Satco Picture Lights
Satco picture lights are an inexpensive solution to lighting artwork or adding light to any kind of framed displays and Satco offers a choice of shades, styles and sizes. Founded in 1966, Satco is well known as a premier supplier of a variety of lighting products. The well known SATCO brand extends to virtually thousands of types of light bulbs, electrical accessories, lighting hardware and fixtures which are sold throughout the country and relied upon by millions every day. You can find Satco products in so many categories, and their prices are very reasonable. Each Satco picture light comes with its first set of bulbs as well. All these Satco picture light shades have a highly reflective interior finish for maximum light output.
Satco traditional picture lights are named Deluxe Picture Lights and come in a small shade size and a medium shade size. Their shades hold T10 25 watt frosted bulbs. The S72-203 Polished Brass with a shade size at 7" would aptly light any picture up to 15" wide; the same size lamp comes in Antique Brass as well, model S72-206 Antique Brass. While the larger traditional Satco picture light, S72-204 in Polished Brass has a 14" shade and could light a picture up to 28" wide. The Antique Brass 14" model number is S72-208. The larger shade takes 2 bulbs; the 7" shade only one. These low cost picture lights hang above and illuminate art, connect to the back of the frame or can be pinned to the walls behind the frames. The lamps have telescopic brackets so they can be positioned at an optimum length from the framed art. The Satco traditional picture lights are plug-in style only and their white cords have switches on the cord. All these traditional Satco picture lights have shades that swivel to aim light where it's wanted.
Another Satco low cost art light has a more slender shade. These are the 7" and 14" Slimline Picture Lights. The chief differences between these and the traditional Satco picture lights is that the Slimline models have an Ultra compact shade design and use smaller bulbs (included) - the 15watt frosted T6 bulbs. Like the traditional, these lamps also feature adjustable swivel shade and telescopic bracket to adjust in or out from the artwork. Also, the On/off switch is on the cord. Satco slimline art lighting comes in 7" and 14" sizes, and polished brass or antique brass finishes.
S72-211 is the 7" Antique Brass Slimline Picture Light, and S72-210 7" is the Polished Brass Slimline Picture Light. The S72-214 is the 14" Antique Brass Slimline Picture Light and the S72-213 is the 14" Polished Brass Slimline Picture Light. It is recommended that the 7" lights be used for pictures up to about 15" wide, and the 14" lights be used to light pictures up to about 28" wide. Low cost brass picture lights are certainly an option when in transition, starting out or staging a display in a public space.
