Adding outdoor wall lights to external areas of hotels, bars, restaurants or homes is not only an excellent way to add character to a building, but also can be instrumental in making the outdoor space feel safer and more secure.
Here at Lyco we have a vast range of outdoor lights available in many styles: from traditional lanterns for period properties, to modern metallic downlights with integrated LEDs suited to a more contemporary architectural style. Choosing wall lights that complement the style and type of venue will help enhance the ‘curb appeal’ of any establishment.
Adding wall lights to the entrance of hospitality venues or homes instantly makes them more welcoming to guests, not to mention easier to navigate at night. With many lights now coming with integrated LEDs as standard, you’re also able to pass on a cost saving to your customers. Not only do they require less maintenance over time, but LEDs also use less energy than traditional light fittings, and so help to reduce electricity bills. Opting for models with PIR sensors ensures that the luminaire isn’t on unnecessarily, which not only gives further energy efficiencies, but also acts as a security deterrent for any would-be intruders.
Some of our exterior lights, and especially those manufactured in stainless steel, are not recommended for use within 10 miles from the sea. Of those that are ‘coastal resistant’, you’ll find that many are Scandinavian-made. The Scandinavians are revered for their expertise in exterior lighting design, which is informed by the harsher climes that they live in. Rugged and good-looking materials such as galvanised steel and copper are typically used in coastal resistant lights, with an oft-varying finish that makes each product slightly different from the last.
