Probably cause they're fashioned from common plumbing pipes and fittings.

So Gambino designs lights for Nightscaping too besides his own pipe fittings?

Well there are some around here who seem think it could just as easily have been called the Scalialiter, but I keep telling them they're confusing two different guys... even if they both claim to be from Lawn Guyland.... (that's the phonetic version for us non New Yorkers to pronounce it correctly.)

Hmmm really? My degree and background in Demography and Economic Geography tells me you are incorrect, again. In fact I'm gonna imagine that if you are coming into a dock in a boat and one of those lights is mounted on a dock it's gonna be pretty close to eye level and you are going to be looking directly into the lamp compartment and be blinded. So NOT the case. Most of our dock surfaces are 18" above the waterline, some at 24". Unless you are coming in to the dock on a Kayak there is no glare or view into the fixture at all. These are Dark Sky Friendly fixtures, the only DSF dock lights on the market. Show me a bullet and maybe I can get excited over it. I live on an island surrounded by water and never once had the occasion to install a dock light. Perhaps your client's are not affluent enough to have waterfront infrastructure. The world can get along just fine without docklights. In fact I wish they'd introduce legislation to outlaw them. The INTEGRA Liter was developed in response to local regulations that limit the type of lighting that can be installed in waterfront application. It is a nice, solid, effective, approved fixture for the application. Others have found many other applications for the fixture too. Decks, Patios, Delineating paths, Creating interesting 360deg. patterns on walls etc etc. Build it and they will come.
I wish they'd do the same about granola and Granola peddling. Jealous!Thank you.

Have a great day.

I could use that Gambino lighter quite well over garage doors and such. It would disappear under the soffit.

I do use several Terradock lighted dock cleats in a year. They do very well and only 5 watts each.

I have used 2 of the Gambino Liter fixtures for just that application... over the garage doors, flush mounted to the underside of the soffit. They blended right in and work very well in the application.

Have a great day.

That's what I've been saying all along, Gambino is a Genious and deserves the nobel peace prize.
