    I'm searching for a sealed luminaire. Other than Unique Vanguard and Cast engineered wall light, can anyone offer a recommendation.

    look at the Kichler LED wall light. I just used some on a Yard Crashers episode and they are awesome. They come in 6", 12", and I think 18". There is different part number when it comes with the mounting plate, FYI.

    I have about 100 of the Troy wall lights in the field. It has probably one of the best protected lamps I have seen. The lamp they provide does not seem to be very long lived, however if I can find a higher quality lamp for them they are a fantastic wall light. Price point was excellent too through my distributor.

    I have been looking at the kichler LED wall light and am going to be using around 50 or so on an upcoming couple of projects. I am anxious to try these out.

    Hey Tim what kind of life are you getting with the festoon? Will those fixtures handle 20 watt lamps?

    I am not a salesperson for Vista, but they do have a pretty cool twist on this type of fixture, specifically for when you are installing into a pre-built wall where disassembly is not an option. The way they make their mounting flange is such that you can snap off a couple of corners and make it into a wedge shape so that you can insert it more easily between the layers of stone. Check it out sometime.

    I have used the Unique Vanguard, Vista and Encore fixtures of this type. Depending on exact placement each have their strong points. I like the Vista in SRW step applications as height and depth are sometimes restrictive. On existing walls the Unique was fairly easy to mount to the underside of cap after removing optional mounting plate. The Encore's mounting plate is open in the middle which might make it easier to modify or cut it.

    I have only had them in about 5 months. so far I have lost 5 lamps out of 100. 5% is not terrible but it is a nuisance. I love the fixture, but need to find a more durable brand of lamp.
