As architectural designers we enjoy thoughtful design even in the smallest and most prosaic details. We are often required to create innovative and bespoke solutions for our clients, who share this passion. FMP1 & FMP2 are two such solutions that have been designed and manufactured by EDRM. Many more to follow we hope.
FMP1 and FMP2 offer an alternative to the ubiquitous plastic ceiling rose used for pendant light fittings.
The Touch Switch can be used to provide the most visually minimal switching solution but is also highly practical for use in bathrooms and other areas where conventional switches cannot be used.
FPM1 utilises a standard MK ceiling rose base and provides the means for this to be recessed into the ceiling, the wiring accessed via a removable flush fitting metal cover plate.
FPM2 forms a small outlet in the ceiling through which the pendant light flex passes. The pendant flex runs through standard 20mm diameter conduit in the ceiling void and connects to a junction box located remotely. The junction box can be located almost anywhere but must be accessible so that the electrical connections can be checked and for the future replacement of the flex if necessary.
A switch that can be concealed behind any number of materials and is safe to use in bathrooms as an alternative to a ceiling pull cord or having to position the switch outside of the room. Switch or dim bathroom lighting by simply touching a tile.
The switch comprises of a sensor pad and a small controller. The controller housing can be hidden in the ceiling cavity either behind the light rose or adjacent to a junction box and this connects to one or more sensor pads. The switch is available as a switch, dimmer and timed dimmer and the sensor pad can be concealed behind almost any material including tiles, mirrors, metal and wood.
The sensor pads operate on only 5 volts DC and can utilise existing cabling. Because the cabling in the wall is carrying this low voltage, they can be used safely in bathrooms and kitchens, including within Zone 1.
The sensor pads are no bigger than a postage stamp so the switching sites can be very un-obtrusive if required. Up to 6 sensor pads can be used to operate each controller. The touch switch can be used to switch most types of load including extract fans, electronic transformers and fluorescent lighting.
