Easylite AR111, low voltage, ground or wall mounted, spot light 



The easylite range is at the premium quality end of the market and made in Germany. It has a robust design and high quality powder coated finish. The luminaire is adjustable for both rotation and tilt and is suitable for many applications as it can be either wall mounted or ground mounted. The low voltage electronic transformer is built in to the fitting which makes the installation simpler. 

It can be used as a wall mounted spot light to highlight a specific area of interest, or it can be a floor mounted light flood light to up light trees or a building facade.

The AR111 low voltage lamps available for this luminaire come in a wide range of wattages and beam angles, so for example you could use a 50w 8 degree AR111 low voltage spot beam to highlight an object a long distance away or you could put a 60 degree lamp in to flood light an area.

There also AR111 low voltage LED lamps available for this luminaire which have long life and low running cost's.

Installation 

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 and transformer joints. All joint 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. 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. If possible use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.

Energy efficient lamps


Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumens, Kelvins and efficiency. There are other factors but not so relevant for exterior lighting products.  Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light out put possible ( Lumens ) from the minimun amounts of watts consumed. The latest LED technology and compact fluorescent lamps are amongst the most efficeint you can buy today. An example would be to change a mains halogen GU10 35w lamp to a ECO friendly GU10 5w LED lamp. The same be done by changing the older GLS light bulb for a compact fluorescent lamp. Reduced energy bills with no loss of light output helps the environment and reduce your energy bills. 

Environmental impact

Care should be taken for the environment and local wildlife to maintain the ecological balance. Insects, bats, wildlife can all be effected by  light pollution. The warmer colour spectrum of  ( 2,700 Kelvins ) does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue colour spectrum of light around 6,000 kelvins which can disrupt their normal night time activity. This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fittings works better as well as reducing the overall light pollution in the area. You must also be mindful of your neighbors and the effect your lighting can have on them and shining a 500w tungsten halogen flood light in to their windows at night will cause them distress. Try to keep the light in a downward position and local to the items you want to illuminate and even if you want to illuminate tall trees it can be done in a sympathetic way by placing a ground buried or surface spike flood light directly under the trees to illuminate the canopy. Some light fittings also have a anti glare shield fitted to reduce light pollution.


IP Rating

All the luminaires on our web site have been specifically designed fit for purpose and assigned a relevant IP rating which denotes the amount of protection that is required from water and dust. More information on IP ratings can be found in the design ideas section on this web site.
