I want to fit electrics ( lights and sockets ) to a woodworking shed. Is it ok to fit the single pole sockets or would I need to fit the double pole ones ?
A single pole switch operates a single circuit/'ho't wire, for example the live wire. A double pole switch operates two circuits/'hot' wires. An example would be that a double pole switch would operate both the 'live' and 'neutral' wire whereas a single pole switch would operate just the 'live' wire.
Thank you for using Q&A
