Custom Outdoor Column Mounted Fixtures Complete

New Haven, Ct – Grand Light has recreated two column mounted outdoor lighting fixtures for an upscale residence in Pittsburgh, PA.

The replicated components for these outdoor fixtures were fabricated using steel which was brass riveted together, an aluminum top spinning, and original cast bases served as the foundation for the new components.

Three weep holes were put in place at the inside of the bases. Also they where wired to use one 100 watt A lamp porcelain light socket. Historic Iron free antique glass was used, which in turn was frosted for a more mystic look.The top spinning is removable in order to allow to replace glass should it become damaged, and a hinged door with a latch was fabricated to easy access to the lamp.thorneforblog2.jpg
