What IP rating do your lights have?
Our wide range of lights have different IP ratings; we cover IP20, IP44 and IP65. We’ve got an Outdoor & Bathroom specific range as well as a Bulkhead range, which are all IP65 rated, which means they’re weather and waterproof. You can view our IP65 rated lights here.
Can the flex for pendant lights be shortened?
All pendant lights come with a 1m Flex as standard. The Globe Collection and 5 Wire Pendants with 2m Flex. Flex can be shortened to your desired length.
If you need longer Flex or a different colour, you can browse our Flex range here.
We offer a CE rewiring service for £20 per drop, or your electrician can rewire it on site. For rewiring help, please see: How to Rewire an ES E27 Bulb Holder of the Brooklyn range.
Can you supply a longer length of flex?
Yes, we can supply a continuous length of flex which your electrician can adjust on site, it is sold by the metre and delivered in a continuous length. We have a variety of colours available in either round or twisted. Please visit Fabric Flex to see the options. If you’d like to request a sample, please email us at [email protected] and we will send it free of charge.
Which range is suitable for the USA?
All our fittings can be wired to UL wiring; we offer a rewiring service for £30 per fitting/drop, or we can provide unwired components. For the Brooklyn range, we have the UL holders on site and there is no extra charge for that, just confirm your requirements in the notes section when ordering.
Can the shades be bought separately?
The majority of shades can be purchased separately; please choose the ‘Shade Only’ option in the drop down menu.
I would like to cluster 3 or 4 lights together, is there a ceiling rose that can take multiple lights?
Do I need to purchase anything else to be able to install the light?
All pendant and wall lights come as a complete set unless you have chosen the “Shade Only” option. The majority of our holders come with brackets; however, we do not supply installation screws.
Our Orlando and Swan Neck range does not come with a bracket, with these and any other non-bracket lights the necessary installation screws are provided.
It states the light bulb should be 40 Watts maximum. I found the similar light being sold elsewhere it said 60 Watts. Can you tell me if it will take a 60 or higher Watt light bulb?
Our lights take a maximum of a 40W incandescent bulb (except for our Sleek lights that take a maximum of a 25W), the bulbs we sell are 5W LED dimmable bulbs and are equivalent to 40W or 7W LED dimmable bulbs and are equivalent to 60W . If you decide to source the bulb elsewhere, it’s key to ensure they are a maximum of 40W incandescent; they can be any wattage if they’re LED.
Is there any warranty on your bulbs?
All our bulbs have a one-year warranty providing that there is a manufacturing fault.
Do you supply bulbs for a bayonet/E14 fitment?
All our bulbs are E27 fitting; unfortunately, we don’t use B22, bayonet fittings.
Do you have any emergency lights available?
We do not offer emergency lighting, but your electrician can convert our lights using an external battery pack.
Can I have any light in a different finish and how much would that cost?
We offer a bespoke service for the majority of our fittings. Please contact us with your request, and we will be able to let you know if it’s possible and give you a quote.
