The Caverna is an in-wall or step light with a rounded cavern like shield. This acts to divert all the light in one direction. It is ideal for steps and dimly lit access areas. As it is powered by a GU10 bulb, it will be brighter than the similar outdoor step light “Eyelite” which is powered by a G4 bulb which are generally lower in wattage than MR16 or GU10 types.  73mm mounting pot cut out.

The robust black plastic sleeve is supplied to protect the real copper step light and assist with installation. The sleeving should be recessed into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a drilled out hole. The main part of the step light then pushes into the tube sleeve, where it is held firmly in place by internal gripping ‘teeth'.

The Caverna is supplied with approx. 3m of  H05RNF cable which gives the option of up to a 6m space between two lights should it be required with only one cable joint. Lights can also be installed across a wider area with longer cable length and could cut down the number of cable joints dramatically.

Natural Copper


Crafted from elegant natural copper, this light has a traditional look and feel and will weather over time to create a charming natural effect that blends in with various outdoor surroundings. This organic effect on the natural copper happens because it reacts with atmospheric oxygen, which means a 'Verdigris' effect may be present after longer periods of time. This oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of the natural copper, creating a traditional, decorative appearance. If a pristine, shiny copper finish is preferred, a lacquer can easily be applied to prevent the natural copper process.

Installation


All recessed luminaries must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joints must be 100% watertight and there are a number or waterproof juntion boxes and heat shrink cable joint kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cables together. Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before. Also ensure that all rubber gaskets are clean and dry before screwing down the front glass and bezel for a water tight seal otherwise moisture can be absorbed into the front lens of the fitting where the bulb is stored and lead to premature failure of the LED bulbs.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

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.
