In an effort to keep our community and our staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic we have implemented the following additional procedures as of November 12th, 2020:
This is in addition to our previous policies we have been operating under for months:
Know that we take this very seriously. All employees are aware of the provincial health guidelines and have signed contracts pledging to adhere to them.
Maybe you have seen our work at the Zoo Lights Festival or at The Forks/ River Trail. Perhaps you have even seen us working in your neighborhood or even on your own house? If so, you have most likely asked yourself, “How does Lights Unlimited uphold such an outstanding quality of work season after season, light after painstaking light?” Well, not only do we have some of the most qualified and experienced employees in the business, but some of our credit is due to the equipment we use.
After years of trial, error, and experimentation, we have found the perfect tools uniquely designed for Christmas light installation.
Here are some of our secrets…
Specially designed to set lights on the very top of any variety of tree, Tree Polls help us reach roughly 25 feet into the air! These polls work like Russian nesting dolls, where each extension of the poll can slide out of each other to offer easy collapsibility, storage, and as much reach as possible. The end of the poll features a Y-shaped tip to help guide the light strand from branch-to-branch.
Since no job is out of the question, where there is a tree that is, in fact, too large for the Tree Polls, we bring out the heavy guns.
Possibly getting mistaken for Manitoba Hydro workers, our Bucket Truck crew is a highly specialized and certified team that soars through the air delicately placing lights on the tallest of trees and most challenging to reach peaks of houses. With safety being paramount, the Bucket Truck crew dawns the highest quality hard-hats and safety harnesses to bring the brightest of lights to your world.
With everything from Gutter clips to soffit clips and permanent installation clips, this secret weapon is what keeps your Christmas lights immovable and steadfast while on your roofline. Being a small Winnipeg based business ourselves, we order our clips by the tens-of-thousands from a local Winnipeg-owned company. Through the most torrential of storms, the specialized clips we use will help keep your lights pointing plum to the ground.
At Lights Unlimited, we are relentless in our pursuit to find new techniques and tools to produce the highest quality of work imaginable.
With cutting edge technology at our tool belt and the most skilled laborers in the business, Lights Unlimited will be lighting up your world for a long time to come.
One of the most massive detriments to a poorly installed Christmas lights display is the misuse of string lights.
As one of the most diverse lights on the market, string lights are used for everything from trees, lamp posts, bushes, custom-built lanterns, and sometimes roof lines.
While their different applications may make them seem like a fool-proof choice for lighting displays, choosing the proper type of string lights will make or break the display.
The most common string lights on the market are C6, G12 and 5mm.
Perhaps the most common light string style, these bulbs are a smaller take on the classic C9 Christmas lights. The cone-shaped C6 lights lend themselves to any use. Commonly used on foliage, these lights will elevate to unique contours of any tree. Whether it be deciduous, evergreen or a small bush, C6 lights are the go-to for outdoor lighting needs.
A similar to C6 lights, G12 lights are commonly used for outdoor trees and other foliage. However, these lights are also popular for outdoor event displays due to their globe-shaped bulb that casts a soft and delicate hue. A despite the difference in the bulb shape, often G12 and C6 lights are used interchangeably.
An incredibly popular option for string lights, 5mm lights are a staple to any beautiful lighting display. Commonly used as the go-to style for trunk wraps, these lights are attention grabbers as they wonderfully outline any tree’s complex and unique aspects. One fantastic way to spice up your display would be to utilize the twinkling option available with 5mm lights.
All of these styles come in a variety of colours of bulb and wire. Whatever choice you make, be assured that we have you covered. There is no limit when you work with Lights Unlimited!
