Boat Dock Lighting, Orlando, FL
One of our areas of expertise is boat dock lighting, which we offer on both residential and commercial properties.
When you live in a state like Florida, you may take advantage of the proximity to various bodies of water by owning a watercraft. It’s fun to take a speedboat out for a day on the water or enjoy some relaxing time on a sailboat. If your property also has a boat dock, you can always get to the water when the mood strikes. But when the sun goes down, it’s harder to enjoy your boat dock without proper lighting. Installing boat dock lighting can be a challenge due to its proximity to water, but our team at Elegant Custom Images can take care of this need.
We’re a leading provider of exterior lighting solutions for clients located throughout the Orlando, Florida area. One of our areas of expertise is boat dock lighting, which we offer on both residential and commercial properties. Adding lights to a boat dock is one of the best investments you can make on your property. Docks can be a bit uneven, especially if they’re made with planks, so the risk of tripping is high. A dark, uneven surface is unsafe, and tripping and falling on a dock could result in someone tumbling into the water headfirst. You want to be sure there’s plenty of lighting on the dock to prevent this problem.
Adding boat dock lighting also makes the space more functional at all hours of the day and night. You can head out for a moonlit boat ride with sufficient lighting to get to your vessel and board it safely. It’s definitely worth considering the addition of boat dock lighting, so reach out to us to learn more.

Landscape Lighting Fixtures
Elegant Custom Images carries a variety of landscape lighting fixtures to suit your needs, depending on your budget and style preferences. Our Heavy Cast Brass lighting fixtures are top of the line in terms of both quality and durability. We get our solid brass fixtures from a manufacturer that has years of experience, and is well known as an industry leader in landscape lighting fixtures. Milled Brass fixtures are another option for your landscape lighting needs. These fixtures are second to none in terms of quality, with a price tag that falls midway between the cheapest and most expensive lighting fixtures. Milled brass fixtures are heavy duty and come with a full 25-year warranty. Some landscape lighting firms promote low-cost aluminum lighting fixtures. But, there’s a big trade-off when it comes to durability, particularly in Florida. Aluminum fixtures may be cheaper than brass, but they don’t fare well in our heat and humidity. They rust and corrode prematurely. Powder coated products fade quickly too. And most take a lesser wattage bulb as a maximum size, compared to other metal fixtures. Aluminum lighting fixtures are also more susceptible to damage from landscapers. These fixtures typically don’t last more than 2-3 years, compared to brass, which will last for decades. Investing a little more today in a brass fixture will pay dividends for years to come.
We use only stainless steel, 25-year transformers. The cores have been wrapped in silicone to prevent corrosion here in Florida. The products are very good quality and have capacities ranging from 300 watts to 1500 watts. The transformers all are multi-tapped, which enable us to design a landscape lighting system that has the exact voltage requirements at every location on your property. This is an important piece as the bulbs are halogen gas bulbs. They require heat to light the bulb. Voltage provides the heat. If the voltage is too high or low, then the bulbs will burn at a faster rate. Too high on the voltage very well could destroy the lighting fixture on top of everything else. So the proper amount of voltage is an absolute must. They all have multiple commons, which allow us to spread the amp loads out across the transformer and keep the system running as cool as possible.Remember, the cooler things run, the longer they last!
On all home runs, we use nothing but high quality 12 gauge wire, all UL approved, underground burial wire. The lighting wire is guaranteed for the life of the system.
Landscape Lighting Bulbs
We use 75,000 hour rated LED lights in our outdoor landscape lighting fixtures. The LED’s come in various colors such as warm white (most commonly used), standard white and cool white. When the landscape lighting system is designed correctly, with the proper voltage maintained at each fixture, then the system will run a very long time.
At Elegant Custom Images, we solder all of our connections at the hubs, so the wiring cannot pull apart; we include brass crimping and place the connections in long, heavy duty grease tubes, and then place them in a main hub. In this way, we can certify that the connections will stay waterproof and have good connectivity. The tubes also keep the connection steady, which is so important in Florida. If a contractor uses wire nuts or clamp type connections, the integrity of the landscape lighting system will be compromised as the life span is shortened considerably.
