this is the double throw knife switch I have for my house, made by Koten in Japan, very heavy duty. Not cheap but the best you can find here, be carefull you don't buy a fake though. Lots more info on the following link:

And that is the most ugly switch I have ever seen

the one I found is 63 amp  = 13 k watt  I think much more than most privat gensets

the breaker panel in pictures below will be installed in my house soon

notice transfer switch bottom left, also  the RCCB to the right of it

the transfer switch in the picture is  125 amp

Yup it's ugly. It is the most commonly used transfer switch used on my island among foreigners who want to do it right. The housing is plastic but the base is ceramic and there is a lot if high quality copper used in this switch, every other one I looked at was very mickey mouse. It's larger than it looks in the pic.

I'm guessing that this is not the finished product-----with wires routed in that then out of the CB box?

The pic I posted was from the "mylifephilippines.com" website, not my set-up. Mine is just wall mounted and the wires are jacketed in flexible conduit.
