DuoMarka - 180 degree In Ground/Step Light-316 Stainless Steel -240v


The DuoMarka is a contemporary and elegant recessed light suitable for illuminating steps and outlining other areas in the garden, mounted in the ground, walls or decking. It is made from high quality, marine grade 316 stainless steel, which has an even greater resistance to pitting corrosion / rusting than other lower grade steel. It has two conical sections on one side of the top of the fitting, which allows a 180ยบ diffusion of light through a clear lens without glare. The slightly domed surface makes this the ideal shape for mounting on decking, a driveway, a patio or any other areas where a walk over facility is required. The front bezel is threaded, and attaches to a steel body by screwing together with no external screws or fixings which results in a neater overall finish. This also means no tools are required to change the GU10 lamp (LED recommended).

The robust black plastic sleeve will be built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a drilled out hole. The main part of the light then pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in place by a large O ring (see detailed image), leaving only the streamline front dome on show.

The DuoMarka is supplied with approx. 3m of 3 core H05RNF cable.This longer cable length gives the option of a 6m space between two lights should it be needed, and could cut down the number of cable joins in outdoor lighting installation. Light can also be spread to a wider area with longer cable length.

NOT TO BE DRIVEN OVER.

Not for use in areas prone to waterlogging or flooding




                            

                                   The cut out of the installation pot is 87mm diameter x 114mm depth


                                      The diameter of the body of the fitting is 60mm x 67mm length

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. 


                                                              
        



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 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 5,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp onto 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 into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast (colour).
