The Wesco Industrial Chain Hung Pendant. A Black Deep Bowl Lighting Fixture with black Chain mounting. This pendant light looks great in a variety of lighting settings, from your living room to bathroom!
The Wesco Industrial Chain Hung Pendant builds upon the character of traditional deep bowl pendant lights – Designed to provide a deep and directed light upon counters back in the 1900’s, Our Wesco has evolved to be a popular design application, highlighting certain points of interests around retail stores. You’ll find both the Wesco Deep Bowl Shades among top fashion stores providing a ‘call-to-purchase’ whatever lays beneath these deep bowl warehouse shades.
The Wesco Chain Hung Pendant features a minimalist deep bowl design that doesn’t sacrifice on glam. Featuring a contemporary/industrial inspired light offers a long lasting rustic chic which will blend effortlessly into homes and offices built in all styles from country style farmhouses to ultra modern apartments. High quality materials are chosen exclusively by our engineers for their superior hallmarks — such as strength, durability, as well, being Australian Made never hurt anyone. We’ve combined our trademark straight neck that mellows into a well rounded bell shaped dome. There isn’t much more to take away from this warehouse lighting design!
The 40cm Wesco Chain Hung Pendant is a funky, raw industrial lamp with excellent outdoor weathering. Surprise your colleagues or customers with this functional statement light which can be placed anywhere and provide sufficient illumination for reading, cooking, or simply creating your space. If your area needs prominence but also walk-through space, the use of our quick-links provides an instant height change at the heat of the moment, or just before the party gets started!
Our 25cm Wesco is best described as “Task Lighting” – The deep bowl is going to push all the light down its deep neck onto your desk, workspace, or over that tabletop that otherwise misses out. If you could imagine the style of lamps used to highlight drawing boards back in the 1900’s, you’d likely see smaller version of our Wesco highlighting the plans of buildings we still walk through today.
This pendant has an outdoor rated chain suspension and brings timeless charm to your home with its deep-bowl shape. The Wesco is great for indoor use and excellent for outdoor usage, rated IP44 (IP55 with Atomic Unit!) which means it’s safe for water or rain exposure too! With the lamp holder recessed deep within the neck of the Wesco, it ensures you can brighten up any intimate space with mellowed lighting.
Our Wesco Chain Hung Pendants are comprised of classic warehouse style with a deep-bowl lighting dispersal. As an alternative, our 43cm Old Dixie Chain Hung Pendant is designed for a “shallow bowl” style, for example areas requiring a more dispersed lighting plan such as Kitchen Islands with short ceilings.
We sell many more 40cm Wesco’s than 25cm strictly due to the massive size different, a majority of our 25cm Wesco’s are sold with Gooseneck Arms (or Straight arms!) – Check out The Wesco Gooseneck Barn Light for ideas on what you can achieve with a small light, in a small space. Don’t have the ability to install a Wesco Chain Hung Pendant over your kitchen sink, The Wesco Stem Pendant with rigid stem pendant is ideal or The Wesco Barn Pendant might be better suited to the task if you’ve got shorter ceilings?
The Ceiling Canopy / Ceiling Rose
We supply our “Stem Canopy” – a 11cm Diameter Die-Casted Ceiling Rose that comes with female loop pre-installed. The ceiling rose is supplied in Black Ace (EBA) Finish, and is designed to take the full weight of the fixture.
We provide a steel Adaptor Bracket with threaded holes located at the left and right of the adaptor bracket. 8-32 x 3/4″ Pan Philips Screws are supplied (roughly M4 x 20mm long) in the same colour as the canopy, ensuring the entire fixture, and fixings appears the same colour on the ceiling.
Yup, everything is then packaged into a brown or white paper bag and marked with your colour, size, installation instructions, and any applicable warnings.
Outdoor Rated Cables
Our Standard Black Cord [SBC] / Standard White Cord [SWC] are designed for outdoor usage.
All other types of cables are designed for internal use only. This may be due to single insulation (French Braided Twist), or Polyester jackets (Black Cloth Cord) that contain non uv-treated cables.
We cut all of our cable off 100m spools. The supplied length of 1m is provided for all cable styles. If you require additional lengths further than 2m long (3.5m TOTAL), we can supply a quotation separately. Cable supplied always has a “little bit of slack” to enable the electrician to complete their installation.
Indoor Rated Canopy
For all of our Chain Hung Pendants, a dry location must be selected for the installation/electrical termination point. This means that water cannot be present in the immediate area at any stage.
We use a outdoor-rated silicon that ensures water cannot enter the electrical assembly (through where the cable enters) through the lighting fixture. It is quite literally “plugged” prior the electrical assembly being completely assembled.
Yes. Your electrical termination must be completed into/using an Outdoor Rated Enclosure (as your electrician to supply) so that water-proofing is completed.
For example; An outdoor alfresco area may have the chain-hung pendant fully exposed to the weather.
The lighting fixture is water-proofed externally, the lighting fixture’s electrical connection point is terminated within either A) Recessed, dry location (i.e. under a roof). or B) within an outdoor-rated conduit box.
The Chain can be “Hooked” wherever desired, with the electrical terminated in either location A or B.
Outdoor Rated Pendants (IP44) and up, can be always placed in full weather conditions so long as the ceiling is “dry”.
All Barn Light Lighting takes a common “E27 / Edison Screw / ES / Screw Bulb” that you’ll find at your local hardware, or grocery store. If you’d prefer to purchase our LED Bulbs, the supplier (VintageLED.com.au) provides a three-year warranty.
Yes – We use a ceramic Edison Screw (E27) Lampholder.
Whats.. Better? Ceramic?!
Our ceramic/porcelain Lampholders are simply designed to take as much heat as possible (Yes, We build better lighting than our competitors) without effecting the mounting / electrical cabling. Our outdoor pendant lighting is based on decades old, reliable, vintage engineering.
Standard Outdoor Barn Lights – 100W
If you select the “default” arrangement which is simply marked as “Edison Screw Lampholder (No Bulbs Supplied)” with Standard Black Cord – You’ll have the ability to install a 100W Bulb.
Atomic Barn Lighting / Indoor Rated Cables – 60W
If you select an Accessory such as “Atomic Cast Guard” or French Braided Twist – When installed with Glass, you’ll be limited as the sealed glass enclosure becomes a literal heat-trap, resulting is a lesser Wattage rating (60W)
You can opt to NOT install the glass at your discretion however Atomic “Fully Integrated LEDs” required the installation of glass at all times.
What you *may* want to know if considering purchasing elsewhere
Our competitors will be supplying you with a thermo-plastic lamp-holder which becomes brittle & cracks over time, with a maximum of 60W being typical (also.. not organic / not recyclable). Need to light up an area? Nope – You’ll now need to install spotlights to find your car in Winter.
Smart Bulbs – When you need a kaleidoscope of colour.
Yes, our lighting is fully compatible however we suggest that you try one bulb in the most furthest away location from your wireless signal. We manufacture with Aluminium, and you’ll likely install your new Barn Lights onto Brick or Concrete walls. Neither of these materials are ideal for wireless signals to penetrate through so tread cautiously.
Yup – We hear you, this is sounding too good to be true for a lighting company.
Frankly (the short answer is “Yes”), we could write a page about this – so we did.. -> Are Barn Lights Dimmable?
Yes – We have been developing our lighting for years and it is ready to integrate with any sensor on the market today. Your electrician, or related professional will work closely with you to determine which solution best suits your needs, but don’t worry: to put it simply, buying a Barn Light is the easy part of your lighting plan.
The types of sensors available on the market today are microwave (movement), lux meters (during dusk-to dawn periods), and PIR Sensors for night (heat sensor). The best solution for you will depend upon your local conditions, thus supplying a motion sensor isn’t under the purview of the lighting products we provide.
For example: If you live in an area with nocturnal life, you wouldn’t want to install a motion sensor in your backyard covering a large amount of area. For similar reasons, you wouldn’t want a heat sensor covering the sunset as stone holds heat for a long period of time. Some video cameras these days now have a “pre-determined scope” or area of control to focus on, ignoring all else such as a driveway, ignoring the surrounds.
If you are wanting to install a light *sometimes* when entertaining, you’ve got a portable, chain hung pendant to solve that problem.
If you are concerned about the fixtures swaying the breeze, our chain hung lights are resistant to light breezes, otherwise we’d recommend our stem pendant lights for windier conditions as a fixed installation.
If you’ve got a ceiling that may have some additional protection required, consider an upgrade to our optional Atomic Cast Guards which increase the IP Rating to IP55 and provide an interesting focal point.
For the Kitchen
A typical 1.8m-2.1m (x 900|1200mm) Island bench should have 2x kitchen island pendants installed equally spaced provide sufficient light during the daytime and evening when using the larger shades, smaller shades 3x. For every 400mm of space, the addition of one extra pendant is preferable. The higher you install your pendants, the greater light dispersal, the less pendants are required. Whilst balance makes sense, its not always easy to visualise online!
Our Chain Pendants would typically be installed over the kitchen island bench rather than over the dining room table.
For the Bathroom
“The smaller, the better” – Sparkie dependant, we insist upon using the cast guard & glass to reduce water exposure and diffuse light more evenly (Atomic Cast Guard drops the bulb to just before the shade rim in most shade models). A unique benefit for these units is the addition of optional Atomic Cast Guards which increase the IP Rating to IP55.
For Workshops – You’ll definitely feel a industrial vibe once installed, and spend more time in the workshop that before!
For Walkways, a shorter pendant drop will provide less momentum for chain hung pendants to swing.
For Garages, a long chain suspended pendant will always look aesthetically pleasing while providing a decent quality light.
