This stylish, root mounted path light is available in heights of 0.6m and 0.65m - 1.6m (dependant on how much of the pole is built in ground). Surface mount versions are also available up to a height of 1m as well as a photocell option for all heights.
The slimline 48mm diameter body and compact base enable this down light to be mounted in the smallest of outdoor areas without being intrusive which is a versatile and convenient aspect of the design. The flat, spaceship shaped head spreads light outwards and downwards onto pathways or areas of planting positioned beneath and around the head, with small beams of light shooting from the top of the head to create a unique, ornamentali, starship effect.
True to form, the Enterprise is available in a matt black finish as well as our ever popular ‘garden green’ finish. Garden green is preferred when outdoor lights are required to blend in more with natural surroundings of plants and foliage. Made from extruded aluminium with a powder coated finish, this robust, versatile light is suited to more commercial areas such as pub gardens and hotel grounds, but can also fit in well in residential gardens; bridging the gap between commercial and garden lighting.
Both warm white and daylight white 12W CREE LED options are available with a high lumen output of up to 850lm and a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours. Spares stocked if required.
All exterior lighting products on our website 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. All joints must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay based soil areas. Also mains cable should be SWA rubber and not PVC.
All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. All cable joints must be 100% watertight. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
H05RN-F 3 Core Rubber Sheathed Mains Cable 1.5mm is recommended but do not use PVC flex cable as this can cause poor connections for the cable glands/joints and will lead to capillary action.
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.
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens 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 lumens and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens 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 ), Lumens ( brightness) and contrast ( colour of area ) .
