    Leading manufacturer of stylish electrical accessories, MK Electric, has announced that its latest range of wiring devices, Dimensions, has been shortlisted for Commercial Product of the Year at the Electrical Industry Awards.

    Designed to recognise the very best of product innovation in the electrical sector, the Electrical Industry Awards offer a valuable barometer of the latest and greatest products entering the market, providing hoteliers and hotel specifiers with a guide to the best new ranges available.

    The Commercial Product of the Year category recognises the electrical accessories which offer outstanding functionality to commercial sectors such as hospitality. Dimensions, which launched this summer, was designed to respond to the needs of audiences such as hotel developers, and includes a two-piece installation process which means that the clip-on frontplates can be easily interchanged to match the evolving décor of a building.

    Offering screwless design and a choice of eight different finishes, the range provides scalability which can add the finishing touch to any room – whether that’s a deluxe suite or back-of-house office areas. In line with customer demand, Dimensions also incorporates products such as integrated USB socket outlets for easy smart device charging, LED dimmers, keycard switches and ‘do not disturb’ switches, all with a unified look.

    Emma Segelov, head of marketing at MK Electric, said: “We are delighted that Dimensions has been shortlisted for Commercial Product of the Year. We developed the range to meet the needs of a fast-paced commercial hospitality environment, and this award is testament to the success of that – we look forward to the results!”

    The winning products will be announced at an awards ceremony on the 26 October at The Royal Garden Hotel, London.

    Hamilton at Decorex

    Product Spotlight: Hamilton’s ‘primed-to-paint’ range to be debuted at Decorex

    535 350 Daniel Fountain

    Following a successful show last year, Hamilton is again returning to interior design exhibition Decorex on 17-20 September 2017, held at Syon Park, London. At the event, Hamilton will launch their popular Hartland CFX® and Sheer CFX® ranges in a new primed finish that can be painted to match any interior colour or theme, making customisation even more accessible.

    The new primed finish plates will be displayed on Stand H37a at the show, which is a key event for interior designers. As well as the sleek and modern Hartland CFX® and Sheer CFX® ranges, the primed finish option is also available on any bespoke plates so they can be painted to match a wall colour, wallpaper or soft furnishings. The primed plates come with a choice of insert finishes, from Bright Chrome to Antique Brass, and with either black or white inset surrounds.

    Decorex takes place ahead of Hamilton’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018. During the past five decades, the family-run British business has become renowned for supplying high quality decorative electrical wiring accessories, lighting control and multi-room audio systems that are manufactured and finished to an exceptional standard. They will have a plethora of product on show that have been designed to create the right look and ambience in any space, while meeting the exacting project demands of architects, interior designers and tech-savvy homeowners.

    Amongst the solutions on show will be their increasingly popular range of USB switched sockets. Available in Hartland, Hartland CFX®, Sheer and Sheer CFX® designs, these USB sockets ensure the latest smart devices can be easily charged through a USB port, fulfilling the need to be connected 24/7. Unlike some of Hamilton’s competitors, its dual USB switched sockets have a 1A rated USB port for charging mobile phones and a second 2.1A USB port for tablets and other devices, meaning double the charging capacity simultaneously.


    Create a colour wash with light

    Hamilton will also showcase its Smart Lighting Control, including its RGB DMX control option. This allows a colour wash to be applied to an area using LED lighting, helping to add drama, create a certain ambience or to ‘zone’ specific areas of a larger space. Typically popular in the bars, hotels and restaurants, this on-trend lighting solution is becoming more desirable domestically and is adding flair to homes and hotels.

    Free designers’ swatch
    Don’t forget to pick up your free designers’ swatches on Stand H37a, a great reference tool illustrating available plate finishes. Divided into two tone boxes, the ‘Warm’ collection includes Polished Brass, Richmond Bronze and Connaught finishes, amongst others, while the ‘Cool’ collection includes Bright Stainless, Black Nickel and Satin Chrome. The finishes can be applied to Hamilton’s enormous collection of switch and socket plate designs.

    Design your own
    However, if you can’t find exactly the right solution for you, the Hamilton team will be on-hand to discuss their bespoke design and finishing service. The team can create an electrical wiring accessory that’s as unique as your design theme or has the exact functionality that you need. This is particularly helpful for those working on hotel projects where bespoke multi-function plates are needed.

    MK Electric's new Dimensions range has been launched

    Guest Blog: MK Electric – new dimensions for hospitality design

    750 484 Guest Blog

    MK Electric share the benefits of their new range of design-led wiring accessories called Dimensions, perfect for hoteliers looking for modernity with design flexibility…

    A growing number of hotels are shedding traditional designs in favour of something a little more modern, as rapidly changing interior trends require agile products which can evolve along with the building as a whole.

    A key part of this is design flexibility, and ranges which can offer scalability and ease of replacement are becoming increasingly popular amongst hoteliers. These not only allow regular refreshes to a space without a significant financial or time investment, but allow common design throughout a building with scalable options from back of house office areas to suite rooms.

    In order to meet this demand, MK Electric has launched a new range of screwless wiring devices, Dimensions, a design-led solution which is easily upgradeable and available in eight different finishes for a contemporary finish to any room.

    Designed as a two-piece product solution, Dimensions is available as two individual parts, a functional module and clip-on frontplate, which can be ordered separately. This two-part installation offers a high level of adaptability, allowing frontplates to be changed as the design inside the building evolves over time.

    And, as end users are expecting more from their hotels, the range incorporates products such as integrated USB socket outlets for easy smart device charging, LED dimmers, keycard switches and ‘do not disturb’ switches, all with a unified look.

    Emma Segelov, head of marketing at MK Electric, said: “We understand that in today’s design-led environment, hoteliers need wiring devices which not only blend with their current décor but can be quickly and easily changed to match a revamp.

    “The new MK Electric Dimensions range offers a design which not only has the scalability to fit into every area of a hotel, but which can also be interchanged and upgraded with ease to match any future changes in colour scheme, without blowing the budget or time-intensive work.”

    Dimensions provides peace of mind for contractor, customer and end user, and comes complete with a 20-year guarantee (exclusions apply).
