Restoration

Two sets of services are proposed: conservation and restoration.

Conservation consists in cleaning and making the item safe for usage, without touching the completion of the metal, or its integrity. Dealing with ancient heritage, objects belonging to private owners or museums, and giving it a new life without changing its essence is the exact goal of conservation.

We are also able to replenish an incomplete item, to repair a damaged one, to redo a decor: this is restoration work.

Our great experience has enabled our workshops of Montreuil and Pas-de-Calais (was known as Lustrerie Labaëre) to obtain the label EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), the certifications for the “Monuments Historiques” and the “Bâtiments de France”, and to become the suppliers to the Mobilier National, the ministries and Matignon.

According to insurers, electrical malfunction of luminaires is responsible for 1 out of 5 fires. Wooden, plastic or brass sockets, wires coated with plastic or cotton, bayonet sockets (B22 and B15) which are not in contact with the earth, all represent possible fire causes.

Bulbs which loosen or burn-out frequently are early signs of future problems. They should alert users to urgently consider changing the entire electrical system before any dramatic situation.

Upgrading an ancient luminaire to the new security norms is the perfect occasion to give it a new youth by cleaning and, if necessary, restoring it!

Our teams have the certifications and skills to work in height as well as on electrified material. We can transport, install and connect any type of luminaire, of all sizes and on all distances.

It is Jean Jacques LABAËRE, with his 30 years of experience in luminaire and restoration, who manages this activity with his team and his workshop at Vendin-le-Veil, close to Lens.
