What is bakelite?

Functional and aesthetic, bakelite is the ideal material for electrical engineering.
Developed at the beginning of the 20th century by the Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland - from whom the term derives its name - bakelite is known for its heat-resistant properties, as well as its stability and high electrical insulation. Until the 1960s, bakelite participated in the elaboration and development of many technical innovations - such as the telephone and radio. For financial reasons, however, bakelite was gradually replaced by thermoplastic, which was less dense but also of a less comparable quality.
Today, in order to offer a quality alternative to thermoplastics, some factories located on the European continent are relaunching the production of bakelite, using traditional moulds and tools.

Is the light bulb included?

The light bulb is not included when you buy this light. You will find here the whole selection of LED, incandescent, stick and halogen light bulbs. Take into account that each light needs a specific type of light bulb. You will find the kind of light bulb that it requires under the "Technical Description" tab.

What does E27 mean?

E27 stands for the type of the fitting of a lamp. E27 stands for a 27 mm diameter thread. "E" stands for Edison thread. So you always have to put an E27 light bulb in a fixture with an E27 fitting. E27 is the standard in England and most European countries.
The early light bulbs (remember them?) had a similar screw thread.
Be careful though, because there are also countries where E26 bulbs are the norm (for example in the United States).
If you would like to know which standard applies in your country, check out this page.

What does the IP value mean on a light fitting?

All light fittings are classified according to their IP value. These IP values (International Protection or Ingress Protection) indicate the degree of protection of the light fitting against dust and moisture. The IP value consists of two digits: the first digit indicates the level of protection against dust; the second, the level of protection against moisture. The higher the IP value, the higher the protection. Check this diagram to see the different existing IP values.
 

What does the IP20 value mean on this light fitting?

IP20 means that the light fitting:
2: is protected against the intrusion of solid particles with a dimension greater than 12.5 millimetres.
0: has no protection against water penetration. This light fitting can be installed indoors, but not in wet areas.
It is not recommended to install this light fitting outdoors. A device with an IP20 value is not protected against dust or moisture. A light fitting marked IP20 may have holes to prevent overheating. However, the lamp is protected against contact with objects larger than 12.5 mm, such as a hand or finger.
This model is suitable for indoor use, but not outdoors.

At what height to hang a pendant lamp?

1. Above a dining table
Above a dining table, lower the pendant lamp so that it is up to 60 to 70 cm above the table. This means you won’t be blinded when you eat and won’t hit your head when you get up. The height indicated corresponds to the distance between the top of the table and the lowest part of the suspension light. The light should end up approximately at your eye level when you are standing, and you’ll see the underside of the light when you are sitting. You need to ensure that the light diffused by the pendant lamp illuminates the entire table.
2. Above a coffee table
A pendant lamp placed above a coffee table should be placed higher than those installed above a dining table so that you do not hit your head.
3. In the middle of a room
You should leave about 210 cm between the floor and the lowest part of the pendant lamp so that tall people do not hit their heads. If it is hung above a piece of furniture or in a corner, it can go down lower.
4. Above the kitchen worktop
Hand the light at least 180 cm from the floor or between 75 and 85 cm from your worktop or countertop. Don't hang your suspension too high, so you don't have to look at the light all the time, but it shouldn’t be too low either as it might not illuminate the whole worktop.
5. On each side of a mirror in the bathroom
If you want to hang two pendant lamps on each side of a mirror, they are best positioned according to the average eye height of your family members. It is also recommended that the two suspension lights are not more than 70 cm apart so that the face is sufficiently illuminated.

How should I install several pendant lights?
There are several ways to install pendant lamps. You can choose to install different kinds of lamps or several identical lamps. The fabric cables can be wired to a single electrical point or to several independent electrical points. If there is only one electrical point on the ceiling, but you still want to hang several pendant lamps, make sure you choose the right ceiling rose. For example, if you want to wire five lamps to one electrical point, choose a ceiling rose with at least five holes (see here), or a rose with a large opening that can accommodate several fabric cables.
You can find the complete collection of zangra ceiling roses here.
Wherever you want your pendant light to hang, you need to fix an insulator to the ceiling. An insulator is a kind of button with which you attach your cable to the ceiling. You can find several types of insulators on our page dedicated to Lighting Accessories.
