Dolix Out, outdoor round, GU10, silver grey, frosted front glass, IP44


The Dolix Out range is available in low voltage MR16 or mains voltage GU10 and a number of colour options.

Can be used in soffits, porches, exterior ceiling voids. When lighting is fixed into the soffit boards great lighting effects can be created that wash the walls with light. Narrow beam lamps and coloured lamps can also be used to make more of a decorative effect if desired. Some soffit recessed lighting can be relamped from above and below to make maintenance easier. Wiring regulations would suggest that an ingress protection of IP23 would be sufficient in this location but using a fitting with a higher IP figure can only ensure extra protection in exposed locations.

Where depth is available they can also be used in an entrance porch linked to a motion detection PIR so they come on only when required.  

Lamp colour ( Kelvin's )

 

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. 

 
                                                              



Example of Energy saving LED lamps

The use of energy efficient LED  lamps are long lasting and therefore ideal for areas where access is a problem and regular lamp changes would not be desirable.

                       
 

Installation 

Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have a IP rating which is explained further in our design ideas section but in simple terms the IP rating is appropriate to each light fitting and its intended application and is therefore fit for purpose. Water ingress is the enemy for outdoor lighting and the products supplied are only as good as the installation as the weakest point is always cable joints. 

IP Rating

All the luminaires on our web site have been specifically designed fit for purpose and assigned a relevant IP rating which denotes the amount of protection that is required from water and dust. More information on IP ratings can be found in the design ideas section on this web site.
