Lighting fixtures in tropical weather, Mérida, Yucatán, México
Merida’s weather is so wet and warm. The most weather-resistant lighting fixtures are the ones made of fiberglass, concrete and stone. And the less weather-resistant are the ones made of aluminum and laminated iron, specially outdoors.
You can get fans with PVC or plastic blades so they won’t get wet and its blades won’t look like if they were falling down.
If you have any trees in your patio we recommend to have some overhead luminaires, for example in the tree trunk so in that way they won’t have direct ground contact and your lighting fixtures will have more durability.
We really hope our tips will be useful for you and that you enjoy the lighting of your house here in Mérida.
