Beam, outdoor lamp, 35w Metal halide, up and down light, IP44


A very powerful energy efficient wall mounted designer led contemporary style up down light. The up light uses a projector lens to create a very punchy narrow beam of light to stream up the wall, the lower down light has a wide beam distribution to illuminate the pathway below.  This creates a unique and stunning light effect. Using metal halide technology this luminaire is very punchy and the lamp has a very high output along with a long life expectancy. Mains power supply and a single 35w metal halide lamp which produces 3,300 Lumens, available in warm white 3,000 Kelvins. Pyramid style enclosure with smooth clean lines for easy cleaning and anti glare.



Installation

Care must be taken when installing exterior lighting products especially those that are ground mounted. All the products are sold and tested fit for purpose and the IP rating is set according to the design and purpose of the luminaire, more details on IP ratings can be found under design ideas section. The weakest point is generally the installation of the product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground buried lights or poor cable joints have been made which are not 100% water tight and will allow for water penetration. There are a number of waterproof enclosures available on this site along with heat shrink cable joint kits and resin gel packs to fill the junction boxes to make a watertight enclosure. Where possible try and keep all joints and transformers above ground, however if this is not possible there are potted burial kits available.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is  2700 kelvin  is classed as warm white and sympathetic to skin tones and warm brickwork. A kelvin of 6500k is in the  blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum.

                                       

Light output ( Lumen's )

All lamps have a lumen number and the higher the lumen number the brighter the lamp, however colour of the lamp (kelvins ) also comes in to play here as a whiter lamp at 6,000 kelvins and above would always appear brighter to the naked eye than a warmer colour lamp at the 2,700 kelvins light spectrum even if it has the same lumen output.  A halogen 150w R7 lamp that is used in a standard garden security flood light would produce around 2,300 lumens and a 26w compact fluorescent would produce around 1,800 lumens.  Placing lights closer to the item to be illuminated is a good way of using a lower lumen lamp rather than trying to flood light a big area.

Environmental impact

Care should be taken for local wildlife, insects, and general light pollution,  this means the warmer colour spectrum ( 2, 700 kelvin )  does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue spectrum ( 4,000 kelvin and above ). Cool white colours can disrupt insects and wildlife's  normal night time activity. This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fitting works better as well as reducing overall light pollution in the area.
