  • STEM STYLE

    Fat Vintage Stems

    Each stem has a 3mm wall thickness, which will absorb any form of draft, high wind, and knocks life presents. You can be assured your new Barn Light will last the test of time. To ensure rigid installation, all stem products come with grub (set) screws to provide durability, integrity and safety of all our stem pendants. Hardware is inclusive with all of our Barn Lights.

    Petite Stem

    Our Petite Stems are manufactured from 20mm extruded aluminium pipe, made from T5 structural aluminium. Each stem has a 3mm wall thickness which will absorb any form of draft, high wind, and knocks life presents. You can be assured your new Barn Light will stand the test of time. The difference between 'Fat Vintage' and 'Petite' is simply the size of the pipe, otherwise the product is the same. 

    Flush Mount

    Our Flush Mount fixture installs your Barn Light Shade directly to the ceiling. There is no need for a stem with a flush mount. Flush mount lighting takes up less room than traditional pendant lighting, so you can enjoy the same pendant shades in homes with lower ceilings.

    Stem Length

    Additional Mounting Options

    [HSC] Hang Straight Canopy

    Our Hang Straight Canopy is perfect for mounting stem pendants on sloped ceilings, featuring a ball and socket affixed to a 15cm backing plate that lets your stem hang true from a slope ceiling.

    E27 Lampholder

    Our Standard Ceramic E27 (Edison 27mm) Lampholder that suits "screw-in bulbs". You can find your preferred 27mm ES bulbs at your local hardware store. Maximum Wattage is 200W Incandescent. Lamps for all lights except for those with (atomic or schoolhouse) glass (100W MAX). 

    We call this 'dumb wired' since there is nothing between the lampholder and the supply wires. Input Voltage is 230V@50Hz.

    Cast Guard Style

    [CGG] Standard Cast Guard

    Our Standard Cast Guard is made from die-cast aluminium, threaded at the base, for affixing to the bottom of our shades & Atomic family of products. Designed to withstand any decent amount of shock to protect the glass and globe within. 90% of customers choose this guard.

    [TGG] Heavy Duty Cast Guard

    Our Thick or 'Heavy Duty' Cast guard is designed to be both idiot and vandal proof. Made using the same die as our Standard, this bulkier cousin is ideal for pubs, clubs, restaurants, and any place you might find flying beer bottles. Ultimately the strongest of our cast guard, it also permits the least amount of light out.

    [WGG] Nautical Wire Guard

    If the ship has sailed, and you want to remember the experience - our Nautical Wire Guard is just for you. Made from steel wire, this guard is designed to allow the most light output while providing some protection. Best used where beach balls and tennis balls are frequently used.

    Glass Options

    [CLR] Clear Glass

    Our simple Clear Glass is designed for the maximum amount of light output you can possibly obtain from any globe. Made from thick glass, light dispersal is rated to a minimum. If you'd like to have an additional styling benefit consider using a vintage styled LED bulb or the typical incandescent bulbs for ambient lighting.

    [FRS] Frosted Glass

    Our frosted glass is manufactured right here at Barn Light. Using our handy sandblaster, the inside of the glass is blasted with a fine garnet media to produce a halo effect around the shade. Best used if a higher wattage bulb is required and you need to hide the hideous thing.

    [RIB] Ribbed / Prismatic Glass

    The "prettiest" and most expensive. Hand-blown by master glassblowers in New Jersey, USA, these prismatic or simply 'ribbed' pieces of glass are designed for both ambiance and lighting brilliance. Enjoy the shadows dancing upon your wall while dining and entertaining.

    Ceramic E27 or Integrated LED

    E27 Lampholder

    Our Standard Ceramic E27 (Edison 27mm) Lampholder that suits "screw in bulbs". You can find your preferred 27mm ES bulbs at your local hardware store. Maximum Wattage is 200W Incandescent. Lamps for all lights except for those with glass (100W).

    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.

Choose from a range of 850Lumen through to 4000Lumen 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 230V@50Hz 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.

The shade is constructed using commercial grade materials, giving every Original™ Pendant the reliability home and business owners desire.

Make no mistake, there are cheap copies out there however these products are made to a higher standard, specifically one to match the manufacturing methods that pre-dates our parents (not that we’d tell them)!
