Lightbulb Down Light Fixture Suggestions

I have a massive deck covering a basement walkout area that needs to be well lit. As the deck is timber frame, there is no opportunity to install recessed "pot lights". I am looking for a static (straight down), low profile, MR16 based down light fixture.

I know of the Vision3 DL1: http://www.vision3lighting.com/media...2001-24-11.pdf

and also the Hevi Lite HL-330: http://www.hevilite.com/catalog/list...?listingID=202

Are there any other similar types of fixtures I am missing out there?
Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Oh, one other stipulation, the mount and connection / wire feed must come from above and not the side. This eliminates such fixtures as the Nightscaping Guardian, etc.

Hi James,

I have a couple ideas from BK lighting I will email them directly over to you as they are from the custom section of the catalogue and not on the web site.

James, just curious, why select straight-down lights? If the deck has a seating area, overhead direct lighting is very unflattering to occupants. Are there on other options such as using deck lights or path lights?

Thanks Jaret. I will take a look at those tomorrow and get back to you, but I suspect that Custom BK will be out of the budget for this job.

Thanks Steve. The deck is about 2500 sq ft and covers a basement walkout. It was to have been a standard frame using pot lights to light the walkout area beneath (where there is a 14' tall "ceiling" height) but it has just been changed to a timber frame deck, hence the need for a surface mount fixture in place of the pot lights. I will put a diffuse lens in front of the lamp to soften and spread the beams, but the client wants soft pools of light under there. It will look great when finished.

Hi James,

I will send you a price on the Artistar fixture, as it is not a custom, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the value of BK on some of there custom stuff.

James,

Couple of things - Depending on how much light you want, how about Nightscaping Railiter. Now I think they can A- make it longer than the 3-4 inches and B- make it with an bipin socket so you can use your bipin LED. If that's not enough light, and you want the MR-16 base, how bout an Escort with the wire out the top, take the finial out and drill a hole for a 1/2 EMT fitting, and make your own down rods, and attach to the ceiling with any kind of 1/2 " flange. So in a way, you're making your own custom fixture. I guess if you can do that for much less than one of the ready made fixtures, it might make sense. Good luck...

George

Thanks for the idea's George, I appreciate it. This project is new construction, fully custom built home and I would not want the hassels of altering or customizing fixtures for the application when there are at least a few available that will do the job. Always have to watch our CSA/UL listings here.

Does anyone have a good vendor of Vision3 that you could recommend?

I don't know if you have Ferguson's in Canada but they're all over in the states. They carry Vision3 and were the most helpful of the distributors we dealt with when we were looking for those fixtures.

Thanks for that.. any chance you could send me a email with their website or contact info? I googled the name and only came up with 4.9 million results!
