Making security an issue

MK Electric, the UK’s leading manufacturer of wiring devices and accessories, is putting security firmly on the agenda with the launch of a range of lockable switches and sockets. Its Masterseal, Metalclad Plus, Edge and Albany Plus products will now all be available with key-operated locks to prevent unauthorised tampering of the power supply.

The 20A double pole key operated switch and 13A double pole key operated socket feature printed terminal markings and universal lock. The key can be removed from the lock in both the ON or OFF position, so ensuring that power is either maintained or withheld according to need. The universal lock allows one key to operate a number of devices, simplifying the security process.


Both products have backed out, captive terminal screws and require one size of screwdriver to facilitate easy installation. The Metalclad Plus and Masterseal versions are supplied with a mounting box.


The new ranges are ideal for applications where control of supply is necessary such as office locations, public areas and schools and colleges.
