    Product Specifications

    • Brass or steel
    • Rotary dimmers can control up to 120W of LED bulbs or 300W of incandescent. If you are dimming any larger wattages or dimming any lights that have iLEDs, or have transformers or drivers, we recommend emailing spec sheets on them to us to review for compatibility.
    • A dimmer can only be used at one end of a 3-way circuit, with a toggle switch at the other end of the circuit. A 3-way circuit is where you can control the same light from two locations, as opposed to a single pole circuit which is where you can only control the light from one location.
    • Before ordering, it is important to make sure your junction boxes are recessed below the finished wall surface by at least 1/8”

    Care Instructions

    • Nickel silver plates can normally be cleaned easily by using a soft, dry, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. If, over time, nickel plates build up marks that do not wipe off easily, a Wadding Polish can be used to restore shine. Great care must be taken to avoid the residue from the polish coming into contact with the walls. We strongly advise removing the plates before cleaning them to avoid this and making sure all the residue has been polished off the plates before reinstating them.
    • Stainless steel plates can be cleaned by using a soft non-abrasive cloth with some stainless steel spray cleaner. Avoid getting the stainless steel spray cleaner on the walls as it will leave a dirty residue. We strongly advise removing the plates before cleaning them to avoid this and making sure all the residue has been polished off the plates before reinstating them.
    • Unlacquered brass plates are designed to mellow and tarnish with age. If a high-shine look is desired, they can be polished using a Brass Wadding Polish. Great care must be taken to avoid the residue from the polish coming into contact with the walls. We strongly advise removing the plates before cleaning them to avoid this and making sure all the residue has been polished off the plates before reinstating them.
    • Aged Unlacquered Brass plates have a patina already added to them when they are supplied. They are unlacquered and are designed to mellow and tarnish further with age. If you prefer the plates to look a little cleaner and brighter, they can be polished using a Brass Wadding Polish. Rub the plates softly initially to determine how much you want to clean the plates as you will risk removing some of the patina that was on the plates when they were supplied. Great care must be taken to prevent the residue from the polish coming into contact with the walls. We strongly advise removing the plates before cleaning them to avoid this and making sure all the residue has been polished off the plates before reinstating them
    • The Antique Bronze range requires little cleaning but, if required, you can use a little WD40 on a soft non-abrasive cloth to clean dirty marks off them and bring the sheen of the finish back. Great care must be taken to avoid the oily residue from the WD40 coming into contact with the walls. We strongly advise removing the plates before cleaning them to avoid this and making sure all the residue has been polished off the plates before reinstating them.
