Hi,

A customer wants to buy LAP accessories in polished chrome from screwfix. Unfortunately for him I've done the first fix on his new kitchen extension assuming we'd use 1-Gang 45 amp switches for the hob and oven. They dno't seem to appear in the LAP range, only vertical 2-gang sized ones.

Is LAP screwfix only? Is there another near identical range? They will be close to other accessoroes so need to look pretty similar.

Thanks

John

What is the rating of the oven/cooker? How about using a 20dp switch if it's a small oven fused appropriately at the board?

Don't think i can get away with that. It's a double upright oven not a single 2.7kW job. Oven and cooker switches are next to each other.

Good idea though!

Will the guts out of the 45A plate fit in the single 1G switch plate or are they riveted together?

Quite agree Pete - I was asked to fit some recently. They even felt nasty in the hand and the switch rockers were nasty rough and felt like they were full of sand. I thought the old Volex ones were bad enough.

The Schneider ultimate is a close match, we had a job recently where the client bought all lap screw less, but didn't realise they didn't do intermediate switches and grid etc. I made a list, let him buy his cheep rubbish, and made up the rest with Schneider.
