Rated 5 out of 5 Best price for Good Quality Got this dimmer switch from Screwfix for my reception and dining rooms. The switch was of good quality. I compared similar switches from other trade points (cannot name them here). They were either too pricey or cheap quality. But the ones in Screwfix, just had the right price and good quality. Impressed with the switches. Will definitely recommend others to buy electrical stuff from screwfix. 8 Oct 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality Nice unit, feels good to the touch. There is a faint buzzing when brightness is around a half-way setting, but you wouldn't notice unless you were listening for it. Certainly less noisy than other models I have used. 20 Aug 2015

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.
