All our lamps are wired with a "Protective Earth" except in special cases where Bakelite lamp holders may be used and there is no metal components that could become an electrical safety hazard in event of a fault condition (in which case, a Protective Earth connection will be made).

For all of our fixed-wired lamps and pendants, we provide a 3-wire electrical termination point (Active, Neutral & Earth). A licensed electrician will be required to complete installation and appropriate testing in accordance with electrical standards.
