Outdoor lighting Carries Atmosphere into Commercial Spaces
Commercial outdoor lighting provides safety and comfort
Outdoor lighting is vital to any successful outdoor project. Not only is lighting needed to see past dark, but it provides a needed safety feature that can prevent falls, reduce crime, and create ambiance. Contractmagazine offers bright ideas for designers to choose the best outdoor lighting to fit a variety of project types, including education, retail, healthcare, hospitality, office, and public spaces. Not only is outdoor lighting needed to enter and exit the building, but it is an important part of any outdoor patio, corridor, garden, or roof deck. Outdoor lighting fixtures need to be able to hold up to exterior conditions which will vary by region and include rain, snow, heat, humidity, high wind, sleet, and direct sunlight. Because these fixtures house electrical equipment it is important that they are safely able to stand up to harsh weather conditions.
But just because commercial outdoor lighting needs to be sturdy, does not mean it needs to be short on style, as many designer outdoor lighting options are available from top lighting companies. Outdoor lighting encompasses a wide variety of architectural lighting and outdoor fixtures including pendant lights, sconces, downlights, garden lights, pathway lights, tabletop lights, spotlights and more. Some of the top outdoor lighting manufactures are Philips/Lightolier, Artemide, Focal Point, Lithonia Lighting, Cooper, Louis Poulsen, Zumtobel, Boyd Lighting, Visa, Flos, Juno Lighting, and 3M Architectural Markets. Contract magazine is committed to bringing our readers the latest and greatest outdoor lighting products from many top brands.
