LC DBM Product Preview June 2018 19 Factory Direct Landscape Lighting VOLT Lighting Why should the sun determine when homeowners can go outside and appreciate the beauty of their homes? By installing a landscape lighting system, homeowners can enjoy their outdoor space, day or night – while also increasing home security, accentuating architectural and landscap - ing features, and illuminating potential hazards. Low-voltage landscape lighting installation is a great service for contractors to offer, as little training and no electrical certifications or licenses are required. For the past decade, VOLT ® Lighting has specialized in professional grade, low-volt - age outdoor lighting. Thousands of positive reviews affirm the quality of its products, excellence of its customer support and value of its factory-direct business model. VOLT ® products go straight to the contrac- tor without needless middlemen, lowering costs dramatically. Fixture quality is of the utmost impor - tance when designing a landscape light- ing system. Lower quality lights from big suppliers or retailers may reduce the initial cost, but they often fail and force the con - tractor to buy and reinstall replacements. This hurts the contractor's reputation and lowers profits. Avoid this by thoroughly researching fixtures prior to purchase. A high-quality landscape lighting fixture will be constructed of solid cast brass - not alu - minum, which oxidizes and corrodes over time, with painted finishes that flake and chip. Brass will patinate, but the quality of the construction is never compromised and most agree the patina enhances its beauty. The switch from halogen to LED bulbs as the go-to light source was a major change in landscape lighting. The initial cost of halogens may be lower, but the energy sav - ings of LEDs (usually over 80% less energy consumption) combined with decades-long lifespans make LEDs a much more cost-ef - fective choice overall. However, many LED lamps from big box stores lack key features for damp outdoor environments, such as a conformal coating to protect the LEDs' moisture-sensitive circuitry - the most fre - quent point of failure for landscape lighting LEDs. Specifically designed for landscapes, VOLT ® outdoor LEDs are known as "The Forever Bulb" due to 40,000-hour lifespans and industry-leading lifetime warranties. Unlike many competitors, VOLT ® de- signs all products in-house at its Innovation Lab, resulting in some truly pioneering de - signs such as the VOLT ® 2-in-1 Tiki-Brass Torch Light, which puts a modern twist on the traditional Polynesian torch. This one-of-a-kind solid brass fixture combines the beauty of a natural flame with the practicality of a G4 Bi-Pin for area lighting. Perfect for creating a tropical ambiance on decks and docks, the Tiki-Brass Torch Light features a reservoir for citronella oil to keep away pesky bugs. With unsurpassed quality, innovative designs, competitive pricing, fast shipping and top-notch customer support available 7 days a week, VOLT ® is the premier destination for any landscape lighting need. Introduce VOLT ® fixtures to your custom- ers and help them expand their living spaces into the night. VOLT ® Lighting 813-978-3700 Information Request # 421 LC/DBM PRODUCT PREVIEW
