According to Legrand, the 164-2 plug will become essential in every household, as the new legislation of the wiring code states that all socket outlet points for new electrical installations shall include at least one socket-outlet complying with the SANS 164-2 and this may be combined with other types of socket-outlets.

Through the ongoing launch of advanced electrical and digital technologies, Legrand ensures the local market has access to the latest products. The company offers a technical advisory and support service throughout the country.
