About Low Voltage Pathway Lighting

Where should path lights be installed?

As the name suggests, path lights are ideal for paths around your home. But in addition to walkways, they are ideal for gardens, flower beds, along driveways, around patios and more.

How many path lights do I need?

It depends on the area you need to illuminate, your terrain, the effect you'd like to achieve and the beam spread of the fixtures you select. For example, our Max Spread path lights produce roughly a 16-foot diameter beam spread. For continuous illumination along a flat path, they'd be spaced about 16 feet apart. For independent pools of light, they'd be spaced about 20 feet apart. On the other hand, our Mini Flat Hat 3" path lights have a 3-foot diameter beam spread. They'd be spaced about 3 feet apart for continuous illumination along path, or 4.5 feet apart for independent pools of light.

Bear in mind, a fixture is generally placed very near the beginning and end of the path. Let's say you're using the Max Spread on a 50-foot path; you'd add 16 feet to account for the two beginning/end fixtures, because half of their light will extend beyond the path. The 66-foot length divided by a 16-foot beam spread would 4.125 fixtures, which you might round up to five. Or for the Mushroom Mini, you'd add 8 feet. So, 58 feet divided by the 8-foot beam spread is 7.25 fixtures, which you might round up to eight.

How should path lights be arranged?

Path lights can be placed all along one side of a walkway - but it usually looks better if they're staggered or laid out in a zig-zag fashion. Be sure to factor that into your measurements when deciding how many fixtures you need. If you have a wide path and you're using a zig-zag pattern, then you wouldn't just measure the length of the path; you'd need to measure the length of the zig-zag pattern from fixture to fixture.

How do I choose the right path light?

When thinking about how to select path lights, consider your application and your tastes. Would you prefer brass or copper? If it's brass, we offer antique bronze and black finishes. What suits your architecture and landscape - classic styles like the Conehead or Flat Hat, a contemporary Modernelle, or one of ornate decorative path lights? Does your home require one of our estate-size fixtures? Do you want the wider beam spread of a tall fixture with a wide hat (and perhaps a telescopic extension) for use in a garden, or do you have a narrow path along which a small hat would be more appropriate? Whatever your needs, VOLT® has the best path lights for you!
