The BAKELITE Collection

The ‘Bakelite Collection’has been designed to sympathetically recapture the nostalgic feel of the 1920’s and 30’s.

Our switches are moulded in the original Bakelite material and therefore have the feel, look and durability of those original switches whilst conforming to BS EN 60669-1. Offered as a standard 1 or 2 way switch, as well as a push to make link switch, which with the use of our dimming pack gives you the ability to dim your LED, halogen or incandescent lights or daisy chain a number of switches together, as you would should you have an intermediate switch to replace.

Hardwood bases are supplied in 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 gang versions with the 2 and 3 gang being available with a vertical or horizontal mounting option. We are also able to manufacture bespoke plate configurations and finishes should you require them.

The hand finished bases of Unfinished Oak, Light Oak, Medium Oak, Dark Oak , Unfinished and Finished Ash providing you with endless design possibilities.

Matching switches and sockets can be used from our Classic range can be used to complete your project.

Switch to Wood supply an adaptor plate with all of the switches in the Bakelite range for mounting to flush wall boxes.
