Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value and quality Great switch but utterly spoiled by the tiny 19mm screws which are too short for anything other than a new-build property with shallow wall boxes - in fact they are pretty useless in any setting to be quite honest. BG don't supply anything longer in antique brass and so I had to use regular brass 30mm screws instead which aren't a good colour match.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from fixing screws too short The wall was plastered after the switch box was in place. No problem with the normal chrome screw about 27mm long but the antique brass ones provided are just 20mm long and too short to reach the box.

Are the products in this British General Nexus Metal (Antique Brass) range really made from plastic?

If so, how well do they wear? Easily scratched for example?
Asked by: Grimmster
Hi Grimmster, The faceplate and switch rocker are a coated metal, but the rear mechanism is housed in a plastic enclosure to ensure necessary electrical insulation. The coating is designed to resist normal levels of usage and wear, but it is definitely possible to scratch or even over-clean the material and cause damage to the metal or the coating.

Are longer screws (of the same finish) available?

Asked by: Richyhorse
Hi Richyhorse, We don't get enough call for Antique Brass screws to be making additional length or separate screw packs unfortunately. Probably your next best option would be to use Screw Extenders to lengthen the supplied screws so that they reach your backbox.
