New Black Nickel Range Available Now! Created on August 18, 2017, Updated: August 18, 2017 by The Socket Store Team We admit, it has been a long time coming, but we’re pleased to say we now have a range of black nickel sockets and switches in stock and ready to go. Better still, it’s not just any black nickel, it comes from the leading brands of sockets and switches. The range is the Volex black nickel sockets and switches. We have plenty in stock, with more to follow. The stock we have available is also available for a next day upgrade, so if you’re in a rush, you’re also in luck! This is the one range we’ve been excited to bring in for a while (yes, we really do get excited with new ranges of sockets and switches!). It’s one of the ranges we have been asked for over the years, but we wanted to make sure we chose the right manufacturer, and we have certainly found it in the Volex range. Black nickel, for those that aren’t familiar with it, is a gloss black finish with almost an iridescent shine to it. It is a notoriously difficult finish to produce consistently, and we wanted to ensure the range met the standard our customers have come to expect from our ranges. Volex, and it’s parent company Electrium, have the experience and expertise to make sure they meet our exacting standards. As you would expect to see from us by now, it comes as an extensive range of sockets, switches, toggle switches and dimmers. There are a number of data plates, such as TV and telephone sockets, and of course the usual cooker sockets, shaver sockets and fan isolators. Feel free to browse around the new range. If there are any plates you would like us to add, please give our customer service team a shout, we’re always keen to ensure we have the right plates for you. We, of course, have plenty of other black plates to choose from, including matt black, black glass (Retrotouch), iridium black and a number of other finishes – yes there really are more than one black sockets and switches available!
