The two look very similar at first glance, don’t they? There’s a subtle difference, though: while the Forbes and Lomax socket has a black trim around the rocker switches, the BG doesn’t.
It’s a small aesthetic difference, certainly, but we must say that we actually like the look of the BG. They’re both flat-plate sockets in a brushed steel finish (which has also been called brushed chrome or polished satin), but the BG has something about it.
You Will Love the BG Flat Plate Twin Socket!
We like our outlets to be unobtrusive. It’s the 21st Century, sure, and we use our sockets a lot – there’s usually something or other plugged in – but when they’re not in use, they should be practically invisible.
With its shallow profile and slightly lacquered surface that deters fingerprint marks, this is a great socket for anywhere in the home.
Besides, the metallic finish fits in nicely with any colour scheme.
No Fuss. Cheaper. Slick Double Socket
But that’s not all: we would like to be able to install it with a minimum of fuss. The BG brushed steel twin socket more than passes that test, with captive screws and angled in-line terminals (which are also conveniently colour-coded).
Really, the only difference between the high-end designer item and the basic BG model is the cost – the BG retails for less than a third of the price.
For many of us, this makes the whole difference – especially as we need not one but more than ten double sockets for home or for the office. For such a price you can redecorate your entire house updating the sockets style to the 21st Century!
