FIXED ROD & WIND CHAINS

 

 

As standard each lantern will be supplied with 1 meter/ 40” of chain which can be adjusted on site. All exterior lights have a fixed pendant so that the candle arms do not move within the lantern.

For particularly exposed porches, loggias and pergolas many of our hanging lanterns can be adapted for use with wind chain to help minimise a swinging or twisting movement of the lantern in the wind or modified with a fixed rod to prevent any movement of the fixture.


FIXED ROD

 

A hanging lantern with fixed rod will prevent any movement of the lantern. The fixture will be made with the lantern, rod and ceiling canopy as one rigid piece.

Fixed rod is distinct from ordering rod instead of chain, which has hooks joining the rod to the lantern and ceiling canopy allowing for movement at these points.

 

 

 

To specify a fixed rod for a hanging lantern please state the total drop from the ceiling to the bottom of the fixture required, also stating your chosen ceiling canopy design. Please note the rod will not be adjustable in length onsite so a precise measurement will be needed to commence an order.

Wind may create force and distortion at different points on a lantern with fixed rod and each specified design will be reviewed individually by our de- sign team to modify the frame as required to ensure suitability.

When you have made your selection of lantern and canopy, our sales team can provide a quote for consideration and once you decide to proceed the design team will create a CAD drawing for your approval.

Please note designs with fixed rods have a different installation to the standard canopy. Details of installation will be provided with the CAD drawing for approval.

 

 


WIND CHAINS

 

A hanging lantern with wind chains will minimise any swinging or twisting movement of the lantern in the wind. All chain can be amended in length onsite as required.

The lantern design is modified to include loops for the wind chain to attach to, with the wind chains acting as anchors for the lantern.

Generally, the wind chain fixing plates should be equally spaced on the wall, or ceiling to create a similar angle between the chains axes (i.e. 90° for 4 chains). Wall fixing plates should be perpendicular to the lantern and ceiling fixing plates should be installed as far as possible from the lantern.

 

 

 

We offer a standard round wind chain fixing plate which measures 3 inches/ 76mm diameter. Alternatively, you can request a custom design. Please let us know if you plan to fix to the ceiling or wall and the surface you are fixing to.

Each specified hanging lantern will be reviewed individually by our design team to modify the frame as required to ensure suitability. Different lantern shapes may have different numbers of wind chains.

When you have made your selection of lantern, canopy and wind chain fixing plates our sales team can provide a quote for con- sideration. Please also state the approximate lengths of wind chain required. Once you decide to proceed the design team will create a CAD drawing for your approval.
