We want to replace white plastic plates for switches and sockets, with metal, possibly matt steel ones. Where to go? Dont want to buy online as we want to see then first. So many are tacky up close...
PS OH hoping to buy from DIY chain, any help out there?
These from B&Q?
Sorry, just noticed you want matt steel.B&Q have those as well Here
Sds in SW11 are great. Website as well.
Thank you, B and Q it is.SDS does look good, so if no luck I will try them. Thanks so much both.
Check before you buy as some metal ones inner boxes are apparently deeper than the white ones to fit all the gubbins in <technical term>. Some are more slimline than others - which may prevent a straight like for like swap iyswim
Buy a good quality UK brand like MK, Crabtree or MEM.There is no shortage of cheap rubbish around.Count how many you need and look at bulk prices from TLC and Screwfix, then ask your local electrical factor who will be in a small industrial estate.
We bought crabtree brushed steel plates from screwfix. Not a simple swap though due to different styles
Good point Fishfingers. We had much sighing and tutting from our electrician when he fitted ours (nickel ones). They're the B&Q variety and good quality.
