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.

Choose the glass shade that fits our lamps
Our glass globes and shades are the perfect match for zangra's porcelain, bakelite and brass lamp collections. The shades are available as spare parts, allowing you to extend the life of your lamp if a globe needs replacement.
Due to the manufacturing process, the glass shades may exhibit parting lines.

Glass: a sustainable and recyclable material

At zangra, we believe that glass should be re-inserted into our daily lives to replace plastic. Glass plays an essential role in preserving our environment. Its responsible use and sustainable life cycle make it a valuable ally in the fight to protect the ecology. One of the most commendable features of glass is its ability to be recycled almost indefinitely. Unlike other materials that lose their properties during recycling, glass can be melted and remoulded several times without altering its quality. This reduces demand for natural resources, saves energy and minimises waste.

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.

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.

Do not use an electrical screwdriver
Do not use electrical screwdrivers when installing bakelite items. We recommend to first drill a hole in the wall, fit the right plugs inside and use a manual screwdriver to fix the screws in place. Be especially careful during the final tightening of the screws.
