The Factorylux collection of industrial wall lights encompasses a huge choice of products in a range of styles, sizes, colours and finishes. Here’s our guide to choosing industrial-style wall lights. Whichever fitting you choose, all the Factorylux wall lights are tested and certified to BS EN 60598 and dispatched for safe and simple installation with clear instructions, wiring diagrams and all the necessary fixtures and fittings.
Maria Wall Lights
The Factorylux Maria Wall lights are hand built in the UK at our integrated production HQ in West Yorkshire. There are a range of styles from the small Maria Sconce with a B15/SBC lamp holder to the large Maria Banjo with a 190mm shade and E27/ES lamp holder. The components for the fittings are machined in the UK from solid brass, and then finished in either vintage brass, antique bronze or silver nickel plate.
The fittings can be used without a shade or there are UK-made shades in six genuine vitreous enamel colours and six metallics. The centrifuge galvanised steel and stainless steel shades have a particularly strong industrial/functional aesthetic.
The collection of Maria Wall Lights is extremely versatile. The range of colours and finishes means there are fittings compatible with a wide range of ‘looks’ and surface materials; and there are styles and sizes suitable for ambient, task, accent and mood lighting in a range of spaces.
Ceramic Industrial Wall Lights
The ceramic wall lights are available in three varieties: straight, angled and right-angled. All three are suitable for wall mounting. There’s enough room in the base of the light fittings for making electrical connections for recessed wiring; and knockouts for surface wiring, whether in conduit or exposed. The ceramic lights have a simple ‘clean’ minimalist aesthetic.
The ceramic light fittings look good against a range of surfaces and are particularly popular in the ‘outside zones’ of bathrooms – those areas which do not require IP rated fittings. More information about bathroom lighting is here together with a diagram which shows the restricted areas.
Bakelite Industrial Wall Lights
The Bakelite lights come in two different designs – angled and straight, both suitable for wall mounting. The use of Bakelite gives the fittings a vintage aesthetic – Bakelite was one of the first synthetic plastics. Both have space in the base of the fitting for making electric connections if the wiring is concealed, and knockouts in the base for surface wiring, whether in conduit or mounted directly to the surface.
IP Rated or Bathroom Industrial Wall Lights
The Factorylux IP rated industrial wall lights are suitable for use in bathrooms. To ensure the safety of any installation, electrical work in bathrooms should be undertaken by an approved contractor.
The ceramic IP rated wall lights have an off-white ceramic base and clear glass cover with rubber seal. There are two design options – straight or angled, both of which come with a brass gland to ensure water cannot get into the fitting.
The industrial lantern and the oval bulkhead light are made from die cast aluminium. The fittings have 20mm threaded entry points which makes them particular suitable for conduit installations. For installation with exposed wiring, the Factorylux range includes a cable outlet rated to IP 54.
