Multifunction sockets: the hospitality hack you never knew existed

Wednesday, 1 May 2019  |  Admin

Summer is here, and as a fresh horde of lotioned holidaymakers race towards the sun-loungers, hotels and guest rooms around Europe are bracing themselves for the impact. While the debate rages on over which nation complains the most on holiday, those all-important Tripadvisor reviews are more essential than ever in attracting future guests.

One of the biggest bugbears of overseas travel is having to put up with the many variations of power sockets that exist throughout Europe. Three pins, two pins. Potato, potahto. For many holidaymakers it can all be very confusing. Even once you've got the right adapters, the resulting monstrosity of connections jutting out of the wall can look pretty clumsy indeed!

If only there was a one-size-fits-all approach to power sockets. Wouldn't that be a dream come true?

Dream... meet reality.

Introducing our multifunction socket range. Covering all the international bases, these versatile yet elegant sockets are a must-have inclusion in any guest house or hotel room. So simple, but so effective. Consider this a fantastic way to ease the hassles of your guests, while racking up that Tripadvisor cred.

Here is a breakdown showing the applications covered by our fantastically versatile sockets.

Type A + B: used in, among others, North and Central America and Japan

Type C: used in all countries of Europe except the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta

Type G: mainly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong

UK Product uses: Electric shavers, electric toothbrush, and many more..

No need to stress over adapters. No need to go without power. Our models cater for guests all over the world to create the perfect universal power socket.

So how is this achieved?

Our units manage to fuse together all these inputs in one. The unique shape of our inputs cater for a full range of connections, while still maintaining the classy appearance of our Crystal range. Sleek glass panels, screwless sockets, and two striking colour options ensure that you won't compromise in appearance.

Our multifunction sockets are available as single or double versions. And to bring that top-of-the-range feel to your interior, we have chrome-trim exteriors that really give that Retrotouch sheen.

We recognise how important convenience is for the modern traveller. And with a growing reliance on technology, power socket solutions should be as accessible as possible. With our multifunction power socket range, you can cater for a whole range of international fittings to provide maximum ease for overseas guests. Whether fitting out guest rooms or just your spare bedroom, it's not difficult to realise how these sockets can come in handy for you.
