Social Grilling!

With summer right around the corner, many of us are dusting off our grills and smokers and waiting eagerly for the next opportunity to entertain and host. Grill-Outs are a staple part of our social life. Good food and nice weather, what’s not to like!? However, this community get-together spirit is under threat. In today’s modern world, social isolation runs prevalent. Many of us remained glued to our phones even when gathered with friends and family.

Once, our ancestors cooked, looked up at the stars, and ate together, regaling tales and strengthening bonds. One company looking to revive this level of human interaction have already begun their journey. The notion of social grilling has once again been restored. It’s time to slow down and take a break from the fast pace of life we live and get back to basics.

Their product is a beautifully crafted wooden table with a working grill built into the center. The idea simple, unify friends and family by actively involving everyone in the cooking and more importantly, the eating experience! Remember the feeling of roasting marshmallows around the campfire, free-flowing conversations, and good times? Now every meal can bring as much comfort as making fresh smores!

With a product such as this, a carefully made, durable piece of furniture, with a fully functioning grill, there were a few careful considerations that needed to be met when choosing a switch. As the table is designed for outdoor/patio use, any switch would have to be capable of withstanding outdoor use with extreme weather. That’s where the ULV comes into the story. UL Certified and sealed to an IP67 rating, the ULV7 was the obvious choice for this particular application.

The switch features a 22mm diameter panel cutout, as well as LED Illumination and custom, etched markings. Another reason why the ULV series is so popular is the Pre-Wired capabilities they offer. With a choice of direct wires, a molded boot, and a quick-connect detachable socket, even the pickiest of engineers will be satisfied!
