FAQ's

bayonet cap brass bulb holder

What type of bulb holder can be fitted?

A number of different types of fitting can be installed, many of which are outlined below.

A bayonet bap bc22 b22. This heavy duty brass bulb holder is installed as standard within each of our lanterns. The fitting has a 2 amp rating and is generally used with a 60watt energy efficient bulb. If additional light coverage is

edison screw fix bulb fitting for lanternsAn Edison screw fix es27 e27. This is slightly larger bulb holder, also with a 2 amp rating. Again this is typically used with a 60 watt output bulb, but can be used with up to 200watts with the majority of lanterns. If required the wattage can be increased to up to 200watts within most of our lanterns.

Alternatively a 70watt or 150watt SON fitting which is typically used in more commercial settings, this high pressure sodium fitment, changes the luminaries configuration slightly.
With this fitting the bulb is mounted at the top of the lantern with the SON igniter and equipment hidden above the reflector plate, duelling functioning as a gear tray.

70-150W SON fitting for outdoor lanterns

A 150watt SON fitting has an approximate 5000 lumen output and is a warm orange/yellow light, resembling most closely the original Victorian gas lamps.

150watt metal halide As with the son fitting the bulb is mounted from the reflector plate in the roof of the lantern and the control gear situated on the reverse, out of sight.

Also with an approximate 5000 lumen output, the light is bright, crisp and white and is ideally used in areas where 
additional clear visibility is required i.e. car parks.

150W metal halide bulb fittingLED panel - with microwave and dusk till dawn sensor

Another top mounted fitting, the LED panel requires between 20-30watt input with the equivalent output as a 150watt metal halide fitting.

The LED panel features a built in microwave sensor with adjustable sensitivity and distance configurations. Maximum distance is generally around 10-12ft radius, and unlike other options the LED panel does not require a warm up time, making it ideal as a security light.

LED panel for wall lights and lanternsThe fitting also includes an integrated dusk till dawn sensor which means if the power to the lamp post is left on, the fitting will automatically turn itself off during daylight hours.

The LUX sensitivity of the lantern can also be configured from an easy to use paddle system.
