Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed after 3 weeks Purchased to control 3 LED bulbs in a Lounge ceiling fitting. Worked fine for a few weeks then failed. See from one of the reviews it may not be reliable for dimmable LED's. Going to try the British General one, more expensive, but should be OK with LED's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and quality Having had problems with another manufacturers switch replaced it with this one from Screwfix. It is working well and the dimmer adjustment is perfect.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
All British General dimmer modules can be used in a 2 or more way switching circuit in conjunction with regular 2 way and intermediate rocker switches.
They are not designed for multiple dimmers to be in the same lighting circuit though.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
All British General dimmer switches manufactured since the beginning of 2015 have adjustable modules which can be `turned down' into a mode which makes them compatible with dimming 5-50W of Leading Edge dimmable LED lighting.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
It is normally advisable to install BG dimmers into 35mm deep boxes to allow clearance for wiring between the module and the rear of the box.
If wiring is routed very carefully it can be possible to fit a dimmer into a shallow box but you would run the risk of overheating and/or pinching wires behind the module.

Answer: 
Sorted this myself on the British General web site. It is trailing edge dimmer.

You should note that the picture is still of the previous model by Varilight with which I have had problems. I note one of the reviewers had problems with that model and said this one is better.
