Round Up: Lighting

A solution for “green” lighting
Kichler’s new line of LED lighting offers extended life at low voltage. The new series comprises eight accent lights, three deck lights, two step lights and a brick light. Each product has a lifespan of 40,000 hours of warm, white light. The eight LED accent lights are available in 3-, 6- and 9-watt varieties with beam spreads of 10, 35 and 60 degrees. Accents come in die-cast aluminum or solid brass housings.

Lighting for coastal climates
Hinkley Lighting introduces the Afterhours Coastal Series with lighting designed to withstand harsher coastal climates. The small coastal path light, model 1572 CO, is constructed of solid copper with a copper finish. This 12-volt path light is 5 inches wide by 16 inches tall and provides enough light to guide users without being obtrusive. Other features of the 1572 CO include a fully enclosed lamp and 10-foot lightspread.

Add Christmas lighting to your portfolio
Christmas decorations take time and energy for families looking to create the perfect holiday memory, but time can be too precious to spend hanging from ladders tacking lights to a roofline. Christmas Decor offers a solution for those families and for companies looking to get involved in the holiday decorating industry. An established company that provides professional products, pricing systems, business planning and year-round support, Christmas DĂ©cor offers franchising opportunities for landscapers.

Soft accent lighting with broad beam spread
The CM-890 from CopperMoon is a solid raw brass fixture used for accenting walls, signs and facades. A 6-inch by 4-inch oval, the CM-890 features a fish scale reflector shield inside to create a vast beam spread. The external eyebrow works to minimize exposure to the light source, while the frosted lens provides a soft yet powerful glow using either a MR-16 or JC series bi-pin lamp. In addition, customers are given the choice of which Ushio lamp, up to 50 watts, to pair with the fixture.

Waterproof underground connections
The DryConn DBG with SmartGel from King Innovation is designed to house underground connections for any lighting need. SmartGel is a non-toxic sealant used to protect the connection from water and corrosion. The semi-transparent housing allows for splice examination during and after installation. Other features include a max voltage of 50V and connection protection up to 221 degrees Fahrenheit. DBG with SmartGel also eliminates the need for materials like grease tubes, heat shrinks, primer tapes and epoxy packs.
