Posted on: 27 Feb 2015. Category: Genuine vintage light fittings
We now buy, sell and restore genuine vintage lighting. We have many contacts across the UK having been trading for 41 years, so we often pick up lots of vintage lighting. Most of this is 50+ years old so needs a little TLC. We have a workshop at the rear of the shop and an electrician comes in twice a week to refurb the lighting as it comes in. Not only do we restore lighting to sell on we also repair old light fittings for customers. This new service has proven very popular as many companies do not offer a repair service and most people have resolved to the fact that they may have to bin a much loved light fitting, as they do not know how to repair it.

In 1955, from one man's expertise in the fields of fan design and air flow measurement, the Airflow Developments group of companies was founded. Initially based in one factory in High Wycombe the company has since blossomed into a thriving multi-million pound international, manufacturing and research group headquartered in High Wycombe. Airflow has earned its reputation as a world leader by continually providing innovative, quality products backed by in-built reliability and developed by experts in air movement who manufacture to the stringent requirements of ISO9001 and ISO14001. Building Regulations Approved Document F: Ventilation (2010 Edition), stipulates the provision of adequate mechanical ventilation rates in non-habitable rooms such as toilets, bathrooms, shower rooms, kitchens and utility rooms in domestic dwellings. Naturally AIRFLOW fans exceed the requirements helping to combat the harmful effects of dampness and condensation, and by extracting airborne pollutants such as odours, cooking smells, humid and stale air, the potential hazards to the health of occupants and possible damage to the fabric of the building can be largely eliminated.

Rope lights are an easy way to introduce creativity and color into your lighting design. They are made up of tiny lights, either incandescent bulbs or light emitting diodes (LEDs), which are spaced about an inch apart and covered in heavy-duty plastic tubing. Their construction provides for strength and durability, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. However, it is their flexibility and customizable, form-fitting nature that distinguishes rope lights from other light sources. Rope lights are a very versatile product that can be installed just about anywhere, conforming to the shape of their surroundings. One of the most common uses is as a cove or accent light. Placing a rope light behind another object can provide a soft and appealing accent glow. This method is often used in home theaters, living rooms, bars, clubs, trade shows, and anywhere else where a soft glow is desired. A second use for rope lights is perimeter lighting, where a run of rope light outlines or wraps around an architectural element in order to define it and bring attention to it. This technique can be used around decks, staircases, railings, and building facades. Another common use is to place the rope lights in the foreground of your space as the main focal point. This works especially well when the rope lights are twisted and bent into interesting forms or recognizable shapes or sculptures.
