What are the safety standards for outdoor lighting?

Manufacturers have strict safety standards for outdoor use, including patio lighting, so look closely at the Protection Rating.

The IP rating is expressed in numbers that can be read separately

  • The first number corresponds to the tightness of the external lamp to solid bodies, it goes from 1 to 6 ;
  • The second number corresponds to the waterproofness of the terrace lamp to liquid bodies, it goes from 1 to 9

A graduated scale

  • The higher the first number, the stronger the protection against solid intrusion;
  • The higher the second number, the stronger the protection against liquid intrusion

Two examples for outdoor terrace lighting:

  • Recessed spotlight for outdoor LED terrace lighting: IP 67
  • LED bollard light: IP 54

How to get a modern terrace lighting?

Everything starts upstream, perhaps even before the installation and furnishing of your terrace. Indeed, take advantage of the total absence of elements to create a diagram of your outdoor lighting on paper, in order to locate the location of outlets, but also the position of each terrace lighting you want. Think about the location of the dining area and the kitchen/barbecue area, which should be more illuminated than the living area, etc.

Do not hesitate to choose already on our online store the exact models of lights that you wish to install. They can be bollards with motion detector, pool deck lights, etc.

Which power of terrace lighting to choose?

Here, it is a question of finding the right balance between sufficient lighting, for safe circulation, and soft lighting, in particular not to participate in light pollution or to dazzle the users of the premises.

Depending on the size of the deck, whether or not there is an awning, the intensity of the light will vary. Also consider the type of outdoor patio light you want to install, for example, glass, with wood shade, steel, etc.

If you choose LED outdoor patio lighting to save money on your electricity bill, here's what you need to remember:

To choose the right LED lighting power, the power of LED light bulb is expressed in lumens and in the following way:

  • 1300 - 1400 lumens equivalent to a 100 Watt bulb
  • 920 - 1060 lumens equivalent to a 75 W bulb
  • 700 - 810 lumens equivalent to a 60 W bulb
  • 410 - 470 lumens equivalent to a 40 W bulb
  • 220 - 250 lumens equivalent to a 25 W bulb
  • < 150 lumens equivalent to a 15 W bulb
