Three reasons why Retrotouch products are perfect for a pet-friendly household

Sunday, 10 May 2020  |  Amit

Pets. We all love them, don't we?

Their wagging tail and beaming face as they greet you after a long shift at work. Their uncanny ability to cheer you up when you're having a bad day. Even their destructive tendencies have a certain charm.

All pet owners make need to make certain compromises when it comes to having an animal rampaging around the house. But when it comes to fixtures and fittings, Retrotouch stock the ultimate pet-friendly solutions to ensure you can get a clean, tidy house and a loveable fluffy family member living life to the full.

Here are three reasons why Retrotouch products are perfect for pet owners.


Flawless faceplates deter mess

All our switches and sockets are screwless, providing smooth surfaces which are not only easy to clean, but will ensure your fittings won’t be picking up stray pet hair. If you have a pet that sheds a lot, why not reduce the chances of hair and other mess getting into the crevices of your fixture? 

As an example, our Crystal Touch range provides a sleek led-lit panel which are very easy to maintain. Your pet can frolic around the home to its heart’s content. 

Minimal extrusion avoids injury

Pets like to play. Any experienced pet owner will be able to testify to the destructive power of that tendency. So while they chase tennis balls around the house, you need to ensure there aren’t any sharp extruding objects they could injure themselves on. 

It was perhaps with a nod to the gambolling pets of this country that our designers decided to make our panels ultra thin. At just 4mm, you will barely notice any change from the rest of the wall, and your dog or cat will be able to play on with reckless abandon. 


Smart thermostats keep your pets comfortable

We all look to our thermostats to keep the family comfortable and at ease, but what about our pets? They are the ones spending the most time indoors, so why not cater for their needs as well? 

With that in mind, a smart thermostat that allows for multiple heating periods throughout the day will ensure your home stays at a stable equilibrium. The result? Happy cats and dogs, or whatever niche pet you own.
