Marine Stainless Steel Ensures the Longevity of Exterior LED Fixtures

LED lighting has quickly become popular with American consumers for its energy efficiency and directional lighting capabilities that make spaces brighter, safer, and more secure. LEDs are 90% more energy-efficient than incandescent lights. Also, they have a have a lifespan of up to 25 years, which is double that of fluorescent alternatives. The long-lasting, money-saving lighting technology is well suited for outdoor applications that require long periods of illumination: such as parking lots or building exteriors. However, wet conditions and salt sprays found in coastal areas can pose a risk to light fixtures. Therefore, an LED lighting solution that incorporates marine grade stainless steel can help ensure product durability and longevity for many years to come.

LED lighting has quickly become popular with American consumers for its energy efficiency and directional lighting capabilities that make spaces brighter, safer, and more secure. LEDs are 90% more energy-efficient than incandescent lights. Also, they have a have a lifespan of up to 25 years, which is double that of fluorescent alternatives. The long-lasting, money-saving lighting technology is well suited for outdoor applications that require long periods of illumination: such as parking lots or building exteriors. However, wet conditions and salt sprays found in coastal areas can pose a risk to light fixtures. Therefore, an LED lighting solution that incorporates marine grade stainless steel can help ensure product durability and longevity for many years to come.

Marine stainless-steel offers corrosion and impact resistance, making it perfect for outdoor use and seaside areas that experience high levels of moisture and salty splash zones. Mild steel succumbs to oxidation (rusting) that begins on the surface and will slowly consume the metal. 304 stainless steel leverages Chromium to resist oxidation, but in exterior environments this harmful rusting is merely delayed– not prevented entirely. However, marine grade 316 stainless steel incorporates the chemical element Molybdenum, which combats corrosion from salt in seawater, moisture, and environmental pollutants. The ruggedness of 316 molybdenum-alloyed steel makes the material perfect for coastal locations and outdoor spaces that face constant exposure to the harsh elements.

Wave-LED develops superior LED lighting solutions for industrial and commercial enterprises. Our energy-efficient LED technology cuts electricity costs and improves safety through brilliant illumination. We offer exterior LED fixtures that utilize marine stainless steel engineered to not only protect against rusting and corrosion, but to fire, heat, and debris impacts as well. Enhanced for maximum durability, marine stainless steel extends the longevity of products and reduces the need for maintenance interventions, saving customers money over the life of the devices.

Our Brik-F series developed for exterior spaces and coastal areas offers three different LED brick lights constructed from marine grade stainless steel and fitted with frosted polycarbonate lenses. Designed for use in wet locations, these fixtures are well-suited to provide illumination to exterior walls, walkways & stairwells that experience heavy rain and sea sprays. Or customers can choose from the Brik-L series; a family of LED louvre brick light that also uses marine grade stainless steel in its construction. The series is made to withstand high-moisture conditions, and comes available in three finish options and full, open fascia design.
