The Rusty Square 70 Post Light is an ingeniously designed light from SLV, which uses a special kind of ‘weathering steel’ in its construction to master the art of rusting without rusting. This steel (cast FeCSi-steel) forms a natural oxidised layer like many outdoor-suited metals, and unlike other steels this layer is able to arrest the process of atmospheric corrosion and regenerate whenever necessary to protect the core material from degradation.
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 light fitting. Should you decide to order these lights in plural, you can expect unique variations in surface finish with every unit.
Adding character in abundance to many outdoor spaces, the Rusty Square 70 Post Light makes a delightful addition to any traditional garden. Once installed, you’ll feel this light had always been there; it brings with it a sense of history, and will colour your garden with a feeling of lived-in homeliness. This is a great fitting for lining pathways, or driveways, and can be used creatively to highlight features in a garden.
Complementing the controlled rusty exterior for robustness is an opal polycarbonate light diffuser. This is tough and durable, yet gentle on the soft spread of light it emits. The diffuser does a good job in dispersing light and reducing the direct glare of the lamp. An overall IP55 rating gives evidence of the dust and weatherproofing on offer in the Rusty Square 70 Post Light. A broad choice of other lights in the SLV Rusty range is available from Lyco.
Please note: the Rusty Square 70 Post Light is a very heavy item (20.5 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
The Rusty Square 70 Post Light is a Class 2 double-insulated fitting that requires no connection to electrical earth during installation. This makes it suitable for older properties where no earthed electrical circuit is present.
The Rusty Square 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.
