The heavy wall cast bronze lighting fixtures that we sell are manufactured by Pauluhn Electric. Because of their experience and long history, Pauluhn Electric is the most highly regarded manufacturer of these particular fixtures. Many companies have tried to develop similar products made of composites and other less expensive materials. Some of these are good for certain applications, but non of them have survived the test of time in a corrosive salt air marine environment like cast bronze.
