*Revere the Dark Sky: Certain municipalities throughout the United States are now calling for all outdoor lighting fixtures on newly constructed homes to be “Dark Sky” compliant.

To protect our view of the nighttime sky from being invaded by “light pollution”, Dark Sky compliant fixtures shield illumination to focus light downward over designated areas.

Outdoor lighting that is “dark sky compliant” curbs light pollution and does not obstruct our view of the stars and planets.

Be sure to incorporate shielded fixtures into your outdoor lighting scheme and position fixtures to avoid glare and superfluous light from shedding unwanted light toward your neighbors’ homes.
