When Capitol Lighting receives a lighting fixture that needs restoration, the condition can range from a well-maintained light that only needs to be cleaned and rewired to a fixture that has been damaged in some way. The damage can range from wear due to usage to a fixture damaged in a fire.
Here is an example of the process we employ to restore fixtures:
(Please Note: Every piece is different and may need a modified process.)
This is a fixture from the Chicago Field Museum. It fell from the ceiling and was heavily damaged. As you can see it remained mostly in one piece. Capitol Lighting is dedicated to preserving the authenticity of all lighting projects and took special care to preserve as much of the original lighting fixture as possible.
After repairing the metalwork and fully cleaning the fixture, new wiring and sockets are installed to replace the aged ones. The fixture is brought to electrical code and is tested for reliability. Skilled workers do all this with a background in restoration and lighting industries.
Every step is taken to guarantee that the fixture is properly restored and remains lit for the duration of its life. The completed fixture is then inspected one final time before delivery.
Reflecting the cost of the fixture, very special care is taken in packaging the finished product for shipping.
The completed fixture is re-hung and wired into the preexisting circuit.
