Why Choose Copper and Brass for Outdoor Lighting Fixtures?

 By  

At Lanternland our lighting design team is often asked: Why choose copper and brass for outdoor lighting fixtures? In addition to its natural beauty, copper and brass are ideal for lanterns and outdoor lighting fixtures because it will never rust or corrode. Have you even seen a piece of iron or steel that was left out in the elements too long? Rust and corrosion quickly destroy aluminum and iron left out in the elements, particularly in damp environments.

For example, if you live near the ocean, you would not want to buy just any type of outdoor lighting. The salt air from the ocean can oxidize and destroy light fixtures made from cheaper materials such as aluminum. Only certain outdoor lighting fixtures like solid brass are recommended near the ocean.
When copper outdoor light fixtures or brass outdoor light fixtures are left out in the elements it will last for decades while developing a beautiful natural patina.

When you choose carefully, your outdoor lighting can last forever and copper designs by Lanternland work beautifully with any architectural style.  All copper and brass Lanternland lanterns are made from copper and brass in our Mesa, AZ factory just outside of Phoenix and Scottsdale. You can choose any style, size, and finish.
