Solid aluminum water proof light globe cage and glass cover component is specially manufactured to enable the manufacture of damp area or outdoor light fittings.
This component can be used together with our complete range of light hardware for industrial DIY plumbing pipe type lighting. There are three parts to the fitting that come un-assembled. There is a socket mount top component in cast aluminum. This component is threaded both inside and outside. The inside thread accepts the threaded glass containment piece and the outside thread accepts the solid cast aluminum cage. A hole at the top of the socket mount is 1 1/2″ in diameter and it is made specifically to secure using our shade ring system. We can include a threaded barrel with two threaded shade rings. This barrel attaches via a standard UNO thread on an E26 socket.
Also available are shade ring attached brass or steel shades that can be fixed by including in the assembly between pipe fitting and globe cage top.
To include this component in a light fitting design can take a little bit of planning but we have a suggested method that requires a 1 1/4″ to 1/2″ plumbing pipe coupler. These are readily available and seen in the assembly diagram they allow the whole component including socket to be bolted securely to pipe fittings. We use a brass all thread to secure the socket up to a NPT half inch pipe hex nipple.
The E26 sockets we supply for use with plumbing pipe are made in solid brass as heavy duty so they are appropriate for hard fixing to pipe. Also we include an earth tab so that your entire fitting can include a ground wire to the J-Box. At the J_Box we also supply a range of cast pipe fitting flanges. These are made specifically to attach to a standard J-Box.
These light fittings are suited to most regular globe size but recommended ST64 shaped globes are listed below.
