Dock lighting has become increasingly popular in south florida. There are several styles of lighting products that can achieve this look. At Apollo Lighting we sell the best products for the salt water environment and we also offer our installation service in the Broward county area.
LIGHTING STYLE 1 - LIGHTS ON THE BOTTOM
These extremely powerful fixtures are easy to install and a great way to attract fish of all kinds to your dock. The Light comes in a variety of colors and must be used entirely submerged at all times. This particular light does require routine maintenance and cleaning depending on water conditions, and works best with a protective coating. This is a great option when installing one or two lights on a small dock.
LIGHTING STYLE 2 - SMALL LIGHTS MOUNTED UNDER THE DOCK
This option is great for a subtle indirect look and is typically wired in with a system of five lights or more. Power to these low voltage lights can be run in conduit creating a much cleaner look and has less snags when boat traffic on the dock is an issue. These fixtures can be incorporated into a landscape lighting system and have a 20 year warranty due to the fact that they are not constantly submerged in water. Systems with this particular light are relatively maintenance free and the fixtures themselves can be aimed and adjusted. They come in a variety of colors, beam spreads, and finishes.
LIGHTING STYLE 3 - LIGHTS ON THE PILLINGS
This light comes in Green or blue and has a high lumen output. The light must be submerged at all times and is fixed in place attached to the pilings directing the beam outward. Like most lights that are constantly submerged it requires routine maintenance and cleaning. The main feature of this fixture is its high lumen output making is a great choice for marinas.
