Pendant Light: Weight

We suggest that our cable pendants can hold a 1.7kg shade. We have seen some installations with the shade up to 3kg.

If your shade is heavier than 1.7kg then it will be your installers decision as to if it safe.

You cannot get cable that will 'hold more weight'. The reason is that the weak spot is the connection between lampholder and cable.

Thicker rope cable cannot hold more weight. It has the same internal connection points as normal sized cable.

Wrapping cable to remove pressure on the connection point is one way to support a heavier shade.

Adding chain to reduce the pressue on the cable is another choice. See this post.
