What’s the best globe material type to use for a LED light source?
In the past, acrylic or polycarbonate have traditionally been used. However, recent advancements in resins have resulted in a new diffuse acrylic material referred to as LED Acrylic (Visual Comfort).
This new acrylic greatly reduces the sharp pixilation effect often associated with LED diodes.
How do I measure the diameter of a round globe?
The easiest way is to stand the globe vertical on the floor against a flat surface, such as a wall. At the same time, using another flat surface such as a book, stand it vertical against the outside edge of the globe.
Measure the inside measurement (I.D.) between the wall and book. Generally, the globe will measure under-size. If the inside measurement is for example 11″ it is considered a 12″ globe for ordering purposes. Globes are offered in even increments of inches.
Is the inside diameter of a post top fitter (globe holder) generally the same measurement as the outside diameter of the globe?
No. Generally the I.D (inside diameter) of a globe holder will be approx. 1″ larger/oversize than the O.D. (outside diameter) of the globe itself.
Example: If the I.D. measurement of the globe holder is approximate 9″, it will accept a globe with an approximate neck diameter of around 8″.
