    *G4 Small Factory Arm

    Our G4 Small Straight Arm is appropriately smaller - It is petite enough for us to justify inclusion into our "Wall Light" range. If you purchase the smallest shade of any Wall Light Configuration, the G4 will be most suitable, if you buy anything else above 30cm - We'll likely give you a call to find a solution for your space. What does it look like? The G4 Small Straight Arm looks exactly like our G14, with a shorter projection. The projection of the arm is 21cm;  Need to know how projection works?

    *[DLQ] - Dulux Lexicon Quarter

    Lexicon® Quarter has a cool, fresh, modern appearance, particularly when applied to walls and trims. This finish will provide a seamless up-to-date style to your home, extending that look, feel, and style using a Barn Light ;). Powdercoat is a different product to paint, not all powdercoats look like paints, and the variance in satins, gloss levels, and matte level vary dramatically.

    *WS975-Galvanised Appendum


    WS975-Galvanised is a premium, hand-painted finish manufactured from quality fine metallic paints and Acrylic Etch Primers designed to age with the building and surrounds. You'll be probably asking yourself, "Is it Steel?". The answer is NO, it is not. Its hand-dabbed automotive quality paint formula, sprayed by our employees.

    1. This paint/finish is expensive - 8Ltrs of this formula costs $800.
    2. We haven't changed paint formulation since 2014, and we've got this finish installed at Seaworld (yes, that one) for the past 10 years.
    3. We don't keep stock - All parts needs to be batched. The pattern changes subtly based on the operator.
    4. Leadtimes vary a touch more than usual due to the labour required to achieve this finish.

    By checking this box, you acknowledge that Warranties are limited to two-years from the date of purchase for this finish, as aging is a desired effect.

The Hobart looks familiar…

You’ve seen it everywhere, yet nowhere these days. It looks like a billiard table light, but on a straight arm? – Correct. It looks like it should be suspended like a kitchen island pendant? – Correct (Hobart Cord Pendant?). It looks vintage, yet modern enough to compliment any modern outdoor aesthetic (its larger) however you’ll likely see the Hobart more around Brick Pillars or around a bespoke “Hipster” Craft Brewery than at a local shopping centre. The Hobart has a curious history because its not truly ours. If you are looking for a shallow bowl light to create a well lit (and dispersed!) outdoor area, but don’t want to see a glaring bulb, The Hobart Factory Wall Light is the best of both worlds. The Hobart Factory Wall Light appears as if railway light, a light that you’ve likely seen along heritage railway yards (or if old enough, the local!) – Large, wide lighting dispersal where its needed, otherwise it keeps the locals whisper quiet in the evening. If you’ve ever decided that you wanted something simple, yet compelling, consider the Hobart Factory Wall Light

The History of Barn Light’s Hobart

Why the Hobart? It was once named as “The Classic”, admittedly classically designed however not very descriptive. Customers made it all to easy to call it the “The Asian Hat”, “The Rice Paddy” – or – “The Other Witches’ Hat” (that’s the Astro) because that’s what they’d call it over the phone – Not exactly culturally insensitive, however very descriptive. After discussing the re-release of this Shade design, we settled on “Hobart”, yet we wanted to have a *reason* to call the Hobart, the Hobart. The Hobart Shade was once called “The Regatta” – aka – The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race by our Metalspinners as the shade replicates the shade sails from a time that this race was probably still won in wooden ships. “The Regatta” shade mold is officially older than every employee that works here at Barn Light.

Frequently Answered Questions

Yes – We have been developing our lighting for years and it is ready to integrate with any sensor on the market today. Your electrician, or related professional will work closely with you to determine which solution best suits your needs, but don’t worry: to put it simply, buying a Barn Light is the easy part of your lighting plan.

The types of sensors available on the market today are microwave (movement), lux meters (during dusk-to dawn periods), and PIR Sensors for night (heat sensor). The best solution for you will depend upon your local conditions, thus supplying a motion sensor isn’t under the purview of the lighting products we provide. 

For example: If you live in an area with nocturnal life, you wouldn’t want to install a motion sensor in your backyard covering a large amount of area. For similar reasons, you wouldn’t want a heat sensor covering the sunset as stone holds heat for a long period of time. Some video cameras these days now have a “pre-determined scope” or area of control to focus on, ignoring all else such as a driveway, ignoring the surrounds.

As every Barn Light is unique, every projection depends on a variety of factors.

We’ve written a “how to” article to make measurement easier for designers and specifiers with a quick array of factory mounting arms to assist you with making sure everything fits nicely in your new space. If you need a custom length, projection, or drop – we can manufacture to suit – just contact barn light

The Backing Plate itself.

Our Die-Cast Wall Backing Plate [WBP-25mm / WBP-20mm] is 120mm in diameter and adds approximately 30mm to your Wall Projections. The mounting screws are 89mm apart (Left/Right) across from each other or 45mm from the Centre Point. You can opt to install your wall backing plate on a 90° Angle in order to affix to 100mm square posts (for example).

LED? (LMH Only!) If you’ve got a commercial LED Chipset as part of your new Barn Light, see our Heavy Duty Wall Backing Plate for additional information. We’re always on the lookout for new technology and most (if not all) will have drivers contained within this custom bracket.

Adaptor Bracket

We provide a universal “Adaptor Bracket” that allows you to affix this bracket to your structure using any of your typical fixings (think Timber Screws/Concrete/Masonry Fixings), then affixing your Wall Backing Plate using our supplied 2x 8-32 x3/4″ (M4 sized) Pan Phillips Screws into said Adaptor Bracket.

Waterproofing Gasket 

We supply an Australian Made closed cell (waterproofing) gasket designed to fit between your Adaptor Bracket & Wall Backing Plate. Please use it. It drives us nuts developing (and paying) for something that the electrician just casts aside. That and it voids your warranty if its not installed. This custom gasket doesn’t get any better engineered and it’ll likely last long enough for you to ask for replacements when you move home.

Grub Screws

Two Steel Black (or Silver) Zinc Plated Grub Screws (5/16″ x 3/8″) are supplied to hold your gooseneck in position requiring a 4mm Allen/Hex (not included) tools to clamp in place.

Neoprene Gasket

A synthetic rubber O-Ring is supplied to butt against the internal 25mm Entry (nominally larger due to die-casting) and the 25mm Aluminium Gooseneck Arm (Straight Arm, Sconce, or otherwise).

Recyclable Packaging?

Yup, everything is then packaged into a brown or white paper bag and marked with your colour, size, installation instructions, and any applicable warnings.

Lost your installation instructions or your sparkie can’t find them? On the Box is a QR Code to be scanned, and here’s the direct link to installation instructions.

We partner with vintageled.com.au to supply us all LED Edison style Light bulbs – Ironically, their factory is around the corner from our own factory so while we currently sell a small range of vintage LED bulbs we do have the full range available to you.

You can find our offering on the individual product pages, otherwise if you’d rather select a different bulb visit vintageled.com.au, find your bulb and we can add this to your existing Barn Light order. Simply send us a message and we’ll take care of the ordering and freight.

All Barn Light Lighting takes a common “E27 / Edison Screw / ES / Screw Bulb” that you’ll find at your local hardware, or grocery store. What’s the wattage? 100W Max for our standard range of lighting. Anything with “ATOM” refers to our Atomic unit – that makes it 60W Max with the glass installed.

See below for more information

Yup – We use a ceramic Edison Screw (E27) Lampholder.

What’s Better? Ceramic?!

Our ceramic/porcelain Lamp holders are simply designed to take as much heat as possible (Yes, We build better lighting than our competitors) without effecting the mounting / electrical cabling. Our outdoor wall lighting is based on decades old, reliable, vintage engineering. 

Standard Outdoor Barn Lights – 100W

If you select the “default” arrangement which is simply marked as “Edison Screw Lampholder (No Bulbs Supplied)” – You’ll have the ability to install a 100W Bulb.

Atomic Barn Lighting – 60W

If you select an Accessory such as “Atomic Cast Guard” – When installed with Glass, you’ll be limited to 100W as the sealed glass enclosure becomes a literal heat-trap. You can opt to NOT install the glass at your discretion however Atomic “Fully Integrated LEDs” required the installation of glass at all times.

What you *may* want to know if considering purchasing elsewhere 

Our competitors will be supplying you with a thermo-plastic lampholder which gets brittle & cracks over time, with a maximum of 60W being typical (also.. not organic / not recyclable). Need to light up an area? Nope – You’ll now need to install spotlights to find your car in Winter.

What’s.. a Watt?

Back in the olden days of Edison, Tesla & General Electric the creation of tungsten filaments began to light up the world – Simply put, the higher the wattage usage (electricity) the brighter the light. The usage of “Watts” was quite literally a measurement of heat generated since voltages were common  (220Volts) and the only element that changed was the amount of electricity drawn. Obviously… Draw too much electricity and things either start to melt, explode, or otherwise provide some dangerous entertainment. So limits were decided upon. That measurement was the basis to how electricity has been integrated with the lighting market ever since. These “modern” days, we use “Lumens” (L) and “Lumens per Watt” (lm/W) to rate lighting output and electricity usage. 

Smart Bulbs – When you need a kaleidoscope of colour.

Yes, our lighting is fully compatible however we suggest that you try one bulb in the most furthest away location from your wireless signal. We manufacture with Aluminium, and you’ll likely install your new Barn Lights onto Brick or Concrete walls. Neither of these materials are ideal for wireless signals to penetrate through so tread cautiously.

Yup – We hear you, this is sounding too good to be true for a lighting company.

Frankly (the short answer is “Yes”), we could write a page about this – so we did..  ->  Are Barn Lights Dimmable?

For Entryway and Porch Lighting, our Smaller Wall Light range would typically be better suited for smaller passages. Older homes typically have newer exterior decking which drops the installation point from 1.8m to any deviation, causing issues obtaining replacement lighting. For shortest projections – Our G4 Suits all shades under 30cm, at most our 33cm Old Dixie is suggested.

The standard installation point for these areas is typically 1.8m AFFL (Above Finished Floor Level) for older federation/Queenslander homes.  Newer/Modern Homes typically 1.8m~2.1m AFFL based on the purpose of the light. Using any of our Factory Straight Mounting arms from these heights is more than adequate. 


It’s a visual thing and there’s no rule book that says you HAVE to hang it at a certain height. Have fun with it ~ 

Our G4 or G14 Factory Arms are designed for these locations in mind.

Add 1/2 of the smallest shade diameter of The Hobart Factory Wall Light to the Factory Arm’s to get an overall projection. For areas around a mirror, do check with your electrician as certain clearances must be respected which are based on state electrical rules.

G4 = 21cm Projection
G14 = 34cm Projection
G34 = 34cm Projection + 15cm Drop

Do you want a large statement piece that throws light where its needed or something to keep the paths well lit at night?

We recommend the G14 Factory Arm for areas with walkways underneath, or our G64 Factory Arm where you’ve got both height and projection available to you (probably a new build?) and also require some chain support.

G14 Factory Arm = 34cm Projection
G64 Factory Arm = 50cm Projection (For the Shade, Overall Minimum 60cm)

These arms are manufactured identically and the only discrenable difference is the additional chain support for the G64 (and 10cm less) and the mounting position of the Shade. Most people call this a touch “medieval”…
