Decimina - 12V 66mm Garden Deck Light - Brass IP67


The Decimina 12 volt recessed decking light houses a replaceable 12v MR11 lamp; which is a smaller version of the standard MR16 Decimax. A strong 5mm thick brass rim with a rustic bronze finish surrounds the 30mm diameter glass lens , which is secured in place with 3 screws. This finish really blends in with natural surroundings and adds a touch of class to garden areas with a more traditional theme. Once the 60mm diameter mounting hole has been drilled, the brass deck light simply slots into place beneath the 66mm diameter brass bezel. Not only can it be used on decking, this versatile recessed light can also be used as a step light, recessed path light or wall light as it can be sunk into virtually any surface. Approximately 5m of rubber cable is included with this deck light preventing unnecessary cable joins throughout the garden.

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. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.


                                                         
                       



Energy efficient lamps


Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible (Lumen's) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. Kelvins are the colour temperature of the lamp. 2700k is the warm end of the colour spectrum and 5000k is the cooler whiter end of the colour spectrum. The latest LED technology  lamps are amongst the most efficient you can buy today. An example would be to change a mains halogen GU10 35w lamp to a ECO friendly GU10 5w LED lamp.  Reduced energy bills with no loss of light output helps the environment and reduce your energy bills.

Installation


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 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 transformer be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cables together. Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before. Also ensure that all rubber gaskets are clean and dry before screwing down the front glass and bezel for a water tight seal.
