• Outdoor Lighting Features: Special features found in Outdoor Lighting that enhance a fixture's performance and functionality.
NON CORROSIVE: The fixture features a finish that will not deteriorate over time in harsh environmental conditions, such as marine climate, inclement weather, and high heat exposure.
MOTION SENSOR: The fixture has a built-in sensor which allows it to operate automatically when motion is detected within its proximity.
PHOTOCELL/ DUSK TO DAWN: The fixture has a built in photocell which allows it to automatically turn off when natural light is detected. In the evening, when the sun has gone down, the fixture will automatically turn on again.
There are 3 distinct ratings to familiarize yourself with: dry, damp, and wet. Dry locations: Areas where any dampness that occurs can be easily compensated for by ventilation, such as kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms. Damp locations: Areas where some moisture and condensation can build up, normally bathrooms. Wet locations: Areas where water or liquids may drip, such as open decks, stairwells, and patios.
The color of light, expressed in Kelvins (K). The sun is about 5800 Kelvins. This is called a "temperature," because the hotter fire gets, the more it changes from a warm yellow glow to white.
The lower the Kelvin rating, such as the common incandescent/tungsten bulb, the warmer, softer and more yellow the light. The higher the K number, the cooler, whiter and bluer the light.
