Make Your Renovation Remarkable With The Details

RJ Diaz for RenovatingNYC

It’s the little things that make a difference.  I see the struggle all the time with clients.  They want to make sure that the money spent on their renovation is “visible”.  Even with an unlimited budget, you want to maximize the return for every renovation dollar spent. Little details can go a long way to making your renovation remarkable.

Take, for instance, the beautiful functional electrical hardware being produced by Forbes & Lomax. Sometimes, a company can make something as pedestrian as a light switch become a work of art.  Wouldn’t you be proud to use these every day?

TOGGLE SWITCHES Forbes & Lomax toggle switches are available in all plate finishes. The switches are rated at 15 amps and come in 3-way and 4-way versions. 3-way switches can also be used as single pole switches.   Toggle switches can be mixed with Push Buttons and Rotary Dimmers on the same plate.

ROTARY DIMMERS Rotary Dimmers push to switch on and off and rotate to dim and brighten. Incandescent, magnetic low voltage and 0-10v versions are available.   Excellent state-of-the-art solid state circuitry design saves energy and extends bulb life when the lighting level is reduced. Rotary dimmers are available in all plate finishes and are supplied with a 0.79 inch (20mm) diameter knob. Rotary dimmers can be mixed with toggle switches and push buttons on the same plate.

PUSH BUTTONS Forbes & Lomax push buttons are momentary action (push-to-make) low voltage, dry contact closure switches which can be used to control home automation and lighting control systems.   When interfacing the push button with systems made by others, please contact the manufacturer of the system to check the suitability.   Push buttons can be mixed with toggle switches and rotary dimmers on the same plate

Important Note: I’ve had these installed on a few high-end townhouse and apartment renovations in New York City, and the subtle effect of beautifully crafted light switches is amazing. However, it is essential that you work with a professional (architect, lighting designer, or Forbes & Lomax representative) to make sure that the switches you want to use are compatible with the lighting you have or want to install. 

HISTORY OF FORBES & LOMAX

Established in London 25 years ago, Forbes & Lomax have, from the start, approached the lighting control market from an aesthetic point of view and have now become the first point of reference for architects and designers.

The elegant glass, nickel and brass switches of the 1930’s were no longer available and the modern equivalents were ugly and unsuitable for high end projects. It was with these problems in mind that Forbes & Lomax launched the Invisible Lightswitch®; a simple transparent acrylic plate allowing the wallpaper or paint to show through, with a stylish metal toggle switch in the centre.

After much thought to design and technical specification (given the difference in shape and voltage between switches and outlets in the United States, Canada and Europe), Forbes & Lomax have now launched the Invisible Lightswitch® in America and Canada.

All Forbes & Lomax U.S. products have been tested for compliance to UL and CSA safety standards by a nationally recognised testing laboratory. They are designed to fit US wall boxes.
