The ever-popular Universal shade is useful in any situation. Its gently angled edges make it attractive in itself, and shed a wide and gentle arc downwards from its deeper dome. Now available as a wall-light, the Universal sconce will highlight one area of your wall while providing ample light throughout the rest of your walkway. Ideal to light the front entrance of your house, or as a row along a corridor, the Universal sconce will add contrast where you want it, and soft illumination for the rest of the space.

The Backing Plate.
Our Hand Finished Aluminium Wall Sconce Plate [SCO-WBP2 / SCO-WBP3] is 160mm in diameter and projects 48mm off the wall.
The Sconce / Gooseneck / Support Arms.
Our Sconce Arms are manufactured from Brass-plated, clear coated, rolled steel. We prepare the surfaces and then powdercoat a top-coat of your selected colour. Whilst we use aluminium for every other facet of our manufacturing process, the structural integrity of steel is required for these wall light models.
For “Three Hole” models, our supplied “Barn Light Electric” stamped connector is manufactured in the USA from die-cast aluminium.
Wall Fixing Bracket
We provide a steel “Cross Bar” with M10x1.0mm threaded in the centre. This fixing permits customers with different mounting surfaces (and angles, like weatherboards) to “reblock” the backing without needing to modify the product to suit. The ability to install the crossbar over two surfaces makes these installation advantageous for non-recessed electrical terminations.
To affix this bracket to your structure using any of your typical fixings (think Timber Screws/Concrete/Masonry Fixings), then affix your Sconce Backing Plate using our supplied 75mm Threaded Nipple A supplied, colour-matched decorative Brass Locknut finishes your new design
We supply an Australian Made, closed cell (waterproofing) gasket designed to fit between your Wall Sconce Plate & Mounting Surface. The gasket is 5mm thick, 165mm in diameter (5mm larger than the sconce plate) to assist in positioning with a 30mm centre hole for electrical to be terminated within the sconce plate.
Yup, everything is then packaged into a brown or white paper bag and marked with your colour, size, installation instructions, and any applicable warnings
All Barn Light Lighting takes a common “E27 / Edison Screw / ES / Screw Bulb” that you’ll find at your local hardware, or grocery store.
Yup – 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 wall 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)” – You’ll have the ability to install a 100W Bulb.
Atomic Barn Lighting – 60W
If you select an Accessory such as “Atomic Cast Guard” – When installed with Glass, you’ll be limited to 60W as the sealed glass enclosure becomes a literal heat-trap. 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?
Older homes typically have newer exterior decking which drops the installation point from 1.8m to any deviation, causing issues obtaining replacement lighting, further “Coach Lamps” and similar styles (wall sconces typically push light up!) are usually installed lower than desired once lighting styles are changed.
We recommend measuring the area to ensure you’ve got enough space for the (over-) arching steel arms AND enough room for a drop from the mounting point.
If you’ve got the space for both, our “Two Arm” sconces like The Original, Astro, Old Dixie Wall Lights. A unique benefit for these units is the addition of optional Atomic Cast Guards which increase the IP Rating to IP55.
