Lighting - FAQ's


1.     What is a Fitter?

Shade Selection by Fitting Mechanism:


When choosing a lamp shade, it's important to consider the fitting mechanism that ensures a secure and aesthetically pleasing attachment to the lamp base. Here's a breakdown of the two main types of shade fittings:


  • Fitter Neck: This type of shade features a narrow neck designed to fit within a gallery fitting, a ring-like attachment on the lamp base. The diameter of the fitter neck is measured externally to ensure compatibility. Common fitter neck sizes include:

    • 57mm (2 ½”)
    • 80mm (3 ¼”)
    • 100mm (4”)          

  • Fitter Hole: These shades have a centre hole that allows them to be mounted directly onto a bulb holder or a specialized fitting like a vase cap or monk cap. Smaller fitter holes can be placed directly onto a bulb holder, while larger sizes are designed for specific shade rings. Common fitter hole sizes include:

    • 28-30mm (1 ¼ ”) - Compatible with Bayonet Cap Bulb Holders
    • 40-42mm (1 ½ ”) - Compatible with E27 Bulb Holders
    • 50mm (2”)
    • 80mm (3 ¼”)
    • 100mm (4”)


2.     Measurements Explained


For all products, we clearly specify the following dimensions in our descriptions:


  • Overall Height: This measurement includes the entire height of the shade, encompassing the neck if present.

  • Maximum Diameter: This value indicates the widest point of the shade.

  • Fitter Size: This refers to the compatibility size of the shade's attachment mechanism.
