Choose batten holders with lamp shade rings to add your favourite shades.
What is a batten holder?
A batten holder is an electrical component. It is the light fittings that is hard wired to the wiring in your home, café or space in which the light bulb is screwed into. Instead of fabric cable connecting a lamp holder to the ceiling, a batten holder reduces the need to use electrical cord. It is instead a lamp holder connected directly to a wall or ceiling.
Extra fixtures can be added to this component such as shades and cable extenders.
Also known as a DIY batten fix, ceiling fitting, ceiling lamp holder, fermaluce or spocaluce.
Why choose batten holders?
Batten holders are a useful choice in design because of the flexibility they allow. Once fixed in the ceiling or onto a wall there is no need to call an electrician if you want to change your lighting design. It is the ultimate in DIY lighting. If you don’t have space to hang a pendant, then this component is ideal because of its flush fit with the surface you are installing it onto. Batten holders can have shades attached directly to them allowing an ease of updating or cleaning your light shades.
Batten holders can come in a few different fittings such as bayonet or Edison screw so it’s important to check what kind of light bulb you will be securing into it.
