Forbes & Lomax, Invisible LED Compatible Rotary Dimmer Range (Stainless Steel Knobs)
THE INVISIBLE LIGHTSWITCH
Inspired by the 1930s glass switches but with all the advantages of modern technology. The Invisible Lightswitch® has become synomynous with Forbes & Lomax.
Forbes & Lomax, Invisible LED Compatible Rotary Dimmer Range (Unlacquered Brass, Antique Bronze, Stainless Steel & Nickel Silver Knobs), switches and dimmers have 3mm beveled transparent acrylic plates which are secured without the use of fixing screws. The plates are flush to the wall and are supplied with brass, nickel silver, stainless steel or antique bronze (toggle) switches or dimmer knobs.
0.5mm ‘inner plates’ of primed aluminium sit behind the Invisible plates which can be decorated in the same way as the walls giving the illusion that the wallpaper or paint finish runs seamlessly behind the switchplate.
Invisible plates and rocker switches with 2mm thick acrylic plates complete the range.
LED compatible dimmers have a soft start which gives a gradual increase in the intensity of the light when switched on. This protects the lamp from the in-rush current and helps to extend the lamp life. These dimmers are programmable with three driving modes available to cover 90% of the LEDs on the market. This programmable mode allows you to optimise performance and reduce noise and flicker by adjusting the minimum brightness level.
These dimmers are suitable for up to 100W of dimmable LED lighting (max 10 lamps) or up to 250W of mains voltage incandescent and halogen bulbs, as well as good quality electronic low voltage transformers. Intelligent, self-resetting protection is included to protect the dimmer from overload. These dimmers are not suitable for use with wire wound transformers.
All dimmers are 2 way.
2 way or intermediate push on-off switches which resemble rotary dimmers, can be mixed with rotary dimmers to provide a uniform look.
