This article is a continuation of Introducing Forbes and Lomax ranges of Invisible LightSwitch, Unlacquered Brass and Stainless Steel, where Forbes and Lomax as a company and manufacturer of high quality wiring devices is presented. To find out more about the Forbes and Lomax ranges of switches and sockets, you can consult the Forbes and Lomax switches, sockets and dimmers, all finishes, all ranges, or the Invisible plate range and pictures, the Unlacquered Brass range, the Antique Bronze range, the Nickel Silver range, the painted socket range, or the stainless steel range.
The Nickel Silver range has a highly polished plate creating a mirror finish. Nickel Silver first became popular in the 19th century due to its similarity to Sterling Silver and it was commonly used for various decorative items around the home.
It has a luxurious appearance which is much warmer and less clinical than chrome, making it more appealing for living areas.
The Nickel Silver range sits well in both traditional and contemporary interiors.
The Antique Bronze range has a rich warm hue to the plates making them attractive to both contemporary and traditional interiors.
These switches also work particularly well on wood panelling and other unusual surroundings. The plates all have a slightly variable finish which adds to the distinctive look of the range. Many of the early light switches were made in Antique Bronze and the finish became very fashionable in the Art Deco period. The Antique Bronze finish is durable and will stand the test of time.
Original Antique Bronze switch plates can be seen in old buildings today still looking great almost a hundred years on. All socket outlets are available and are supplied with black inserts to complement the dark finish of the plates.
The Painted Socket Range has been created to complement the Invisible Lightswitch. The Painted Sockets are supplied with etch-primed face plates ready to be painted in the same colour as the wall, making them as unobtrusive as possible.
A choice of black or white inserts is available and 13A sockets and switches fused connections can be supplied with metal switches if desired.
