Innovative new socket provides assisted living solution
At the forefront of all major developments in the wiring accessories sector, Scolmore Group announces the launch of an innovative new socket that is targeted at the growing assisted living sector.
The new Mode Locating Plug Socket has been designed to assist people with impaired vision or poor hand to eye coordination to more easily insert a plug into a socket. The contoured shape of the front plate guides the earth pin into position, and it is this plug guide which gives the product a greater focus on usability and means its use can be extended to situations where a socket isn’t easily accessible.
The product is available in one and two-gang options, with the two-gang version featuring outboard rockers to further assist with distinguishing between switches, making it less likely to switch the wrong one.
An addition to the company’s Mode range of wiring accessories, the Locating Plug Socket has all the benefits that are standard within this range, including anti-microbial properties and a 20 year guarantee. It is an ideal solution for assisted living installations and to aid with Part M compliance.
