Stylish lighting on the outside of your home helps to make your home look great, but installing outdoor lighting used to be costly, requiring an electrician to help with connecting lighting to the mains. Fortunately, that has changed as solar powered lighting has improved dramatically.
Solar powered outdoor lighting has come a long way in the past few years, and so have solar panels and battery technologies that increase the efficiency of solar lighting. Today’s solar wall lights, and solar fence lights are affordable, easy to install and because they’re powered by sunlight, are free to run. Most solar powered wall lights and fence lights use LEDs, which require very little power to provide excellent lighting levels, and so the use of solar lights has increased in popularity in gardens and outside homes.
Since there is no mains power required, solar lighting can be easily installed in order to light up different areas of your garden, allowing you to enjoy your patio, summer house or pergola into the evenings throughout the warmer months of the year.
Lighting up paths and driveways at the entrance to your home isn’t just important to make your home look great, and to allow you to enjoy your garden for longer – lighting is essential for the safety and security of your family. Not only do you need to help prevent accidental trips or falls on the way into your home, but being able to find keys and enter the property quickly is a safety concern for many of us too.
Our range of solar wall lights and solar fence lights is extensive. We’ve chosen attractive traditional models that include half lanterns, bulkhead styles and hanging lanterns, while for an on-trend look our range of ultra-modern and contemporary solar lighting includes up and down lights, flush lights, and outdoor spotlights. If you’re looking for simple security lights that use an infra-red motion detector, or a light that is constantly on during the hours of darkness, we have an extensive range for you to choose from.
With a variety of styles and materials to suit all types of homes, as well as some great solar security lights, our range is certain to include outdoor lighting that can provide the exact type of light that you need.
As outdoor lighting is exposed to the elements, it is important to ensure your lighting will continue to work safely if it rains, or winds are high. When you’re choosing your solar wall lights, or solar fence lighting, be sure to check that the model you choose has IP44 rating, which means it is splash proof and can withstand the type of weather the UK encounters year round.
