How to make a Coolie Lampshade


Where can the lampshade be used?

The finished lampshade can be used as a Pendant (ceiling) with a spider ring fitting, or with a suitable Table or Floor Lamp with a shade carrier frame.(see options)


What type of lamp holder will this lampshade fit?

The lampshade frame included in the kit will fit the standard bayonet cap (BC) lamp holder. This is the most common type of lamp fitting in the UK today. It can also be used with Edison Screw (E27) lamp holders, most common in Europe, simply remove the converter plug in the centre of the fitting.


What type of bulb can I use with them?

Low energy bulbs are recommended with the lampshade. They use less energy and are cool to the touch, avoiding the problem of scorching shades and ceilings.

Tell me about the components in the box?

The self adhesive lampshade panel is not just a piece of “sticky back plastic” It has been specially manufactured for lampshades and has many treatments including “Anti-Static” and “Anti Yellowing and is fire resistant. The frame included is made from top quality heavy gauge wire and is painted white. (Note rings will have a tiny uncoated spot where the ring has been hooked for spraying - this is not a fault) The double sided tapes included in the pack are from Tessa the World’s leading manufacturers of self-adhesive product, manufactured in Germany.


What about Product Testing and Safety?

The self adhesive lampshade panel has been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and has passed the glow wire test which is The British Standard for Luminaries. Any fabric, textile or paper that is laminated to our panel will become fire resistant.
