Sign lights & Gooseneck Lights

What is a Gooseneck Light?

Gooseneck lighting refers to fixtures including outdoor barn lights and sign lights wherein the downward facing light extends away from the mounted fixture. These types of outdoor light fixtures are called gooseneck lights in reference to the often swooping, curved arm of the light. The term gooseneck light is also often used interchangeably with barn lights, because this style of lighting fixture is commonly used on classic farmhouses and barns.

Gooseneck lights often improve the curb appeal of a home or business, by accomplishing the goals of functionality, and aesthetic appeal. In other words, they not only improve the appearance of your home, office or store front, but outdoor gooseneck lighting also allows for you to specifically position the direction of the light, to ensure your sign, door, or garage is illuminated precisely the way you want it.

Benefits of Gooseneck Barn Lights and Sign Lights

Outdoor LED gooseneck lighting is a particularly popular choice for sign lighting for businesses, thanks to wind resistant design, and weather resistant materials and finishes, along with providing virtually limitless customization options. In addition to being able to direct the light precisely where you want it, gooseneck lighting can be upgraded to include the use of motion sensors, for increased security lighting. Likewise, you may choose to upgrade your sign lights with solar photocells, which convert sunlight into energy, resulting in improved performance, and reducing the amount of electricity you use. Outdoor barn lights are also known for their easy installation, and the low maintenance they require.

Where to Use Gooseneck Lights

For residences, outdoor gooseneck lighting is a popular choice for framing front porches, garages, sheds, guesthouses, patios, and decks. But gooseneck lights also function, and look beautiful inside homes, including over vanities in bathrooms, or as spotlights for particularly special artwork or décor in your home. For commercial spaces, outdoor barn lights are very popular choices to illuminate business names on buildings or signs, and to frame entrances to small businesses, restaurants, retail stores, and industrial/warehouse spaces.

Gooseneck Lights: Versatility and Durability

The main reason that gooseneck lighting is so popular for both homes and commercial spaces is due to its versatility and durability. Barn lights are available in myriad finishes to match your overall design aesthetic. For example, outdoor gooseneck lighting is available in finishes including classic metal, bronze metal, vintage style metal, raw copper, granite silver, solid brass, and in bold painted finishes from red to white. Likewise, outdoor gooseneck lights come in many shapes, sizes and styles, giving you countless choices.

Depending upon the look you’re going for, you’ll also find features such as fixed or adjustable head pieces, various voltage options, weatherproof design, optional angle glare shields, give you the greatest amount of choice for your outdoor and sign lighting needs. Barn lights are also available with traditional swooping arms, or with modern, angular straight arms, or as LED linear sign lights, or spotlights, allowing you to create a modern, rustic, traditional, or sophisticated look.
