Nautical-inspired bakelite lamp

A re-edition of a historic model, this timeless lamp is just as at home in a bathroom as it is in a utility room, garage or terrace.
This European-made lamp has a bakelite base and ribbed glass.
The lamp has an IP54 rating, protecting it from dust and water.
This lamp has an E27 socket and must be fitted with an E27 bulb.

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.

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 IP54 mean?

IP54 means that this lamp is protected against:
5 : dust.
4 : water splashes from all directions.
Indoor: rated for installation in bathroom zones 2 and 3.
Outdoor: suitable for outdoor use if correctly installed in zone 3 and 4 (see zone diagrams in the gallery).
See our damp-rated lights for bathroom section for more information.

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.

Are the screws included?
No screws are supplied, as the type of screw depends on the material of the wall or ceiling (concrete, brick, plasterboard, wood).
You need a different type of screws depending on each material.

Technical information
The connection is made on the side of the fixture.
