If you have gone all out and purchased the largest size of pool table available, a 9 foot model, or if you have a large snooker table, then you need more light. Having a well lit pool table can be the difference between seeing the shot you want to make accurately and sinking it, or not seeing it well and missing.
Any of the choices from the 4 Pack lighting series will get you that extra light your large table needs. All you have to do is choose the style that works best for you and your home. Considering the many attractive and varied models available to you it is certain that you will find the right one.
To meet World-Pool Billiard Association rules they must be hung at least 40 inches above the playing surface, from the tip of the shade to the cloth felt of your table, to a maximum of 65 inches above. If you’ve bought a table that needs lights like these the chances are good that you’re a serious pool player and should follow these rules. For casual players, 32 to 42 inches above the playing surface is acceptable.
These light have to be made from sturdy materials to support the extra weight and accommodate the increased length. You can choose from:
These are all strong enough to last for years as they support your large lighting fixture.
With 4 shades hanging across your pool table instead of the usual 3, you had better be sure this very prominent and repeating design feature is right for your room. Fortunately you have many options for shade colours and materials. Your basic colour choices are:
The solid brass and stained glass models are two truly striking options that will be a conversation starter. They demand the attention of any eye in the room for at least a moment. The other colour and finish choices are all excellent options. Your selection of them depends on the colour scheme of your room and how you want everything to work together.
The big deal here is size. These lights are typically 82 inches in length. Be sure to measure this length out and check if you need lights this long. If they hang off the sides of your pool table and light the floor you are not doing anyone any favours. This type of design flaw detracts from the look of your billiards table.
