Energy efficient lamp option
LED lamps offer energy savings over the traditional
halogen GU10 lamps and are also cool to touch and safe around children. Warm white and cool white are available and the cool
white works well when illuminating shrubs and trees where as the warm white works better on brickwork and wood.
Example of LED lamp savings
Light output ( Lumens )
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.
All installations should be
done by a NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes
are available from our web site.
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. All joint must be made 100%
water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin
mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. If possible
use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.
