Elipta, garden compact wall spot, black, mains 240v, GU10 35w max, IP66


The E4232 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 LED 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. They are ideal for threshold lighting over a door or for many patio lighting applications. LED lamps provides a long life, low energy option for lighting a variety of subjects. Black powder-coated aluminium is a traditional recessive colour choice for garden settings.


Installation

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

The weakest point is generally the installation of the product where 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 IP68 inline connectors and resin gel packs to fill the junction boxes to make a watertight enclosure. 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 and will also provide a water tight coating. make sure any cabling used is rubber and not PVC as PVC can lead to capillary action.


Lamp colour ( Kelvin's )

 

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.
