    What kind of roof mount/gutter mount fixtures do you guys use? Also, what is your fixture of choice for gables, rev. gables, dormers ect. ? I have been using a combo of small wall washers(bi-pin) mr-11 and mr-16. Are there other low profile fixtures to use?

    We have been known to use a few unique stellars and probe OSM fixtures. Im also a fan of the Northstar OSM (mr 11 light that is perfect in low level downlighting like from Crepes or River Birches) altho I have been having to change the O rings out to a larger one so the shroud fits tighter.

    All of these are avalible stock brass with a white powder coat. They can also color match on request as well.

    The Stellar on a small 6" riser and a uni-bracket and your a good to go.

    I have always liked this set up... well conceived and thought up as it solves a difficult mounting issue for so many. It gets the fixture low to the roof deck, allows for ease of wiring, you don't have to penetrate the roof deck and it works on most standard eaves trough systems.

    Now if someone would make a more robust version that will stand up to snow loading, roof shoveling, and ice movement I could use them too! (J.K. after seeing this posted here a few years ago I have been making my own version, on site, out of heavy gauge angle iron. Works great!)

    Robust is right, That thing is a big and heavy. Way to wide to mount on a corner of a gutter. But will hold a fixture real nice. Only thing that sucks is having to bring the fixture up with you to mount it. Unique the threaded socket slips on and off.

    I looked all through the CopperMoon website and catalog and didn't find any type of accessory mount. Can you send me the info / link / spec ?

    All depends on the construction techniques. There are many ways to mount fixtures to structures and conceal the wire... we do it on most jobs and it is always slightly different depending on the application.
