Introducing the MK MetalClad Plus Outdoor Switches and Sockets, MK Metal Clad

All the MK switches/sockets/connection units/etc – the MK wiring accessories – are made to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use, but in some areas you need them to be even tougher. That’s why the MK Metalclad Plus range of surface mounted accessories is ideal for the factories, the workshops, the garages and the sheds – where there’s a need of more solid wiring accessories that can resist to both the harsh outdoor weather and the industrial working environment. The MK Metal Clad Plus range are made from heavy gauge steel – they are tough and impact resistant, and they look good too!

There is a wide selection of surface mounted products in this range of MK MetalClad, including switch sockets with outboard rockers and light switches with wide rockers, both very useful when wearing gloves. An RCD protected socket is also available which is essential when operating power tools.
