Outdoor Fixture Tips 

 

TWO LIGHTS BESIDE AN EXTERIOR DOOR

When mounting exterior wall lights beside a door, position the fixtures at eye level, or 60"- 65" from the ground. For the best spread of light, the fixture should measure at least 1/4 the height of the door.

 


ONE LIGHT BESIDE AN EXTERIOR DOOR

Position the light fixture on the same side as the doorknob in order to see your visitors’ faces when opening the door at night. Mount the center of the fixture at eye level, or 60"- 65" from the ground.

 

 

What is the difference between damp-rated and wet-rated fixtures?

If the fixture will be installed in a place where it will be in direct contact with rain or snow, we recommend selecting a wet-rated model. Damp-rated fixtures may be installed in covered areas and are recommended for bathrooms where fixtures may be exposed to steam or collect condensation.
