Poor Quality on the Finish
I ordered 8 of these for a townhome complex in a coastal community. I opened the first box, and noticed gray blotches around the sides of the fixture where the black rubber seal was glued. I opened four more boxes, and found the same thing on each, with some much worse than others. After trading emails with technical staff at the manufacturer, and finding one fixture with a very prominent flaw, it was determined that excess glue had been applied to the rims, which caused it to drip down the sides of the fixtures. They could not come up with a solution to remove the glue, which had dried to an extremely hard, almost baked-on finish. Very poor quality control to let these pass out of the factory for distribution with such an obvious poor finish. The mfg promised to address the issue in the future, but current stock that is out there is probably of poor quality also. I returned all of the fixtures and am ordering a similar style fixture from Design Classics. Slightly more expensive, but hopefully of better quality.
