With the release of not one, but two, comprehensive ranges of electrical accessories Chint (Europe) UK Ltd takes another step to increase market penetration in the UK. The Studio and Regal ranges, launched under the Shield brand, both offer class-leading modern design, proven build quality and practicality – all underwritten by independent certification and a solid guarantee.
Studio accessories are moulded in durable, colour stable and impact resistant white plastic with rounded corners and a low profile to suit modern interiors. Regal accessories have a high-class appearance with a brushed stainless steel finish so as to blend with any installation. Both ranges offer hidden fixings with multiple options for modern lifestyles.
Designed specifically for domestic and light commercial use, the ranges include switches, sockets, cooker units, pull switches, lamp holders, pendants and many other accessories. Switch configurations include rocker or dimmer actuation, with special switch units for bell operation and isolation. In addition to single and double 13 Amp power sockets, options include sockets with integrated USB charging points for mobile phones and tablets as well as dedicated connectors for shavers, TV, phone and data connections. Two gang sockets are complete with two Earth terminals.
“Great looks are only half the story,” explained marketing director Graham Chadwick. “The ranges are engineered to be quick to install with easily accessible fittings for wiring. This feature also provides excellent access to allow the security of the connections to be easily checked.”
Durable mechanisms and materials will ensure years of trouble free service. The urea formaldehyde material used in the Studio range, for example, has excellent mechanical and electrical properties providing a long lasting hard, smooth and attractive surface. Reflecting the confidence in the build quality and endurance of this equipment a 25 year conditional warranty is offered. Underpinning this, third party testing and certification from Intertek, the leading test house, confirms compliance to relevant BS/EN standards.
Point of sale display boards are available for distributors to demonstrate the range to best advantage. “We are confident that these accessories represent the best of modern design, build quality and value and will win a large market share,” Graham noted.
Shield products are distributed nationally via YESSS Group, Electricbase, Edmundson Electrical, Lockwood and other independent electrical wholesalers.
