed as a high quality, flexible and modern solution to assisted living requirements. The new GridPro additions comprise 1-gang, 2-gang, 3-gang and 4-gang standard switch plates.
One of the key features of the GridPro design is the fact that there is no requirement for a yoke with the 1-4-gang frontplates – the modules are secured to the back of the GridPro frontplates via the screw feature on the modules. The benefit of not having to use a yoke is that it allows installers to use standard back boxes.
These new frontplates join the growing Part M range which also comprises 1-gang, 2-gang and 3-gang wide rockers. With ease of visibility in mind, these wide rockers are an ideal choice for assisted living installations and to aid with Part M compliance.
Completing the Part M line-up is the locating plug socket originally which is 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.
