South Penrith modern outdoor lighting solution
Obadiah Place, South Penrith
The South Penrith outdoor lighting project brief
South Penrith homeowner Michael called Sapphire Trade Services enquiring about having 4-6 downlights and a fan installed in his newly built pergola.
As we do with all our jobs we conducted an in-person inspection so we knew exactly what we were dealing with before providing Michael with a price for works to be completed. Upon inspection our electrician Chris noticed that the company that installed the pergola hadn’t put in place any provisions for downlights or a fan to be installed, even though Michael had advised this was something he would be getting done.
This meant that what Michael wanted done wouldn’t be achievable, so we came up with a different solution!
Chris advised Michael that an alternative solution would be to install 2x LED strip lights in aluminum track spanning the length of the pergola. The LED lights would have a diffuser cover placed over the top allowing the light to spread nicely around the pergola area.
Let’s not forget the fan Michael also wanted installed. Chris recommended a PVC white duct to run the cable for the fan back to the weather proof switch. The white duct would nicely colour match the ceiling colour of the pergola.
Michael went ahead with Chris’ recommendation & we think the tailored solution really speaks for itself.
A tailored outdoor lighting solution that really brings Michael’s pergola area to life – and left Michael incredibly happy (if he does say so himself).
