Generally, when people think of decoration and functionality, they think of lighting, flooring, ceilings, furniture, decorative items, etc.  But the less intriguing details such as electrical fittings, wiring systems, and switches are often left out. However, an designer’s job is to have an eye for the detail. Also, items like modular switches by brands like Anchor, Havells, Goldmedal, GM, etc. have a great impact on the operation, resourcefulness, and look of the space. Also, the price of the modular switches and the switchboards are generally quite economical.

Speaking of electrical switches, they have been in use for a very long time. However, they were never designed to look beautiful. Also, the traditional switches or the piano switches only solved the functional purpose of breaking or making the electric circuit. Gradually, there was a shift towards more designer and stylish switches. This is how they came in trend.

 

What are modular switches?

They compromise modules or smaller independent slots for plug insertion, keys, and special fittings. Also, they are stylish and youth-oriented electrical products that can be installed vertically or horizontally.

Moreover, they give you the freedom of customization. As a result, you can increase or decrease the number of keys, regulators, and sockets in a modular switchboard. Therefore, you can replace the sockets with switches or vice versa. In addition to that, you can also replace or reposition the regulator slots with sockets or keys.

Also, they have hidden screws, shuttered sockets, an anti-weld design, amazing flexibility, and shock-proof properties.

 

Why are modular switches better than piano switches?

These are made of independent units and slots. Also, unlike the piano switches, they give you the freedom to use the slots like a socket or a switch. For instance, if you don’t want a socket in the switchboard you can modify it by putting two switches in the place of one socket.

In addition to that, the modular switchboard does not have any exposed screws. Also, the modular switchboard also doesn’t use the Bakelite material that turns pale and yellow over time. On the contrary, the modular switchboard comes in beautiful designs, colour schemes, and materials.

Furthermore, the modular switch box uses a more seamless look. As a result, the modular switchboard remains minimalistic.

The traditional switches were ‘rigid’ in their applications. As a result, they would fit into a fixed position. Modular switches, on the other hand, are more of a ‘plug & play’. Also, the positions of the keys can be changed on the modular switchboard in a combination of switch and socket (a socket is double the size of a switch on the modular plate).

Additionally, the modular switch plate covers the screws and other fittings to make the modular switch box look compact.

 

What are the advantages of installing modular switches?

 

Multifunctionality

One of the major benefits of these types of switches is their multifunctionality.
