Based on early industrial lighting, the Old Dixie finds a new use for this classic look. Topping a rustic guard with an iconic warehouse shade, the Old Dixie is mountable to post and poles. This meets your practical exterior lighting needs, while heightening the aesthetics of these areas. Patios, docks, and other outdoor locations can now feel included in the rest of your décor, carrying your interior styles to exterior spaces.
While our 28cm & 33cm (11″/13″) Shades are American Made (Put your preference in the order comments) – We powdercoat or wetspray our these shades domestically to suit Australian conditions, right here in Melbourne. Developed to be rugged enough to be installed at the local watering hole, our Old Dixie is the perfect combination for those purchasing our most popular family of warehouse shades, our Old Dixie perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
At Barn Light we keep quality and durability values in mind whenever we introduce a new fixture. The Old Dixie Guard Post Mount unites the longevity of die-cast aluminium with industrial aesthetics, the cascading “steps” of the Old Dixie can evoke a natural nautical aesthetic. The light source is shielded by heavy-duty die-cast aluminium guard (TGG = Thick Cast Guard) and thick glass, protecting while illuminating your space. Create a magnificent dock light environment by the sea or inner suburbia for those who love the water. Your exterior lighting designs and options are limitless with any of our Dock Lights, as our lighting is modular! The Old Dixie can illuminate your space with a choice of gooseneck, stem, pendant, sconce, and now post-mounted Old Dixie.
Create a design further stand out by choosing a vibrant wetspray finish or choose from our standard range of Dulux powdercoat colours. Unlike cheap imitation, we design our lighting for outdoor use first, die-cast aluminium rather than cheap steel, O-Ring Gaskets, integrated set screws (Heavy Duty) to disable access to the bulb and glass where necessary. Our guards all have the capability of being easily threaded into the base for easy access to the glass and bulb where necessary. We prefer the prismatic glass if using ugly CFL bulbs, clear glass will provide an interesting focal point when using standard incandescent like Carbon Filaments bulbs.
