An earlier post outlined some of the unique advantages of lighting an outdoor wall surrounding a homeowner's property. Of course, many home will not have a prominent wall surrounding their property. Instead, perhaps the entire neighborhood is surrounded by a wall. This wall provides security and also improves the overall look of the neighborhood. Commercial wall lighting will improve both the security and the aesthetics of the wall.
Often, commercial walls will be lit by overpowering high-voltage lighting. This commercial lighting overpowers the wall and the surrounding area. The high-powered lights flood the area, blinding passersby as they glance toward the wall. Instead of using high-powered commercial lighting, McKay uses low-voltage lighting, providing a soft light on the wall. This type of low-voltage commercial wall lighting allows the wall to be adequately lit, but it allows the wall to look great at night. Whether the wall is brick, stucco or a metal fence, McKay will make it look spectacular at night by bringing light to nuances within the wall that high-powered lights would otherwise overpower the structure.
Low-voltage commercial wall lighting will also bring an improved sense of overall security. By eliminating potential dark spots around the entire area, a lighting system will eliminate potentially unsafe areas. Not only will the entire property look great, but it will also be much safer as would-be intruders are encouraged to move on to less-lit areas. Creating a wall of low-voltage lighting will keep dark areas lit, but with a soft glow instead of an overpowering flood of white light.
