With July comes temperatures that make you want to be by the water all day and night. If you are fortunate enough to live by the water in the Wilmington area, you know how relaxing it can be. And while it’s nice to feel the sun on your skin and hear the birds chirping their songs, nightfall brings a special mood to waterfront properties. Don’t you enjoy those nighttime sights and sounds from your dock and relish sharing that time with your family? Traversing a dock at night, even your own, can be dangerous if there is insufficient visibility, but with outdoor lighting, you can increase the safety of the area without having to locate the flashlight each time you journey down.
Wilmington dock lighting, like deck lighting, clearly illuminates edges that can become trip hazards if shadowed. Some of these areas include the edges of the dock itself and the transitions from the ramp to the dock. Dock lighting also allows you to see if someone left a cooler or life jacket lying in your path. When illuminating docks, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington uses many of the techniques and fixtures we use for deck lighting. All of these fixtures are crafted from high quality brass or copper, the materials used to produce maritime equipment for centuries. This choice of material makes them extremely durable. Their finish will not crack, and they do not rust, which is especially important since will be exposed to a lot of moisture and salty air.
In addition to making your dock safer, dock lighting helps set the mood for a beautiful, relaxing evening. We know dock lighting, which means we can set your lights to provide clear visibility but not detract from everything that makes nighttime on the water so enchanting. The addition of dock lighting can even enhance this mood and provide a serene atmosphere for your best evening times outdoors. Whether you have simply stepped down for a few moments to hear the sound of the water and watch reflections or you sit for a while with your favorite drink, dock lighting will allow you to soak in the best our waterways have to offer after dark.
So if you are ready to use your dock without reservations at night, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington a call. We will create a unique design that best complements your dock, and you will be able to safely utilize it day or night. Who knows? It may even become your favorite place to relax.
