Copper Outdoor Lighting
There are several benefits to copper outdoor lighting.
Copper has been in use for 5,000 years. It is no wonder that it has remained in use and growing in popularity. It is a versatile, recyclable metal that is used in wiring and in many types of home décor, both indoors and out.
When a purchase is made, it is good to know that it is money well spent. Copper outdoor lighting is not a waste of money. It is corrosion resistant under most weather conditions. It will resist corrosion in rain and/or snow with no signs of damage. This alone makes copper fixtures worth the price.
How often have you seen metal outdoor lighting deteriorate in appearance over the years? Copper fixtures are like cheese and fine wine, they improve with age. The beauty of copper is enhanced by exposure to the elements. It will naturally acquire protective coatings. Over the years these coatings develop and thicken until they evolve into an elegant brownish, or green patina.
In seacoast areas or industrial areas, it will take approximately five to seven years for the patina to develop. In rural areas that do not have extreme exposure to elements or contaminants, it will take ten to fourteen years. Eventually the weathered, attractive lighting will blend into the area in which they are placed.
Copper ages well. It is not affected by sunlight and does not become brittle, as plastic may. They are particularly desirable for nightscapes and landscaping enhancement. Another plus is their recyclable capability. It is estimated that more copper is recycled than mined, a great savings on the environment.
In fourteen hundred ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue and his ships had copper sheathing underwater to preserve the hulls.
Copper outdoor lighting is not only beneficial for its esthetic appeal, but also for security and safety. Lighting is vitally important at night whether coming home from work or a social event, or entertaining in your outdoor area. You can find elegant fixtures for your pathways or your deck. They will add beauty and functionality to your outdoor areas.
