Elipta, garden compact wall spot, copper, mains 240v, GU10 34w max, IP65


Elipta Compact outdoor wall spotlights are adjustable wall or post mount spotlights for downlighting and accent lighting focal points available 12v or 240v in 316 stainless steel, natural copper and black, white or brown powder-coated aluminium. E4222S is a 240v model using 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. 3 watt lamps are ideal for threshold lighting over a door; 5 watts is an optimum choice for many patio lighting applications. 3w or 5w led lamps provides a long life, low energy option for lighting smaller subjects, while 7w lamps provide a broad wash of light for patios. 
Natural copper which weathers to a mottled brown finish which blends well with red brick and timber.

The image at the bottom of the page helps to illustrate how natural copper products weather and turn to a mottled brown colour when exposed to an outdoor environment.

The tubular metal spotlight body is mounted on an adjustable knuckle joint and 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 .

Screw back plate onto wall, post or Besa box. Seal wall fixing holes with silicon sealant. Mount spotlight base onto to back plate with grub screw fixings allowing rotation of the body to achieve full “pan and tilt” adjustment.


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 ( Lumens )

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 lumens and a 26w compact fluorescent would produce around 1,800 lumens.  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 lumens and a 5w LED lamp of inferior quality may only produce 300 lumens.
