Got any blacker?

Remember this great line from a 90’s Foot Locker commercial? Well the answer is YES, Trader has your black electrical accessories more than covered.

Black is such a classic colour that it never goes out of style whether it is coupled with white or used as a statement. Here are just some of the ways Trader products that can help add those finishing touches where black is the hero or just needs to blend in.

A popular choice with builders and consumers is our slim range of switches and sockets, Flat Cat. At just 4.5mm thin, they look super sleek in black and in the matt black finish. With the matt back trend continuing to dominate design style, you can now recommend switches and sockets to accompany other accessories, like kettles, toasters and tap ware, featuring the same finish.



Snow Leopard switches and sockets offer a luxury look at an affordable price. The black ‘glass’ look offers a modern finish for any new kitchen or bathroom space and now comes in black/black and black/silver. But why limit it to just those areas? Continue the modern look throughout the entire home! Don’t forget to include our black Snow Leopard Cooker Switch to complete the look!


Surely you don’t have a black smoke alarm? Yep, we sure do! Our recently released Bear Smoke Alarm now features 4 terminals and also comes with a skirt available to purchase separately (in black too!).


Our semi slim Leopard range is easy to install with standard mounting accessories – no awkward cut out required. You’ll find a full suite of switches and sockets available in black, including one, two and three gang architrave switches. Install throughout or add black Snow Leopard to complement where appropriate.


Readily being able to charge devices is no longer a luxury but an expectation. Our Cougar, fully integrated dual USB power point in black, is not only practical but is a great range addition, to a style that is one of the most familiar to electricians and consumers within the Australian market.


The ultimate in device charging and power outlets, the Puma 4x4 is a great addition to so many environments including kitchens, entertainment areas, studies, offices and retail spaces. You can also find a black version of this same product in our Cheetah range, with a touch of green featured on our dolly indicators, offering a unique point of different.


YES! We offer a black weatherproof power point!  We can’t believe how popular our black hippo is, with the product continuing to sell out not long after it hits the Wholesaler shelves (plus it’s now also available with a shallow base option for power points). Well get ready, we have added another hippo to our pod – a black weatherproof switch so now you can offer a solution for those outdoor areas where black (or dark colouring) is a feature.


Staying outdoors, our Arctic Owl Sensor can continue to blend in with it’s environment with a black version recently released. With many applications, this outdoor passive infrared sensor (IP66) offers security and convenience.


Make an impact with our black shell Scorpion downlights. Most people take the safe option and stick with white or silver shell’s but why not recommend a black shell to add that ‘WOW’ factor. It has a ‘matt’ appearance so perfect to install in conjunction with our Flat Cat Matt Black range.


Don’t forget our Meerkat range for your black Mech options, which now include matt black. These can also be printed on via our custom mech printing service. Simply order this service through your Wholesaler when you purchase your mechs (additional charges apply).


Complete the look with Dimpala dimmer knobs in both black and now matt black finishes. You’ll find in black, our rotary Dimmer (DIMR) or the impressive DIMPR – a dimmer and switch all in one, the perfect way to reduce clutter on black or matt black switch plates.


Last, but certainly not least – your customers can enjoy the convenience of a connected space with Powermesh. Three cover options are available in black - Puma, Leopard and Snow Leopard, offering a design to suit any style.


So when your customers ask ‘Does that come in black?’ you can present them with not just one, but multiple options to suit their project, renovation or new build.
