The Rusty Square 40 Post Light uses rust to protect itself from rust. This may sound strange but it is actually quite ingenious. Innovative lighting designers SLV have used a special ‘weathering steel’ (cast FeCSi-steel) in the construction of this rusty range, and unlike most steels this has a particular resistance to atmospheric corrosion. Similarly to other durable outdoor metals, it uses a naturally formed iron oxide layer to inhibit the rusting process and prevent flaking.
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 individuality of each light fitting. Should you decide to order these lights in plural, you can expect unique variations in surface finish with every unit. An IP55 rating provides evidence of protection against dust, rain, and jets of water.
To complement this extra-hardy form of rusted metal, the Rusty Square 40 Post Light uses a durable opal polycarbonate diffuser, which is tough to break or damage yet fulfils its remit perfectly in delivering a softened, even spread of light. This characterful garden luminaire is ideal for lining paths or marking their entrance, and might be used to define the boundaries of a driveway.
Please note: the Rusty Square 40 Post Light is a heavy item (14kg) 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
The Rusty Square 40 Post Light is a Class 2 double-insulated fitting that requires no connection to electrical earth, and can be safely used even in older properties where no earthed mains circuit exists.
A 12-month manufacturer’s warranty comes as standard with the Rusty Square 40 Post Light. All SLV products are required to be installed by an NICEIC registered electrical contractor. Failure to comply with this will result in the guarantee becoming void.
The Rusty Square 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.
