The problem with so many homes and offices is that the electrically controlled goods market has resolved in a range of electrical goods being used, which are extremely numerous, and ever increasing. The average media installation can look like an advert for the women's knitting magazine with electrical cables going in all directions. Invariably there is a single or double socket to which is attached a three or four plug extension dangling from it (or may be 2 plug extensions) which is festooned with numerous attached electrical items from TV's, CD machines, Sky boxes, recording machines, radio's , Blue Ray Boxes, DVD players and so the list goes on. The problem is that nobody wanted to dig into the wall and replace the electrical sockets with larger units but this is not such a bad idea.
There are many items on the market at the present time and a good electrical supplier will have a good range of electrical sockets that can be seen on their web site which will allow the person perusing the site to find out just what other alternatives there are available . These multi pack electrical socket systems can also be very attractive in design and so much better than the knitting technique so often used. There are some excellent chrome electrical sockets around and these can be banked in different numbers. A good four socket system will have a good chrome face plate into which are placed four 13 Amp un-switched sockets built in banks of two's one above the other. This chrome face plate will look superb on the wall and will provide a very neat fitting for four separate electrical power outlets. These sockets are very easy for a skilled electrician to fit and the time taken will be minimal and the disturbance made will be very small.
These chrome socket systems are usually a special order item but that will only increase delivery by a couple of days but it is probably one of the most under used additions to the power supply of all electrical fittings. Almost every office has a bank of electrical goods around a desk with a computer, printer, phone and mobile phone on charge. The home kitchen has the kettle the radio, the mixer and a dozen other items that may be used but the only item usually seen is the twin socket power outlet when a four socket system would be ideal.
