Concorde Test House lights (Type 7)

Luminaire Reference: 13_1613

Substantial cast iron industrial bulkheads by British manufacturer 'Walsall' salvaged from the National Turbine Test facilities at Pyestock, Fleet, UK. Circa 1950. Prismatic glass lens located within brushed and lacquered cast iron housing complete with numerous cast manufacturers details. Supplied with new porcelain screw (E27) lamp holders.

Can be utilised in either a horizontal or vertical orientation making them suitable for both wall and ceiling applications.

The National Gas Turbine Establishment (NGTE Pyestock) was established in the early 1950s and was the prime site in the UK for design and development of gas turbine and jet engines. For over 50 years Pyestock was at the forefront of gas turbine development and was probably the largest site of its kind in the world. Concorde, Harrier and Tornado engines were tested on site. The power of the test houses allowed Concorde's engines to be tested at 2,000 mph.
