Lighting accessories

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Looking at our website you will be aware that at King’s Chandelier Services Ltd we specialise in the care and restoration of antique and vintage chandeliers, either undertaking the restoration on a clients behalf or supplying the vintage parts for a clients own chandelier restoration (a task that can become a labour of love rather than a daunting task) but you may not have realised that we stock a large comprehensive range of lighting accessories.

The range of lighting accessories compliments the chandelier restoration projects but covers much more to include everyday lighting maintenance and repair.  Visit our Spares, Parts and accessory pages, http://www.kingschandeliers.co.uk/chandelier-parts-and-accessories.html to view the various categories.

Candle tubes, candle sleeves, candle covers

Sometimes looking for parts for your chandelier can be daunting as either you are uncertain what the part is called so cannot begin an effective search or each site you visit refers to them by different names.

On the King’s Chandelier Services website we endeavour to refer to as many terminology’s as possible;  one of the common parts with various names is the candle tube.

This part is to cover the lamp holder, hiding it from view and gives the illusion of a candle, imitating the style of candle chandeliers.

Some of the most common names are shown below:-

candle tube, candle sleeve, candle cover, candle covers, candle sleeves, candle tubes, lamp holder covers, decorative lamp holder covers, lamp holder sleeves, chandelier candle covers, chandelier candle sleeves, drip effect candle tubes, gothic candle sleeves, shabby chic candle sleeves, chandelier sleeve holders

To match the many names here at King’s we stock over 50 varieties of candle tubes, many of which can be customised to customers requirements in relation to height.  Please contact us if you wish to discuss customisation.

Our video “how to measure a candle tubes for your  chandelier and wall lights” offers advice on choosing  the size and style.

Over 50 different styles and sizes of candle tubes, candle sleeves and candle covers available from Kings Chandelier Services Ltd

Our new workshop and photography studio have been completed in time for the birthday weekend allowing us to plan the new “How to” videos – links will be posted via our blog to keep you updated.

New product lines will be being added and with the delivery of a consignment of antique chandeliers and vintage spares you can expect over the coming months the chandelier spares and accessories sections to be updated.

Choosing your replacement bobeche/drip trays

IMG-20141220-00210

For whatever reason you have decided to replace one or more of your bobeche/drip trays but other than matching the pattern of existing bobeche on your chandelier or the style you have decided on what do you need to know before purchasing?

With the right information ready choosing should not be too difficult or complex so here are a few tips to help you in your choice:-

  1. One of the most important dimensions is the centre hole – too small and it may not fit on your chandelier arm, too large and  it may slip over.  Don’t worry if you find the ideal one and the centre hole does not match as sometimes we may be able to extend the centre hole or may have a filler insert.
  2. How large is your existing bobeche?  Measure across at the widest point to get the dimension in millimetres
  3. How deep is your bobeche? Not quite as easy a measurement to take but measure from the highest point to the lowest – if you find a suitable match you can always email us our part number and ask us to confirm how we measured to ensure you are measuring in the same way.
  4. How many pin holes do you want your replacement to have – again on occasion we can drill pin holes but this is dependant on the design of the bobeche

Now all you need is a nice cup of tea and the time to check out our website http://www.kingschandeliers.co.uk/chandelier-parts-and-accessories/3
