Wall, awning, and sign RLM lights are specialized fixtures that are ideal for outdoor lighting of retail or commercial buildings. RLM stands for reflective luminaire manufacturer, and is descriptive of this type of lamp’s industrial style and specific shade design that helps to control where light is reflected. The structure of an RLM light also frequently features a long mounted neck or “gooseneck” that adds even more control of the lighting positioning by aiming the lamp back towards the wall it is mounted on. This downlight design helps to prevent upward light transmission and minimizes light pollution. Gooseneck lights in this style are a great outdoor lighting option when it comes to highlighting architectural features, outdoor art or signage.
When shopping for wall, awning and sign RLM lights, keep an eye out for features such as adjustable shades and customizable mounting options, as well as safety certifications such as UL listing. All of these can help you ensure that you get exactly the right lighting for your space. Yet, all these functional options do not mean that you have to sacrifice style; RLM fixtures come in a huge range of styles to complement any taste. These lamps lend themselves particularly well to retro and nautical designs, as well as more modern looks. Yet, almost all of these will also bring a somewhat industrial tone to a space and offer remarkable durability that works just as well for commercial and residential usage.
