  • When looks matter, the Legrand Excel Life is the go-to product. Focusing on design technology, convenience and featuring a 10mm slim profile, gadget guys as well the style conscious are sure to be well pleased. With a carefully sourced and curated selection of high quality, classic finishes, you're guaranteed to impress and delight end-users: available as standard in gloss white or Urban Grey, Excel Life also offers coverplate options in Gloss black, Matt Silver, Gloss Ice and Diesel, completing the sleek design of the range.

  • For added value and extra peace of mind, all Excel Life powerpoints include internal safety shutters to prevent accidental contact with live components. This built-in safety feature can be further enhanced by the “extra-safe” double powerpoints: the plug needs to be rotated to be fully inserted in the socket, preventing accidents with young children. Legrand believes in quality and provides customers with the safest products.

  • Excel Life powerpoints have been completely engineered at the back to minimise the footprint, thus simplifying installation in hard-to-reach locations. The double powerpoint width is just 66mm whereas the single powerpoint is 37mm. Thanks to this reduced size at the back, double powerpoints will fit into 2 x Ø40mm holes and single powerpoints into a Ø40mm hole, making them a breeze to install in cabinetry.

  • Designed with the installer in mind, Excel life powerpoints feature significantly improved cable terminals: a 4.5mm funnel draws the cables into the terminal with ease. Those cable terminals have been enlarged to fit 4 x 2.5mm2 cables (the most commonly used cables in building construction), and bear raised insulated barriers which provide extra protection against copper exposure or accidental short circuit.

    Excel life powerpoints will always be perfectly fitted on a wall thanks to their elongated mounting holes on the grid. With 8mm to play with, contractors will appreciate the flexibility in vertical adjustment, leveling and alignment of multiple devices for a perfect end result.

    Sometimes, even the smaller details can make a big difference: Excel life powerpoints screws live up to this statement. Carburised, the screws are made of super hard steel to sustain high torque, even with power tools, while deeper heads enable excellent grip. The screws on Excel life powerpoints are captive, which means screws always remain captured in the thread with no risk of being lost in tight cavities. Finally, those screws are ergonomically angled to facilitate fast fit off and prevent damage when power drills are used.
