Clipsal by Schneider Electric received recognition at the recent 2022 Australian Good Design Awards for its new residential circuit protection range MAX9. 

The product is the next generation of circuit protection devices aimed at helping keep Australian homes safe, according to Tim Turrini-Rochford, design director for the Asia Pacific at Clipsal, an electrical safety and energy solutions innovator. 

MAX9 was awarded under the Product Design: Hardware and Building category for raising the current standard of circuit protection through streamlined installation and increased performance levels.

Built with electricians, for electricians, MAX9 is capable of achieving up to 15 times faster installation speed with the MAXBAR that helps connect all types of Clipsal RCBOs with the main switch. 

The MAXBAR eliminates the need for cables on the line side of RBCOs by distributing active and neutral feed to all types of Clipsal RCBOs, creating a neat overall look of the installation. 

“We invest heavily in research and development to ensure end users and installers have a better overall experience when they choose Clipsal products. We are determined to empower electricians and customers with smart, energy-efficient, and intuitively designed solutions that can be incorporated into their residential or commercial planning,” said Turrini-Rochford. 

Founded in 1958, the Australian Good Design Awards is one of the longest-running international design awards in the world that recognises cutting-edge design and innovative products available to consumers globally. 

Each category was judged by a panel of more than 70 designers, engineers, architects, and thought leaders who came together to champion process and system designs that underpin Australian homes, businesses, industries, economies, and lifestyles. 

“We are honoured and extremely proud to be recognised by the esteemed Australian Good Design Awards at this year’s ceremony,” Turrini-Rochford added.  

The MAX9 range product is now available on the Clipsal website and at wholesale locations.
