Stainless Steel Outdoor Lighting

Updated on January 14, 2011

If you want completely dependable outdoor lighting that can stand the test of time, you need to go stainless steel. Stainless steel outdoor lighting can withstand unpredictable weather conditions, more importantly rain and moisture, and can guarantee your lighting fixtures will look new and stain-free for a long time.

If you are looking for ideas and deals for stainless steel outdoor lighting, then you have come to the right place. See our deals section find products and get an idea on pricing, or simply read more to know what more to expect.

Because we are covering a very broad product niche here, we need to figure out specifically or narrow our search parameters to find products that suit our intended application. Now, while most outdoor lighting can be quantified by their placement—for example, wall lights and yard lights—we would first like to cover important trends and functionality that help save the environment. Yes, truly, green is in.

A beautiful example of a stainless steel solar yard light

Shall we go solar?

Solar is all the rage nowadays. It does make a lot of sense as the sun is a big ball of energy that can supply more that we can ever use, so tapping its power is a must. For solar outdoor lighting, there are more and more options to choose from than there ever was before. Possibly the most common form of stainless steel solar lighting are yard lights or pathway lights. These are those normally seen lined up around yards, which are literally planted on the soil. A bunch of these can effectively light up a garden at night, which can also eliminate the need for additional post or wall lights.

Solar lighting is not limited to yard lights. There are also solar wall lights, ceiling lights, down lights, etc. From here it is just a matter of personal preference but it is good to note that if you have something in mind, most likely there is a solar product for it. Plus, these already come with their own small solar panel and rechargeable battery this is indeed a hassle-free setup.

Stainless steel wall light with sensor

Let’s use sensors to save more energy

Remember, we are simply guiding you with energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly solutions at this point, and we will surely come across some cool stainless steel outdoor lighting in the deals below.

While most solar lights already comes with their own sensors, should you choose to go the non-solar route, it would save a lot of energy to go with automatic on/off lights. Most outdoor lights can be fitted (or come with) sensors that can tell when it’s time to turn on and turn off. While this can be simply done manually, trust me, there will come a time where you will overrun your lights—leave them on when it is already bright—and waste precious energy. Lights with sensors do not cost that much more so this is a good investment that you can re-earn from saved energy bills.

Now, on to stainless steel lighting

For outdoor lights, remember that you have a number of choices and most of these are based on location. There are first the very obvious spot lights. Spot lights can either be down lights or up lights. These are pretty much self-explanatory. There are path an area lights, and these are those that come with a short pole. There are also in-ground lights which are normally made from stainless steel, but these still fall within path lights. Finally, a more common term for standard outdoor lighting comes wall lights, which can also be down lights or simple niche lights for front walls and gates.

Below are some popular stainless steel lighting fixtures to give you an idea on basic styles and pricing.
