12 Volt Lighting Now Offers Outdoor Deck Lighting

San Fernando, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2012

12 Volt Lighting, a leading online source of low voltage outdoor lighting and LED landscape lighting, has announced that they now offer LED outdoor deck lighting products from top manufacturers, such as Orbit, Corona, Kichler, Hinkley and more. These products join 12 Volt Lightings already extensive line of outdoor lighting systems, including solar lighting, 12 volt deck lighting and 12 volt outdoor path lighting products, such as flood lights, spotlights, in-ground well products, hanging lights and more.

Outdoor decks are gaining in popularity for parties, family meals or just relaxing in the sun. But when the sun goes down, many decks lose their usefulness because they lack lighting. Outdoor deck lighting extends the usability of the deck, improves its appearance and creates a safe and pleasant atmosphere for entertaining or relaxing on a warm evening. But many homeowners hesitate to take on the expense and trouble of hiring a contractor to install lighting.

LED outdoor lighting provides a cost effective way to improve visibility outside the home and enhance the aesthetic design of yards and decks. These low-voltage lighting systems are easy for non-professionals to design and install, and most building codes do not require the use of a professional contractor for installation. Most 12 volt outdoor lighting systems can be installed in a matter of hours, using simple hand tools such as screwdrivers and wire cutters, and many manufacturers provide detailed, easy-to-follow instruction guides. Low voltage lighting products are also safer than 120-volt systems, offer great design flexibility and can withstand wet or moist environments.

Outdoor deck lighting can be used on most surfaces and are available in flush mounted or surface mounted models. Surface mounted products can be installed without creating large holes in the wall or deck surface. Flush-mounted models require that a hole be cut to insert the fixture.

Outdoor deck lighting fixtures are available in plastic, aluminum, brass, stainless steel and copper, in a wide variety of designs and configurations for perimeter lighting, illumination of walls and railings, floor lighting, pathway lighting, accent lights and hanging lights. Each deck lighting system uses a self contained transformer that plugs into a standard house electrical outlet.

12 Volt Lighting provides online assistance in the selection and design of the right system for your needs, including choosing the proper transformer, wire and connectors to complete your outdoor deck lighting project quickly and easily. The company was founded by a landscaping contractor who was frustrated by repeated problems in ordering outdoor landscape lighting and wanted to simplify the process. Shopping online with 12 Volt Lighting is fast and easy, and all transactions are protected by a secure online shopping cart system.

Kids Outdoor Clothing UK Retailer Wellies And Worms Announces New Features For Easier Ordering

(PRWEB) June 08, 2012

Childrens online store Wellies and Worms is taking the hassle out of shopping by introducing a series of upgrades to make buying childrens clothing and travel accessories even easier.

The kids outdoor clothing retailer which specialises in childrens raincoats and wellies, as well as summer items such as baby swimwear, has just completed a major upgrade of its Magento Commerce shopping cart system from v1.3.2.3 to v1.6.2.0 to enable it to improve the functionality of the site. The upgrade, which was carried out by Bristol based digital agency C3Media.co.uk, means the retailer will now be able to introduce a series of front and backend improvements to the site.

Chief amongst those is the use of Sage Pays new token system which means existing customers will be able to use saved credit and debit card details the next time they order, whilst still maintaining complete data security.

Wellies and Worms owner Graham Cox said: In business the customer is king and its important to make life as smooth and easy for her – or him – as possible when it comes to browsing and purchasing online.”

After all, one of the reasons the customer has probably come online to begin with is because they dont have the time to go out to the shops to hunt for clothing or luggage and are looking to make a quick purchase. The last thing they want is to be sitting huddled over a computer for an hour trying to work out how to put a final payment through.

The company also plans to rapidly increase its use of social media throughout the site to increase brand awareness and sales. Graham continues, the magento upgrade allows us to install some new social media extensions on the site. Besides Facebook and Twitter integrations, Pinterest and Google + are becoming increasingly influential social signals and we plan to use all these to drive sales and help out customers become advocates for the brand.

We know how people like to share with friends and family what theyve been doing or bought, especially when it comes to cute rainwear or swimwear for kids. Now they can do this at the simple click of a button, a far easier route than having to link up to the website.

The retailer has also installed a Follow Up Email extension which gives customers an opportunity to provide Wellies and Worms with valuable feedback about their order. And via an embedded link it also allows customers to continue shopping where they left off without having to resume their order from the beginning. In addition, this extension means the company can notify a customer when a particular good theyve been looking for is in stock and available to purchase.
