Crafted from elegant natural copper, this light has a traditional look and feel and will weather over time to create a charming natural effect that blends in with various outdoor surroundings. This organic effect on the natural copper happens because it reacts with atmospheric oxygen, which means a ‘Verdigris’ effect may be present after longer periods of time. This oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of the natural copper, creating a traditional, decorative appearance. If a pristine, shiny copper finish is preferred, a lacquer can easily be applied to prevent the natural copper process such Simoniz Clear Lacquer.
The ‘Starlight’ hanging down light can be used with an MR16 LED bulb which reduces running and maintenance costs due to its long lifespan and low wattage. Should the LED MR16 ever need to be replaced, this can be done simply by unscrewing the one screw at the top of the cylindrical body to remove then replace the bulb. Certain lighting design features make landscape lighting installation easier; in the case of this hanging garden light, 5m of waterproof 2 core cable is supplied, meaning less cable joins and more choice on the position of the light fitting. The fixed hanging ring at the top of the light can be used with a length of chain if desired.
