Outdoor string lights


Outdoor string lights are a special type of lighting that consists of a series of bulbs arranged in a row, powered by a single electrical cable. They are a much-loved lighting choice because they offer even and diffuse lighting, making any space warm and welcoming and giving it a magical and somewhat romantic touch. They can also be used to beautify any indoor or outdoor space, as they are made in different styles and colors. Finally, precisely because of their characteristic shape, string lights are easy to install and can be removed and repositioned at any time. This means that they can be used in a variety of environments, including living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, offices, kitchens, and bathrooms. They are also an ideal lighting choice for outdoor spaces, such as porches, patio and terraces, even just for a special evening or a party.

What is meant by outdoor string lights?

Essentially, outdoor string lights are a series of LED lights connected to each other, hung from a cable suspended between two points. Outdoors, lamp posts, tree branches, or support poles are usually used to keep the string lights suspended in the air, or the string lights can be attached directly to the walls or ceilings of buildings.

However, when choosing outdoor string lights, it is important to keep in mind that they must be waterproof and weatherproof, because they may be exposed to rain and weather conditions, even if they are not left outside all the time. For this reason, depending on their outdoor placement, it will be necessary to evaluate the purchase of a product with a certain IP protection rating. This value (Ingress Protection) indicates the level of resistance of an electronic or mechanical device to the penetration of dust and water. It is a classification standard used to identify the level of protection of a product against external agents and to provide guidance to users on possible uses based on the environment in which they are located. The IP protection rating is indicated by two digits: the first digit indicates the level of protection against the penetration of dust, and the second digit indicates the level of protection against the penetration of water. Numbers range from 0 to 6 for dust protection and from 0 to 9 for water protection. For example, a product with an IP65 rating offers maximum protection against dust and excellent protection against water splashes (here is a post explaining in detail the differences between the different outdoor protection grades).

How to choose the right outdoor string lights?

Firstly, it's important to consider the size and shape of your outdoor space. If you have a spacious garden, you could opt for a longer string with many lights to create a wide and bright effect. If you have a smaller space, a shorter string may be sufficient to create the desired atmosphere. One of the best things about outdoor string lights is that they offer many customization options. For example, on our website you can choose between: string lights with shades and string lights without shades, string lights with two, string lights with three, string lights with five or even string lights with ten sockets.
