"The Brass Bunker" Louvered Step Light

Same as other Brass Bunker Step Lights except it has a faceplate with louvers and frosted lens. The louvers prevent the light from glaring into viewers eyes as they ascend the steps. Often used in commercial applications to illuminate handicap ramps and walkways next to stone walls, retaining walls and nooks around outdoor kitchens. This step light is rated for in-grade concrete pour applications! Everything is cast brass including the back box! This step light is not only a heavyweight, but it is completely sealed and watertight. Rubber seal around lead wire exit, pressure fit rubber gaskets around openings. Frosted lens reduces glare and gives softer illumination. The Bunker is 7" wide, 3 1/2" deep, with a box height of 2 1/2 inches. The faceplate is 8 1/4 " by 3 1/4". LED G4 Bi-Pin lamps are available.

Features & Benefits:

  • Solid cast brass construction for lifetime durability
  • Canister (back box) is solid cast brass. Other manufacturers use folded sheet metal boxes (not watertight)
  • Choose 4' standard or 25' 16G, SPT-2 premium tinned copper lead wire.
  • Silicone plug where lead wires exit fixture. Prevents ground moisture and insects from entering fixture.
  • Frosted lens for more uniform light distribution.
  • Low voltage, 12V AC fixture
  • Requires VOLT's® Low Voltage Transformer (Sold Separately, click HERE to view)
  • UL & cUL Listed
  • Lifetime Warranty

I really like the product but I need to find a way to filter the 3 watt LED's as they are to bright for our concrete walkway application.

Also installing these lights into the forms for concrete steps took more initiative than Volt admits to in the literature available before making an online purchase. We made it work, and I'm satisfied that the Volt product is way superior than the competition and a value at the price. More info upfront from Volt would be helpful.

As expected these fixtures are very durable and should easily last a lifetime. However, don't be fooled into thinking the louvers will contain or direct the light output. They are no different than the "Open Face" design in that regard. The only advantages to the louvers are some added protection for the glass lens, and possibly some esthetic appeal. These fixtures spill light everywhere, even when standing almost directly above them light still glares into your eyes. Also as mentioned in another review, the louver edges are very sharp and will cut you - be careful! I called Customer Service and asked about the possibility of exchanging just the lenses (our lights are installed, laid up in brick, but the lenses are in perfect like new condition) for the Hooded style lens which does a great job of directing all the light down and controlling glare. They will not work with me on the problem, stating that they will only exchange the entire fixture, not just the lenses. Unfortunately there is not a distributor in my area where we could have seen the problem ahead of time.

Revised review

By 

from Birmingham, Al

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I reviewed this product earlier (DCGOZ) and stand by my assessment of it's quality and build. But the louvered front is plain dangerous. Several other reviews mentioned how sharp the louvers are - I should have listened. A friend of mine stepped too close to one while barefoot and tore out a large chunk of his heel. VOLT doesn't sell just the fronts, so i'd have to replace the entire unit to change to the flat front. I'm past 30 days so I can't swap them out. I guess i'm going to try to either grind the louvers off, or have to mill my own front plate.

Bottom line: unless you are installing above a 16"+ step, DO NOT BUY THE LOUVERED FRONTS.

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Bunker is a very fitting description. These things are made to last. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that 3 of my 7 LED bulbs were duds and had to be returned.

These fixtures are bulletproof for sure. Just the right amount of louvered light. Love that it's an actual sealed unit and comes with glare guard glass.

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Fixture is quality, installation is straight forward. The only issue I have with this fixture is the lovers are very sharp. We installed these on a lake house wooden deck at all stairs risers as well as elevation changes. In heals of bare feet would be badly cut. We have had to hand file those louvers to dull the edges.

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Purchased the louvered step lights to be used with travertine thin paver steps leading from the street to our front gate that we were having constructed. The lights are well constructed and worked out great - I also purchased the 15W LED bulbs which put out a lot of light and make it very easy to navigate the steps at night.

consider redesign of louvers

By 

from Milton, GA United States

Site Member

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I have purchased a number of these units. I feel the louver front plate should have more louvers and angled more downward to better hide the glare form the 2 watt bulb inside.
I have gone to effort of adding a piece of stained glass to tone down the brightness and glare. I adherded it to the frosted glass inside the fixture with some silicone

The Brass Bunker

By 

from Valparaiso, IN United States

Site Member

Comments about VOLT® Brass Bunker Louvered Step Light | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I loved the fact that it was cast out of solid brass. I love the grills and front cover. The only complaint is the fit of the cover to the base. The screw holes do not align correctly. This forces the screws to go in on an angle creating too much side tension before the cover is fully in place. Then the screw head strips or breaks off. More care should be taken during the manufacturing process to make sure the holes are in the correct location. I am hesitant to order more products due to this problem.

This light looks incredible. It produces a nice amount of light just where it is needed. I often get asked where I bought my lights.

Finding Volt lights online was one of, if not my best online find.

I have used volt products in the past with great satisfaction, and I am not disappointed this time. I tore out the builder grade lighting on my front stairs to find the volt stair lights would not fit however they are such an upgrade that I tore out the stairs and poured new ones to accommodate them....over kill?
