Mek-Elek Founded in 1931 Mek-Elek Engineering Ltd specialised in the manufacture of high intensity industrial lighting equipment, the Mekelite industrial lighting units were available in a wide range of types and sizes for floor, bench, wall and ceiling. Mek-Elek specialised in the manufacture of the Mekelite lathe light, primarily for use within the aircraft industry. The joints of the arms give a complete 360° movement and protect the cab-tyre cable from being nipped when the arms are moved. A swivelling head which protects the lampholder from accidents and blows also relieves it from mechanical stresses. A design icon and true classic when it comes to early industrial lighting.
