From Invisible Lightswitch to Painted Sockets: Forbes and Lomax in Pictures

When the modern equivalents for the elegant glass, nickel, and brass switches are no longer attractive or unsuitable for prestigious projects that interior designers work on, it's time to check out the Forbes and Lomax "invisible Lightswitch". Of course, the plate is not invisible - it is a transparent acrylic plate allowing the wallpaper or paint to show through, and it comes with a stylish metal toggle switch right in the center (or a rocker switch, a socket, a dimmer, etc for that matter). Forbes and Lomax was established over 20 years ago and right from the start they approached the electrical accessory market from an aesthetic point of view. Starting with the Invisible Light Switch and going on to many other stylish finishes like unlacquered brass, stainless steel, nickel silver, antique bronze, verdigris, and painted plate, Forbes & Lomax has done a great job in both manufacturing and supplying excellent UK made stylish switches, sockets, and dimmers to suit the demands of both traditional and contemporary architects and interior designers, as well as the electrical contractors.

A regular switch (rocker switch or dolly/toggle switch) is a 2-way switch; an intermediate switch has a special function. An intermediate switch is used in the middle of a 3 or more ways lighting circuit. For example, in a large room you can have two 2-way switches at either end, but if you want to add one in the middle, you need an intermediate switch. If there's a staircase with many floors, you need a 2-way switch at either ends and as many intermediate switches you need in the middle. An intermediate switch cannot work on its own; it requires 2-way switches at the end of the circuit.

What is a 2-way Switch?

A 2-way switch is a normal on/off switch for turning lights ON or OFF; a 2-way switch means there is or can be another switch controlling the same light.
