Carbide floodlight reflectors. Circa 1930 (MK1)Era: 1930s
Superb run of salvaged ex stock carbide reflectors. Shallow profile spun steel reflectors with plated polished internal surface and matt external face.
Where possible we retain the original finish of a light - it is part of its history and emphasises its heritage. However, sometimes leaving a surface as we find it just isn’t possible. Some lights made from non-ferrous metals, such as aluminium, arrive so severely degraded we need to remove their outer layers to allow any further surface treatment to be applied. We do this using an environmentally friendly technique known as ‘soda blasting’. Soda blasting works by applying bicarbonate of soda to a surface under high pressure. The crystals explode at the point of impact and this ‘blasts’ the layer of degradation away - leaving the surface clean for the next stage in restoration.
Supplied with new nickel plated cord-grip bayonet (B22) lamp holders and 2mtrs of traditional black braided cable.
Supplied tested to BS EN60598. IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.

I’ve now purchased five different products over two home refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed and packaging it is spot on. It's only skinflint that make me wish I had another project to work on and a larger property to kit out.
