COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:
Classic Switches proudly manufacture completely Australian Made Products
Classic Switches use only quality Australian Made Clipsal switchgear in the manufacture of their switches and accessories
|CARE & MAINTENANCE:
Do not use Chemical or Abrasive cleaners on the brass surfaces. The lacquered surface should only be wiped with a soft cloth and we recommend the occasional application of a pure non-abrasive polish such as Mr. Sheen.
|REPOLISHING & RELAQUERING:
Classic Switches are happy to repolish and relacquer any covers for a small fee or use the following D.I.Y. method of refinishing.
1: Remove covers from switches, they are legal and safe with the covers removed. It is not necessary to turn the power off.
2: Remove old lacquer with thinners or acetone applied with a soft cloth.
3: Repolish with a brass/metal polish.
4: Apply a clear metal lacquer which is available in spray packs.
