The Nickel Silver range has a highly polished nickel plated plate, creating a mirror finish. Nickel Silver first became popular in the 19th Century due to its similarity to Sterling Silver and was commonly used for various decorative items around the home. It has a luxurious appearance which is much warmer and less clinical than chrome, making it more appealing for living areas.
The Nickel Silver range sits well in both traditional and contemporary interiors.
Note: this dimmer is not suitable for use with trailing edge transformers.
