Exquisite switches from times gone by



These switches originated in the days of electrification of residential buildings at the beginning of the last century. But like so many things, they disappeared into oblivion over the years. But now they are back! The porcelain switches in the DIMBLER series with their soft round shape and delicate toggle levers have once again become a popular design element.

These switches with a porcelain body are made entirely of white or black porcelain. Porcelain has a crystal-clear aesthetic, a pleasant feel and particularly good insulating properties. All switches are available with toggle levers in various surface finishes.
And the switches are also available with a brass cover, as was very popular in England or France. Depending on the chosen Surface, the switches take on a very unique look.
Whether two-way switches, cross switches or Toggle Pushbuttons - all are available in numerous combinations.

For surface mounting with supply conduits, the switches can be placed on matching wooden base plates.
Flush mounting is also possible. Special wooden or porcelain base plates are provided for this purpose. You can also mount the attractive switches directly on the wall. However, special flush-mounted boxes should then be used.
