Trex® Outdoor DeckLighting™

Trex offers brilliant outdoor deck lighting for the whole backyard with exterior light fixtures that provide energy-efficient illumination and impressive deckside ambience.

Safety First

LED deck lights provide a soft glow that lights the deck for easier wayfinding. They can be installed into the railing, stair risers or the deck itself.

Energy Efficient

Deck lights use long-life LEDs from CREE, a worldwide leader in energy-efficient lighting. Compared to incandescent, our deck lighting uses 75% less energy.
