A wall lamp is mounted on the wall. Often a wall lamp with mounting box comes as an end to the wall lamp. The mounting box is typically delivered in the same color as the lampshade and can be screwed onto the wall via the included brackets. The mounting box can be supplied with a switch so that the lamp can be switched on or off individually. The wall lamp comes with an arm that is either 10, 20 or 30 cm and is usually painted in the same color as the lampshade.
Wall lamps are also delivered without an extension arm but with a 2,5 cm spacer, so the total length of the lamp remains short. These lamps are typically used as bedside lamps, lamps by the sofa, armchair, etc. On the arm are mounted so-called tilt-joints, which make it possible to turn the screen in all directions. The tilt joint is not painted and is available in chrome or brass.
If the classic design wall lamp is used as indirect light, which means that you use the reflection from the light wall to light up the room, it is recommended to use wall lamps with a 20 cm arm and direct the center of the light beam towards the floor panel. If the wall lamp is used for spot lighting, e.g. lighting of a painting, there is more freedom in choosing arm length. It is not recommended to place the wall lamp so that the screen has to be turned upwards, as this will often create glare in the room. If this can not be avoided or the location creates glare, it is recommended to choose a narrow-beam design lamps such as. Cannon series. If the wall lamp is not turned towards the wall, it is recommended to check the glare from the light source and in case of glare it is recommended to choose a lamp with a ring.
Outdoor wall lamps are often delivered without a distance arm or with a very short arm, as the risk of destruction is greater outdoors and the need for control of the light is limited.
