In my kitchen remodel, I need to incorporate three switch functions for various groups of lights. All the wiring to do this is available at one three gang box. For a number of reasons, it's impractical to add a fourth box.
Currently, the three gang box consists of (left to right) a single rocker light switch, then a dual 115VAC outlet pair, and an identical one next to it on the right. My kitchen remodeler tells me that a "split switch" could go in the middle of this array (two rocker switches mounted sideways), replacing the AC outlets. I would --- and need to --- retain the AC outlets on the outside of this position.
Does such an item exist? I can't seem to find anything by searching on "split switch"...is there a different name? Thanks.
