I saw some dimmers in a customers house today but I was only there for a bid and did not remove a wall plate to see who makes them, I'm hoping someone can help me out. They were Decora, but split in half long ways, so the rocker switch was just as tall as a decora switch, but 1/2 as wide, and the other side was the slider, which could slide the full length of the rocker. They looked awesome, now I need some tomorrow but haven't been able to find them.

No, the slider part is the same width as the rocker, each about 1/2" wide

J, Is that a dual single pole dimmer?

If it is, @ 300W (ea) that aint bad.

A bit pricey but....

Thanks for everyones help, went to the house today and pulled one, it was a Cooper: http://www.ccl-light.com/docs/indoor/switches/dimmers/6420/index.html

The left side is a tall rocker, the dimmer is on the right.
