DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DEKOR™ announced today the introduction of new LED hardscape lights, an extension of its popular Millennium Collection. The new Hardscape Wall Light and Hardscape Corner Light have a simple elegance and smooth flowing edges, and are designed to complement retaining walls, brick or stone columns, and masonry. The new lights round out DEKOR’s product offerings for the masonry trades and are made in the USA.
“Our new LED wall and corner lights are robust, reliable, and address the needs of hardscape professionals,” said Duane McCall, president and CEO of DEKOR. “We expect these new LED wall lights will be adopted by landscape professionals just as aggressively as our Dek Dots™, which are widely recognized as the concrete industry’s go-to choice for in-ground lighting.”
DEKOR’s retaining wall and corner lights are professional grade, waterproof, and have high-strength, die-cast aluminum housings. The lights use DEKOR’s waterproof “Plug-N-Play” connector system, feature dimmable CREE LEDs, offer a simple bulb replacement mechanism and are designed to last for years even under adverse weather conditions. The high-strength aluminum housing is coated with an Alodine finish before receiving an epoxy primer and a powder coating to protect against corrosion. DEKOR provides a five-year warranty on the LED lights and a 10-year warranty on the housing and powder coating, which is applied at a thickness above industry standards.
Lighting contractor Marty Peluso, owner of Ornamental Lights in New Castle, Pennsylvania, said he prefers DEKOR lighting because it is made to order, doesn’t have the bluish cast of other LED lights and gives him versatility in his designs.
“I’m very excited about getting DEKOR’s new hardscape lights into my projects,” Peluso said. “The wall lights that have been on the market don’t disperse enough light, but DEKOR uses a bar application that disperses a maximum amount of light for a large area so it’s much brighter and more efficient.
“We recently put DEKOR LED lights that are no bigger than the size of a quarter in concrete around a pool to get the full effects of a traditional light,” he added. “In another project, we embossed walkways with DEKOR LEDs to eliminate the need for a bright stand-up light and I’ve even used them to light driveway edges through the snow.
“I’ve incorporated DEKOR products into almost every project I’ve done because I work with top-notch products and want top-notch results for our customers.”
It is this reputation for “top-notch” quality that has enabled DEKOR to build on its expertise in durable deck and outdoor lighting and expand into the landscape and hardscape lighting space with new products for landscaping professionals.
“Our new hardscape lights are 12-volt low-voltage fixtures with dimmable, warm white CREE LEDs that have a color temperature of 3200K – just right for creating the ambiance people want for their decks, yards and homes,” McCall said. “As a CREE LED Branding Partner, we have access to the latest LED technology, so our lights are highly efficient. Our hardscape wall light produces a full 240 lumens of light on 1.9 watts of power while our smaller corner light needs only 1.2 watts for operation. Both lights have a 120° beam angle for a generous light spread.”
DEKOR’s new hardscape lights are available through the company’s newly redesigned, easier-to-use website at www.dekorlighting.com.
Since opening its doors in 2001, DEKOR has grown from its roots as a premium baluster manufacturer into a leading designer and innovator of LED lighting products that transcend the deck industry.
