CFL Pendant Light Fixtures with Ballast

CFL Pendant Light Fixtures with Ballast

Compact fluorescent lights are becoming the norm in residential and commercial lighting. This new technology offers increased energy efficiency and lower overall costs. Because of the unique way they work, compact fluorescent bulbs require a ballast, or special power regulator. Architect Design Lighting offers many CFL fixtures with ballasts.

Ordinary light fixtures can accept self-ballasted screw-base CFL bulbs, but to take advantage of the less expensive unballasted CFL lamps, you must install a light fixture with ballast built in. Our selection of CFL pendant lighting includes ballast light fixture styles that accept 4-pin compact fluorescent bulbs.

Equally at home in offices, warehouses, retail stores, restaurants, and homes, CFL pendant lighting combines eco-friendly efficiency with classic style. Each ballast light fixture is made in the USA. Choose from one of 22 colors to customize it to your design vision. For help choosing CFL fixtures, call customer service at (888) 320-0628.

In modern lighting systems, an increased focus on reducing energy consumption is turning Self Ballasted Shade designs for pendants into a new industry demand. For an attractive lighting solution that incorporates hanging CF lights or interior HID lights, take the complicated configurations out of the equation and consider a self ballasted interior light that comes with the tools already built in!

Supplied by Architect Design Lighting, this self ballasted interior light collection incorporates sleek cone and Warehouse Shade styles suited to a range of design aesthetics. With their fun floating appearance, pendants are a great alternative to run-of-the-mill ceiling fixtures.

Also, as a sleek alternative to traditional table or floor lamps, pendant lights with ballasts are a keen way to bump up design power while simultaneously choosing a commercial lighting fixture that will meet future industry requirements. Hanging lights add unique character and also free your project from the limitations of surface placements - no table or shelf space required.

Self Ballasted Shade designs come in various styles with custom options, viewable in further detail within each individual product description:

  • Choice of 22 color and finish types, 4 at no additional cost (black, white, dark green, galvanized steel)
  • Assorted mounting options in cord or stem (1/2" and 3/4" aluminum NPT pipe) varieties

Pendant lights with ballasts are best suited to indoor use, but with available stem mounting options, interior HID lights or CF fixtures can become functional and attractive outdoor hanging CF lights in damp applications. Also, traditional incandescent configurations are still made available for some styles, although purchasers of these fixtures are typically designers or architects with projects aimed at reduced energy consumption (please click on individual product descriptions for more details).

For further customization of self ballasted hanging lights, we also offer secondary options available for pricing and order through customer service:

  • Decorative supplements including grills, lenses, wire guards and refractors
  • Alternate globe shapes and finishes

Availability of options will vary between different styles of interior lights with ballasts, and are subject to additional cost. An Architect Design Lighting representative can assist you in individual project consultation.
