Brick light, with front grill, 9w Mains compact fluorescent, 304 stainless steel, IP54


A recessed modern brick shaped contemporary styled mains 240v 9w compact fluorescent low level wall light. This outdoor recessed low level wall light can be used around low level perimeter walls, staircases or as a step light. Easy to install  mains 240v supply. The light fitting is designed to throw the light down and forward and with the main lamp source set high in the fitting there is no glare created. Compact fluorescent lamps  have a long life span and very ECO friendly due to their low running and maintenance cost's. This wall light is available in  two LED lamp options , warm white and cool white and also a mains compact fluorescent option. Non dimmable. We recommend placing them every third stair tread and about 300mm above the tread. There is a mounting pot included with the light fitting that can be cut in to the wall.  

Installation

It is important that all exterior installations are carried out by a NIC EIC approved electrical contractor and that all joint are made 100% watertight. Where possible we recommend using a 12 v system and try to keep all transformers etc above ground, this will reduce the risk of water ingress in to the wiring system. All the luminaries are tested fit for purpose and the installation instructions should be adhered to. Waterproof junction boxes and gels are available on this web site.

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 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‚Äôs 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.

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 6,000 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 receptors in 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 6,000 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 )
