Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and
efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible (Lumen's) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. Kelvins are the colour temperature of the lamp. 2700k is the warm end of the colour spectrum and 5000k is the cooler whiter
end of the colour spectrum. An example would
be to change a mains halogen GU10 35w lamp to a ECO friendly GU10 5w LED lamp.
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 a 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 mix or magic gel. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay based soil areas.
