Garage Door Safety Considerations for People Who Weld in Their Garages

Posted by on 5:20 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Garage Door Safety Considerations for People Who Weld in Their Garages

If you plan to do welding in your garage, safety needs to be your number one concern. Welding generates a lot of sparks and fumes, and in addition to removing combustibles and stocking your garage with a few fire extinguishers, you may want to make a safety modifications to your garage door. Whether you are designing a new garage and shopping for new garage doors or trying to modify your existing space, here are some features to keep in mind: 1. Lots of light from windows The light in some garages can make it hard to see what you are welding. In addition to hanging lights over your workspace, you may also want to boost the levels of natural light in your garage. Garage doors with lots of windows can help. Having ample amounts of lights also helps to boost your safety because it makes it easier to see what you are doing, reducing the chances of mistakes. 2. Garage door windows that open Ventilation is also key for your safety whilst welding, and to ensure that you have ample amounts of fresh air coming into your space and that dangerous fumes can exit the space, you may want to consider a garage door with windows that open. While the windows on traditional garage doors don’t open, you can find fiberglass or steel frame garage doors with windows that open. Typically, these windows swing out from the top and have a locking mechanism at the bottom, and they can have screens if you have a lot of insects in your area. If you are not in the market for a new garage door, talk with a garage door expert about adding openable windows to one of the panels in your existing garage door. 3. Garage door screens If you aren’t interested in buying a new garage door with opening and closing windows, you may just want to keep your garage door open while you work. This is particularly important if you are doing really smokey welding such as stick arc welding. Unfortunately, however, working with the door open minimises your privacy, and it allows leaves or other combustible debris to blow into your work area. To prevent this, consider investing in a garage door screen. These screens are easy to install on your own, and they fill the open space that’s created when your garage door is open. Ideally, you want a screen that is weighted at the bottom so that it doesn’t flap open in the wind, and in case a spark hits the screen, you also want it to be made of metal mesh heat-resistant material. 4. Fire-resistant garage door materials or welding curtains If you opt to work with the garage door closed, you need to ensure that the garage door is not likely to catch on fire easily. Fiberglass and metal doors work best in this situation, and you may want to stay away from wood garage doors. However, if you already have traditional wooden carriage doors, you may want to invest in a welding curtain. With the curtain, you have a few different options. If you are working with the garage door closed, you can hang the welding curtain over it to protect it from heat and sparks. Alternatively, if you have the door...

Reclaiming Old Timber? Five Safety Tips for You and the New-to-You Timber

Posted by on 5:48 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Reclaiming Old Timber? Five Safety Tips for You and the New-to-You Timber

Reclaimed timber gives a classic feel to a range of building projects, but if you want to use old wood, there are a few safety precautions to keep in mind. Take a look at these tips. They will help ensure that your reclaimed timber is safe to work with and likely to last as long as possible. 1. Check for soft rot. Before using your reclaimed timber, look it over carefully for rot. Visually inspect the outside. If you see any black rotten parts, press on them with a screw driver. If the wood crumbles in front of your eyes, the wood is partially rotten. Also look for unexplained sawdust on the wood — it can indicate that an insect has bored their way into the wood. Depending on the location of the rot, you may be able to cut it out, but if you cannot, do not use that piece of wood. In most cases, if the outside of the wood doesn’t appear to be rotten or bug infested, the inside is fine. 2. Test old paint for lead. If you are reclaiming timber from a structure that has been painted, make sure to check the paint for lead. Lead was used in building projects until the 1970s. You can buy lead testing kits at most hardware stores — they feature strips that you rub against the paint, and they change colour to indicate whether or not the paint has lead. If it has lead, you may want to hire a lead abatement professional to do your sanding for you. If you opt to do your own sanding, make sure you are in a well ventilated area and that you wear a HEPA filter mask to prevent yourself from breathing in lead particulates. Alternatively, paint over the lead-based paint to seal it in and skip the sanding. 3. Beware of hidden metal. Because of its past life, reclaimed wood often has nails or other hardware in it. If you are used to working with new timber, you will need to make a mental adjustment and prepare to work with wood that may be riddled with old hardware. For your safety, look over the wood for visible nails or screws. Use a hammer claw or a drill to remove this hardware. Also, remember that there may be old hardware buried in the wood. If you are trying to cut your timber, and your saw hits one of these old pieces of metal, the saw may be damaged. In addition, your arm may be uncomfortably jarred when you hit the hidden metal, or you may even lose your stability if you are sawing and standing. 4. Let the timber acclimate to your space. In addition to ensuring the timber is safe for you to use, you also have to ensure that your environment is safe for your timber. Reclaimed timber may react to the temperature and moisture in your space by shrinking or expanding, and if the timber shrinks or expands after it has been installed, that could ruin the integrity of the project. To prevent this effect, put your reclaimed timber in the room or outdoor area where you will be using it and let it acclimate to the climate in that space. 5. Work with a distributor. If...

Beyond Snow Load: Planning for Sliding Snow, Ice Dams and Falling Icicles in Your Building Design

Posted by on 7:23 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Beyond Snow Load: Planning for Sliding Snow, Ice Dams and Falling Icicles in Your Building Design

If you are working with a builder designer or architect to create a building that will be subject to ice and snow, you have to consider those elements in your design. Whether you are spearheading a project involving a hotel at a ski resort, a factory in an area with snowy winters or any other type of building, your design has to take into account whether or not the roof can handle the expected snow loads for that area. However, that isn’t the only thing you need to consider — you also need to think about ice build up, falling icicles, sliding chunks of snow and related issues. Besides load capacity, here are three other risks and annoyances you should consider when choosing your final design: 1. Sliding Snow If a large volume of snow accumulates on the roof of your building, in the right conditions, it can start to slide around the roof, and it can hit or damage mechanical equipment, roof seams, barriers around the roof, and other functional and decorative elements. This risk needs to be taken into account in the building’s design. Depending on your exact climate, you may want to consider a flat roof where the snow is less likely to slide, or you may want to build snow barriers around functional elements such as mechanical equipment and forgo decorative elements. 2. Ice Dams An ice dam is a ridge or dam of snow and ice around the perimetre of your building. Ice dams prevent moisture from reaching your gutters. As the snow melts, the water that can’t reach the gutters builds up behind the ice dams, and ultimately, the water can seep into your roof tiles, or its weight can put strain on the integrity of your roof. Ice dams occur when snow and ice start to melt on the roof. As the snow turns to water, it travels toward the edge of the roof. However, if the edge of the roof is colder than the middle, the water refreezes. This happens repeatedly until an ice dam occurs. To mitigate ice dams, consider adding a heat trace to the gutters of your building. A heat trace is a small heating element that runs through your gutters to prevent water from refreezing near them. Also, ask your building designer about putting a heat trace on the roof itself to create a path for water to flow. 3. Falling Snow and Icicles In addition to snow sliding around roofs and damaging them, snow can also fall off the roof. Similarly, icicles can form near ice dams, and they can fall on people or property below, damaging it. This can lead to liability and property damage concerns. There are a few things you can do to mitigate the risk of falling snow and icicles. Ideally, you should work with the direction of the sun and wind, and you should orient your building accordingly. For example, many buildings in snowy climates opt for a non-symmetrical sloped roof that is only slightly sloped on one side and prodigiously sloped on the other side. The more sloped side is oriented so that it is the most likely to catch the falling snow, and its slope allows the roof to shed the snow easily. However, so that the falling snow...

Roof Damage From Birds: Advice For Business Owners

Posted by on 11:59 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Roof Damage From Birds: Advice For Business Owners

Australian business owners face several natural hazards that can cause serious damage to a roof. For instance, a large bird infestation is dirty and annoying, and if you don’t do something about the problem, you could also face a significant roof repair bill. Learn more about the problems with your roof birds can cause, and find out what you can do to avoid the issue. The problems birds can cause A single bird may not seem like a serious threat to your business premises, but in larger numbers, these creatures can soon outlive their welcome. Certain bird habits can damage a roof over a surprisingly short period. Bird droppings are not just inconvenient. For a commercial roof, this type of animal waste can cause serious problems. If a large flock of seagulls or pigeons decides to regularly land on your roof, the resulting droppings can get into drainpipes and gutters, leading to problems with dampness and structural integrity. What’s more, the acidity of these bird droppings can also corrode a metal roof. Over time, corrosion can leave you with a leaky roof, which will soon damage valuable stock and other items on your premises. The uric acid in bird waste can also ruin a painted roof. Nesting birds can also cause problems. As well as the issue their droppings can cause, nesting birds will block gutters with the twigs and leaves they use to build a nest. What’s more, when the birds move out, they don’t take their nests and bedding with them. The material the birds leave behind can quickly become a fire hazard, particularly in parts of Australia where there is a recurrent risk of bush fires. Preventing bird damage If you want to avoid damage to your roof, you need to invest in one of several methods that will stop birds taking up residence on your property. There are various ways you can achieve this. Gutter guards (or gutter mesh) can stop birds nesting in your gutters. The mesh forms a physical barrier over the gutter that stops pests getting in, without interfering with the flow of rainwater you need the gutter to deal with. The sloped design of the guard also makes sure that leaves blow off the roof, instead of clogging up the gutter. Other gutter guards (such as coils or brushes) will often deter birds, but other debris may still clog up the system. If you become aware of birds in an attic or roof space, contact a commercial roofing specialist for help. He or she can quickly locate and block up possible entry points with netting or other types of physical barrier. This may take some precision. For example, to keep out house sparrows, you’ll need to block up any entry point more than 2 centimeters wide. In most cases, the mere presence of the roofer will scare the birds away, but you may also need to consider help from a pest control specialist for a serious infestation. Bird spikes are also a good deterrent. These simple devices use a series of vertical spikes that you fix to ledges and flat surfaces in strips. The spikes are perfectly humane because the birds can’t ever land on the surface. It’s easy enough to install the spikes, but a roofing specialist can also normally help you fit these simple deterrents. A...

Renovating An Apartment In A Strata Unit: What You Need To Know

Posted by on 3:54 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Renovating An Apartment In A Strata Unit: What You Need To Know

Many people buy apartments with a view to carrying out multiple renovations. Indeed, some sellers highlight the renovation potential to buyers keen to put their own mark on the property. However, if your new apartment is part of a strata unit, renovation is likely to become more complicated. Find out what a strata title means, and learn more about the steps you may need to take if you want to embark on a renovation project. How a strata scheme works Developers can set up strata schemes for both commercial and residential properties, but the term commonly applies to Australian residential apartment blocks or lots. A strata title is a form of ownership of these properties, and the name relates to the multiple levels (or strata) of apartments that generally exist in an average block. Property owners must register a strata title with the local council. A registered surveyor must draw up a strata plan, which shows each of the lots as well as any areas defined as common property, such as stairwells or storage areas. Each lot has a unit entitlement, and once registered with the council, each apartment owner receives a certificate of title. Strata plans also involve an owners’ corporation, which includes each lot owner in the building. The owners’ corporation becomes a legal entity, and this group oversees all decisions related to the maintenance, upkeep and (crucially) renovation of the building. How strata schemes complicate renovation projects Lot owners in strata schemes often don’t understand which parts of the property they own. As a general principle, lot owners own everything from the interior paint in. While this may cover all the parts of the property you want to renovate, you may run into problems if you want to tackle other areas. You cannot renovate any area of a strata scheme that the plan shows as common property without permission from the owner’s corporation. Each strata plan is different, but areas that fall under this definition probably include: Windows Front doors Balconies Exterior walls It’s also important to understand how far the renovation definition can extend. While many lot owners understand that removing or installing a balcony is a type of renovation, even painting a front door a new colour is likely to need owners’ corporation consent. As such, it’s easy to see why many renovation projects fall foul of the rules. These rules are not just there for the sake of bureaucracy. The owners’ corporation exists to make sure the building retains its original design. What’s more, some changes could potentially breach fire safety regulations, so this level of control generally protects everyone in the building. Strata unit renovation – following the rules It’s always a good idea to discuss proposed renovation work with the strata manager and/or owners’ corporation. This step helps you discuss the proposed approach and can help you understand where your work may involve common areas. While the corporation will need to grant you permission to work on these common areas, this type of early consultation can also help you adapt your plans to avoid more complicated changes. It’s important to understand that you’ll need permission from the corporation for any work that could impede on the structural integrity of a wall, even if the wall is inside your apartment. For example, if...

Window Coatings For Improved Energy Efficiency: What You Need To Know

Posted by on 3:20 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Window Coatings For Improved Energy Efficiency: What You Need To Know

Parts of Australia enjoy some of the sunniest conditions in the world. In areas of Western Australia and the Northern Territories, Australians enjoy more than 9 hours of daily sunshine, but this can take its toll on your air conditioning bills. Keeping your house cool in sunny weather isn’t always easy, but energy-efficient window coatings can certainly help. Learn more about these coatings, and find out how this type of glazing could help you. How window design affects your home Energy-efficient windows can cut heating, cooling and lighting costs, but homeowners must consider several factors when choosing glazing. The type of window you choose is important, but so is the house’s position and the part of Australia you live in. For example, if you live in a part of the country where you need to keep the house warm, you should try to maximise glazing in south-facing walls. In the winter, the sun is lower, so large, south-facing windows will make the best use of daily sunshine. You can also look for various efficiency statistics to help you understand the energy performance of your windows. Things to consider include: U-factor, which describes how much non-solar heat passes through the glass. The lower the U-factor, the more energy efficient the glass is. Air leakage, which shows how much air you lose around the window. A low air leakage rating indicates that the glass is more energy-efficient. Solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), which shows how much solar radiation can pass through the glass. A low SHGC means that the glass transmits less heat and will help you keep your house cool. Visible transmittance (VT) relates to how much visible light can pass through the glass. Window coatings can improve the energy efficiency of your windows. These coatings can affect the U-factor, the SHGC  and the VT of your windows. Types of coating Homeowners can generally choose from three types of coating. A low-emissivity coating can help control heat transfer. You would normally buy glass with the coating, although a few manufacturers now offer DIY films that you can apply at home. Manufacturers use a very thin coating of metal or metallic oxide, which cuts the glass’s U-factor, and you may also experience a lower VT. Reflective coatings block out light. These thin, metallic coatings will dramatically cut VT and SHGC, but you may experience less natural light in the room. As such, you may offset some of the savings in heating and cooling with increased lighting bills. Spectrally-selective coatings filter out 40 to 70 percent of the heat without cutting the level of light permitted through the glass. These coatings reflect certain light wavelengths, so you can keep the house cool without affecting the brightness of your rooms. A specialist supplier can normally apply this type of coating to any type of tinted window. Cost of coating The cost of a window coating varies according to several factors. Aside from the size of the window and the type of coating you choose, the cost of the work will increase if: You have smaller window panes (as you would find on a French door) You need the supplier to remove old film You have odd-shaped windows You need the supplier to remove putty, paint and other contaminants on the glass In most...

Three Ways Your Plumber Can Help Protect Your Home Against Bushfires

Posted by on 6:27 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Bushfires in Western Australian continue to rage with the area of Northcliffe declared a natural disaster zone. While summer is close to being over, buying a home in an area known for bushfires means that you need to always be prepared. One of the best things you can do to protect your home against fire is to call a plumbing service, and here are three reasons why. Gutter Guards It is a well known fact that you should keep your gutters clear of debris as these can act as fuel for a fire if it gets too close to your home. However, a plumber can help you to install gutter guards which will give you even further protection: Gutter guards made of steel mesh will keep the debris from getting into your gutter in the first place. The steel mesh will survive in a fire as it does not burn like the plastic equivalent will. Your plumber will make sure that there is not more than a 2 mm gap between the edge of the gutter guard and the edge of your roof. It is important that the gap is no larger than this as embers can get under the roof and start a fire within your ceiling cavity. While the plumber is installing the gutter guards, they can also install ember guards. These block any small spaces around the roof eaves that could let the embers into the ceiling space. External Sprinklers Once the gutter guards are in place, it is time for your plumber to install external sprinklers. There are three ways that your home can be threatened by a bushfire, and they are: The heat that comes before the fire arrives. The actual flames of the fire. Burning embers getting into your home and starting an internal burn. There are two ways that external sprinklers can protect your home from these three threats: Mounting sprinklers on the roof of the home: These will protect the whole dwelling by pouring water over the roof that then cascades down the external walls of the home. Mounting sprinklers in the ground around the perimeter of the home: The water from these sprinklers will keep the grass and plants around the home wet, and this means there is less fuel for the fire to feed on before it gets to the house. When there is no bushfire threat these sprinklers can double as an irrigation system. Pump And Pipe Preparation If you are off the suburban grid and your water supply comes from on site tanks, then your water is being fed to the house via a pump. If the fire takes out your electricity, do you have a backup plan when your pump no longer works? Your plumber can help you design a secondary water moving system that uses a gas generator to power the backup pump. This backup pump and generator should be housed inside a concrete dwelling as concrete will not burn when a bushfire passes over it. It is important that all pipes connected to this pump are buried underground so that they do not become fuel for a fire. The more prepared you are to protect your home from bush fires, the better your chances of having a building to come home to after a fire...

The Threat Of Panama Disease: What Australian Growers Should Know

Posted by on 4:22 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Australia’s varied climate offers excellent growing conditions for a range of plants and trees, but this environment also harbours a lot of pests and diseases. A significant proportion of Australia’s economy depends on agriculture, so it’s unsurprising that the government is vigilant to the risks that some of these pests and diseases present. Panama disease is a dangerous type of fungus that threatens Australia’s thriving banana plantations. Learn more about the disease, how it affects crops, and how everybody in Australia needs to stay vigilant to the signs of this condition. About bananas Many people believe that bananas grow on trees because of the size of the stems. In fact, the banana is the largest herbaceous flowering plant in the world, with pseudo stems that can reach nearly 8 metres in height. Each of these stems normally produces a bunch of bananas. A fully-grown banana plant in your garden will certainly have the same impact as many species of tree. The banana is one of the oldest known cultivated plants in the world. All cultivated banana plants around the world (including Australia) descend from just two wild species. Wild bananas have pea-sized seeds, but the edible variety grows without seeds due to a process called parthenocarpy. As part of this process, the fruit develops without fertilising the ovule, which means plantation farmers must produce new plants through tissue culture. This process efficiently allows farmers to grow billions of bananas every year, but there is one important drawback. Almost all commercial banana plants are genetically identical clones. As such, commercial banana plants are highly vulnerable to disease. A single outbreak of disease can wipe out an entire plantation, and it isn’t yet possible to replace the current commercial variety with any other type of banana. About Panama disease Panama disease originates from a soil-borne fungus called Fusarium osysporum. Plants are susceptible to four races of the Panama fungus, as follows: Race 1 infects Lady Finger, Sugar and Ducasse banana plants but not Cavendish (the main commercial plant) Race 2 generally only infects cooking bananas (including Blue Java) Race 3 does not infect bananas and will only attack other plants Race 4 infects most banana varieties, including Cavendish, and poses the greatest threat to Australia. Race 4 further divides into two strains. Subtropical Race 4 produces symptoms in Cavendish bananas. In Australia, this strain is under quarantine in parts of Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia. Tropical race 4 has, so far, only appeared in the Darwin area, where the fungus remains under strict quarantine control. In parts of South East Asia, tropical race 4 has had a devastating effect on banana plantations. Signs and symptoms of Panama disease Plants with Panama disease will normally start to yellow and their leaf edges will die. Over time, the leaves can turn brown and dry out, eventually leaving a plain stump, with a skirt of dead leaves. The stem may split, and water-conducting tissue will often start to discolour when the fungus infects plant tissues. An infected plant will rarely produce fruit. It’s easy to spread the fungus via infected material. For example, if you cut off infected stems or leaves, the fungus can then spread to other plants that come into contact with this debris. The disease can also spread naturally via root to root...

Two Tips For Painting A Picture Perfect Nursery

Posted by on 8:23 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your child! Pregnancy is an exciting time for both parents, and it may feel like there a million little details that need to be taken care of before “push” day. Once the first trimester is done, it is time to think about decorating the nursery as this is when you will be at your most energetic. Here are two tips you need to know about painting and paint supplies for your nursery, so that you can keep your newborn calm and happy once they arrive home. Colour Psychology Let’s talk about colour! Generally, most parents only make colour choices for a nursery based on gender. Everyone knows the traditional choice is blue for boys and pink for girls. However, are you are aware that there is psychology that can be used when thinking about nursery paint colour choices? It has been scientifically determined in the past that colours can be used to alter the mood of a person. Based on this theory, here are three colours you should be using in your nursery, and the reasons why. Pink. While you may naturally be considering pink for a girl’s room, are you aware that pink is known to be a soothing colour?  It is also a colour that leads to anger reduction, which is a great choice for a colicky or fussy baby. Yellow. Yellow is sunshine and happiness. People always brighten mentally when they are outside in the sun, and the same emotion can be stimulated by using yellow in a nursery. Green. Green is another soothing colour choice. It is associated with relaxation and healing. This is a colour that invokes a natural high among people as it is linked with nature and being outdoors. One colour you should definitely avoid is red. This colour invokes hostility when there is too much of it, and you don’t want your new bundle of joy being overstimulated by this bright hue. Paint Type While it will be a little while yet before your baby is moving around the nursery and covering every surface with grubby little chubby fingers, choosing the right type of paint now means that you will not have to repaint the room in the next year or two. Once you have chosen the colour for the nursery, you need to determine what type of finish it will be. You have to carefully consider which one is going to give you everything the room needs. These are your main choices: Matte paint. Matte paint is the flat paint choice that has very little shine to it. While it is the hardest one to clean, it is the least glossy. This paint needs to be considered because it will not reflect light rays around the room. This is important when it is bedtime, and you are trying to get your little one to settle. Dark and dull will not overstimulate their senses, and that allows the child to sleep better. Semi-gloss paint. Semi-gloss is one of the most popular choices as it is midway between the two paint finish extremes. It is not as shiny as a full gloss paint, but it is not as dull as the matte paint. You will be able to wipe some scuff marks off it, and it...

Practical Ideas for a Private BackYard Retreat

Posted by on 8:44 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We are all entitled to enjoy the peace and quiet of our backyard in complete privacy. Even though we may love our neighbours, it’s great to be able to step outside and wind down, without feeling the obligation for interaction. We are simply seeking a few moments of precious personal space. Here are some simple suggestions for creating a private retreat in your back yard. A haven where you can block out unwanted scrutiny and where there is no need for communication if you are not in that frame of mind. Alternatively it can function as a centre for entertaining and enjoying company when the party mood arises. Be Aware of Unexpected Invasions We usually think of walls, screens, dividers and plants for doing the trick and blocking views when we wish to make privacy screens. However, setting up that outdoor sanctuary has become a little more complex with recent developments in technology and can catch the unsuspecting householder unawares. It is now necessary to carefully consider the area from an overhead aspect. You can be placed in an embarrassing situation, while peacefully enjoying your own backyard, as an unlucky Melbourne woman recently discovered. A real estate drone accidentally captured her image as she was innocently sunbathing in her yard. The drone was in the process of filming an overhead view for the sale of a neighbouring property. Subsequently her image was displayed on all the advertising billboards. With this incident in mind, you need to allow for a partially covered structure at the very minimum. This will prevent any unexpected surprises lurking in the skies. You can then be as creative as you desire to make your area both stylish and peaceful. There are countless ways to set up imaginative spaces and transform plain patios and pergolas into serene and pleasant areas for quiet relaxation. Plants are Your Friend Apply the landscape gardener’s technique and use of greenery of foliage to soften the harder lines of walls and timber structures and offer a more natural partition. Use a trellis of an attractive climbing vine such as wisteria or star jasmine, which are striking and hardy varieties. Ornamental grape vines and ivy are also a popular choice. Edible grapes and kiwi fruit vines will serve both a functional and decorative purpose. Create a hedge of evergreen shrubs with holly, dwarf box or glossy laurel to form an attractive border against a bare wall. Set up a vertical garden to enhance the space. Not only will it create additional privacy it will provide a living wall of beautiful plants. Kits for establishing vertical gardens are readily available from your local nursery and are very easy to get going. When you think about the space for entertaining and enjoying the company of friends, there are some simple ideas to give patios and pergolas a stylish transformation. Consider these ideas: Choose Smart Patio Settings You will need a dining setting that is large enough to accommodate your family and guests a lounge setting to comfortably relax after the food is done. Glass topped dining settings, or wicker, chrome and steel, together with a matching lounge provide that luxurious touch. Plenty of colourful cushions will add comfort to the stylish appearance. Enhance your night time entertaining with attractive lighting. Choose from a range...
