Vivex Outdoor Lighting

Vivex lighting for coastal & seaside climates has a weatherproof new stylish alternative to stainless steel and clunky resin. Maxim Vivex™, a new technology, and material by Maxim Lighting and ET2 Contemporary Lighting, withstands the wrath of Mother Nature from coastal to desert conditions.

Maxim Vivex

“Typically, harsher climates in the Southwest and coastal areas use stainless steel outdoor lighting fixtures but the material deteriorates over time because of the salt erosion. Vivex sets a new standard with a longer lifespan and more designer-focused fixtures” explains Naomi Sperling, Chief Operations Officer of Maxim Lighting.

 

Non-Corrosive & UV Resistant Lighting

The non-corrosive, UV resistant proprietary finish of each Vivex fixture provides the armor against harsh elements of sun, wind, salt and water. Ideal for moist climates such as waterfront homes and dry conditions, each Vivex fixture comes with a three-year warranty and is tested through 300 rigorous hours of use.

Durable Outdoor Fixtures

“The inspiration for the technology came from the paint finishes on boats built to withstand harsh conditions. Maxim Lighting interpreted this marine technology into nuanced finishes with texture, depth and shading to create authentic and highly durable outdoor fixtures,” explains Sperling.

Twice As Strong as Resin Lighting

The trade secret to Vivex’s intricate detailing and durability is an injection mold process far superior to die cast and resin molds and a patented material of ground marble powder and latex bonded together with adenosine triphosphate that is twice as strong as resin. “Because resin tends to be a thicker material, it doesn’t produce elaborate design details,” says Sperling.

Style & Design Outdoor Lighting

Vivex fixtures such as the Newbury and Lexington collections with their intricate lacework make stunning focal points flanking the front door or garage.

The Montecito collection also enhances curb appeal with its Mediterranean-inspired designs with ornate detailing finished in an interplay of highlights, shading and texture.

Maxim Lighting artisans hand paint each Vivex outdoor lighting fixture with a dark base coat and sealant that won’t fade and erode to white like other fixtures over time.

Long Lasting Outdoor Lighting

“There is no real need to replace Vivex fixtures in five years, the typical time frame for replacement, because they still look good and perform well,” says Sperling.

    Hello, Vivex is a material that the actual fixture is made out of. Bulbs are not made out of Vivex. You can certainly use LED bulbs in Vivex outdoor fixtures (as long as they are rated for outdoor use).

    I have been looking for an authentic light for the outdoor areas around the house. I would like to learn more about the Vivex bulbs, are they using a led based technology? I would prefer solar powered led bulbs for the harsh weather conditions in our region as they have proven their durability.

Blog - Getting the Perfect Gift for Your Parents

The holidays are quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time figuring out what to get for people. I find that the longer I have known somebody, the harder it is to find something that shows how much you value who they are as a person and how much you appreciate your relationship.

Parents. I’ve known them my whole life, so why is it so hard to find something for them? Dads are the number one hardest demographic to shop for, in my opinion. I try not to repeat gifts, which has resulted in me actually making presents for the last year or so. It is hard to find the time to create these items. I can’t speak for everyone with a dad, but based on my dad’s interests and our location, I have narrowed down a few items that I think he might like.

Blog - Cody's Movember Favorites - Gifts for the Men in Your Life

Black Friday starts before Halloween and Christmas trees hit the shelves in September, which means by now you’ve been inundated with countless promos and countless gift giving options. This can lead to what I call “paralysis of choice.” I feel well equipped to help with this sort of ailment, being that I spend well over 40 hours a week getting to know our 30,000 plus items.
