Festoon Lights

Decorative Lighting Company Festoon system is the best on the market.

Decorative Lighting Company supply festoon lights that are safe 24 Volt, robust commercial quality and event grade. Festoon belts come in either 1M or 500mm bulb spacings with screw together connectable belts lengths at 5, 10 and/or 25M lengths. We have an extensive range of LED bulb options which are shatterproof, dimmable and replaceable. In addition, we offer a great selection of accessories like blank extension lead, bulb droppers, splitter belts and dimmer units.

In recent years, festoon lights have become a must-have accessory for backyard bashes, outdoor corporate events and many other distinguished gatherings throughout Melbourne and its surrounds. With a design that’s somewhat similar to fairy lights, festoon lights are different in that they utilise regularly sized light bulbs. They emit the same sense of timeless charm and wonder that lights from bygone eras did, while being cost-effective to run, 100% safe to operate and requiring little to no maintenance.

100% safe in all weather conditions

Festoon lights are able to effortlessly add radiance and resplendence to whatever area they adorn, and where, how and when you choose to display them is entirely up to you. Owing to their tremendous versatility, the possibilities are near limitless. They can brighten outdoor areas of cafeterias, eateries, bars, restaurants, or readily used to quickly add a touch of energy and spectacle to backyard parties or even ritzy post-wedding celebrations.

While Melbourne festoon lights look incredible when used in a commercial setting, they look equally impressive when used around the backyard, whether it be dangled around the perimeter of an alfresco dining area, wound throughout a balcony, placed around the boundary of a swimming pool and the list goes on.

Use festoon lighting to beautify food vehicles and pavilions, illuminate walkways and staircases at corporate events or parties, wrap around shrubs for a wonderfully mesmerising look, or hang from tree branches to create a truly stunning spectacle. As festoon lights can extend to the full length that their transformers allow them to, they’re a fantastic solution for all residential and commercial events.
