Intermediate Switches are also known as 3 way Switches. Intermediate Switches are typically used on a circuit that requires you to switch a lighting point from more than 2 positions ie On the Stairs and landings in a 3 story house where you would have a switch on the ground floor then also switches on the 2 upper floors that all control the same lighting point.
You would then require 2 x 2 way switches and 1 x intermediate switch to control this circuit.
Intermediate switches are generally only available as a single switch (One Gang) however we also sell multiple combinations of Intermediates and 2 way switches that you can find on our shopping menu where available.
Our light switches have a load rating of either 10amp or 20amp and the 4 terminals found on the back of the intermediate switch will accept up to
3 x 1.5mm Twin & Earth Cables.
We recommend 16mm deep wall boxes for mounting our switches or 25mm deep wall boxes for shallow or flat plate Switches.
