This is a range of Flat Tarnished Copper available from G&H Brassware.
They are copper plates that have been tarnished at the point of manufacturing, then lacquered for protection. This gives it a non-uniform finish. No two plates are the same!
As these plates are hand tarnished they are all unique, therefore colours and markings can vary.
Please note: These plates must be fitted with gaskets (supplied). Not suitable for freshly plastered walls. As these plates are made of copper they are not suitable for newly plastered walls. Please allow 6 months before fitting to freshly plastered walls. This ensures the walls are fully dried out and won't cause corrosion to the plates.
You can read more about why the copper plates are not suitable for freshly plastered walls here.
Don't forget these plates are flat, so require deeper back boxes than standard plates.
The manufacturer recommends the following back boxes:
Socket & Dimmers 35mm
USB Sockets, Shaver & Cooker Switches 47mm
To avoid installation problems fitting boxes must be fitted below the plaster depth.
