June 24, 2007 - NiteLites Outdoor Lighting Franchise reports that more and more homeowners and business owners are moving toward elaborate landscapes and expanding the outdoor space available. They are doing this with professionally installed outdoor lighting systems.
NiteLites Franchise Systems, Inc. the landscape lighting professionals, has been in business since 1998 and has played an important role in the rapid growth of the outdoor lighting industry. According to a recent marketing research study, the outdoor lighting industry is expected to grow to $ 3.8 billion by the year 2010. This growth, according to Mr. Thomas Frederick, President and CEO of NiteLites Franchise Systems, Inc., “is due to a combination of several critical market factors.” Probably the greatest external influence is the trend called “cocooning”, which started around the mid 1990’s. “Cocooning is the tendency for people to spend more time in and around their homes. Because people are spending more time at home they are willing to invest in amenities that increase their enjoyment at home.” One of the most visible improvements that a homeowner can invest in is architectural and landscape lighting. Outdoor lighting is a high impact way to enhance the appearance of their property, to illuminate the natural alfresco areas of their landscape and architecture, and to improve safety and security when navigating the property. Thomas A. Frederick, President and CEO explaining that landscape lighting is still in its infancy said “ In my opinion, landscape and architectural lighting is where irrigation was fifteen to twenty years ago. We have tremendous growth ahead of us.”
Architectural and landscape lighting systems are becoming increasingly popular. An outdoor lighting system brings a number of benefits to the homeowner – an increase in property value, unsurpassed curb appeal, expanded living and entertainment areas, low cost operation because the systems are operated using low voltage fixtures, and expandability. But perhaps the most important benefits of an outdoor lighting system are the safety and security that the low voltage lighting system provides.
A poorly lit path, step, or driveway can lead to accidents that can be avoided. A well-lit walkway allows your family and guests to see potential hazards and enables them to avoid those hazards. A professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting system provides a walkway that is illuminated adequately to provide safety, but subtle enough to avoid a high intensity, runway effect.
At the same time, landscape lighting not only highlights the features of a property owner’s yard, it also eliminates the “dark spots” that potential intruders might use to stay hidden. Intruders prefer to work in the dark, and not to be noticed. By eliminating the dark areas in the property, property owners lower the chances of becoming target.
NiteLites provides a variety of low voltage lighting fixtures including outdoor lights for architectural lighting, landscape lighting, as well as lighting for patios, gardens, decks, pathways, and submersible lighting for fountains and ponds. In addition, the company’s trained lighting designers create many different lighting effects for entryways, club houses, pool areas, municipalities, businesses, restaurants, public facilities and parks, apartment complexes, town homes, condominiums. Some of these outdoor lighting techniques include:
Moonlighting, Up Lighting, Accent and Spot Lighting, Path Lighting, Wash Lighting, Silhouetting, Spread Lighting, and Submersible Lighting.
Consumers have a wide selection of low voltage outdoor lighting products, but most of these products have a field life of a maximum of one year. These poor quality lighting fixtures are typically sold as kits or “self install” packages, and are relatively inexpensive. As might be expected, they are not made to last. NiteLites offers high quality products complete with a warranty. NiteLites specification grade low voltage lighting fixtures are made of acid etched brass and copper, ensuring that they will not crack or peel. For residential customers enjoy a lifetime warranty on lighting the fixtures and connectors and even their transformers carry a ten year warranty.
NiteLites, in addition to selling its systems to homeowners and commercial properties, partners with high end builders, landscapers, and landscape architects to offer customers a complete property package. NiteLites collaborates with their professional counterparts in the planning stages of the building or landscaping project. They provide a checklist of construction tips designed to save money and time in preparation for the installation of a low voltage lighting system.
