Manufacturing at Dahlhaus Lighting
Quality "Made in Germany"
historic artisanship is one of our main goals. During
the manufacturing of our products, the craftspeople
use historic tools and authentic procedures whenever
Our products are made of the finest available quality.
90% of the products are hand-made from solid Sand-Cast
Aluminum. This method of casting is the original and
historic way. The molds are pressed in special sand
which is then filled with liquid aluminum.
This process guarantees
an authentic look and feel of the product. Through
this method we are able to achieve a 'slightly
imperfect' product surface which gives the lanterns,
mailboxes and other products their historic look.
Because of the traditional manufacturing, our
products are of substantial weight. They feel
solid and heavy and are “made for eternity”.
We also use other special techniques during the
manufacturing process which are proof of the outstanding
quality, such as:
• permanently elastic glass sealant
• multiple paint coatings
• hand applied patina
We are proud to offer a large variety of customization
options. Since the manufacturing process and the
casting of most of the products is traditional
hand-work, we can satisfy most of our customer
wishes – may it be color options (“different patina”),
new designs (“mixed and matched” from original
parts) or other requirements.
