Lighting - FAQ's
What is a Fitter?
The fitter is the "lip" part of a glass shade or globe that attaches to the shade-holder of the fixture. Common fitter sizes (diameters) are 28mm (1-1/4") 57mm (2 1/2") 85mm (3-1/4") and 100mm (4"). We measure the fitter on the outside of the lip.

Where are your measurements taken from?
The height is the overall height of the shade or fixture. For shades we measure the height from the top of the fitter through the centre of the shade. For complete fixture the overall height, is taken from the top of the fitting to the base.
For shades the diameter, refers to the diameter measured at the widest point of the shade The Fitter, please see above.
