IP68 cable gland c/w lock nut - 20mm white
The importance of having a completely dry connection on the electrical cables etc
can not be understated. Water and electricity do not mix well and the weakest point
for any exterior electrical installation is always where a joint is made. There is
a selection of waterproof enclosures available on our web site and we would highly
recommend the use of them when installing the exterior lights. Please ensure that
your electrician reads all the instructions and installs them to the letter using
the appropriate waterproof kits. We would highly recommend keeping all jointing
and transformers above ground where possible, if you do need to put the joint in
ground then please use the potting kits with a resin gel fill pack.
Adequate drainage must also be made under each luminaire especially if you are in
a clay based soil area.
Please ensure that the electrical company is NIC EIC approved and have carried out
exterior lighting installations before as it is not as straight forward as an internal
electrical installation. Failure to adequately install a 100% water tight installation
will create problems for the future and could result in having to dig up a driveway
etc to fix a poor cable joint.
