Swanage 45 – Copper Outdoor Wall Light

*Natural Copper

Crafted from elegant natural copper, this light has a traditional look and feel and will weather over time to create a charming natural effect that blends in with various outdoor surroundings. This organic effect on the natural copper happens because it reacts with atmospheric oxygen, which means a 'Verdigris' effect may be present after longer periods of time. This oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of the natural copper, creating a traditional, decorative appearance. If a pristine, shiny copper finish is preferred, a lacquer can easily be applied to prevent the natural copper process such Simoniz Clear Lacquer.

IP Ratings

IP Ratings are commonly found on lighting products to determine how well they are protected against specific conditions namely water and dust. The letters ‘IP’ stand for ‘Ingress Protection’. IP Ratings include 2 numbers, the first one refers to the level of protection against solids, such as hands, tools, grit and dust. The second refers to protection against liquids. The protection is numerically rated between 0 and 6 for solids (8 for liquids – fully submersible), with 0 being not protected and 6 or 8 being the highest level of protection. An IP rating of IP43 is suitable for outdoor use. To see a table please click here.
