TimberTech® Introduces First Deck Lighting System Designed by Deck Experts

12/15/2008 Download Release

Wilmington, Ohio - December 15, 2008 - Just because the sun has gone down, doesn't mean the family fun has to end. TimberTech, a leading manufacturer of decking, railing and fencing products, has introduced DeckLites, an extensive line of deck lighting solutions.

With post cap lights, baluster-mounted accent lights, post-mounted accent lights and stair riser lights, DeckLites offers a completely customizable lighting solution for any type of application. TimberTech's post cap lights and baluster mounted accents lights are specifically designed to fit with their RadianceRail® and Ornamental Rail systems.

To help bring additional light to other back yard areas, the post cap lights also work with TimberTech's composite fencing product, FenceScape. This application is ideal for adding accents to landscaped areas or to provide a decorative border around the yard.

TimberTech's low-voltage system offers many advantages - electrical connections are easy and do not require permits for installation, all components are sold individually for maximum design customization, uses minimal electricity and provides a soft ambient light that is as functional as it is stylish.

Traditional post cap lights are large, cumbersome and don't always match the railing. TimberTech solves these problems by integrating a lighting lens component that nestles perfectly between the post sleeve and post cap of the RadianceRail and Ornamental Rail systems, providing a sleek, finished appearance.

While lighting enhances the natural beauty of the deck, it also provides added safety. The accent and stair riser lights add extra lighting wherever it's desired, on any deck system, and the oval-shaped stair riser lights install recessed into the riser so there is no protrusion to create a tripping concern.

"Outdoor living, particularly activities centered on the deck has been growing in popularity," states Dave Waltz, TimberTech product manager. "Now, consumers are looking to extending the amount of time they can enjoy the outdoors and the DeckLites line offers great flexibility and elegant design."

Accent and stair riser lights are offered in Architectural Bronze color. Baluster blocks used to mount the accent lights between balusters come in Classic Black and Coastal White to match the RadianceRail line and Cedar, Grey and Redwood for the Ornamental Rail system. Lights and fixtures come with bulbs and installation hardware.

In addition to the lights, other components sold separately to complete the DeckLites system include: a UL listed 300 W, 120-volt transformer; wire; wire connectors; wire guides and replacement bulbs.

All DeckLites components carry a 5-year residential warranty.
