Warranty Information

Sterling Lighting fixtures come with an industry-leading limited warranty for all manufacturing defects. Sterling Lighting warrants its products against defects in material and workmanship when products are installed, operated and maintained according to applicable codes and normal use according to label or supplied instructions. Without charge, Sterling Lighting will either repair or replace the broken component or fixture. Sterling Lighting reserves the right to decide between repair or replacement of any properly installed Sterling Lighting product which fails under normal operating conditions and has not undergone abuse beyond normal wear and tear.


All dedicated fixtures, including our SL01, SL04, SL06, SL07, SL07B, SL07P, SL11, SL12, SL21, SL23, SL24, SL31, and SL33, have a lifetime warranty on their exterior housing. Dedicated fixtures are fixtures with serviceable LEDs and drivers. 

All integrated fixtures, including our SL02, SL05, SL09, SL13, SL17, and SL36 have a 10-year warranty on their exterior housing. Integrated fixtures are fixtures with non-serviceable LEDs and drivers. 

Sterling Lighting uses the highest quality marine-grade, virgin brass.
