About Us

Focus SB® is an award winning British brand renowned for the design, development and manufacture of premium electrical wiring accessories. At the forefront of its industry for over 44 years and committed to reducing its carbon footprint, Focus SB’s long standing ability to create desirable faceplate and light switch designs and finishes uses a blend of traditional artisan crafts combined with cutting edge technology complemented by years of in-house experience and investment in training.

Innovative, hand finished products are specified by prominent design consultants for world class hospitality and leisure resorts, prime residential developments, heritage buildings, royal residences, superyachts and commercial projects internationally.

Distinctive switch faceplates and socket outlets are finished by hand, with many processes still involving a high level of human contact directly with the components throughout the manufacturing journey, from raw material to the final assembly.

Unique in its industry, Focus SB can produce bespoke light switches and power outlets to match a variety of smart home controls products. The company partners and develops products with specialist prime residential technology system integrators to provide harmonious design and finish detail solutions. An in-house finishing service enables design consultants and specifiers to seamlessly match finishes across multiple electrical accessories from switches and sockets to home cinema, media room and security products.

In an exclusive collaboration with Focus SB, Lutron has added a raw brass faceplate kit for its Palladiom keypads, finished by Focus SB, with the launch of high-quality Alisse electrical accessories manufactured by Focus SB to complement its wall controls.

Offering one of the widest ranging and highest-quality products and finishes portfolios in the world, Focus SB manufactures all of its own internal switch and socket components in-house in the UK. This enables custom finishing for dimmer switches selected for ‘hotel style’ combination plates where lighting and power elements are to be built into one unit.

An exclusive eye-catching collection described as ‘wall jewellery’ designed by Kelly Hoppen CBE was launched in 2019, with 'Kelly Hoppen by Focus SB' available in the UK, China and the Middle East.

Winner of the King’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in 2023, Focus SB made history in its industry in 2017 when it became the first and only British and European manufacturer to gain accreditation to supply and sell wiring accessories directly from Europe to mainland China’s luxury construction marketplace.

How would you describe your style?

"With an unrivalled design and finish detail offering featuring traditional to modern style options, Focus SB’s wide ranging and high quality finishes portfolio uniquely enables customers to match finishes across multiple electrical accessories and specialist smart home solutions. Finishes enhance superior products with trimless light switches featuring crisp edges and clean lines, offering more metal plate with less plastic trim. Lacquering of polished brass plates provides durability and a hard wearing finish, ensuring products keep their appearance over time, and Focus SB is one of the only UK manufacturers able to match rocker and toggle switches to faceplate finishes."

"Focus SB has unveiled a high quality low profile solid brass flat screwless plate featuring distinctive square corner detail entitled Renaissance, an evolution of a classic design.

Modern and crafted to last in-house from highest specification recycled solid brass, the stylishly symmetrical Renaissance low profile screwless plate showcases a striking product featuring outstanding precision engineered qualities with deliberately unbranded socket inserts and a lack of visible screws for a minimalist design aesthetic.

Imagined in-house, the Renaissance product design is led by sustainable processes from start to finish. Available in bespoke sizes, this attractive low profile solution offers a superior flush electrical installation. With precisely machined switch and socket apertures, detail and craftsmanship are reinforced by reverse pressing blank brass plates for sharper edges which are hand polished for consistent high quality, a signature touch unique to Focus SB.

Exclusive to the Renaissance product range, a finishes palette comprises ‘Ochre’, ‘Sienna’, ‘Roma’ and ‘Umber’. A fifth finish entitled ‘Canvas’ offers homeowners, architects and interior designers primed and bespoke colour coated solutions for design story continuity. Plates are sprayed with matt lacquer in-house to retain lustre.

Available for architects and interior designers to specify for prestigious interiors projects in Hong Kong, the Middle East and the UK, Renaissance faceplates are manufactured, finished, tested, assembled and packaged in-house across the company’s three production sites in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex prior to despatch.

Renaissance is the rebirth of a classic design, and a product like no other on the luxury market today – a true work of art."
