Forbes and Lomax has a complete range of dimmers, switches and socket outlets are available to suit the exacting demands of architects and interior designers of both traditional and contemporary persuasion. The switches manufactured by Forbes & Lomax have pioneered the screwless, flush to the wall plate, creating a very sleek look. As well as the Invisible Lightswitch, the company also offers other finishes like: the Invisible plate range (pictures), the Unlacquered Brass range, the Antique Bronze range, the Nickel Silver range, the painted socket range, or the stainless steel range, all of which are accompanied by a full range of matching outlets. To find out more about the the Forbes and Lomax switches, sockets and dimmers, all finishes, all ranges, consult the Articles about the Switches and sockets section. Below, we would like to introduce and define some Forbes & Lomax wiring devices like: The Dimming System, the Dolly Switch, the Button Dimmer Controller, the Rocker Switch, the Rotary Dimmer, and the Sockets.
The Dimming System from Forbes and Lomax is a four channel dimmer with four easily programmable scenes in addition to full manual dimming and on/off buttons. The system is easily installed and quick to program.
The programming and operation is achieved from a master panel, with slave panes and remote controls also available if control is required from additional locations. The Dimming System is available in all finishes with a choice of white or black buttons. Contact us for more information.

The dolly switches / toggle switches are lever switches with a retaining ring that holds the face plate in place leaving no need for fixing screws.
They are available in all colours and configurations and can be mixed with Button Dimmer Controllers on the same plate if required.
The Button Dimmer Controller is a push-to-make momentary action switch that controls an In-Line Dimmer Pack. The system allows the dimming of a light circuit from more than one position.
Combinations of Button Dimmer Controllers and dolly(toggle) switches on the same plate are available. Button Dimmer Controllers can also be used to control other lighting or home automation systems that require a simple momentary contact closure switch.

A complete range of rocker switches is available in either black, white or metal, to match the plate finishes. These kind of switches are the more “classical” switches everyone is used with.
The Metal switches have a slim plastic trim around them in either black or white – black insert or white insert.
Rotary dimmers push in to switch on and off and rotate to dim or brighten. Intelligent Dimmers are the same in appearance to the standard rotary dimmer but include a few extra features. Intelligent dimmers are a soft start so instead of switching the light up to the set intensity immediately, it will turn on the light with a slight graduation which is kinder to the bulb. Intelligent Dimmers are also programmed to detect and overload and are better at controlling ‘difficult’ loads such as when low-voltage and mains voltage lamps are mixed on the same circuit. Intelligent Dimmers are so suitable for wirewound (toroidal) transformers as well as good quality electronic transformers.
A full range of socket outlets and fused connections are available in all finishes. Socket types include 13amp, 5amp, 2amp, TV, telecom, data, audio, shaver and floor sockets. A choice of black and white inserts is available. The 13amp sockets and the switched fused connections can be supplied with metal switches if desired.
The European sockets are also available in all finishes. As with all our sockets, they fit flush to the wall and come with white or black inserts. All the European sockets must be installed into British Standard wall boxes which must be recessed into the wall by 6mm.
