Icy surfaces can create danger around your Nashville home

Icy surfaces can create danger around your Nashville home.

In recent weeks much of the country has seen more than its fair share of wintry weather. From snow, ice and sleet to wind gusts that chill to the bone meaning that cold-than-normal winter the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicted has come to fruition! Winter weather can make any type of travel dangerous, whether it is traveling by car to the grocery, or venturing from your home to your yard, freezing conditions can transform a wet surface into an accident waiting to happening very quickly. Icy steps, sidewalks, driveways and paths can turn a trip to the mailbox into a trip to the emergency room, especially when the area is dark!

Darkness doubles the chances of an accident on slick outdoor surfaces because you cannot visually determine their condition and act. The addition of outdoor lighting around areas of frequent travel will help reduce the chances of getting hurt and will improve the overall safety in, and around, your home during every season.

 

  • Outdoor stair lighting Nashville

    Lighting along these steps is not only beautiful but enhances safety too!

    Lighting stairways for safety: Stairs need to be made clearly visible to prevent trips or falls. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville focuses on two distinct areas when we add lighting to the stairs around your home. This includes installing lighting on any railing, and installing lighting on the vertical area of the step itself. Both of these methods will help you and your family safely navigate stairs through increased visibility.

    Lighting paths for safety: Increasing visibility along paths and sidewalks will allow safe navigation by raising awareness of ice, snow or any object that may be present. This includes limbs or debris that can blow onto paths during spring and summer storms posing a safety hazard.

  • Lighting your home’s entrances for safety: Poorly lit entrance points into your home can post a safety hazard. The entrance itself should be clearly visible in addition to the stairs and path that lead to your door.
  • Nashville outdoor lighting in the snow

    Lighting the landscape for safety: A well-lit landscape enables you to “see” areas that may require special attention during wintry weather. Landscape lighting illuminates the areas around your home to enable you to stay a well-informed homeowner or the conditions around your property.

  • Lighting timers or lighting control automation can help further safety:  Adding timers or lighting control automation will ensure the lights are on when you need them most, every evening, in every season!
