Lumena offer one of the best ranges of solid brass and natural copper outdoor lights available in the UK.
Both brass and copper are extremely durable materials, with brass being a combination of copper and zinc, meaning neither can rust or corrode. Over time brass will subtly weather and naturally change to a darker colour which will blend in with the garden surroundings. Copper also naturally changes colour quite dramatically, often resulting in a brown or ‘verdigris’ effect, again to blend in with the outdoor surroundings. This is because copper reacts with atmospheric oxygen. Although some people may prefer a pristine, shiny copper finish, the oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of natural copper creating a traditional, ‘olde worlde’ appearance. If a new copper finish is preferred, a layer of lacquer can prevent / slow down the weathering process.
Lumena offer a variety of products in copper and / or brass including 12v and 240v spike lights, wall lights, brick lights, in-ground / decking lights, underwater lights, spreadlights, path lights, pedestal lights and lamp posts. The majority of our brass outdoor garden lights have a rustic brushed bronze finish, however a number have in a highly polished finish which is more of a gold colour rather than brown. A variety of solid brass accessories are also available to use alongside our Charleston Cobra Range.
