12 Volt Lighting, a leading online source of low voltage outdoor lighting and LED landscape lighting, has announced that they now offer LED outdoor deck lighting products from top manufacturers, such as Orbit, Corona, Kichler, Hinkley and more. These products join 12 Volt Lighting’s already extensive line of outdoor lighting systems, including solar lighting, 12 volt deck lighting and 12 volt outdoor path lighting products, such as flood lights, spotlights, in-ground well products, hanging lights and more.
Outdoor decks are gaining in popularity for parties, family meals or just relaxing in the sun. But when the sun goes down, many decks lose their usefulness because they lack lighting. Outdoor deck lighting extends the usability of the deck, improves its appearance and creates a safe and pleasant atmosphere for entertaining or relaxing on a warm evening. But many homeowners hesitate to take on the expense and trouble of hiring a contractor to install lighting.
LED outdoor lighting provides a cost effective way to improve visibility outside the home and enhance the aesthetic design of yards and decks. These low-voltage lighting systems are easy for non-professionals to design and install, and most building codes do not require the use of a professional contractor for installation. Most 12 volt outdoor lighting systems can be installed in a matter of hours, using simple hand tools such as screwdrivers and wire cutters, and many manufacturers provide detailed, easy-to-follow instruction guides. Low voltage lighting products are also safer than 120-volt systems, offer great design flexibility and can withstand wet or moist environments.
Outdoor deck lighting can be used on most surfaces and are available in flush mounted or surface mounted models. Surface mounted products can be installed without creating large holes in the wall or deck surface. Flush-mounted models require that a hole be cut to insert the fixture.
Outdoor deck lighting fixtures are available in plastic, aluminum, brass, stainless steel and copper, in a wide variety of designs and configurations for perimeter lighting, illumination of walls and railings, floor lighting, pathway lighting, accent lights and hanging lights. Each deck lighting system uses a self contained transformer that plugs into a standard house electrical outlet.
12 Volt Lighting provides online assistance in the selection and design of the right system for your needs, including choosing the proper transformer, wire and connectors to complete your outdoor deck lighting project quickly and easily. The company was founded by a landscaping contractor who was frustrated by repeated problems in ordering outdoor landscape lighting and wanted to simplify the process. Shopping online with 12 Volt Lighting is fast and easy, and all transactions are protected by a secure online shopping cart system.
