1-Gang Vs. 2-Gang Vs. 3-Gang
The terms 1-gang, 2-gang, 3-gang and so on refer to the number of switches it can support. 1-gang units house a single toggle switch or a duplex power outlet. In a 2-gang unit, you’ll see a pair of switches next to each other — common when you have multiple lighting circuits in a room.
1-gang, 2-gang, and 3-gang wall plates are generally uniform in size — standard dimensions are 4.5 by 2.75 inches for a 1-gang switch, though oversized product lines also exist. It’s always best to check the dimensions of any product before you purchase.
Beyond the configuration and sizing, other factors to think about when buying wall plates include child safety — some models have covers and additional features to prevent little fingers from touching electrical components — and whether the unit screws or snaps on. Screwless wall plates are just as easy to install as standard wall plates and have a cleaner look.
