Outdoor Christmas Lighting

Everyone is familiar with traditional white or multi-coloured festoon lights decorating houses all over the country each year. These have now been brought up to date with the use of LEDs and maybe this year it's time to consider decorating the outside of your house with other Christmas lights that benefit from new technology to create dazzling effects. 

LED Christmas Lights

Stunningly bright and extremely versatile, LEDs have certainly stretched the limits of lighting displays over recent years and Christmas wouldn’t now be the same without these intense stars lighting up the sky.

An extendable LED light system represents the ultimate in reliable outdoor Christmas lighting. Robustly constructed using heavyweight cabling and weatherproof connectors, it is flexible enough to cover your house with myriad of colours.

After plugging in your starter set you are only limited by your imagination with a system capable of powering up to 100 metres of lights wrapping the house in multi-coloured shimmering curtains of LEDs, strings of icicles or the illusion of falling snow.

Not only producing outstanding results the extendable light system runs on 24v, so is very easy on your pocket.

Ice And Snow

Multi-action and Static Supabright lights come in a range of highly durable sets, maximum intensity LEDs forming intense strings and clusters of the brightest lights in rainbow colours.

Icicle lights have rightly become very popular and 'snowing' icicles are surprisingly energy efficient. Snow tubes are lines of brilliant white LEDs encased in a plastic tube or icicle. The microchip controlled LEDs illuminate in rapid succession to create a fantastic effect.

Rope Lighting is also a tried and tested arrangement. Weatherproof and using very strong cabling, the lights can be secured in the desired position by using small plastic tie straps. They can be static or have many function settings bringing your display to life.

Whether you want a dramatic hi-tech light show or something more restrained, there’s plenty of ideas to choose from that will turn even the most modest house into a icy evocation of a wintery scene, making it a preferred destination for the arrival Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve.
