What does Dark Sky compliant mean?

Dark Sky compliant outdoor wall lighting fits a set of criteria established by the International Dark Sky Association or IDA. This group is dedicated to reducing light pollution by conducting research and issuing guidelines regarding how to design lighting to minimize sky glow.

What are the benefits of Dark Sky compliant lighting? Dark Sky compliant outdoor wall lighting is bright enough to provide the necessary illumination for security/safety but does not give off excessive amounts of light. This reduces light pollution and allows for a clearer view of the night sky. Dark Sky fixtures also give off fewer blue light emissions than conventional lighting.

What types of wall lighting are Dark Sky compliant? Most Dark Sky compliant outdoor wall lighting features downward-facing lamps. The lighting is typically fully shielded, meaning that a shade covers at least the top portion of the light.

What does Turtle Friendly mean?

Turtlefriendly lighting is lighting specifically designed to minimize the ecological impact that traditional lighting can have on turtles and other wildlife, such as beach mice and shorebirds, especially near oceans and beaches. Lighting must be shielded and use low wattage incandescent lamping, preferably yellow, amber or red.  LEDs are typically used to brighten an area, making them inappropriate for turtle friendly lighting areas. ‘Turtle friendly lighting’ has enough length to ‘hide’ the bulb, is only open on the bottom with no perforations or other openings, uses the preferred colors of lamping, and uses low wattage bulbs to diffuse the light display.
