Rocker Light Switches are an integral part of any household and there are currently billions in operation globally. It is hard to imagine how this all began in Newcastle, in 1884, when John Henry Holmes developed the first light switch. It was an innovative design at the time as it introduced the new 'quick break' technology which allowed the electricity to the bulb to be ceased and supplied almost instantly.

Unlike previous switches, this was both safer and more convenient for the domestic dwelling and became instantly popular. From this a plethora of electrical switches came into production, but the Rocker Light Switch has maintained its place as the firm favourite throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
