They approach the electrical accessory market in the UK with an aesthetic point of view. In the 1930s there were these elegant glass, nickel, and brass dolly switches used by the upper-class people in their prestigious manor houses and castles. So Forbes and Lomax made such items available to the general population with the launching of the Invisible Lightswitch, the toggle switch on a transparent acrylic plate. Underneath the plate, there's a wallpaper cut that can be painted to match the design and decor of the wall. And over time, they brought in other great finishes such as unlacquered brass, brushed brass, aged brass, antique bronze, Verdigris, nickel silver, stainless steel, and painted plate. The amazing Forbes and Lomax dolly switches can be in 2-way, intermediate and double pole versions. There are also retractive dolly switches to be used as dimmer controllers when connected to a dimmer pack or dimming system.
