Large Braced Brass Plumbing Pipe Billiard table light. This light fitting is perfect to light up a regular or full size billiard table (pool table or snooker table). Alternatively install over a large dining table, bar or kitchen bench.
Solid Brass lamp holders are attached to this fitting via special (one inch) 25mm diameter solid brass plumbing pipe hardware components to suit the shades selected. Solid brass bracing rods are specially formed by hand to attach to plumbing pipe fittings to provide structural rigidity and a design aesthetic.
This Large Braced Brass Plumbing Pipe Billiard table light features 3 large steel shades that are 360 mm baked enamel steel. There are a few other shades that will attach to this light fitting so we offer a “no shades” option when ordering also. Choose from our larger non gallery type shades and add 3 as a separate cart item if different shades are required.
Industrial plumbing pipe design based on original farm made fittings from the early 1900’s. Secures to the ceiling via solid brass pipe and cast brass flanges which are also the wiring points.
This particular light is best suited to a room with at least 10 foot (3.0M) ceiling height or more. See gallery image. The design requires a drop of at least 950mm from ceiling to the bottom of the shade. We recommend to hang this light around 32 inches above the table surface for best lighting for pool, snooker or billiards. Shaded metal shades are a better choice over game tables to avoid player eye glare.
This light fitting weighs around 20 kgs and so a secure mount will be required in the ceiling cavity.
Due to the nature of brass and the requirement to thread these pipe components there will be some tool marks that remain when built and assembled. We clean these tool marks to some degree but there is not a high polish finish available with plumbing pipe components. Casting surfaces remain on the joint sections. This finish is left to enhance the industrial nature of the overall design concept.
Any E27 bulb can be used including LEDs. With large shade and a brightest LED in vintage look we recommend the 11 watt C100.
