Eye down, LED, 6w , warm white, 3,000 kelvin, 15 degree Narrow beam, IP44, 400 lumen's
( Requires a transformer )
Wired in series
The Eye down is an Ideal
fitting to fit into soffits and eaves of buildings to wash light down
the front of a property. Its Also good above garage doors.
Because of varying roof designs not all properties have soffit boards. Soffit refers
to the material forming a ceiling from the top of an exterior house wall to the outer
edge of the roof or fascia board, i.e., bridging the gap between the external brick,
block or cladding and the roof-line. Soffit boards or planks are often fixed to the
underside of the eaves.
When lighting is fixed into the soffit boards great lighting effects can be created
that wash the walls with light. Narrow beam lamps and coloured lamps can also be
used to make more of a decorative effect if desired.
Some soffit recessed lighting can be re-lamped from above and below to make maintenance
easier. Wiring regulations would suggest that an ingress protection of IP23 would
be sufficient in this location but using a fitting with a higher IP figure can only
ensure extra protection in exposed locations.
Lumen output is 400 which equates to a 5w LED bulb or 50w Halogen bulb.
depth is available they can also be used in an entrance porch linked to
a motion detection PIR so they come on only when required.
use of energy efficient LED lamps are long
lasting and therefore ideal for areas where access is a problem and
regular lamp changes would not be desirable.
fitting in a ceiling / soffit with a max. material thickness of 30 mm.
The transformer must be a constant current LED 350ma unit wired in series. All exterior
lighting products must be installed by a NIC EIC electrical contractor.
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is 2,700 kelvin
is classed as warm white and sympathetic to skin tones and warm brickwork. A kelvin
of 6500k is in the blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background
and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum.
