Step lights - Safety lighting is a must!
One of the main objectives of step lights and deck lights
is to add safety and security to your outdoor steps and staircases.
Brands like Hadco, Focus and many other quality lighting
manufacturers make step light fixtures for patio and deck areas
and there are several decorative options to choose from. Materials
such as stamped aluminum, cast aluminum, and unfinished copper/brass
options include all weather resistance as well as providing attractive
outdoor lighting fixtures.
Types and styles of step lighting fixtures
Styles of step fixture lights can include: face plates with back
boxes designed to be installed flush into step and brick surfaces.
These can be commercial step fixtures that are long rectangular
or square in shape. Other light fixture shapes are round and fan-
shaped, with an attractive dimension, differing a little from the
completely flat stair fixtures first mentioned.
You can find a variety of step lighting fixtures, both for 12volt
low voltage landscape lighting systems and regular 120 volt systems
as well, online. For low voltage stair lights, run cables along
or under the existing structure to reduce clutter. Consider placing
fixtures under benches for a clean, inconspicuous look. All changes
in elevation in the landscape, deck, steps, terraces and edges should
be illuminated for safety.
