The 'Decimax 120' is a circular recessed light with a large 120mm diameter. Made from rust resistant stainless steel, the contemporary Decimax is very versatile and can be mounted into a number of materials and used in a variety of ways, including as a step light, edging a driveway or patio area, or as a wall light. A hard protective sleeving adds to the durability of the fitting, protecting the lower section of stainless steel which will be fixed into brick, decking or the ground. Approximately 3m of cable is included for ease of installation.

Comes with a choice of Toughened glass and clear lens or Toughened lens with frosted lens. It also can come with 100mm diameter bezel or 120mm diameter bezel.


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 6,000 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 skin tones and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour  would be used in offices or a fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. The majority of flower beds and wood barked shingle areas will benefit from a warm white kelvin colour. The use of cool white is generally to illuminate areas with white walls and grey bluish foliage. 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 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 junction boxes and heat shrink cable joint kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections 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.



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. if you want to illuminate tall trees it can be done in a sympathetic way by placing a ground buried light directly under the trees to illuminate the canopy.
