Elipta, compact garden wall up / down light, copper, mains 240v, GU10, max 35w



The E4422 Elipta Compact up/down light is a 240v wall or post mount model for fixed up/down lighting and grazing applications to create stylish wall illumination effects. 240v models utilise GU10 LED lamps which means there is no need for a bulky transformer base and they fit mains wiring points on house walls and pillars. 5w LED lamps in a warm white colour temperature may be needed to create a powerful effect on darker stone and brick walls, whereas a 5w cool white colour temperature are usually ideal for up/down lighting on lighter, rendered or stone walls. It has flush lenses which shed water and dirt and are easy to clean. Natural copper weathers to a mottled brown finish which blends well with red brick and timber.

a stunning quality made copper wall mounted up down light to suit any garden or property.Easy rear entry fixings and a screw front bezel for easy lamp replacement.

All outdoor lighting should be installed by a certified PART P,  NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and water tight installation.

Installation

The back plate screws to the wal and the body mounts onto the back plate with a discrete allen key grub screws at the side of the body for screwless frontal appearance. The body can be rotated on back plate before fully tightening grub screws to ensure the fitting is installed level, or at any other angle required. Grommeted rear cable entry. Silicon seal back plate fixings.

All exterior lighting products on our web site have an 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 or the use of the wrong mains cabling.  Only user Rubber SWA and not PVC.  All joints must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors and waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix.


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 of area ) .n
