The COLONIAL system's rotary switches combine traditional design with modern functionality. The porcelain Switch System is manufactured in Spain by the traditional manufacturer FONTINI according to today's technical specifications.

The softly moulded base plate of the retro switches, on which the rotary knob is placed, is made of white or black porcelain. Porcelain has always been a favourite material in electrical engineering: porcelain has a crystal-clear appearance, a pleasant feel and particularly good insulating properties.

You can't get much more of a combination than this. The COLONIAL switch series is characterised by its impressive variety. Enclosures, base plates and switch toggles can be combined with each other in a wide range of variants. The porcelain Switch System on striking wooden or porcelain base plates for flush mounting can therefore be adapted to almost any installation situation. Dark wood? Light-coloured wood? Porcelain in black or white? Or with decor or craquelure?

With our Porcelain - Rotary switches, you are not only relying on reliable technology, but also on a decorative element that enriches your living spaces with classic flair.

Wiping with a damp cloth is usually sufficient for maintenance. Thanks to the smooth porcelain surface, the switch is easy to clean and will retain its attractive appearance for years to come.
