The outdoors just got a bit brighter. Trex Company, the world's largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, has announced the debut of Trex® Outdoor Lighting, a complete system of energy-efficient components designed to complement Trex's high-performance outdoor products.
Joining the brand's popular Trex Deck Lighting offerings is a full selection of easy-to-install Trex Landscape Lighting options. Together, these compatible fixtures make up the Trex Outdoor Lighting collection and work together to provide enhanced ambiance and security to any outdoor living space.
"The right lighting can take any outdoor space from invisible to inviting," said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. "The new Trex Landscape Lighting components are designed to integrate seamlessly with our Trex Deck Lighting offerings, as well as with all of the Trex decking and railing products, so homeowners can create customized outdoor living spaces that are compatible and consistent in both look and performance."
Trex Landscape Lighting options feature compact designs that put the focus on the fixture's effect instead of the source, and may be built into new or existing outdoor living spaces. The new collection includes the following four landscape lighting styles:
- Well light – Well lights provide ambient illumination for bushes, foliage and small structures. A removable spike keeps the light in place and allows for easy customization.
- Path light – Available in two classic designs to complement existing decor, path lights brighten walkways with a warm, focused light.
- Multifunction light – These versatile lights cast a wide glow for highlighting buildings, trees and pathways and allow for a custom look for any setting with the 140-degree swivel head.
- Spotlight – Spotlights use the latest LED technology to shine a beautifully bright light through a modest head. When not in use, they're designed to practically disappear into their surroundings.
The entire Trex Outdoor Lighting system has been enhanced with the new Trex LightHub™ installation system for easy assembly. Each component comes with both "male" and "female" ends that make assembly a snap – literally – without the hassle of traditional wiring methods. In addition, both Trex Deck Lighting and Landscape Lighting fixtures are among the first in the industry to include LED components from Cree® – one of the leading LED manufacturers in the world – to ensure the ultimate in quality and consumer peace-of-mind.
True to Trex's environmentally friendly heritage, each lighting option operates for up to 40,000 hours of life and surpasses traditional incandescent lighting by using up to nine times less energy and eliminating worry of voltage drops. In addition, the low-voltage lights are extremely durable, as well as weather-proof and salt-air resistant – ensuring that they will retain a "like new" appearance for years to come. The lights also are cool to the touch, making them safe for children and pets.
"Landscape and deck lighting can significantly extend the amount of time you're able to spend enjoying your outdoor living space," Kaplan said. "Flexible systems like Trex Outdoor Lighting help to create a more inviting – and safe – outdoor environment."
Trex Outdoor Lighting is protected by a five-year warranty on the LED lights and housings and a three-year warranty on dimmers, timers and transformers. The new Trex Landscape Lighting collection will be available at retail in March 2014.
