Light Fixtures. Saturday , April 14th , 2018 - 10:59:55 AM
Keep in mind that reclaimed does not necessarily translate into antique. True antiques are at least 100 years old and the term reclaimed simply means it was found or salvaged from elsewhere and is being offered for reuse. You may find reclaimed lights from offices and retailers that have gone out of business in the last couple of years translating into a relatively new light.
For example a halogen bulb should always be housed in an enclosed lighting fixture to avoid the dangerous consequences of a burst halogen bulb. The fixture has to be evaluated on various other parameters like what type of task it is chosen for what is the kind of light distribution can be expected from it(given its shades shape color etc.) how does it effect the efficiency of the bulb and what kind of color distribution does it render. Hence choosing a lighting fixture purely on aesthetic criteria is not a judicious decision.
Where can I Find a Reclaimed Light Fixture? When looking for a reclaimed light fixture youll obviously want to steer clear of retailers of new items. Instead check out flea markets secondhand stores thrift stores antique stores and antique malls. In some instances you may even find reclaimed or used lights at garage sales estate sales and so forth. There are also several online locations that can be highly beneficial when looking for reclaimed or used fixtures.
