Lighting at the shore

I do landscape lighting at the shore. I have been using a aluminum path light that requires taking out 4 screws to change the bulb. In two years they have corroded and I can not get them out. a Also the paint is chipping bad. Anyone have any recommendations for a better light at the shore-Brass? Stainless?
Thanks Harry

You might wanna try bronze fixtures. Second choice might be brass. Salt air tends to corrode aluminum fixtures quicker.

Thanks for the reply-I was thinking of using fixtures that do not use screws too I will try bronze though.

HarryO, check out the Cast fixtures. They are solid bronze and have held up very well for me at the Jersey shore. http://www.cast-lighting.com/index.html

Stainless is only good depending on the alloys used. The alloys are what will give you pitting and corrosion. As you have seen aluminum corrodes very easily and quickly in a salt air environment. Copper will do some strange things in this area also. Make sure your connections are well soldered and sealed against the elements. You also have to be careful of what the lamp sockets are made from. Many fixtures will use aluminum for the sockets and you will have a very difficult job changing lamps. A liberal coating of lithium grease can be a big help with lamp replacement.

Cast even has an article on Oceanfront Lighting.

I second that on Cast lighting. Also Dreams To Designs great tip on the lithium grease.
Awesome product for down there. No-Ox Marine coated wire too.

Aversa, you must be a neighbor, but I am unfamiliar with your company or work. Do you do a lot of paver work and lighting in the area?
