The frame has been designed to fit any UK fitting (Bayonet Cap B22) or European (Edison Screw E27). It comes with a clever little converter plug which enables it to work with both fittings.

Lampshades with our PVC-based products will be fire resistant. Our PVC material has been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and has passed the glow wire test.

The self-adhesive lampshade panel has been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and has passed the glow wire test which is The British Standard for Luminaries.

Advice for choosing a bulb:

A major yet often overlooked aspect of lampshade selection is safety—specifically, heat generation in relation to shade size. Higher wattage bulbs generate greater amounts of heat and require more ventilation, which means larger or wider shades must be used. For example, for a 60-watt bulb, there must be at least 75mm of space between the bulb and the backing of the lampshade. Very simply, the higher the wattage, the larger the shade.

Below is a simple Heat Ventilation Guide so you can determine the wattage for your lampshade:

Bulb Size/ Wattage Critical Radius

0-25 Watts/ 25mm

26-40 Watts/ 50mm

41-60 Watts/ 65mm

61-75 Watts/ 75mm

76-100 Watts/ 90mm

101-150 Watts/ 130mm

We recommend you use low energy bulbs and that will reduce the risk of heat generation.
