Frequently Asked Questions

can I use non-led bulbs with and led dimmer?

yes. our led dimmer also works with mains voltage incandescent + halogen lamps.

do other aftermarket bulbs work with b+p dimmer switches?

it’s best to check the technical specification of your chosen dimmer for a list of compatible loads. we try to offer broad compatibility, but cannot always guarantee optimum performance with every bulb on the market.

can i have a dimmer and a toggle on the same plate?

our current uk electricity range cannot accommodate mixed switches on a plate. get in touch with our sales team and ask to be kept in the loop as to when this might become available.

can i install two dimmer switches on the same circuit?

sadly not. the mechanics of a dimmer switch mean that only one can be used per circuit. you can add regular two-way or intermediate switches to the same circuit – to switch on and off from other locations.

when should i install an intermediate switch?

an intermediate switch is used when the same lighting circuit is going to be controlled by more than two locations.

do you sell more than a 1g intermediate toggle switch?

right now, our intermediate switch is available as 1g only. drop a line to our sales team who can keep you in the loop when other options become available in the future.

what is the difference between 1-way, 2-way and 3-way switching?

a 1-way switch can control a single lighting circuit from one location. (you can also use a 2-way switch for 1-way applications.)
a 2-way switch can control a lighting circuit, but also allows additional switches to control the same circuit from multiple locations.
a 3-way (or intermediate switch) must be used to bridge between 2-way switches on circuits controlled from 3 or more switches in different locations.

are your products suitable for use outside the australia and new zealand?

the majority of our anz range is certified by saa and therefore suitable for use in australia and new zealand. please check the technical specification for specific products or enquire with our customer service as to a specific requirement.

how do i clean my b+p product?

brass is a real buster + punch favourite. the warm glow, elegance and lustre has found its way into countless homes and interiors. compared to our steel finish it’s a little different when it comes to taking care of it, as the lacquer can change in appearance over time. with that in mind, here’s a few tips on how to keep your brass lustrous and looking great.

regular cleaning is recommended and easy to do. use a damp microfibre cloth to gently clean your product.

if you experience a stubborn stain, grab a soft-bristled tooth brush to remove anything trapped in the knurling.

we strongly advise against using cleaning products and soaps on our brass products as they may be harmful to the lacquer and overall appearance.
scrubbers and brushes with metal bristles should also be avoided.

when cleaning something close to your brass product, a door or drawer front for example, take care to avoid cross contamination if you’re using a cleaning product or soap. if you get any onto the brass, wash off with warm water and a soft cloth.
