Here’s part three of our January round-up of products, including energy efficient lighting, LED emergency fittings, safety locks and more, brought to you by some of your favourite brands.
Lewden – Caravan Hook-Up Units
In compliance with the latest wiring regulations, Lewden’s range of caravan hook up units has been upgraded to feature switched interlocked sockets that offer additional safety by preventing the socket contacts from being live when accessible.
Lewden’s modular topTER series of distribution boards is the ideal solution to meet this requirement, allowing the possibility to incorporate up to four 16A or 32A switched interlocked sockets within a single unit.
The flexible and robust enclosure design of the hook up units allows either 16A or 32A switched interlocked sockets to be interchanged on the same fixing flange and wire harness, making it easy to upgrade additional sockets quickly at a later stage.
The interlocking arrangement is achieved mechanically via the socket outlet and an integral AC3-AC23A category isolator switch. The isolator switch cannot be selected to the ‘ON’ position unless a plug has first been inserted.
It is then not possible to withdraw the plug from the outlet unless the isolator has first been selected to ‘OFF’, ensuring safe use of electricity in caravan/camping parks and similar locations. For maximum safety, these units have an overall 100A 2P main switch protection and use the latest 16A and 32A 2P 30mA Type B 6kA RCBOs compliant to EN 61009.
Allowing safe electrical operation inside a caravan or motor home, these caravan hook up units offer many benefits including metered versions with MID certified 45A KWH meters for each socket to ensure accuracy for consumer billing purposes.
Niglon – Safety Lock Out Range
Niglon has reiterated its commitment to electrical safety with a new safety lock out range aimed at protecting both contractors and end users from unsafe exposure to electrical current.
The range has been designed to protect against electrical shocks by preventing circuits from being connected when they need to be out of use during an electrical installation, for maintenance purposes or for safe isolation in an operational environment.
The comprehensive selection includes a variety of lock out devices for varied applications – including safety padlocks, lock out hasps, MCB lock out devices, industrial plug lock outs, no hole lock out devices and grip tight lock out devices – ensuring contractors, maintenance teams and operators can find the right accessory to meet their needs in any installation or industrial environment.
The lock out kit has been designed to offer a handy starter pack that ensures contractors, maintenance teams and safety personnel always have the right device and labelling equipment to hand. All products in the range are robust, simple to use and re-useable, and supplied in red to offer good visibility and a warning indication.

Supplied with either a frosted or clear lens, the range is available in three different bezel colours: white, polished chrome and satin chrome.
