This is the Forbes and Lomax 1GDIM/OLB, a 1 Gang Dimmer Plate in Aged Brass- Grid, Plate and Knob only.
Please note: this dimmer plate cannot be sold separately; the required number module/s need to purchased together with the plate (it's a mix-and-match plate).
The Forbes and Lomax Aged Brass finish has been designed to look beautifully antiqued upon installation and has been left unlacquered to patina even more over time. Alternatively, it can be polished to bring back some of the shine.
The real beauty of this finish from Forbes & Lomax lies in the mellow aged look of the brass, as though it has been an original part of the interior for many years. The toggles, dimmer knobs and push buttons are supplied polished but unlacquered, providing a subtle accent to the more muted finish of the plates.
- It is a single dimmer plate consisting of the grid, the plate, and the knobs only; the dimmer or switch modules need to be ordered separately.
- If you already have a particular finish of Forbes and Lomax at home and you wish to add more modules, this is one of the "mix-and-match" plates - you can select the desired plate and the required modules to obtain the item you require.
- For example, if you require a 4 gang aged brass plate with 2 LED dimmers and 2 dummy dimmers, you can purchase 1 x X4GIM/OLB + 2 x ZT250 + 2 x ZOPUSH.
- These items 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 Aged Brass and the finish became very fashionable in the Art Deco period.
