Festoon Lighting Sydney

If you’re looking for beautiful decorative lighting for your outdoor area, then you’re in the right place. That’s because…

I’ll take you through how to choose festoon lighting for your place right here in Sydney, because with the right festoon lights you'll get the lighting effect you’re after. And more, I'll show you an easy installation process and a whole lot more.

What’s The Most Important Thing I Need To Know About Festoon Lights Before I Make Any Purchase?

To create a beautiful outdoor area of an evening, the colour of the light produced, and the brightness of the light has a significant impact on how your area looks and feels. The light brightness is the difference between decorative lighting or feeling like you're caught in spotlights.

If the globe is too bright and the light colour is sterile and unwelcoming, you won’t get a beautiful ambient outdoor entertaining area.

You’re looking for bulbs that are 2200k warm white because they produce a beautiful ambient glow. And you want a bulb for your festoon lights that’s under 300lms, and make sure it’s dimmable.

What lumens?

Light brightness is measured in lumens, not watts. The higher the lumens the brighter the bulb is. If you get a high lumen bulb that’s not dimmable, your area looks like a football field lit up.

Festoon Lighting FAQs

Can I dim the festoon lights?

It depends on who you purchase your festoon lights from in Sydney. All of the LED bulbs we stock are dimmable.

Festoon lighting is mood lighting, festoon lighting isn’t about super-bright light. Think soft ambient decorative lighting.

Dimmable LED bulbs are best because you can control the exact amount of light brightness you want in your area.

I’ll say this once more because so many get this part wrong. If it's too bright you're not creating an ambient mood. And get dimmable bulbs otherwise you’ll regret it.

Can you join festoon lights together?

Yes, all of our festoon lighting is made with water-proof joiners which are built into the cables, so you can keep joining lengths together. You simply push together and do up the thread for a water-proof seal.

What distance can you run the festoon lights?

With the 240V festoon lights, we have customers running over 100m of lights in one run.

With our 24V low voltage festoon lights, we have customers running over 100m.

Can you leave festoon lights out permanently in Sydney weather?

Yes, you leave your festoon lights out however, it depends on the quality and how they are made.

If you’re looking to leave your festoon lights out permanently and they will be exposed to full Sydney weather, get the highest water-proof rated lights you can. IP67 is a high water-proof rating.

Some areas in Sydney cop some big storms, if your area is one of them, you're probably best of with 24v low voltage festoon lights with shatter-proof LED bulbs.

Are festoon lights waterproof?

Yes, they are. When you’re looking at water-proof-rated festoon lights you’re looking for their IP Rating. The higher the IP rating the higher the water-proof rating the product has.

We have two types of festoon lighting systems 240V and 24V low voltage. The difference between the two systems is the voltage. And glass 240V LED bulbs v 24V Shatter-Proof LED Bulbs.

How do you hang festoon lights for the best decorative lighting effect?

If you’re going to leave your festoon lights up on a permanent basis, it’s advised to attach your lights to a support cable.

Why?

Because instead of your lights only being supported in a couple of spots, you now have many support points. And this looks neat and tidy.

For spans over 4 meters you are best off with a support wire.

We have festoon hanging kits with all the parts you need so you can quickly and easily hang your lights.

Should You Get Glass Or Shatter-Proof PVC Bulbs For Your Place In Sydney NSW?

Many of our commercial customers get the 24V system with the Shatter-Proof PVC bulbs because they like the safety of the low voltage, and the fact bulbs can’t break.

If the area you want to light is covered and you’re not concerned with bulbs ever breaking, then the 240V system with glass bulbs is great.

The differences between the 240V system and the 24V low voltage system. Is the voltage, and the bulbs. Glass vs Shatter-Proof PVC.

Should You Get Commercial Grade Or Standard Festoon Lighting?

Both our 240V and 24V low voltage festoon lighting is premium commercial-grade quality. We don’t have different grades of lighting.

Other companies offer a standard system below commercial grade quality. We see no point in making a standard product that is inferior to our commercial-grade quality.

The Biggest Mistake Most Make When Purchasing Festoon Lights

Kid Facepalming

Get Globes They Can’t Dim

I can’t say exactly how bright or dull you need your lights in your outdoor area. That’s why all our bulbs are dimmable.

Turn up, turn down, you choose the perfect amount of light.

Get Ugly Bulbs

Ugly bulbs devalue the appeal of your lighting. People love looking at beautiful bulbs.

Wrong Colour Light Output

If your outdoor area has similar light colour to an operating room, you got it wrong.

Warm white 2200K gives your outdoor area a beautiful ambient glow which creates an inviting, calming feel.

Buy Cheap Lights Then Look To Get All The Parts They Need Else Where

If you can’t get all the parts you need from one place like extension cables, parts to hang your lights, and other bits to make your job easy. Buy off someone who knows the products inside out and can help you with everything.
