Available from


Create your ideal SY-6 specification, with an Edison screw or Bayonet cap lamp holder, Clear or Frosted glass and a robust casing finished any way you fancy. The cage can also be purchased separately and fitted to existing SY-6 lights.







Our compact caged Bulkhead lights have a range of attractions that make them an adaptable choice for a range of settings, both indoors, and outdoors. What’s not to love?


The compact size, and flexible mounting points of the SY-6 allows them to be placed in both indoor, and outdoor settings. The cage now gives that extra piece of mind, protecting the glass diffuser against any knocks or flying debris in inclement weather. Place them outside on fence posts, along side passageways or up staircases - wherever soft yet reliable night lighting is desired. Indoors - introduce a nautical feel to your bathrooms, above basins and around mirrors.


Hand formed from steel wire and welded to a laser cut steel base, the SY-6 cage is very robust and rated to IK10. Each cage is treated to prevent rusting and painted to match the casing colour. If purchased separately, the cage can be easily added to the modular mounting lugs at the top and bottom of the casing.


The beautiful thick glass diffuser of each SY-6 bulkhead spreads a soft glow of light across any setting. Each light also comes with a ceramic lamp holder that can be fitted with a standard E27/ B22 fluorescent bulb, or even a smart bulb, for a remote light show!


The SY-6 lamp can be finished with a number of different options, to suit your flights of fancy, from chip resistant paint in a range of colours, to an industrial aluminium finish which simply has a clear, protective lacquer applied to achieve that raw, manufactured industrial look, creating an unique and distinct finish each time. And with our bespoke finishing service, you’ll also be able to specify a unique RAL colour, for powder coating.


Meet the rest of the family

The SY-6 collection has a number of relatives, with variations that include LED or fluorescent bulbs, and even an elegant corded table lamp. Select matching or complimentary pieces from the range, to build a harmonious lighting project.

The devil is in the details

The caged SY-6 has been put together with the kind of attention to detail that we’re famous for at J&G Coughtrie. Compact, corrosion-resistant and dependable it’s ideal for outdoor use where visibility is of the utmost importance.



The SY-6 Bulkhead lighting range has power connection cable access at both rear, top, and bottom - choose the option that tickles your fancy.


Mounted on the modular mounting lugs at the top and bottom of the light, this SY-6 Bulkhead comes fitted with a robust, hand-formed steel cage.


With a thick, hand pressed and blown glass diffuser that features decorative ribs, and a Coughtrie brand mark, this is one stylish range of light fittings that refuse to blend in with the riff raff. Available in Clear or Frosted Glass.


The simple, oval shape of the SY-6 Bulkhead light fitting is elegant and timeless yet fits with a range of different settings. One clever, and classy piece of glass.


The corrosion resistant aluminium casing of the SY-6 Bulkhead light fitting has been hand- cast by skilled craft workers in Glasgow. We’ve been doing it for 80 years, and we don’t intend to stop any time soon!


Your SY-6 can be supplied with a Bayonet Cap, or Edisson Screw lamp holder. You can also fit it with Smart Bulb, to connect the lamp to your smart home control system for a magical remote light show.
