Brick LED,  230v, 304 stainless steel, warm white, 3,000 kelvin,1w, 30 lumen's, IP44


A very traditional style brick light fitting designed to fit in to your existing brickwork for either low level drive way lights, step lights or just perimeter garden lighting for a walkway. These light fittings are cool running and therefore safe to touch. There is a fitting pot included with this light fitting which helps on installation. The flat glass front is also easy to keep clean and the stainless steel finish helps keep it looking fresh.

There are advantages and disadvantages to having a complete built in mains 230v LED system and the main advantage is a very simple installation with no external transformer or lamps to worry about. The main disadvantage is if the fitting should fail you will need to throw the whole unit away, purchase a new one and if it is no longer made you will need to replace all the units.

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 an 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 joints 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 or gel mix.

Lamp colour ( Kelvin's )


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.

Light output ( Lumen's )

The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumen's 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 lumen's and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's the cooler lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this is due to the receptorsin 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 5,000 kelvin light on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp on to 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 in to account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area ) .
