Evolving choice in decorative wiring accessories

Homeowners and commercial property owners are now demanding decorative wiring accessories with modern colours, finishes and technology, to complement their living and workspaces.

David Cleaver, Product Director at BG Electrical outlines how Evolve, BG’s new range of decorative wiring accessories will help the contractor keep up with these latest trends and end user demands.

Designed with a slim and screwless profile, Evolve complements any modern interior with a sleek, stylish and minimalist appearance. The range is available with a mix of traditional and contemporary stocked finishes including pearlescent white, brushed steel, matt black, matt grey, dark blue, black chrome, satin brass and copper.

Evolve’s polycarbonate front plates are easily removeable and changeable, which gives the flexibility to create on-trend finishes not usually seen in decorative accessories. For larger projects with a minimum order quantity, a wide range of extended finishes are also available, with the ability to custom match almost any colour.

The Evolve range offers a complete portfolio of decorative wiring accessories, suitable for all domestic or commercial applications. The range includes all of the latest innovation and technology solutions BG wiring devices are well known for, including 30W Type C USB fast charging. BG’s superior USB solution is the only true fast charging wall socket with integrated fast charge ports, for both USB-C and USB-A. This innovation delivers a 50% charge in just 30 minutes for mobile devices and 60 minutes for tablets, 70% faster than standard 5W charging – charge anxiety is now a thing of the past.

With the move towards home and mobile working, Wi-Fi extenders are also available, allowing Wi-Fi signal to be extended throughout the home and commercial premises. They also extend coverage to outdoor living spaces, without the need for bulky plug-in boosters.

To support the latest LED technology, new touch and push dimmers are also now available and include trailing edge technology. This offers better support for LED lighting, eliminating annoying noise and flicker. Further innovations include soft start and a protective overload function, to extend the life of users LED lamps. Wide rocker switches are also available, which have a large touch point for ease of operation.

Although Evolve is new on the outside, the same trusted and reliable technology found in the Nexus Metal range is employed internally, so contractors can expect the same level of quality and reliability they have been used to.

Designed with the contractor in mind, Evolve includes key features to ensure installation and retro-fitting are as quick and easy as possible, including colour coded, in line terminals and captive screws. In addition, the base of the unit can be installed first, making it ideal for contractors who wish to carry out the preliminary wiring, then apply the covers after decorating.

Evolve offers both the contractor and their customers extensive choice around colours, finishes, modern design and technology, to complement any interior. This evolution in BG’s wiring accessories offer goes a long way to help the contractor meet the more modern and aspirational needs of their customers.
