As a useful source of general illumination, the Gridiron mounts two fixtures to the same structure. Highly efficient LED modules, contained within the shades, generate an unprecedented 61,000 continuous hours of light, substantially reducing a venue’s maintenance requirements. A heatsink prevents the fixture from overheating as it efficiently converts energy into high-lumen light. Multiple color temperatures provide a setting’s proper mood.
With multiple finish options, including separate colors for the heatsink and shade, the Gridiron can assume a wide variety of styles and personalities. Elegant, yet still durable, copper and brass shades communicate a more refined, sophisticated character while porcelain and powder coat bring color to the design. Manufactured by hand, the Gridiron demonstrates the structural integrity needed in commercial buildings, stadiums, and amphitheaters.
For oil-rubbed copper, weathered copper and brass finishes, slight variations may occur from shade to shade.
Copper and brass fixtures have a longer lead time and may take up to 4 weeks to manufacture. There are no returns accepted on these metals.
Copper is a "living" metal that, without regular cleaning, will undergo a natural weathering process. Much like the formation of rust on iron, a patina develops on copper which actually protects the metal. If you prefer the new-penny look of copper, you can keep it shiny with regular care with a gentle cleaning agent such as Bar Keepers Friend.
Porcelain enamel, our signature finish, is celebrated for its protective properties and unique, high-gloss surface. Every porcelain shade is fired in a special oven. To relieve the pressure that builds up in these high temperatures, one or more vent holes are included in the shade's design. The hole(s) are later sealed with silicon to prevent any chance of moisture intrusion that could damage the shade.
All fixtures undergo a strict quality control evaluation to ensure they meet our high standards; however, some minor blemishes may occur due to our hands-on construction and manufacturing processes. These blemishes do not affect the functionality of the fixture.

Finish Care & Maintenance
No metal fixture, no matter the finish, is guaranteed against corrosion especially in salt air environments. If your fixture is installed in a location near salt water, we recommend cleaning it frequently.
If your fixture is not installed in a location near salt water, we recommend periodic cleaning with a mild soap-and-water wash and gentle buffing to extend the life of our painted finishes.
