Outdoor Lighting

Making the most of outdoor space A

Switch on to growing consumer interest in outdoor lighting, says Shyel Stark, Product Manager at lighting specialist Luceco.

s summer draws to a close, your customers may begin to talk to you about outdoor lighting and how to

make the most out of their gardens and patios. The darker nights create an opportunity to upsell lighting solutions outside of the home. Investing time in gaining an understanding about outdoor lighting options and current trends, could see contractors increase project spend and referrals. Here are some key products that can help transform an outdoor space, for your customers.

1. Luceco’s exterior decorative garden spike light has an adjustable head for up lighting and spot lighting and can help to direct users through garden pathways, as well as creating a different atmosphere at night time. 2. This fixed stainless steel wall light is stylish and unobtrusive in the garden. Always point lights away from the general line of sight and use solutions such as glare cowls and louvres on spotlights. 3. Rather than picking several elements to illuminate at night, try choosing one feature, for example a tree or pathway to guide people in the garden. The Solar Guardian wall lantern can be fitted in areas without mains electricity to ensure that lighting can be installed where needed rather than where the electricity supply is.

Solar, so good Gone are the days when the only available solar lights are ones that would only last a few weeks before fading away into darkness. With the advances in technology and Luceco’s ongoing product development, functional solar lighting like the Luceco Solar Guardian range are fast becoming a top seller.

Many electrical contractors are now offering a solution to outdoor lighting requests by purchasing solar as an upsell at the end of their installations, to help home and building owners light areas that would have previously required a lot of effort to run cable around and maintain weather protection seals. The darker nights bring with them the perfect

opportunity for electrical contractors to recommend more sophisticated yet affordable outdoor lighting solutions to their customers.
