What makes our Lanterns so special?

Each lantern features a specially designed reflective panel, which not only channels light evenly downwards it also ensure that the lantern is extremely efficient.

If you are having difficulty with this or would like to discuss your specific needs, please feel free to let us know.


What happens if I cannot remove my lamp posts frog bracket?

Occasionally we find that frog brackets have almost welded themselves to the lamp posts over time and it's neither practical or possible to actually remove them. There are several routes forward such as attaching a replacement lantern to an existing frog bracket or by making a custom plate which enables the frog bracket to be connected to the lantern base.  If your circumstances are a little more intricate please feel free to discuss details over the telephone.
