Switch Socket Installation Precautions


The switch socket is safe for daily use, and the installation and construction can not be sloppy. The following is a brief introduction from GELAN to introduce the precautions that need to be paid attention to when installing the switch socket.


First, the switch socket height has a standard


Switches and sockets should be set to a standard height unless they are required for special decoration. The height of the switch is the same as that of an adult's shoulder and is 120 cm to 140 cm above the ground.


Sockets vary in height depending on the application.


The height requirements of the sockets for different installations are different. The layout of the decoration should be planned as much as possible. For example, the sockets of equipment such as audio-visual equipment desk lamps and wiring boards should be 30cm away from the ground; electrical outlets such as washing machines and refrigerators should be 120cm away from the ground; air-conditioning and exhaust sockets should be 200cm away from the ground.


Second, the choice of switch installation location


The position of the switch should be determined according to the family's living habits. For example, most people use the right hand, so the general home decoration door is opened to the right, and the switch is installed on the left side of the door. In addition, for the upper and lower floors of the stairs, the bedroom door and the bed are two, on the two sides of the larger living room, it is very convenient to use the dual control switch.


Third, the socket installation location considerations


Install the socket in the kitchen, pay attention to the socket must be away from the cooktop to prevent heat from damaging the socket; and in the near water of the bathroom, balcony, etc., pay attention to the installation of the socket can not be low, and should be equipped with a splash-proof cover; in particularly humid, flammable, Locations that are prone to gas and dust should not be fitted with any outlets.


Fourth, high-power appliances should use independent socket


High-power appliances such as air conditioners, washing machines, range hoods, etc., preferably use a separate three-plug socket to prevent excessive tripping of the total power of the circuit. For seasonal appliances such as air conditioners, a socket with a switch can be used. When not in use, the switch can be closed without removing the plug.


The above points are often encountered in the installation of switch sockets. In order to facilitate the use of switch sockets and safe power in the future, we must urge the decoration staff.
