Reminiscent of by-gone days, but with all the modern details of a contemporary lighting fixture, our Barn Light series of gooseneck lights are all commercial grade aluminum fixtures suitable for any exterior or interior application. Available in over 20 colors each fixture is a build to suit item. As a result, you have the flexibility to mix and match different shade and arm styles, colors, optional accessories or power sources. Optional wire guards and glass globes are very popular add on features for barn lights, sold separately, these accessories add the old fashion flair of barn lights of the past. After you place your order, your fixtures will be made to your specifications and then shipped immediately upon completion.
When used for illuminating signage a good rule of thumb is one fixture for every 3 to 4 feet of sign width. Other factors such as ambient lighting, placement of the light fixture, sign colors, gooseneck shade size and bulb wattage will all combine to determine overall luminance and coverage area.
Each gooseneck barn light comes with a 4 5/8" diameter round aluminum wall mount back plate and a medium base incandescent ceramic socket wired for 120V service. All back plates have mounting holes that are 3-1/2" on center to allow installation over any standard 4" diameter outdoor recessed (flush mounted) round or octagonal Junction box. Mounting options will vary for photocell sensors, compact fluorescent or metal halide ballasts. Call for details.
The aluminum back plates, gooseneck arms and shades are all powder coated to match the color of your choice (please note: the "inside" of each shade is powder coated White for maximum reflectivity). Each Barn Light gooseneck fixture is UL listed (US and Canada) and designed for durability as well as many years of worry free operation.
Note: The maximum incandescent wattage for gooseneck barn light fixtures is based on shade size:
12" diameter shades up to 100W incandescent bulb (not included)
16" diameter shades up to 200W incandescent bulb (not included)
18" diameter shades up to 200W incandescent bulb (not included)
Typical bulb type/size is PAR20 for 12" and PAR20 or PAR30 for 16" and 18" dia. shades. The "PAR" style floodlight bulbs can easily be found at your neighborhood home improvement center or local hardware store. If you order your Barn Light with a glass globe and/or a wire-guard other incandescent bulb types/sizes may be required or preferred based on your personal preferences.

Survey and Installation instructions for Gooseneck fixtures
Survey installation area prior to ordering/installing light fixtures
- Does local code or landlord allow for this style of light to be installed at desired location?
- Is there sufficient clearance above, below or adjacent to the installation location to accommodate sweep and projection of gooseneck arm and shade?
- Most gooseneck light fixtures are designed to be installed directly on top of a recessed standard Round or Octagonal Junction box. Are the junction boxes in the desired location? If the junction box(es) are located behind the wall or off to one side are the lead lengths coming out of the fixture long enough to reach? These fixtures can be ordered with longer lead lengths - call for details.
- Will the shade, at installed location/elevation, be directing its light at the desired spot on the sign face or wall surface? (if not can the mounting plate location be changed to compensate? Please note, an optional swivel coupling is available that will allow for the shade to be swiveled up/down to more precisely direct the light - call for details)
- Do you have a sufficient number of fixtures to light your sign? The general rule of thumb is one fixture for every 3' to 4' of sign width (tall signs may also require fixtures above and below the sign for proper illumination). Size of shade, length of arm, sign artwork and sign size/shape must be considered when determining number of fixtures required. If you are uncertain as to what will be required for your project please call and well be happy to help advise on your options.
