• LANTERNS SHOULD MEASURE 1/4 THE HEIGHT OF THE DOOR

PERFECT FIT
SIZING GUIDELINES : OUTDOOR LANTERNS
Selecting the right-sized outdoor lantern can sometimes pose a challenge. Follow these sizing guidelines for a fit that's just right.


The height of an outdoor lantern should be based on the height of the door:
  • DON'T UNDERSIZE YOUR LANTERNS : As a rule of thumb, your lanterns should appear to be proportionate to the size of your door from 50' away.
  • FOR 1 LANTERN: If you place a lantern on only one side of the door, it should measure one-third the height of the door. The center of the bulb should rest 66" above the threshold of the door.
  • FOR 2 LANTERNS: When two lanterns are used, they should each measure approximately one-fourth the height of the door. The center of the bulb should rest 66" above the threshold of the door.
TIP: In either case, if you choose a fixture with a long tail or top scroll, pay attention to the overall bulk of the fixture.
TIP: When in doubt, always go larger.
