Straits Lighting is a premier industrial and commercial LED lighting manufacturer based in the United States that specializes in high performance LED outdoor lighting solutions for both commercial and industrial applications.
As the designer and manufacturer of our fixtures, we at Straits stand behind and take pride in the products we supply, which is increasingly uncommon in today’s busy LED lighting marketplace.
LED Outdoor Lighting Products
Your Lighting Business Partner
One of the biggest differences between our business model and that of other manufacturers is that we handle the manufacturing of our products ourselves. Most lighting suppliers in the industry source their products from outside manufacturers and rebrand them as their own. With Straits, we are both the manufacturer and supplier of our products which means our supply chain is more efficient and streamlined, resulting in considerable savings for the end customer.
Because we are in control of the manufacturing of our lights, we have the final say in the quality, design and features of each individual lighting fixture. This ensures that our lights are optimally tailored to each of our customers specific application needs, based on our extensive feedback over the years. As a result, our designs are purpose focused, energy efficient and highly competitive in the lighting industry. When you select Straits Lighting as your LED lighting supplier, you are choosing a solid business partner to brighten up your business opportunities.
Why Choose Straits LED Outdoor Lighting?
Outdoor lighting covers a broad range of different lighting applications, from landscape lighting to parking lot and exterior building lighting. In these applications, the primary goal of lighting is not only providing increased visibility but also improving safety and security for the area. As the benefits of LED lighting have become more apparent, older generations of traditional lighting are being retired in favor of modern LED technology. This demand has led the lighting industry to be inundated with a nearly endless variety of different brands, manufacturers and styles of outdoor lighting fixtures.
Unfortunately for lighting contractors this endless array of lighting fixtures brings with it a wide variance in fixture quality and performance, which can make choosing the right manufacturer difficult. This is a vital decision for contractors because choosing the wrong contractor can compromise their large scale projects with unreliable or underperforming light fixtures.
Luckily for contractors, the choice is easy with Straits. We excel in the manufacturing of top quality fixtures that are constructed with premium LED chips and reliable driver circuitry. In fact, all of our outdoor lighting fixtures are rated for a minimum service life of 50,000 hours. We have seen fixtures even exceed this under ideal ambient temperatures and environmental conditions.
Compared to other LED manufacturers, our outdoor light fixtures have a considerably longer real world service life, due to variances in the construction of these fixtures and how that is impacted by environmental factors. In addition to that, outdoor lighting fixtures produced by Straits have a significantly higher CRI ratings than the competition – improving visibility and most importantly safety for higher traffic outdoor applications.
LED Outdoor Light Supplier
There are several benefits to purchasing lighting directly from the manufacturer, especially in terms of cost savings as well as reduced lead time. This is especially true for outdoor lighting contractors due to the sheer volume of fixtures purchased. It is for this reason that Straits sells directly to contractors instead of just suppliers like almost every other manufacturer on the market. We have seen a significant benefit to working directly with lighting contractors and electrical professionals – particularly in simplifying logistics and reducing the costs per unit.
The reduction in costs helps our contractors to improve job margins, resulting in an increase in repeat business. We firmly believe that this business model focused on the mutually beneficial relationship between manufacturers and contractors is directly responsible for the success Straits has achieved since our founding.
This business model not only results in significant price savings, lead time is also improved quite a bit. With all of our products stocked in our Wixom, Michigan warehouse, there is only a 1-2 business day turnaround time after an order has been placed. This provides contractors with the quickest possible material delivery, ensuring the consistent continuation of their projects. For projects where design plans are changed, this is even more important as this usually happens on a tight schedule.
On top of the benefits of better pricing and quick shipping times, our lights are considered to be among the top performing in the lighting industry. Fixtures manufactured by Straits feature excellent energy efficiency ratings as well as class leading service lives which add up to significant cost savings for end users and contractors. Combined with the high lighting accuracy of our LED chips, choosing Straits as your primary lighting fixture supplier is the best way to make lighting jobs easier to sell as well as ensuring your customers end up satisfied with a superior lighting product.
LED Outdoor Light Wholesale
In the contracting world, every dollar counts for those who are purchasing light fixtures in bulk. It is for this reason that working directly with a manufacturer such as Straits is the most logical choice for smart business owners and material buyers. Because we are both the manufacturer and the supplier, we have the ability to offer exceptionally low prices directly to contractors in the field that would normally be reserved only for suppliers. When combined with extraordinary customer service and quick shipping turnaround, it should be no surprise that we have some of the highest rates of repeat and referral customers in the industry.
In order to maximize cost effectiveness and streamline material procurement for projects, contractors try to use as many standardized fixture types as possible, thus reducing the number of different makes, models and sizes in inventory. This is especially true in basic staple projects such as warehouses, big box retailers and office space jobs. For these types of projects, the most logical course of action for contractors is to purchase these fixtures in bulk in order to reduce the cost per unit.
When a lighting contractor purchases directly from a manufacturer instead of through a middleman such as a supplier, they receive the maximum discount and cost savings possible. For professional electricians and contractors who want to maximize the success of their business, this is one of the best ways to save money.
Although these lights are offered at wholesale prices, they provide class leading performance capabilities, rock solid durability and longevity for trouble free service. This final point is where the decision to work with Straits as your bulk lighting supplier really comes into its own. Having the ability to readily acquire a reserve stock of top rate outdoor LED lighting fixtures for use in not only current but also future jobs is simply good business. When combined with the knowledge of the performance capabilities of these fixtures and their place in the lighting industry, contractors will now have the increased confidence necessary to sell more lighting projects and grow their business.
