Benefits of Bolt-Down

Security without foregoing design

Let’s talk about bolt-down interior products and the benefits of requesting this additional feature for your next portable luminaire. 


"Bolt-down products are very underrated, they're a powerhouse fixture when it comes to security and design.”

First things first, what does bolt-down even mean? 

As it sounds, bolt down refers to a light fixture being mechanically fastened and secured to its placement, whether that’s a table, the floor, concrete, the list goes on. Most of the time this will require an additional component to be used in between the fixture and its placement, however sometimes it can be screwed directly onto the placement – this will depend on the placement. 


Now that we know what bolt-down means, let’s talk about some of the benefits of securing interior products. 


1. Anti-theft

Securing your light fixture to its placement will ensure that it cannot be picked up and removed. This might be especially important for the hospitality sector.


2. Design is in-tact

You might be thinking that bolting down a fixture would ruin its aesthetic, however that couldn’t be further from the truth. In actuality, bolted down products can enhance the design by strategically hiding the wiring for the fixture through the piece that the luminaire is bolted to.


3. Structural integrity

Bolting down a luminaire could also provide structural integrity to the structure, table, or fixture. Some installations have the fixtures bolt down/recessed mounted so the fixture is part of the structure. 

Bolt-down luminaires are especially beneficial and popular for a few different sectors, specifically hospitality locations, restaurants and public settings.


In the hospitality sector, bolt-down fixtures would be an ideal choice for settings like beside tables in hotel rooms. 

In restaurants, securing portable lights to dining tables will restrict the movement and limit the possibility of theft.

A very popular setting for bolt-down fixtures is academic. Universities, libraries and communal educational applications often find that they want to secure a fixture in place for direct task lighting, while ensuring that the fixture cannot be moved.

Lastly, in public settings a bolt-down fixture would be a great choice for libraries, airports, train terminals, and so on. This allows for the best of both worlds in terms of providing task lighting for users, while still securing the fixture to limit the possibility of theft.

Now that we have you convinced that a bolt-down fixture is a great option, let’s talk about the Zaneen products that are applicable for this request.
