Not all landscape lighting installations are the same, especially with higher wattage installations like Unique Lighting Fixtures. With over 20 years of experience designing and installing low voltage outdoor landscape lighting systems from Jupiter to Delray Beach and throughout most areas in South Florida, Custom Lighting of America’s professional installers have learned a thing or two along the way that sets us apart from the competition and adds value to your lighting installation..
A prime example is our premium installation method that we call the CLA-HUB Wiring System that Custom Lighting of America uses whenever we install components from Unique Lighting Manufacturing. Unique makes premium brass casted fixtures that typically run at a higher wattage than other systems. The CLA-HUB Wiring System is the ultimate In-Line fuse-protected wiring system these high wattage systems. Allowing us to size the fuse according to load or wire size, thus making troubleshooting accessible, convenient, and fast. You wouldn’t purchase a home or an automobile without fuse protection, we feel your outdoor lighting system warrants the same respect!
Why the CLA-HUB System is better?
Wire connections are the weakest point of any low voltage installation and are susceptible to wicking and water infiltration. Utilizing the the CLA-HUB installation method reduces the number of connections by up to 80% versus standard wiring methods. This means less maintenance, less lamp outages and easier troubleshooting. In addition the CLA-HUB method utilizes less wire and saves you money.
• Each CLA-HUB acts as a central location for connections, taking the guess work out of troubleshooting
• Protect connections from moisture to minimize wicking and corrosion
• Reduce the number of connection points, wire and labor
• Distribute proper voltage evenly to every fixture
• Flexibility in fixture location and future expansion
How the CLA-HUB System works.
Competitors wiring systems typically use one of three methods of installation, the “T”, Daisy Chain or Loop method. Each of these system are prone to failure and have several disadvantages over the CLA-HUB method that we have perfected. You can’t see the difference after the installation because everything is buried, but years down the road, each of these methods tend to fail faster and make it difficult to diagnose and repair a system.
The differences are clear:
• Secondary fuse for protection included at the HUB
• Only need to check voltage at the hub vs. every fixture
• One point of connection per home run
• Connections protected in direct burial enclosure
• Equal voltage to every lamp
