With the growing trend for investing in existing property – be that kitchen/diner extensions in the home or interior updates in hotels or holiday lets, renewing wiring accessories can be a quick win for those looking for a quality finish on a budget. We discover why the Hartland G2 range by Hamilton Litestat is every electrical installer’s answer to such scenarios.
A well-known British brand for quality switch plate and socket solutions in an array of designs and finishes, Hamilton has value engineered one of its most popular box-fit designs to create a screwless and versatile faceplate that satisfies interior style aspirations, while staying true to a more prudent budget.
A practical solution for the home, hotel or office
Produced from a pressed metal rather than cast, the Hartland G2’s push-to-fit-plate not only makes life easier for electrical contractors and offers an overall cost saving when compared to their cast plate counterparts, but it does so without compromising on quality or finish. Additionally, with the front plate easily removed, it is the ideal solution for high traffic areas requiring regular décor updates as the plate can simply be popped off to paint or paper and pushed back on once decoration is complete.
On-trend and Paintable
Slim and elegant with soft round edges, Hartland G2 offers a choice of 11 finishes – including NEW of-the-moment Anthra Gray and is available as a Paintable option too – so customers can colour match to their taste and make every flick of a switch feel totally unique.
Sockets and switches for every scenario
A comprehensive range of rocker switches, grid switches, LED dimmer switches and power sockets with 20AX switches – complete with printed word or symbol appliance identification on the switch, means that not only is there a switch for every requirement but it’s easy to identify too.
Full charge for a digital-centric generation
Meeting the demand for technology at our fingertips, the Hartland G2 also includes a double switched socket complete with two 2.4A USB-A outlets as standard, but the NEW combined double switched 2.4A USB-A & 2.4A USB-C plate is rapidly becoming the ‘must-have’ install for charging phones, tablets, smart watches and other electronic devices.
Complete control in one convenient location
For customers dreaming of a clean interior finish, the Hartland G2’s 6, 8 or 9 gang grid plates, available in eleven finishes including matt black, offer the perfect solution. The push-to-fit plates allow 20A double pole appliance switches, along with light switches and other controls to be operated from one plate and easily changed without fuss or damage to surrounding decor if switch functions need to be altered after fitting.
NEW Paintables option switches personalisation up a notch
While off-the-shelf options work for many, the desire for personalisation grows – whether within the home, the hotel or even the workplace setting. Hamilton’s Paintable colour-matching service allows customers to achieve just this. Using a durable, powder coating process, accessories can be painted in any colour to compliment an interior scheme. Simply select your RAL colour, place your order with your wholesaler and leave the rest to Hamilton.
A case in point: Hamilton Hartland G2 compliments Victorian grandeur in Hove
Kings House in Hove is a stunning Grade II listed building – meticulously refurbished into 69 luxurious apartments all with uninterrupted sea views.
Hamilton’s Hartland G2 range was selected by Portsmouth-based electrical contractor MR Electrical to use throughout the development. Chosen for its quality – to compliment the opulent Victorian architectural features – as well as for its simplicity of installation at a competitive price, it was the natural choice.
2-gang double pole switched sockets were used throughout in an Antique Brass finish with black inserts, complementing the property’s brass fixtures and fittings. In the higher specification apartments, dual switched sockets were upgraded to incorporate 2.4A USB-A Ultra charging outlets, while lighting is controlled throughout with a mixture of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-gang rocker switch plates. In the kitchens, installed within antique-styled mirrored splash backs are two double-switched sockets and a 2-gang 2-way grid plate that controls the integrated strip LED lighting.
In the residents’ lounge – a striking focal point of the development – private lounges and bedrooms, EuroFix media plates include a TV+FM/DAB+SAT1+SAT2 quadplexer and a RJ45CAT6 outlet for internet access.
