Centre Off Retractive Switches
Established and proven in the market our double throw centre off retractive toggle grid switch was launched as an industry first in 2017, complementing our existing retractive rocker and push button (bell push) dimmer switches.
All our single throw retractive (momentary action) toggle, rocker and push button switches have both normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts.
Our centre off retractive toggle and rocker switches will operate with inline dimmers by some other manufacturers. Providing a safe, desirable solution for lighting control and dimming systems where the quiescent (off) position is in the centre, our switches can be finished to visually match all Focus SB’s standard and bespoke switch plates.
There are similar retractive toggle switches on the market, however these may differ in that they only offer single throw spring back retractive functionality. Some other retractive toggle or rocker dimmer switches on the market are only suitable for use with extra low voltage supplies (ELV) and are unsuitable for use with mains supply, carrying a low risk of electrical shock, whereas this innovative product from Focus SB is insulated, offering a safer, more robust option to mechanical and electrical engineers and architects.
- Certified to BS EN 60669-1
- Suitable for both mains voltage and ELV (most others on the market are only suitable for ELV)
- Double throw centre off Contemporary Toggle grid switch available as standard in True Edge plate style
As well as lighting our retractive switches are suitable for use with:
- Electronic curtains
- Shutter and window operating systems
Pushing the retractive toggle / rocker switch down opens curtains or lowers blinds, or pushing the switch in the opposite direction (up) closes the curtains or raises blinds. Retractive toggle, rocker and push button switches operate by sending a signal to the blind control / smart home automation controls behind the switch plate.
