Plumbing Pipe Insulator Wall Light. This wall lamp is made from galvanised water pipe with cast fittings. The pipe is connected to the insulator using a custom ELG plastic washer. The Chinese made glass insulators were designed for the high voltage power lines that cross the Russian Federation from power stations to sub stations.
This is a high tension cable insulator normally used on very tall power grid towers. This insulator design was originally made in Soviet Union by the LVIV INSULATOR PLANT started in 1965 and later became the LVIV INSULATOR COMPANY in Lviv, Ukraine in 2002. These insulators weigh in at around 1 kilo so they are expensive to ship and can be supplied with a chain mount in addition to a top hook for ceiling mount. Due to the fact that these insulators are still in manufacture they are able to be sourced with some confidence from suppliers in China.
