Looking for an excuse to get some exterior gooseneck light? Here's your sign (light)! AQLighting Group is proud to present the AQDXLS-930 aluminum outdoor sign lighting, now available in contractor's choice 2 pack combo. We offer a matte textured black or glossy earthen bronze finish. The AQDXLS-930 series sign light features heavy duty, industrial grade cast aluminum, which is wind resistant and perfect for harsh outdoor environments. The mounting canopy also features 2 knockouts to support autonomous lighting controls like motion sensors and photocells. The fixture's arm assembly is heavily reinforced, sporting a thicker diameter than standard sign light fixtures and a head assembly with saw-toothed adjustable 180° swivel to aim the sign shade in your desired direction.
Twice as Nice Gooseneck Sign Light
The AQDLXS-930 isn't a fixture you can just use once, so we've created a contractor's choice 2 pack for additional cost savings for multi-fixture installation projects. Included in each box will be two of the heavy duty, commercial grade gooseneck sign lights, in your choice of textured black or earth bronze, and everything you'll need to complete their installation.
Excellent Outdoor Gooseneck Lighting Durability
Since the majority of sign light installations occur outdoors, AQLighting designed the AQDXLS-930 series to be able to weather harsh environmental conditions. The arm assembly is much thicker than its rivals and the saw-toothed swivel assembly securely locks the sign light shade into the desired angle. Every component of the fixture has been upgraded with durability in mind.
Mounting Installation Improvements
With everything you need in the box, this gooseneck outdoor lighting fixture comes ready for installation. Each of our AQDXLS-930 sign lights features an improved mounting canopy which boasts 2 knockouts capable of supporting optional lighting controls, such as motion sensors or photocells. Also, the mounting canopy houses a 12" wiring lead and junction box mounting bracket to attach to any standard electrical light box in seconds.

When installing gooseneck lighting in your home, office, or commercial building, it is important to keep in mind that wind resistance is crucial to the safety of your property and in turn, your wallet. Poorly designed outdoor gooseneck lights cannot withstand severe weather and wind gusts, resulting in potential damage to not only the fixture itself, but also to the surface it is mounted to.
