In South Africa, the sun shines for about 70% of daylight hours. All that sunlight calls for solar lighting, as both an energy efficient and cost effective way of generating light.
What’s more, solar lighting technology has improved significantly in recent years, making it a more reliable light source. No more fading in the middle of an evening garden party!
Solar lighting can be utilised to work beautifully around the perimeter of the house, as well as in the garden. Positioned strategically, it not only works as a functional addition to your outdoor space, but also as a decorative element highlighting key features and accents.
Eurolux Lighting’s new Functional Solar lighting range offers a variety of outdoor light fittings in various shapes, sizes and styles. They are all fitted with the latest in solar lighting technology for longer-lasting light. In fact, the lamp in each of these fixtures has a 50,000-hour lifetime expectancy.
The charging time for the fittings in this collection ranges from 7 to 11 hours, depending on the individual fixture. A big advantage is that there is no wiring required and they all turn on automatically when it gets dark, although there is an on/off switch should you wish to control the light manually.
Manufactured from aluminium, aluminium alloy, ABS, or a combination of these, the fixtures are all extremely durable and resistant to the elements, including wind and rain.
