The total switch range coupled with ACL button type switch, which was introduced back in 2013, posted the highest ever record sales during this year for the past 5 years. This was purely due to the strength and vast market acceptance of the ACL Elegance range.
ACL Elegance was developed with a series of accurate research and detailed developement techniques. Thereby the range was brought to market to cater the need of all customer groups, who engage with the product. In a consumer’s point of view ACL Elegance demonstrates several attractive features including a proportional/matching look on the dolly button and front plate, reflective lenses enhancing its elegant look, a firm but smooth switch action and a hairline gap between the dolly and plate.
