i-lighting™, a manufacturer of interior and exterior lighting applications, has enhanced the effectiveness of its indoor and outdoor StairLighting System with the introduction of a newly-designed LED display that illuminates each individual step.
The new fixture is designed to specifically increase safety, reduce injuries resulting from falls on poorly-lit stairways and help contractors, builders and home owners nationwide to meet the latest codes mandating the illumination of interior and exterior stairways. This includes the latest set of regulations issued by the International Code Council (ICC), which clearly details the need to light the treads and landings of interior stairways to “levels not less than 1 foot-candle (11 lux)” and install lighting in “the immediate vicinity of the top landing of exterior stairs.”
i-lighting’s new Modern LED Stair Lights are available for use as either interior or exterior kits to extend the visibility and safety of stairs located virtually anywhere in or around the home or office. This includes basement and interior staircases, porches and decking that exist in poorly-lit spaces and pose potential tripping and falling hazards.
Each kit has everything necessary for installations including light fixtures with LED spotlights, patented plug A into B wiring harness and all fastener accessories necessary for complete installations. The Stairlighting Kit can also be purchased to support installations with or without access to the back of stairs or for spiral, carpeted or wooden stair applications.
Virtually maintenance-free, the system’s LED lights are attached by simply plugging together each fixture’s A into B connectors. In addition, each LED light uses approximately 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and is rated for 100,000 hours of operation or 12-plus years if used 24-hours-a-day/seven-days-a-week. Other specific benefits include a:
• Photocell technology that senses ambient light and automatically turns lights on and off for both safety and security, while adding convenience and reliability
• Lighting design that does not create heat and as a result is safer for pets and children, while attracting less insects
• One-year warranty on kit materials and a lifetime warranty on all LED lights
• Interior systems, which also provide options for battery backup emergency lighting during power failures
