Electrical switches are devices used to interrupt the flow of electrons in a circuit. Any switch designed to be operated by a person is known as a hand switch and common types are a toggle, pushbutton, selector, joystick, proximity, speed or pressure switches.
The type of switch you need depends on the nature and function of your circuit. SPST (single pole single throw) switches are used to connect or disconnect a single terminal and are the simplest type of switch.Clipsal electrical switches
Clipsal is an Australian brand of electrical accessories. A standard home needs approximately 30-40 power outlets or powerpoints spread across all rooms including carports and outdoor spaces. Different areas of the house require different lighting and need to be powered differently, which is why there is a huge range of Clipsal switches to choose from.
USB wall chargers allow you to charge multiple devices simultaneously around the home. Perfect if you've got multiple kids and limited chargers!
Architrave switches are slim designs made specifically to fit the small spaces around doorways. Dimmers and fan controls allow you to take control of the light levels and temperature of your rooms. Timer switches help you to save on energy costs by setting heaters, fans or lights to turn off automatically when not required, and for switch mechanisms, you can choose from an extensive range of rockers, toggles or pushbutton.Outdoor electrical switches
Weatherproof switches come in handy for outdoor spaces. Clipsal weatherproof switches are designed from heavy-duty plastics and are designed to resist corrosion, colour fading and loss of impact. They're also available in different colour finishes to match your brickwork or rendering.
