Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees.  When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.

             

                                                           




Installation


All ground recessed luminaires must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds.
 All cable joints must be 100% watertight and there are a number or waterproof transformer boxes and heat shrink cable joint kits on our web site to choose from.
We would advise that all connections and transformers be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden
 electrical installation is joining cables together. Magic Gel should be used in the termination boxes to reduce the risk of water ingress.
Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before and conforms to Part P certification.

Environmental impact

Care should be taken for the environment and local wildlife to maintain the ecological balance. Insects, bats, wildlife can all be effected by  light pollution.
The warmer colour spectrum of  ( 2,700 Kelvins ) does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue colour spectrum of light
 around 6,000 kelvins which can disrupt their normal night time activity. This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fittings
works better as well as reducing the overall light pollution in the area.
