It is essential to ensure that the installation of your plug sockets is completed safely and in compliance with the relevant regulations.

What is meant by gangs and poles on a plug socket?

Gangs refer to the number of sockets on a particular outlet - the more gangs, the more sockets available for use.

Poles, on the other hand, refer to the number of wires that can be connected to each socket. A 1-pole socket can accommodate a single wire, whereas a 2-pole socket can handle two wires.
