Elipta, compact garden wall down light, solid copper, 12v, MR16, IP66



E4321 Elipta Compact down light is a 12v wall or post-mount model for fixed down lighting and grazing. 12v models operate from a remote transformer. These garden down lights take a range of 20watt, 35 watt or 50 watt halogen lamps to achieve a variety of garden lighting effects. 20 watt lamps are usually ideal for down lighting from a pergola or grazing down a gate pillar; 35 watts and 50 watt wide beam lamps are often needed for down lighting onto a patio from positions higher up on the house wall. A 12v 3w or 5w led module is a low-energy option, while a colour changing led module allows you to project a rainbow sequence of colour onto rendered walls and other light coloured surfaces.

A wide selection of beam angles are available for the lamps to create the effect you require and can be used with the very latest LED lamps to help reduce maintenance cost's and energy bills.

Installation

Please ensure that you use a PART P, NIC EIC electrical contractor to install your exterior lighting.

Care must be taken when installing exterior lighting products especially those that are ground mounted. All the products are sold and tested fit for purpose and the IP rating is set according to the design and purpose of the luminaire, more details on IP ratings can be found under design ideas section. The weakest point is generally the installation of the product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground buried lights or poor cable joints have been made which are not 100% water tight and will allow for water penetration. There are a number of waterproof enclosures available on this site along with heat shrink cable joint kits and resin gel packs to fill the junction boxes to make a watertight enclosure. Where possible try and keep all joints and transformers above ground, however if this is not possible there are potted burial kits available.Copper grease should also be used on screws and nuts to stop them binding and ease removal at a later date when a lamp change is required.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is  2,700 kelvin  is classed as warm white and sympathetic to skin tones and warm colours like red brickwork or yellows etc. A lamp with a kelvin rating of kelvin of 6,500k is in the  blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and cooler colour brick work and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum. Plants and shrubs work better with a warm spectrum from 2,700k up to 4,000k max.

Light output ( Lumen's )

All lamps have a lumen number and the higher the lumen number the brighter the lamp, however colour of the lamp (kelvins ) also comes in to play here as a whiter lamp at 6,000 kelvins and above would always appear brighter to the naked eye than a warmer colour lamp at the 2,700 kelvins light spectrum even if it has the same lumen output.  A halogen 150w R7 lamp that is used in a standard garden security flood light would produce around 2,300 lumen's and a 26w compact fluorescent would produce around 1,800 lumen's.  Placing lights closer to the item to be illuminated is a good way of using a lower lumen lamp rather than trying to flood light a big area. LED lamps are now used extensively in the garden and for indoor applications and the only way you can compare light output is by the amount of lumen's each lamp produces rather than the old way of going by the wattage of a lamp. For example you can get a 3w LED lamp with 400 lumen's and a 5w LED lamp of inferior quality may only produce 300 lumen's.

Environmental impact

Care should be taken for local wildlife, insects, and general light pollution,  this means the warmer colour spectrum does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue spectrum of light which can disrupt their  normal night time activity, This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fitting works better as well as reducing overall light pollution in the area.
