With the boom in outdoor room construction and high-end hardscapes continuing, the need for small, robust hardscape fixtures is a given. Kichler Lighting offers one of the best options on the market.
- Four different lengths.
- Six finish colors.
- Two Kelvin temperatures – 2700 or 3000. The lower the number, the warmer (more yellow) it looks; 2700K is more incandescent looking while 3000K is a crisp, white light.)
- Three different mounting options are available: screws, stainless steel flat mount bracket (for existing construction) and stainless steel plate bracket (for under capstones/new construction). These options allow for easy installation on new and existing walls, rails, steps, etc.
- Fully encapsulated electronics ensure that the fixtures are robust and will stand the test of time.
Since LED hardscape fixtures have a very low load coupled with a 9 – 15 volt range, it’s entirely possible to connect every single fixture on a single wire run of 12/2 wire (max of 192 watts). If you use a smaller gauge wire inside the masonry, make sure to confirm its wattage capacity so it doesn’t get overloaded by accident. Use the fixture’s VA (Volt Amp) number to calculate the load on the wire as well as the transformer.
(Photos not to scale; all hardscape fixtures are available with and without brackets.)
