Well we are finally back to doing outdoor lighting installations! It has been a LONG Winter and a slow to warm up spring here.

This is a job left over from last fall, when the snow fell early we could not get this one done. The steps in the photos are the ones I was looking for a a solution for last year. I had Nightscaping make up some custom Masonliters for me, they look great so far. 4W lamps should be just about perfect.

Are those rated for wood?

Are you serious or joking?

The steps will look better once the copper turns. Looks like a nice project you have there.

Pretty serious question. I know the integral is not and have been looking for a product that is.... Granted have not looked very hard.

The Nightscaping Masonliter uses a T3 (std.) or T5 (how I prefer them) wedge base xenon lamp. In this application I am using a 4.5watt lamp. The fixture itself is comprised of two relatively large pieces of copper sheet that are formed and soldered together. The fixture is listed by the manufacturer as suitable for application on decks, steps, and walls.

I have no worries at all about mounting this fixture on wood surfaces.

Thank you James and I will look into that fixture.

Does the Integral specifically warn against use with wood?

The Vista 4260 looks like it is meant to be used with wood if you read the promo copy:

"Tucked unobtrusively into small places, the versatile 4260-CSN Rail Light fixture provides outstanding illumination while creating beautiful effects without revealing the source. The simple but effective design allows the 4260-CSN to be applied as a rail light for decks, balconies, boat docks and gazebos. In addition, the 4260-CSN can be firmly anchored in place with a special interlocking flange plate (included) for masonry or paver-wall installations. This low voltage fixture has a copper housing and a stainless steel chassis for strength and reliability. A frosted, tempered, shock and heat resistant glass lens safeguards the lamp and optics. The 4260-CSN is shipped with a standard 10W T3.5 Xenon lamp."

With that little square sheet in the bag it warns "not for use on wood applications". Or something to that effect
