Holiday lighting installations should be magical – twinkling displays projecting points of light and perfect pixels into festive scenes, not flickering and fading shows requiring repeat service calls. There's a silent lurker threatening both your installation performance and your energy efficiency: galvanic corrosion. This electrochemical process weakens connections and compromises light string and bulb performance, leading to series failures, dimming, frustrated customers, and costly service calls.


Traditional Lights: Prone to Performance Issues

Many conventional light strings fall short performance-wise due to weak connections, lack of proper seal, and subpar materials, which contribute to their rapid decline. Traditional molded husks allow moisture to seep in, while steel wiring accelerates corrosion. The consequences? Short circuits, flickering lights, and tripped GFCIs, leading to service calls and customer dissatisfaction.
