Canopies are lamp parts used to cover ceiling boxes. They can also be used as backplates for wall sconces. On occassion, by drilling side holes they can be used to hang glass with bead chain. Canopies come in 2 types: Center Lockups uses a screw collar loop and Cross Bar Lockups that have holes spaced either 4'' center to center or 2-3/4" center to center. Canopies can be made of stamped steel, stamped brass or brass casting or die cast white metal.
Canopies are decorative parts that are used to cover unsightly ceiling boxes, though they can also be used as backplates for wall fixtures and sconces. Because their purpose is to improve the manner with which a light fixture or lamp blends in with its surroundings, canopies come in styles that range from the simple and austere to those that are elaborate and highly detailed. Canopies can also be categorized by how they are attached to a ceiling or other lamp parts, with Center Lockups utilizing screw collar loops and Cross Bar Lockups making use of 2-3/4'' center to center or 4" center to center holes. Beyond the various styles in which they can be crafted and the two main methods used to attach them to walls and fixtures, canopies can also be manufactured using die cast white metal, brass castings, and stamped brass or steel.
