The Hinkley Lighting 1579SS Landscape Path Low Voltage Stainless Steel is a contemporary path light, 22 in height, topped by a 4.5 wide cylindrical lampshade made of frosted glass. The light is made with a stainless steel finish. The 1579SS Landscape Path Light uses an 18 watts T5 wedge base bulb and is powered by low voltage of 12 volts. The main advantages of low voltage lighting for outdoors are simplicity of installation, lower risks of electrical hazards and lesser power consumption. While low voltage lighting itself may not consume lesser power, the power saving is on account of the low voltage lighting being more conducive to the use of energy efficient bulbs. The 1579SS Landscape Path Light has to be connected to a low voltage transformer, which has to be installed separately, and a single transformer is generally installed to cater to multiple low voltage lights. The 1579SS Landscape Path Light is ETL rated for operational suitability in wet conditions thus making it ideal for outdoor use, along walkways, pathways, fences and for step lighting.
