Striking Long Drop Crystal, Glass & Metal Lighting

This section has fittings which are long drop suspended, meaning they do not sit flush to the ceiling but allow you to change the suspension length to suit. If you choose a fitting which sits flush it can limit the drop or be a pain to change all the pendants heights...

These long drop pendants are perfect for illuminating and creating a featuring in stairwells. With polished chrome, elegant crystals, flowers and prisms they sparkle when lit ensuring your space is a real talking point (especially if the neighbours can see through a glass window to your staircase!).  Long drop lights can also be used in rooms with high ceilings provided you work out the drop required and install accordingly. Just ensure that you measure twice to ensure the fitting will not get in the way of head height.

If access is difficult to the stairwell choose a product with LED energy saving lamps for long life, low maintenance.  Lighting Styles is an expert on long drop lighting so if you require advice we will happily discuss your requirements.

Ceiling lighting - long drop chandeliers - features and information

Unusual long drop crystal lighting ideal for hallways, stairwells and high ceiling properties. Choose from a variety of long drop crystal finishes and designs.

Confused as to the difference between crystal and glass? Crystal has a lead content of at least 24% whereas glass has no lead. Very fine quality crystal will contain anywhere from 36% to 70%. Higher lead content increases clarity, brilliance and weight however lead crystal is soft and more susceptible to scratching.

So, the difference between glass and crystal is the lead content and glass contains little or no lead. Glass will usually have softer edges than crystal.

Whether a product is labelled as crystal or glass (or sometimes cut glass) differs from country to country. In the Western world crystal usually indicates the presence of lead with a content of at least 24%. Lights containing 10% of lead oxide can be labelled as crystal and products containing more than 30% of lead oxide are labelled as "high-lead crystal".

In the Czech Republic, the term "crystal" is used for any exquisite, high quality glass. Therefore "leaded crystal" means that the crystal contains more than 24% of lead oxide.

The presence of lead softens the glass and makes it more suitable for cutting and engraving. Lead increases the weight of the glass and causes the glass to refract light. If crystal contains less than 24% of lead, it has a higher proportion of barium oxide which ensures that the light refracts well.

A crystal chandelier will cast a high spectrum of colours around the room and if its content of lead is higher the chandelier will provide even more sparkle.

Acrylic Crystal Beads

Acrylic is a useful, clear plastic that resembles glass, but has properties that make it superior to glass in many ways. It is lighter making it less easy to break or shatter.

Acrylic may have a transparency rate of 93% making it the clearest material known. Very thick glass will have a green tint, while acrylic remains clear.

There are some misconceptions about acrylic, namely that it yellows, turns brittle and cracks over time. Though this might be true of very cheap forms of plastic, it is not so with acrylic. Some people worry that acrylic scratches too easily, but unlike glass, scratches can be easily buffed out of acrylic and there are now products on the market enabling you to easily do this should you need to.
