Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions from our worldwide clientele. If your particular question is not answered here, please complete the 'Contact Us' form with the details of your query and we will be delighted to respond

CEILING LIGHTS:
In the case of ceiling lights fitted with an adjustable chain, the height of the ceiling light is taken from the lowest point of the fitting to where the chain starts. An allowance of approximately 180mm or 7” should be added to the height of such ceiling lights to allow for a minimal length of chain and the ceiling rose

All ceiling lights are supplied with approximately 500mm or 20" of chain. If additional chain is required please specify this with your order so that the fitting can be wired with an additional amount of cable. Additional costs may apply

Please note that ceiling lights are NOT supplied with fixing hooks or plates. We strongly advise our customers to engage a qualified electrician to inspect and assess the ceiling construction, who can then supply the appropriate hook, plate or fitting mechanism

WALL LIGHTS:
4” or 5” candle clip or base pendant shades can be used on most wall lights, however we recommend half candle clip shades on wall lights with a projection of less than 75mm or 3”

Swing arm wall light heights are measured from the lowest point of the arm to the middle of the bulb holder, except on the WL90 & 91 where the arm is fully adjustable and the height listed refers to the wall mounted rod

Shades smaller than 8” are not recommended for swing arm wall lights

LAMP SHADES:
Shades can be supplied with all global fittings - BC, ES or finial fitting.

All shades of can be supplied with gimbal or base pendant fittings and shades that are smaller than 8" can also be supplied with a candle clip fitting

Finial fitting shades can be supplied on all US & UK lamps if preferred. Please specify if required at the time of order as saddles for harps and finials will need to be added and additional costs will apply

Both laminated and pleated shades can be made in customer's own fabric. A sample must be supplied to us before confirmation of the order so that we can assess the suitability of the fabric for either lamination or pleating. Fabric must be supplied on a roll as creases from folding will render the material unusable
