Specifications, installation instructions and CAD files can be found here to help you configure your installation. Our chandeliers are designed to work in concert with the outlines of the interior, so we encourage design professionals to incorporate our drawings into theirs early on in the design process, such that the chandeliers and the space enter into fruitful dialogue.
Specifications and Installation Instructions
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the diameter of the glass pendant?
The diameter ranges from 5.5-7.5” . The variance is a result of the process, as these are blown individually by humans in our glass blowing atelier in Vancouver.
Can I specify how many “bubbles” I want?
There will always be a milk white glass “bubble” to house the lamp but the clear ones will always vary from one to three—this cannot be specified, nor can the location but trust that your 28 series chandelier will truly be one of a kind.
Can I have custom coloured pendants?
Yes. Custom coloured pendants come with an up charge. Please note there may be slight variations in the colours of the glass.
Are the pendant heights adjustable?
You can adjust the heights on the 28.1 and 28.3 the other chandeliers have preset lengths that you specify.
How do I measure the heights for the larger chandeliers?
From the underside of the canopy (which has a depth of 2”) to the underside of the pendant (an average of 6" diameter).
What wattage of lamp does the 28 series take?
The 28 takes 20Watt lamps—don’t forget your dimmer!
How do I re-lamp these pendants?
You simply untwist the pendant from the connection hardware, change the lamp, and twist the pendant back on.
What do the chandeliers weigh?
You can find all the weights listed on our spec sheets to the left.
Is this a low voltage chandelier? If so, what is the voltage?
Yes, the voltage is 12V.
Are transformers included?
How many pendants can you put on one transformer?
One Bocci transformer can power from 1 to 3 pendants (using 20watt xenon lamps).
Are lamps included?
Yes. You can purchase replacement lamps here.
Not all my 28 pendants look exactly alike, is this normal?
Yes, each pendant is hand made thus making it different and unique from the rest. We celebrate this uniqueness at Bocci as this is a sign that yours is literally one of a kind.
Can these chandeliers be dimmed?
Yes, they can be dimmed, and in fact we recommend it. Dimming not only allows you to change the effect and the intensity of the chandelier it also makes the lamps last up to twice as long. You will need to purchase a low voltage electronic dimmer to make this possible.
What are the canopy finishes?
The 28.1 comes with a brushed nickel canopy. All other standard 28 series canopies are white powder coated.
My lamps keep flickering on and off, why is this happening?
Every complaint like this has been solved by replacing the existing halogen lamps with our xenon lamps. The filament in the xenon lamps is much heartier and does not fracture or break due to movements in the building. This is why we do not recommend or sell halogen lamps.
Why do you recommend remote mounting the transformers?
We recommend this for ease of maintenance down the line as transformers have a finite life.
Do your transformers hum or buzz?
Are your transformers electronic or magnetic?
What are your lead times?
For all of our standard chandeliers our lead times are 1-3 days from receipt of payment in full. Our custom chandeliers have a lead time of approximately 3 weeks from receipt of signed shop drawings. Shop drawings are issued once we have a confirmed PO and 50% deposit. The remaining 50% is due prior to shipping.
Can I hang these chandeliers on a sloped ceiling?
Yes, you can hang our chandeliers on a gently sloped ceiling of 15 degrees or less. If it is a steeper slope it can also be done but there may be other restrictions in terms of the pendant configuration—please contact Bocci for steep ceiling applications.
Can I get a different canopy finish outside of the standard option?
Yes. We can custom powder coat to match RAL colour codes. We also offer a stainless steel canopy. Both of these options come with an up-charge.
