About the Heritage Brass Primed White (Paintable) range

  • In addition to the elegant metal finishes offered within the Heritage electrical collection, a range of plates finished in a high quality white primer is now also available.
  • They are designed to enable total colour coordination of decor schemes; the front plate of this primed plate can be painted / coloured to meet the specific requirements of users, architects, and interior designers.
  • The primed white range is supplied in "grid format" so that the front plates can be painted separately and then fixed to the electrical component.
  • The ultra-flat profile of these primed plates is enhanced by the use of neatly recessed flat head fixing screws secured by the use of a supplied Allen Key.
  • After painting these screws, when inserted, fit flush with the front plate, blending nicely with it.
  • As an added advantage the Allen Key screw provides resistance to tampering for those more vulnerable installations such as public buildings and schools. 
  • Painting: the manufacturer recommends that the primed plates are spray-painted for a smoother finish; however, paint can also be applied with a brush or a roller. Any good-quality paint can be applied to the primed surface to create a unique finish.

How Do We Teach Young Children to Save Energy and be Eco-Conscious?

Young children can be the blight of the domestic eco-warrior. They forget to turn off the lights when they leave a room. Facts and figures mean very little to them. Not to mention all the electronic toys! A concept design by designer Danny Taylor got us thinking about how we might teach children how to be energy-conscious in a fun way. Rationing Energy with Happy Faces The concept is a rotary dimmer switch with a smiley face on it; when the lights are on, the smiley face is actually a sad face. It's a nice way to reinforce the idea that having the lights on makes something happy, although many professionals dislike the idea of negative reinforcement. As Gizmodo suggests, you could copy this idea at home with a paintable dimmer switch (like this switch from Heritage Brass) and a marker pen. We don't condone intellectual property theft as a general rule, but as this switch is still in the concept stage, it's certainly one solution. Rationing Energy with Other ThingsBut how else could we get the concept of energy management across to children without overloading them with data? There are plenty of resources for classroom teachers, and some guidelines from the Guardian. But what if you're an eco-conscious parent? Well, we have a whole range of domestic energy management devices in our online store, such as occupancy sensors and thermostats for lighting, heating and ventilation. One creative method suggested to us was to connect the shower heater to a time delay switch so that the hot water is only available for a set period of time.Time Delay Switches at Sparks This has the unfortunate side-effect that someone may be using the shower when all of a sudden it turns freezing! We haven't actually tried to do this, but we are certain that our parents certainly would have done this to us if the technology had been available at the time. We were going to suggest simply "leading by example," but that's what was suggested to us.Do you have any more ideas about how to teach kids to be energy-conscious? Let us know in the comments!
