This is the Forbes and Lomax 1GCOMBO/BMA, a 1 Gang Combination Plate in Antique Bronze Flat Plate. It is the combination plate only - the module/s have to be ordered separately. This combination plate consists of the grid, plate, and screws. It has visible screws on the plate.

The combination range from Forbes and Lomax allows you to create multi-gang combinations of Telecom, Data, Audio, and Visual socket outlets. This range is available in all the Forbes and Lomax popular finishes, and they come with an option of White or Black (B) inserts. 

You simply need to select the number of items you want on a plate, choose the finish of the plate, and then mix-and-match the modules you put on the plate/s. 

For example, to obtain a 4 gang painted plate with 1 x TV + 1 x Satellite + 2 data sockets, you need 1 x 4GCOMBO + 1 x SAT/ANG + 1 x COAX/ANG + 2 x C6/ANG (and you can choose whether you want white or black plastic trim). 

As this is the plate only, you will have to purchase the module/s separately. It requires modules such as T1/ANG (angled master phone socket), T2/ANG (angled slave phone socket), C6/ANG (angled CAT6 data socket), C6A/ANG (CAT6A Screened angled data module), RJ12/ANG (angled RJ12 socket), COAX/ANG (non-isolated angled TV socket), BLANK (blank module), SAT/ANG (satellite connector angled module), RCA (RCA module), SAT2 (2 gang  Satellite module flat front), HDMI/ANG (angled Hi-Spec module), SPEAK (speaker outlets module), or PHONO (phono module, flat fronted), which need to be ordered separately.

Explaining and Introducing the Forbes and Lomax Combination Range (Grid Modules)

The grid plates and grid modules are becoming more and more popular, with the needs for wiring devices being different than the classical 2G or 3G sockets/switches/data sockets. Forbes and Lomax also has a new range of high-quality grid plates and modules which they call, The Combination Range. This range allows you to create a multiple gang plate according to your own specifications to meet your needs. You have complete flexibility when both designing and planning the room layout when you are not constrained by the limitations of traditional wiring devices. The Forbes & Lomax Combination Range As per our previous blog post, the Forbes and Lomax combination range includes a large variety of audio, visual, telephone, HDMI, phone, etc modules and 3+ gang plates for you to make up hundreds of combinations, as needed. With the current development of the technologies and the increase of the number of gadgets, there may be a need for USB wall sockets. These are designed to charge mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, iPads, Satellite Navigation equipment, and digital cameras. In other words, the Forbes & Lomax combination range includes both the plates (in all the great finishes provided by them) and the modules designed to meet your electrical wiring needs!Buy Forbes and Lomax Combination Range How to Order the Combination Range? We are pleased to announce that the Combination Range can be ordered at SparksDirect.co.uk. You simply need to visit the Forbes and Lomax section and then scroll all the way to the bottom of the list where you can find the following sections: Combination Range Modules, 1G / 2G / 3G / 4G Combination Plates. All the plates come in invisible, unlacquered brass, stainless steel, nickel silver, antique bronze, painted socket, and verdigris range as standard. What you need to do is select the combination plate (2 - 4 gang) in the finish you desire, and then add the modules which you need. Let's say, for example, that you need a 3-gang combination plate in a painted range containing 1 TV socket, 1 Satellite F Connector socket, and one CAT5 socket - all in a white insert. What you need to order is 1 x 3GCOMBO, 1 x COAX, 1 x SAT, and 1 x C5, mentioning in the comments section "I want all of these with white insert". What does the Combination Range Look Like? If you visit the website and try to see the pictures for this range, it will be a bit difficult - the manufacturer doesn't supply images for the plates or modules themselves :( but there are a bunch of pictures of some of the more popular grid plates and modules via Forbes and Lomax. Take a look at them below and try to guess what modules are used - you will be inspired to design and set up your own wiring accessories following the same pattern!
