Aura spike light, IP44, 1w mains LED, 100 lumen's, cool white 6,500 kelvin


The Aura LED range has a contemporary modern design along with a high quality 201 brushed stainless steel finish.

The LED mains lamp is built in to this fitting and the small polycarbonate ring produces an effective halo edge to the light fitting.
Knuckle style joint on the main head for tilt and rotation.

The addition of the outer circular clear ring is to work as a marker light along a pathway while the main beam is projected across it or at an ornament.

The high power 1w very cool white lamp is about the same output as a standard 15w G9 mains capsule lamp.

The only disadvantage of this type of fitting is when the internal lamps fail you will need to purchase a complete new light fitting.


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 and transformer 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. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay based soil areas. If possible use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs. 

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. You must also be mindful of your neighbours and the effect your lighting can have on them and shining a 500w tungsten halogen flood light in to their windows at night will cause them distress. Try to keep the light in a downward position and local to the items you want to illuminate and even if you want to illuminate tall trees it can be done in a sympathetic way by placing a ground buried or surface spike flood light directly under the trees to illuminate the canopy. Some light fittings also have a anti glare shield fitted to reduce light pollution.

IP Rating

All the luminaries on our web site have been specifically designed fit for purpose and assigned a relevant IP rating whichdenotes 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.
