Deck lighting enables you to safely enjoy time on the deck, whether it is just the two of you, or when you are entertaining. Deck lighting is designed to provide three types of lighting, including post-cap, side-mount, and recessed lighting.
Post-cap lighting is a type of accent lighting. It is mounted on top of specific deck perimeter posts, and generally also at the top and bottom posts of the deck’s stairway.
Side-mount lighting is mounted on the side of posts, and is an alternative to post-cap lighting in dining or lounge areas. When mounted at the proper height and position, it avoids blinding guests located near eye level posts.
