    I'm fixin to do a job that has a retaining wall that surrounds a large outdoor patio area. They want lights in the retaining wall pointing down to light the edges of the patio. Anyone know of a decent looking steplight type fixture that works well in retaining walls? I definitely want one that can handle a 20watt bulb. I'm thinking of using Hadco steplyte rsbl2: http://www.hadco.com/Hadco/Public/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=163

    Anyone had any experience with this particular fixture or have any other recommendations?

    Hello Derek

    Take a look at what Hunza has to offer. Be prepared for some pro-grade fixtures and pro-grade prices though. They offer a number of fantastic fixtures for coring into vertical surfaces. Take a look at http://www.hunza.co.nz/nav_steplites.htm

    Have a Great day.

    It took some digging around, but I am pretty sure this is my first post on Lawnsite. Can you find yours?

    Is there supposed to a link to your first, James?

    I'm not going to post mine because I just referred to it a couple months ago.

    Hi Derek,

    We (CAST Lighting) are a sponsor in the forum, so I'm obviously biased, but take a look at our durable solid bronze Engineered Wall Light (both incandescant and LED versions).

    We also have a unique mounting system (CAST Set-n-Stone System) for these that allows you to insert brackets and conduit in the wall during construction then install the lights afterward. Regardless of the system you use, you might want to read the installation manual that goes through various ways to wire retaining wall lights.

    It's tricky to notice the post date. We get in a habit of simply responding.
    On the other hand, I can vouch for Cast's wall lights. I've installed many halogen and LED fixtures with zero issues over the past 4 years. Although it would be a nice option to have a clear and frosted lens.
