You want your outdoor / open-air living areas to be well lit. The Racine will do this beautifully, and reliably, as it is rated for damp conditions. The down-rod, frame, and braces are all warm English Brass, and the metal is complemented by beautiful panes of clear water glass. The frame and the glass encloses 6 C type bulbs, and the cups are also brass. The overall effect is regal: a perfect complement for traditional or transitional designs. A 36" length and 19" width, with 60 watt bulbs, assures plentiful light. The down-rod can extend to 68" and a 30? swivel mount can be used to accommodate a sloped roof. Your porch, balcony, semi-enclosed deck (or any fresh-air room) will absolutely love Racine's royal treatment.
