DECIMAX 240V RECESSED LIGHT NATURAL COPPER
The ‘Decimax’ is a circular 240v Natural Copper deck light / recessed light with a 100mm front bezel. The face plate is durable
solid Natural Copper that will darken and blend naturally. Copper blends well with outdoor surroundings, eventually forming
a Verdigris finish. A hard protective sleeving adds durability to the fitting, protecting the lower section for mounting
into brick (driveway or wall), decking or the ground. There is also approx. 5m of cable included for ease of installation.
For ease of installation, a 2 pin adaptor plugs directly into a plug and play Transformer, or suitable connectors, meaning
no wiring. The adaptor can be simply cut off to create a normal wire connection via a junction box.
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. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the
appearance the trees are still in leaf.
All recessed luminaries must have adequate drainage approx 20cm beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds.
cable joints must be 100% watertight and there are a number or waterproof transformer boxes and heat shrink cable joint
kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections and transformer 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 any
dirt or grid that gets under the rubber seal can cause capillary action (moisture ingress).
