Elipta, garden compact wall spot, copper, mains 240v, GU10 34w max, IP66

E4222 Elipta Compact garden wall spotlight is an adjustable 240v wall or post mount spotlight for down lighting and accent lighting focal points. 240v models utilise GU10 halogen lamps which means there is no need for a bulky transformer base and they fit mains wiring points on house walls and pillars. It has a flush lens which sheds water and dirt and is easy to clean. 20 watt lamps are ideal for threshold lighting over a door; 35 watts is an optimum choice for many patio lighting applications. 3W led module provides a long life, low energy option for lighting smaller subjects, while 7w - 11w compact fluorescent lamps provide a broad wash of light for patios, including an 11w dimmable model. Natural copper weathers to a mottled brown finish which blends well with red brick and timber. If you live near a coastline we would recommend using a 316 grade stainless steel product.

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.



The down light body is made from solid metal tube and is mounted on a 75mm diameter enclosed mounting base with back plate, grommeted rear cable entry and connection terminals. Unscrewing the front bezel makes it easy to extract and change the lamp without tools.
