The Rusty Cone 40 Post Light is a brilliantly conceived garden light fitting from innovative designers, SLV. Though its rusty metal finish may give rise to question, this light is manufactured from a special kind of ‘weathering steel’ that rusts in a defensive way rather than flaking and crumbling. Like other suitable outdoor metals, a protective oxidised layer is formed by the cast FeCSi-steel used here, which eventually arrests the rusting process.
Because rusting is a natural process, the type and colour of the outer oxidation layer can, depending on location and influence of weather, develop differently. This process enhances the uniqueness of each lamp. Should you decide to order two or more of these lights, you can expect variations in surface finish with every unit.
In addition to its hardy rusted steel casing, the Rusty Cone 40 Post Light also features a durable opal polycarbonate diffuser, which does a great job in softening and dispersing light and reducing the glare of the lamp. An IP54 rating provides evidence of the overall dust and weather proofing in this decoratively decayed light fitting – it is completely resistant to downpours of rain.
The Rusty Cone 40 Post is a great choice of light for lining paths, or driveways, or simply for creating an attractive spread of light on patios or near garden features. A whole host of other lights in the same Rusty range is available from Lyco, each imbued with a similar warmth and charm.
Please note: the Rusty Cone 40 Post Light is a heavy item (12.2 kg) that may require a 2-man lift. Should you change your mind and wish to return the product this would need to be by courier and would be at your own cost.
Class II Double Insulated
Since the Rusty Cone 40 Post Light is a Class 2 double-insulated fitting it requires no extra level of insulation and can be used in older properties without an earthed electrical circuit.
The Rusty Cone 40 Post Light accommodates a maximum 48 x 135mm 11W Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) with an E27 Edison Screw cap (available separately). An equivalent LED lamp may also be used (typically around 6W) for even greater energy-efficiency.
The dimensions of the Rusty Cone 40 Post Light are:
- Height: 400mm
- Diameter: 200mm
