    [ETF] - Tiberius is neither Brass or Gold...Its unique


    Electro Tiberius Flat (ETF) is a premium, zero gloss/flat powder-coated finish designed to replicate precious metals without the expense associated with. We've never called Tiberius "Brass" nor "Gold" as the colour is better characterised as a "Bronze/Green Patina" however that's exactly what customers call it. Our Tiberius Flat finish looks amazing in the right surrounds (Got Monument? Excellent Choice!) however Tiberius will simply not match your kitchen taps, brass handles, or anything you've already got installed due to its unique colour mixture. With a 25 year guarantee from Dulux, Tiberius Flat (and all Electros!) are designed to last decades to the point it'll probably become its own vintage with time.

    1. Buy Tiberius Flat to contrast and compliment Colorbond® Monument
    2. If you've got too much Black/Darker Colours in the area - Tiberius will make it "pop"
    3. Don't buy Tiberius if you want to match something else

    Colour Temperature (Kelvin)

    2700K - Incandescent Yellow / Intimate, Cozy, Personal

    2700K refers to the colour spectrum of light that we commonly associate with candle light, home, sunset, and the soft dancing of flames of the fireplace. Most Australians will have grown up under the warmth and homely atmosphere we can associate with incandescent lighting.

    For the Consumer: This is the light that you are probably most familiar with seeing around the home. The warm glow is reminiscent of the sunset or a flame. Common applications area: Bedrooms & Living Rooms

    For the Designer: Those designing for restaurant & hotels are encouraged to use warm lighting as for the most part, restaurants and hoteliers want to create an inviting and intimate environment. This is why designers often choose warmer light sources with dimmers. Take notice that you can always adjust the lighting throughout the evening to encourage customers to take the time to relax.

    4000K - Cool White / Clinical, Warehousing, Stadiums

    4000K - When you require precision, clarity, and a clean environment. When you need precision and the ability to see your subject clearly, cool white lighting is ideal. These color temperatures are going to be 4000K or higher for specialist applications.

    For the Consumer / Mechanic: If you are using your garage as a work space, and are tired of trying to find that 13mm socket that's fell in the entire for n'th time today, you will want to use clean crisp lighting. This will bring clarity to any project you are working on and create the safest working environment.

    For the Designer: Compared to a clothing retail (3500K) store, supermarkets typically opt for a slightly higher color temperature. This creates a better environment for examining foods and also makes the colours pop to makemarketing packaging more appealing.

    Note for the Designers: We do NOT recommend colour temperatures over 3500K for retail environments as a these light sources are more commonly "too blue" and can make customers look unhealthy. This leads them to leave the store without making a purchase.. and looking for sunglasses. 4000K~5000K has specialist lighting applications, namely medical, warehousing, and sports stadiums. If you require a lighting specification to suit, contact us!

    Our "designed for purpose" LED lighting uses a integrated LED fitting courtesy of the Research & Design Efforts of Barn Light USA & CREE Lighting USA. We have engineered a 48V Dimmable Driver, Heatsink, and LMH020 LED Module to provide an unparalleled lighting solution to a variety of environments. Choose from a range of 850Lumen through to 3000Lumen modules and four colour temperatures each.

    All fittings are provided with a purposely designed enclosure for wall mounting, flexible, and fixed stem installations. The installation method to install these units is the same as our standard fittings.

    Input Voltage is [email protected] to the driver, Dedicated dimming wires, Output Voltage is 48V. LED draw varies, please refer to our Fully Integrated LED Modules page for further information.

    Colour Temperature (Kelvin)

    2700K - Incandescent Yellow / Intimate, Cozy, Personal

    2700K refers to the colour spectrum of light that we commonly associate with candle light, home, sunset, and the soft dancing of flames of the fireplace. Most Australians will have grown up under the warmth and homely atmosphere we can associate with incandescent lighting. The standard cheap A60 bulb is what we call the standard "pear" bulb that shaped our childhoods. 

    For the Consumer: This is the light that you are probably most familiar with seeing around the home. The warm glow is reminiscent of the sunset or a flame. Common applications area: Bedrooms & Living Rooms

    For the Designer: Those designing for restaurant & hotels are encouraged to use warm lighting as for the most part, restaurants and hoteliers want to create an inviting and intimate environment. This is why designers often choose warmer light sources with dimmers. Take notice that you can always adjust the lighting throughout the evening to encourage customers to take the time to relax and open your wine-list and their chequebook.

    3000K - Warm White

    3000K - For the environments that entail completing tasks with a degree of clarity. Given the small bump up from 2700K Incandescent light, 3000K is still within the same realm of relaxation and ambience lighting.

    For the Consumer: A bathroom is still a place in your home where you require want warm light levels, but slightly higher so that you can see where that errant whisker or eyebrow that needs removal (maybe both!) and see a brighter, more youthful reflection in the mirror. You won't miss lipstick smeared teeth or collars!

    For the Designer: Kitchens are usually a social place that becomes a room to elicit your culinary talents. 3000K will assist in presenting an accurate CRI (Colour Rendering Index; the way we see colour) that shows colour accurately. This will ensure that the Chicken is cooked all the way through (by way of pink being highly visible) or if the Egg white needs a few more seconds. This will let you see the true colour of the food presented to you.

    3500K - Neutral White

    3500K - Circadian lighting theory will tell you that the brain is most alert in the middle of the day when light levels move into the pure white areas of the spectrum. We use this colour temperature to our advantage (to the detriment of our sleeping patterns) where people need to focus and remain alert. Neutral tones (small yellow mix) tends to reduce the stress of a common work day.

    For the Consumer: Keeping your home office or the laundry in this colour temperature will ensure that the tasks will always be at the forefront of your mind* (conditions apply). 3500K will keep employees alert yet relaxed, all without a coffee maker!

    For the Designer: Retail stores need to create an inviting environment on the warm side of the scale, this allows your customers to see the true qualities of your products such as clothing.

    4000K - Cool White

    4000K - When you require precision, clarity, and a clean environment. When you need precision and the ability to see your subject clearly, cool white lighting is ideal. These color temperatures are going to be 4000K or higher for specialist applications.

    For the Consumer / Mechanic: If you are using your garage as a work space, and are tired of trying to find that 13mm socket that's fell in the entire for n'th time today, you will want to use clean crisp lighting. This will bring clarity to any project you are working on and create the safest working environment.

    For the Designer: Compared to a clothing retail (3500K) store, supermarkets typically opt for a slightly higher color temperature. This creates a better environment for examining foods and also makes the colours pop to make marketing packaging more appealing.

Modern or Vintage?

You’d be surprised to learn – We’re not always right. Released as a vintage pendant, The Hobart was immediately part of the “family group conversation” after release – family informed me that they consider the Hobart to decidedly  modern. You decide?

Due to its simple slant, the Hobart is ideal for the modern kitchen replacing your ugly kitchen ceiling lights has never been easier. The addition of a variety of cord styles gives you the ability to mix the old with the new without taking sacrificing on quality. Blend French Braided Cotton Twist for the vintage as an example.

The Hobart looks familiar…

You’ve seen it everywhere, yet nowhere these days. It looks like a billiard table light? – Correct. It looks like a kitchen island pendant? – Correct. It looks vintage, yet modern enough to compliment any modern kitchen aesthetic. The Hobart has a curious history because its not truly ours. If you are looking for a shallow bowl light to create a well lit (and dispersed!) kitchen island, but don’t want to see a glaring bulb, The Hobart stem pendant is the best of both worlds.

The Hobart Stem Pendant is quite the stunner, a light that will create that homely, earthly, “well-lit kitchen” effect that your space has been missing. Our featured simple “hard neck banding” that combined with the sleek and almost timeless styling that takes up far less room than traditional rectangular pendant lights. If you’ve ever decided that you wanted something simple, yet compelling – The Hobart leaves out  all of the unattractive parts you see in other lighting models and creates a seamless visual effect from all angles!

The History of Barn Light’s Hobart

Why the Hobart? It was once named as “The Classic”, admittedly classically designed however not very descriptive. Customers made it all to easy to call it the “The Asian Hat”, “The Rice Paddy” – or – “The Other Witches’ Hat” (that’s the Astro) because that’s what they’d call it over the phone – Not exactly culturally insensitive, however very descriptive. After discussing the re-release of this Shade design, we settled on “Hobart”, yet we wanted to have a *reason* to call the Hobart, the Hobart.

The Hobart Shade was once called “The Regatta” – aka – The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race by our Metalspinners as the shade replicates the shade sails from a time that this race was probably still won in wooden ships. “The Regatta” shade mold is officially older than every employee that works here at Barn Light.
