Please ensure that all exterior installations are carried out by a NIE EIC certified electrical contractor and that all cable joints are 100% water tight.
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.
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 a fast
food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and 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.
