First the negatives

I've bought 2 of these now and they've both suffered similar problems.

The glass panels are packed separately and you have to fit them. There are two things to watch out for. Firstly the glass is rough cut with VERY sharp edges. Secondly the threaded holes which take the tiny screws that hold the glass clips are poorly threaded and strip easily. Luckily there are spare threaded holes.

The fit between the front cover and back panel is very crude. In some places there are gaps, in others it's too tight. Once the cover is fitted you may struggle to remove it. I had to file some of the burrs and mold flashings off the back panel to make it easier. One could argue that the back panel should be fitted the other way around (so the burrs and mold flashings are next to the wall), but that's not the way it's been assembled.

The screw that holds the front cover on is too short. I had to increase the counter-bore of the front cover hole to get the cover screw to engage properly on both units.

Now the positive

I fitted one of these over a year ago and it still looks good. No peeling paint, no yellowing of the back panel.

With a few small tweaks this could be an excellent product, but I feel the quality has been sacrificed to save manufacturing cost.

I purchased 4 lights and all have the same design or manufacturing defect. The outer casing is secured by a peg at the top and a screw at the bottom. In all 4 units the peg at the top is set too far back, making it impossible to fit the cover to the baseplate without adding packing behind the baseplate. Not satisfactory. Not recommended as a purchase unless assurance can be given that the defect has been corrected. Mike.

looks fine in situ. I changed the lower fixing to hold the unit flush to the wall.Plastic shroud covering the wiring flimsy and difficult to locate if solid core wire used for the supply.

Cheap and cheerful. The light is aluminium. The class panels are real glass. The appearance is rustic and quite nice. The back plate is held to the wall by just two screws at the top. The glass has to be fitted to the cover using the small screws and clips provided. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE SCREWS TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THREADS OR GLASS. The cover holds on to the back plate by a pin at the top and is not very reliable. I added another fixing to ensure that the cover was held securely. The cover has one screw located at the bottom. DO NOT OVERTIGHTERN TO AVOID STRIPPING THE THREAD IN THE BACK PLATE. Add some grease to the screw to ensure easy fitting and to discourage corrosion. All in all not a bad light fitting for the money. MUST BE EARTHED.

Build quality looked ok BUT could not wire as obscure star style screw used to secure cover for connector bock, so without buying a specialist driver bit, not usable!
