Focus SB offers one of the widest ranging and highest quality finishes portfolios in the UK. Our finishes enhance superior products with trimless design featuring crisp edges and clean lines, offering more metal plate with less plastic trim. We offer electrophoretic lacquering of polished brass plates providing durability and a hard wearing finish, ensuring our products keep their appearance over time, and are one of the only UK manufacturers able to match rocker and toggle switches to plate finishes.
Includes nickel and chrome, and is a process whereby the base material (solid brass) is coated in a thin layer of plating to achieve a high quality decorative finish (in addition to a corrosion protective layer to the base material).
Bronzes and unlacquered brass are commonly referred to as ‘living finishes’ due to the nature of the chemical process and the continuing reaction of the finish to the natural environment and general handling in the normal course of use. This means that the finish will change over time giving that authentic ‘ageing’ effect and individual character to the plate. Matching new plates to a ‘living finish’ previously supplied will not be exact, with no two plates the same.
We offer a range of painted finishes to customer specification (matching RAL colours). To ensure that all plates match, orders must be supplied in one batch (differences in shade can vary from batch to batch). Specific colour shades can look slightly different when applied to different base materials and shapes.
Primed plates are supplied with a white primer coating. Whilst some customers prefer to leave this as their final finish, it is designed to be lightly ‘keyed’ and painted on site to customer specification before final fitting.
