Q: Can you please tell me more about the electrical work involved to install your lights?
A: Our lights comes as standard ready to hard wire behind the painting. This is normally a recessed electrical outlet (clock boxes) or you may have wires hanging out of the wall and if this is the case it is easy to install our lights. You may be happy to attach a longer cable to the nearest wall outlet.
If you do not have recessed outlets a residential electrical contractor could install recessed electrical outlets (clock boxes) behind each painting.
Hogarth have an invisible wire system and a battery option as alternatives.
Q: How does your light fix to the painting?
A: We have a small bracket that is screwed to the frame or the wall, the light slides into this bracket so you can hang your painting and fit the light when it is on the wall.
Q: You say you are offering ï¿½Breakthrough Technologyï¿½, what can you tell me about that?
A: Our technology is truly breakthrough;
Q: What sizes of paintings can you light?
A: Our lights adjust to illuminate from 10 to 60 inches. If you have larger paintings, it is possible to fit extra lights.

95% of paintings ever painted fall within the capability of the Hogarth Light.
Q: You have a very unique bulb. How long will it last?
A: Our LED bulbs last 10 years and run on 7 volts so they are very ecconomical to operate. Halogen bulbs are branded and have a life of 2000 to 3000 hours and are readily available in most electrical shops.

A: Simply re adjust the Hogarth Light to suit.
