The Rusty Cone Pedestal is superbly conceived by SLV, with a crossed-cage style that seems to have travelled from a bygone age, but has in fact come from one of Europe’s premier lighting designers. This stunning garden light is constructed with a special weathering steel (cast FeCSi-steel) that forms a tight protective layer of iron oxide, or rust, to prevent any further atmospheric corrosion. Unlike ordinary steels, the rust does not flake or crumble, so the rusting process is eventually arrested, and only regenerates if the surface is damaged.
Since 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 individuality of each lamp. Should you decide to order several of these lights, you can expect variations in surface finish with every unit.
With its IP54 rating, the Rusty Cone Pedestal provides evidence of impressive dust-proofing and resistance to rain. You can place this fitting anywhere in a garden without fear or trepidation, though it is particularly well-suited to installation on walls, columns, or steps, often for marking the perimeters of an entrance to a path or driveway.
Masking the lamp of the SLV Rusty Cone Pedestal is an opal polycarbonate diffuser, which is highly resistant to breakage. The diffuser does a superb job in softening and dispersing the light, and simultaneously cuts out the glare of the lamp.
The SLV Rusty Cone Pedestal is a Class 1 fitting that requires a connection to electrical earth during installation.
Please note: the SLV Rusty Cone Pedestal is a heavy item (approx. 7kg) 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.
The SLV Rusty Cone Pedestal 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 SLV Rusty Cone Pedestal are:
- Height: 240mm
