Azek Post Cap Light

Decks aren’t just for daytime anymore. With Azek deck lighting you can easily imagine yourself, feet up, watching the moon rise and the stars come out.  The only thing that may be stopping you are the questions that arise and details needed during any light installation. Easily find the answers you need at Azek lighting to make your nighttime deck dreams a reality.

Our customers commonly ask  how many lights can be installed with one Azek light transformer?  The 100 watt Azek transformer can handle up to 90 watts, to prevent overloading. Because Azek deck lighting utilizes LED bulbs, a single 100W transformer is sufficient for most lighting projects. The azek-light-fixture-watt-chartfixture wattage chart, provided by Azek, makes it a breeze to calculate how many lights per transformer you can install.  For example: when installing the Azek Post Cap Light, with a wattage of 4W, you can install up to 22 lights per transformer.  That question and many others will be answered with Azek’s straightforward and well designed installation guide. Azek Installation Guide

Offered in a variety of lighting designs and options, you are sure to create the ambiance you are looking for.  Azek lighting comes in 5 styles: Post Cap, Lighted Island Cap, Accent, Under Rail, Stair Riser and In-Deck, to suit any placement. The Azek dimmer accessory, with remote, also gives you the flexibility to adjust the lighting level.  Then, to take your options one step further, Azek lighting works with both Azek and TimberTech deck and railing products.
