The Rusty Cone 70 Post Light is a brilliantly designed outdoor light fitting that uses a real rusted finish as its main attraction. This is achieved by its special construction from a ‘weathering steel’ (cast FeCSi-steel), which like many good outdoor metals forms an efficient protective oxidised layer to halt any further rusting. Other steels tend to flake and crumble as they rust, which has the opposite effect of accelerating atmospheric corrosion.
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 natural rust finish, the Rusty Cone 70 Post Light uses a hard-wearing opal polycarbonate diffuser, which is difficult to break or shatter. This durable diffuser does a great job in softening and dispersing light, and cuts out the direct glare of the lamp. An IP54 Ingress Protection rating signifies robust dust-proofing in this fitting as well as complete resistance to rain.
Like all bollards, or post lights, the Rusty Cone 70 Post Light is great for lining garden paths, or marking the perimeters of a path or drive, and its colour is particularly complementary to many types of decorative grass or shrub. The 700mm height of the fitting ensures its visibility in most applications.
Please note: the Rusty Cone 70 Post Light is a very heavy item (18.8 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 70 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 70 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 70 Post Light are:
- Height: 700mm
- Diameter: 200mm
