Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use non-LED bulbs with with an LED dimmer?

Yes. Our LED dimmer also works with mains voltage incandescent and 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 a 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 switches and dimmers range cannot accommodate mixed switches on a plate. Get in touch with our sales team and ask to be kept in the loop about future availability.

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 from more than two locations.

Go you sell more than a 1G intermediate toggle switch?

Right now, our intermediate switch is only available as a 1G. Drop our sales team a line to be in the loop when other options become available in the future.

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

In the UK, 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 three or more switches in different locations.

Are your products suitable for use outside the UK?

The majority of our UK range is approved and certified and therefore suitable for use in Europe. Please check the technical specification for specific products, or enquire with our customer service team for a list of suitable regions. For dimmers, outlets and switches, we do also have a dedicated EU range. Contact our sales team for more information this collection.

Can your electricity products be used in a bathroom?

Our lights are IP20 rated, which means they are suitable for use in a bathroom but only in zone 2. Further technical information can be found in the full technical specification for each product. If you’re in any doubt, we advise enlisting the help of a fully certified electrician.

Will the brass and smoked bronze products age?

Our brass finish is coated with a hard-wearing lacquer to protect the product. The smoked bronze is a ‘living finish’, which ages beautifully over time with you and your home. (Please note, all finishes are prone to ageing.)

Where can I find technical information and installation guides?

Tech specs and instruction manuals are available to download from each product page.

Are any of your products suitable for use externally?

Unfortunately, none of our products are suitable for use externally.

How do I clean my B+P product?

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 toothbrush to remove anything trapped in the knurling. We strongly advise against using cleaning products and soaps on 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 Buster + Punch 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 metal, wash off with warm water and a soft cloth.
