Installation & Maintenance Guide
Most of our lamps are built as standard in order to be wired into your house. Here is a reference of electricians with whom we work regularly for residential projects: BR Electric offers a turnkey service and guarantee an appointment within two weeks of your call, they cover the Eastern Townships – South Shore – Montreal region.
The use of aggressive cleaning products should be avoided in order to maintain a beautiful finish.

Glass Ball Installation
Our collarless glass balls use a clip system to hold the glass in place. Please refer to our Glass Ball Installation and Removal Guide for more details.
> Glass Ball Installation

The installation of a lamp is an important factor in creating ambience you desire. Both enjoyable and practical. As every space and every person is different, we recommend that you refer to your designer or architect if you are unsure. *As shown here, we suggest you calculate a 30 to 36 height above the surface of the table and island to install the fixture.

Unfinished Brass

Natural brass is a living material that ages beautifully. Over time, it will gradually develop the rich, textured colour that makes it so unique. To avoid excessive marking, please wear gloves during installation. It can be cleaned and dusted with a clean, dry microfibre cloth.
> Handling Raw Brass

Powder Coat Paint (Lamp Shade)
The powder coating is very resistant on aluminum surfaces. However, it is recommended to keep a good maintenance to maintain a nice finish. We recommend cleaning with warm water, mild soap and a clean cloth. Avoid solvents, chemical and abrasive cleaners, bleach and furniture polishes.

Glass is a fragile material that needs to be handled with care. If possible, please remove the glass ball before cleaning. We recommend using a conventional glass cleaner or hot soapy water and a clean cloth. Handling the glass with a clean cloth will limit excessive fingerprints on the surface.
