Light Switches

Light Switches

A light switch is most commonly used to operate electric lights, it is a permanent fixture usually found wall - mounted at face level. A light switch provides an electrical outlet to an appliance or socket that it is either connected to or built in, which allows you to turn a light on or off or in some cases a dimmer to turn to achieve a desired light.

Our generous range of light switches are available in a variety of types, finishes and ratings. Our switches are brought to you from leading brands such as Bosch, Siemens, Schneider Electrics and of course our trusted own brand RS Pro.

A light switch is considered a must in most rooms, it's a fundamental part of lighting a space alongside a design feature that users like to match to the decor of a room or to create a certain ambiance.

I'm looking for a simple switch for my home? You're possibly looking for the most common of switches, which most electricians refer to as a single-pole light switch. This is a switch where when the user flips the lever up, the electrical circuit is complete and the light switches on and when the lever is flipped down the circuit is broken and the light turns off.
I need more than one switch? We supply gang 2 way light switches that hold more than one terminal, allowing you to control more than one light at a time. These types of light switches are usually found at the top and bottom or a hall way of a flight of stairs. A gang of switches can range between 1-6+.
How do I create ambiance in my room? We have a wide range of control switches, some feature a full range dimmer that can be adjusted to your desired setting.
I want my light switch to match my decor? RS Components offer a range of materials such as plastic and stainless steel. Colour shades such as satin chrome, graphite and pure white and finishes such as gloss, matte and brushed. This means that our customers can match their style of switch to the room they are placing it. We also offer a few different plate fixings which are clip-in, screws or screwless.

We also offer light switches that are illuminated, neon or LED, these are a great solution for when you are looking to see where the switch is when the switch is off of dimmed down low. You’ll find in our range that we also have water proof options supplied with earth and loop terminals, which are commonly used for outdoors or in garages and warehouses.
