ZANGRA SAYS TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

Retro enamelled pendant light Alexander

This industrial factory lamp by zangra has been named Alexander.
Alexander has a 3 metre long textile cable, which makes it ideal for hanging in a room with a high ceiling. The fabric cable can of course be made shorter for rooms with lower ceilings. This retro pendant light is availabler either with a black or white porcelain socket and a matching ceiling rose. The enamel bowl is available in various colours. Alexander is not suitable for outdoor use.
This lamp is fitted with an E27 socket, so you will have to use an E27 light bulb.


What does E27 mean?

E27 stands for the type of the fitting of a lamp. E27 stands for a 27 mm diameter thread. It's also known as the 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.
Check out here the complete collection of E27 light bulbs by zangra.

What actually is enamel?

Enamel is a protective layer of molten glass applied to metal objects to protect them. Enamel is smooth, hard, very hygienic, non-flammable, durable and has a high colour-fastness. The enamel layer protects the metal from corrosion. The enamel layer is applied to the metal by hand. Small superficial irregularities and unfinished edges are a normal consequence of this. Enamel products are sold in different colours. Slight colour differences may occur in a single series. Since the production is largely done manually, these small colour deviations cannot be ruled out. The reason we all are so fond of enamel is very simple. This material is incredibly durable, easy to clean and reminds us of our grandmother's era!
 

Are enamel products environmentally friendly?

  • Enamel is a good alternative to plastic
  • Enamel is a durable material: enamel is a very strong material that does not break, remains shiny and is colour-fast. If you drop or hit it, it may flake off, but it will never break
  • No chemicals are used in its production
  • Enamel products can last for thousands of years without breaking down

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.

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.
