Why Low Voltage

What are Stallion's Colonial Lights?

Stallion has developed stylish low voltage lights specifically for the vinyl fence and railing industry. They are powered by a 12 volt transformer to deliver a full 7 watts of power.

What are the advantages of low voltage lighting?

Low voltage lights are great for lighting where solar is not practical. The major advantages of low voltage lighting systems are economy, safety, security, and ease of installation. Because the low voltage lights use low voltage lamps they are very economical to operate. A typical six-light set uses less electricity than a 75 -watt bulb! The systems are safer and easier to install than conventional 120-volt systems. For instance, if you touch the ware wires or cut a buried cable with a garden tool, you will not get a shock.

What are the disadvantages of low voltage lighting?

Two disadvantages are the limited range of lights (about 200 feet from the transformer) and it is a hardwire system.

What is the amount of light output?

A typical low voltage lamp delivers between 15 and 30 foot-candles of light. This level of illumination is about 18% to 25% as bright as a 75-watt lamp, which makes it ideal for fences, decks and other outdoor areas where subtle illumination is desired. Whether you'll perceive it as too bright or not bright enough is a mater of personal preference.

What sort of maintenance is associated with Stallion' low voltage lights?

After you have installed your low voltage lighting system, there is very little maintenance that needs to be done to keep it running smoothly other than replacing bulbs.

How often will I need to replace the low voltage lamps?

Low voltage lamps are designed for long life. Since most low voltage lamps operate at less voltage than their capacity ( due to voltage drop), actual bulb life may be significantly longer. Average bulb life should be 1500 to 2000 hours.

Am I able to control when the lights will come on?

Yes, the transformer has a timer incorporated. This allows you to have the lights turn off and non up to two times a day.
