The 'Pergolux' is a beautiful 12v hanging light with a protective clear 60mm tempered glass lens. This fixed lens at the end of the cylindrical body makes the hanging garden spotlight more weatherproof (IP54) than many others available, and is ideal for anywhere in the garden where light is required from above, such as seating areas, tree branches or BBQ areas. Once illuminated, the hanging spotlight provides a beam that disperses outwards and downwards.
The Pergolux also looks great as an ornamental landscape light during daylight hours. Garden lights made from natural copper will weather organically over time to create a mottled effect that blends in with outdoor materials such as brick, plants and tree bark. After longer periods of time a 'verdigris' effect may be present.
Lumena recommend an MR16 LED bulb to reduce running and maintenance costs due to the bulb's long lifespan and low wattage. The LED MR16 can be fitted / replaced easily by unscrewing the one screw at the top of the cylindrical body. For instant coloured lighting effects why not fit a removable coloured dichroic lens inside the light ? Available in a variety of colours from our accessories sub category louvres & filters.
The installation of this landscape light is made easier with a handy 5m of waterproof 2 core cable, meaning less cable joins and more choice on the position of the light fitting. The fixed hanging ring at the top of the light can be used with a length of chain if desired.
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens work in conjunction with kelvins and should not be taken in isolation of each other. For example if you had a very warm white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumens and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens the cooler lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast. So if you shine a white 6,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 Kelvin lamp onto a white wall the warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused on. So when choosing a lamp always take into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins (colour ), Lumens ( brightness) and contrast (colour of area).
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 at fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and feel more alert. There’s nothing
that can sour your opinion of a compact fluorescent or LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant
to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa. 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.
