Our Patented Steel Structure Keeps You Safe. For each chandelier we construct an internal frame of 3/8" to 1"diameter steel that is hand forged and hammer struck to shape. This frame strengthens the structure of the chandelier, conceals all wiring inside and also has the mounting point for the steel 900 pound test chain. You can then connect the chain directly to your solid beam or ceiling application. This allows for the weight of the antler chandelier to be on the steel frame not the unstable antler bone structure. This type of frame and hanging application also allows for the use of a (customer supplied) chandelier remote winch that allows you to remotely raise and lower your chandelier for service and maintenance.
All Antlers Offered By SAF Are Natural AA Grade, first quality and gathered from the Great Northwoods immediately after they have been naturally shed (not left through a winter or eaten by rodents then body puttied back to shape). We never use seconds, fake or faux antlers of any kind. We use antlers from the great American North-woods region because the calcium deposits are abundant and results in higher quality more structural antlers.
All Antlers Offered By SAF Are Wired Internally And U.L. Listed. Using a 1/4" thick steel central wire enclosure that is attached to the steel main structure we secure each antler end individually to this super structure. We then bore through each lighted horn to run our wiring internally. This allows for each light socket and wire to be able to be replaced with little effort. All SAF lighting is hipot tested according to the rigorous rules and guide lines of Underwriters Laboratories. After passing this test they may carry a UL seal of approval. These seals are recognized by building code inspectors the world over.
