Lighting Fixture Restoration for State House

Lighting Fixture Restoration for State House
Boston
Massachusetts

This chandelier conservation project involved the center lighting fixture in the Senate Reception Chamber. We focused on cleaning the metalwork and its glass globes. We were asked to simultaneously rectify a persistent short circuit problem associated with the lights within the globes. We discovered that manipulation of the fixtures caused them to make contact with the metal frame which held the globes. As a solution, we injected each metal frame with non flammable foam, which secured the fixture and prevented it from moving.  This solved the problem.
