12v, ground mount, spike light, Copper, IP54


The Director Uplight is a versatile 12v spike light supplied with an extra durable, 4 fin, polycarbonate ground spike for additional anchorage and stability when fixing into the ground. The traditional copper finish with brass detail adds a classic and elegant look to any garden, and is practical with an adjustable head, with the brass serated clamp joint enables the spot light to be angles at various heights over 180° (vertically). The convex lens and integrated glare shield of the 12 volt Director Uplight emits the light in a narrow spot light beam rather than a wider flood beam, making it ideal for uplighting plants and trees, as well as highlighting specific statues or ornaments in the garden. This copper spotlight requires an MR16 lamp, which is easily installed and replaced with no external screws, making maintenance simpler whilst adding to the traditional design quality. Lumena recommend the use of a low voltage LED MR16 which uses a lot less energy than halogen equivalents, and has a much longer life span (select below - optional).

88% Typical energy savings using LED lamps

Low voltage is the safer option in the garden due to the ground being dug etc. You will need to use a transformer which matches the lamp voltage, for example if you had 6 fittings each with a MR16 35w lamp that would be 6 x 35w = 210 watts so you would need a transformer that was about 250 va as you need some spare capacity on it to function correctly. Standard MR16 low voltage lamps can use either an electronic or standard toroidal type transformer but if you decide to use LED lamps then they work best on the toroidal type transformer.

We recommend you use the heat shrink kits for cable jointing and also waterproof enclosures with the hard setting resin compound to minimise the risk of water ingress.

Please try and make all terminations above ground where there is less chance of water ingress. All installations should be done by a NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes are available from our web site.
