Many universities are moving away from the old model of catered halls to accommodation with en-suite and self-catering facilities that provide a more independent living experience.
Prefect Controls have been manufacturing control systems specifically designed for student accommodation for many years and last year launched the all-new HobSafe timer which ensures hobs cannot be left on should the cook be distracted.
2017 sees HobSafe available also as a two-gang HORIZONTAL unit to complement the more streamlined horizontal isolator switches being fitted in many student kitchenettes.
Both tamper-proof models include factory-set 15-, 20-, 30- or 45-minute run times, LED operation light and a re-set button for extended use, and due to large terminals making them less fiddly to fit, are a favourite with electricians.
