In ancient legend, it was Atlas who held the sky; strength and endurance were his most noted qualities. Legendary Lighting’s Atlas series is much like that of the ancient myth: With its antique appeal and exquisite design, no matter the setting, the Atlas is sure to hold the night sky.
The Atlas is our most traditional design, bringing with it a timeless essence to any architectural style it adorns. Granted the Atlas collection is well suited for any style architecture, it eloquently complements hip, shed and gabled roof lines. Often times referred to as a carriage light, the four-sided Atlas is a copper lantern that is a classic, timeless addition to any doorway, porte-cochere, or walkway; and being available with the flush mounted copper wall box, the Atlas can also combine traditional character with contemporary lines.
The Atlas series, just like most of the Legendary Lighting collections, is C.S.A. Certified, complying with ANSI Standard Z.21.42 for indoor or outdoor use. The Atlas is available in natural gas, propane or electronic configurations. Our electronic choices, which are UL Approved for dry, wet or damp locations, include single-bulb Edison base, CFLs, and, two-bulb or three-bulb candelabra clusters. Both natural gas and propane lanterns are available with an optional, state-of-the-art Electronic Ignition system which controls the lantern’s ignition by a light switch or photocell timer. Our tested and reliable Electronic Ignition system allows homeowners to easily control their lantern’s burn time and cut costs to have a product that is not only impressive but sustainable as well.
All of our Legendary Lighting collections come in three standard sizes. Our number one best-selling lantern is the Atlas I. This size is perfect for adorning an 8’ door and makes a beautiful welcoming statement as a post or column mount lantern illuminating a path or gateway. The Atlas II effortlessly enhances a 12’ entryway and accommodates where a bolder look is desired. The Atlas III is our estate sized lantern; its larger size and scale is well suited for a manor of elegance.
All of our gas and electric lanterns are available in post, column, wall or hanging mounts. The Atlas series, available in solid or glass top, has four wall mounting options: Our E-Z mount steel bracket, a solid copper mount designed for a flush finish (which is great for coastal climates), a wall mount yoke, or for a more ornate look, an iron Victorian bracket. In addition to our wall mounting options, we have decorative accessories that can be added for more profound looks; these options include a top scroll and choice of ring or finial tops. For hanging options, we offer a variety of length chain or yoke to extend proportionately to accentuate any space. For our ceiling mounts we offer a robust iron yoke mount or half-yoke mount, both reinforced for wind-stress and also a copper chain (only available in electric versions). To further prevent wind-stress, we have a patented Wind Guard to protect the flame from being extinguished in applications where Electronic Ignition cannot be utilized.
The Atlas is a perfect complement to any space it adorns, whether creating a statement in an entryway or elegantly lighting a path, the Atlas endures to keep hold of the night sky, just as the legend implies.
