Dasar, Asymmetric ( METAL HALIDE ), 70W, ground recessed, square, 316 stainless steel, IP67, 2 ton load

A maximum 2 ton load can be put on the fitting and make it ideal as a drive over luminaire. Made from marine grade 316 Stainless steel.

Asymmetric medium beam distribution which means that most of the light does not get thrown backwards but is projected forward and up.  In this case 15 degree of light goes back and 75% of the light is thrown forward.

Symmetric is a standard type of light fitting and  means the lamp is set to the centre of the light fitting ( see example below ) and throws the light  directly at the object for illumination but lots of the light also goes wasted in to the air creating light pollution.. Ideal at a base of a tree to illuminate the canopy or to illuminate a fa├žade of a building.

Lamp details

Metal halide bulb 70W CDM-TD, NDL, Rx7s

Metal halide lights are very punchy and last a long time. They do not like to be switched on and of constantly as they need to cool down between re strike. warm white 2,700 kelvins and cool white 4,000 kelvins are available.

Example of kelvin colours


Installation tips

All recessed luminaries must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joint must be 100% watertight and there 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 transformer be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cablestogether.

If you feel that adequate drainage may be an issue then we would advise using a surface mounted spike light and keep all joints above ground. The Apollo range of light fittings has a choice of beam angles and glare shield options and can be found at the bottom of the surface ground lights section.

Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before.
