In Beneito Faure we are experts in LED lighting and we have been working for years with a wide range of products for the outdoor lighting.

In this article, we expose the essential aspects to assess when choosing good lighting for outdoor spaces following the recommendations of our technical and commercial department.

First of all, you have to take into account where you intend to install the product. In this case, being abroad, all kinds of factors must be taken into account.

On the one hand, we find the environmental factor. If you intend to install a luminaire outdoors, it must have a degree of protection IP54 or higher, so that it can withstand water or direct rain. A luminaire  poorly insulated can stop working or do it incorrectly  due to excess humidity.

IP54 : Waterproof / Dustproof.

IP65: Protected against jets of water.

IP67: Dust proof / Immersion for 30 minutes.

Second, the type of material what the product is made of.

It should be noted that there are more suitable materials than others. For example, him INOX304 offers high corrosion protection. There are also other types of protection, such as paint Azko Novel for protection in saline environments or for the product to integrate stainless steel hardware.

Another determining factor when choosing the type of outdoor lighting is to take into account where will it be installed (on the wall of a terrace, on the floor of the garden, embedded in a false ceiling, in a lamppost …) For this, there are specific products for each case.

We cannot forget the importance of the installation process. This installation must be carried out properly to avoid future problems with the operation of each product.


It should be noted that there is the possibility of installing luminaires that work with solar energy. This will avoid carrying out electrical installations and will provide us with significant energy savings.
