Custom Round Shade
What Type of Shade Fitting Do You Need?
Spider and Washer with Harp – This is the most common type of fitting for table and floor lamp shades. It comes in two varieties. Industry Standard 1/2" washer and (for specific applications) Standard 1/2" washer with a cut out.
Uno – Attaches to the socket below the light bulb. The UNO fitter is a 'pressure fit' onto the brass socket (no clamping nut on threads). Comes in a threaded (for pendants) and non-threaded (for table lamps).
Euro – Attaches to the socket below the light bulb. The Euro fitter fits over the threading and is 'clamped down' by a nut screwing over the threads. Can be a pendant or a table lamp.
Clip-On – This type comes in two sizes: (1) smaller for candle bulbs found on accent lamps and chandeliers and (2) larger for the standard Edison bulbs. Clip-on lamp shades clip directly onto the light bulb with no additional hardware.
Specialty – Chimney Rings (made to sit over/around tall glass chimneys) and Reflector Bowl Notches (made to sit on top of glass reflector bowl) can also be manufactured. Please notate the diameter or give us a call to discuss.
