To create artificial lighting apply lamps of various types and different functional purposes. With the help of lamps you can give the interior of the room a peculiar style and appearance.
The main lighting device in any room is one that is located on the ceiling. Depending on the size of the room, this luminaire can be single (central) or enter a group, consist of one or more lamps. Such material as metal is considered to be the most ancient and reliable material for manufacturing such devices.
Advantages of Metal pendant lights
• Durability compared to chandeliers made of glass and crystal. This is very important for appliances located in public places. It is not superfluous to install metal pendant lights in apartments where children live: an upturned toy can split a glass ceiling or shake a fabric shade into sharp shards.
• Stylish solution. Modern lighting devices are made for various designs: high-tech, modern, minimalism, classic, medieval, ethnic style, etc.
• Minimal care: periodic wiping with dust with a dry rag and everything. These are very easily cleaned versions of lighting fixtures.
• Wide assortment and at cost. Prices for modern metal pendant lights depend on their type, size, complexity of construction, material of manufacture – steel, copper, aluminum, bronze, brass, etc.
Basis and methods of manufacture
Stamped steel is most often found in the mass production of lighting fixtures. Inexpensive conveyor method are mainly produced ceiling lamps modern and high-tech chandelier models with polished joints, as they have a simple design and there is no ornate, small decor elements. The surface is ideal for smoothness and gloss. For anti-corrosion protection apply staining, electroplating and spraying. Galvanic coating is more effective and stronger than painting. After the electrostatic treatment, the details acquire the shine and persistent color of bronze, chromium, nickel or gold. The warranty period for electroplating is up to 10 years. Natural gold, silver or bronze sputtering refers to an elite way of processing steel parts.
Aluminum reflects light well, is lighter than steel, and is resistant to deformation and corrosion. Cast aluminum ceiling lamps are different models – from point devices on LED-lamps to “tablets” and stylizations for street lights. Casting under pressure helps to achieve the strength of both massive and thin parts of the device.
Brass, copper and other noble metals are rarely used in production. These are custom models with high cost. So, for designer lamps ceiling bronze is cast in special forms, it is chased and patinated for various shades. As a coating for brass can be used silvering or chrome, giving an exquisite shine. A magnificent alternative to casting is forging in a hot way. As a result of the smith’s inspired work, unique and very reliable products of complex shape are born. Cold forging is cheaper due to the mass production with the use of stencils and machine tools. It is used for devices with a relatively simple design.
