Series 5: The toughest of the tough. “Die Dickhäuter.” For humid environments and outdoor use. Moisture-proof Bakelite switches. IP44.
They are a piece of electrical industry history. From the late 19th century well into the mid-20th century, they could be found in industrial settings and home basements, bearing famous names: Siemens-Schuckert and Dr. Deisting. They were among the technical equipment that inspired deep trust in its functionality through its sturdy physical presence alone. Truly, the toughest of the tough. And they truly deserve that trust. Electricians today are still amazed at how well even very old installations work, both electrically and mechanically. That is one of the reasons we decided against reinventing these switches and outlets. They remain just as they were: crafted from 2.5-millimetre Bakelite, with a switching mechanism that makes a satisfying and authentic sound.

For mounting: The housing of the damp-proof series consists of two parts. The base assembly is mounted on the wall and the cables are placed through the cable entries and sealed tightly. The internal parts are mounted and wired into the base group and then the housing tops are put on and screwed. The switches and sockets are completely enclosed by the two housing parts and protected from moisture.
For mounting on plaster, we offer textile-covered cables and matching cable clamps.
