Why Focus SB

Focus SB is a British company dedicated to manufacturing electrical wiring accessories of unparalleled quality for over 30 years. Industry pioneers, the company’s innovative design and cutting edge manufacturing techniques, paired with superior materials and components, ensures Focus SB’s sockets and switch-plates are highly sought after for prestigious interiors projects, both in the UK and globally.

 

With all products manufactured and hand-finished in the UK, Focus SB is the only electrical accessory manufacturer to boast total control of the manufacturing process in-house at its East Sussex facility. The company works closely with designers and installers every step of the way, and its in-house engineering and finishing facility enables the company to be flexible and reactive to customer demands, especially for bespoke products. Customers benefit from tailored services including the production of one-off samples specific to their brief, as well as the opportunity to view Focus SB’s manufacturing processes. 

 

Unique to Focus SB, electrophoretic lacquering of polished brass plates provides durability and offers a hard wearing finish that ensures its products will keep their appearance over time. Superior products with trimless design feature crisp edges and clean lines, and offer more metal plate with less plastic trim. Focus SB is the only UK manufacturer able to match its rocker and dolly switches to its plate finishes.

 

Product innovations have seen Focus SB develop and manufacture the UK’s only totally flush-fit faceplate, the Focus SB Smoothie®, in collaboration with the forward-thinking designers at SHH architecture and interior design practice. The company’s USB socket is one of few products in the UK with dedicated amperage for faster simultaneous charging of tablet and mobile ‘phone. Focus SB’s energy-saving hotel key card switches are rated at 32 amps, where many alternatives are not.

 

Focus SB offers extensive plate ranges and options, with a bespoke service for special requirements, ensuring continuity of finish for every project. Offering the highest quality ranges of socket and switch-plates suitable for installation in high-end residential, hotels, commercial interiors and luxury yachts, Focus SB’s extensive portfolio features Hampton Court Palace,  The All England Lawn Tennis Club, London Hilton on Park Lane and Lansdowne House to name but a few. 

 

Focus SB welcomes enquiries from interior designers, M&E consultants, architects, property developers, electrical contractors, lighting design consultants and specifiers. The company’s knowledgeable sales consultants are available across the UK to discuss interiors projects in person, and to arrange bespoke samples.
