Eye down, LED, 3w , warm white, 3,000 kelvin, 15 degree Narrow beam, IP44, 190 lumen's


( Requires a transformer )

Wired in series


Ideal fitting to fit into soffits and eaves of buildings to wash light down the front of a property. Also good above garage doors.

Because of varying roof designs not all properties have soffit boards. Soffit refers to the material forming a ceiling from the top of an exterior house wall to the outer edge of the roof or fascia board, i.e., bridging the gap between the external brick, block or cladding and the roof-line. Soffit boards or planks are often fixed to the underside of the eaves.

When lighting is fixed into the soffit boards great lighting effects can be created that wash the walls with light. Narrow beam lamps and coloured lamps can also be used to make more of a decorative effect if desired. 

Some soffit recessed lighting can be re-lamped from above and below to make maintenance easier. Wiring regulations would suggest that an ingress protection of IP23 would be sufficient in this location but using a fitting with a higher IP figure can only ensure extra protection in exposed locations.

Lumen output is 190 lumens which is about the same as a 3w LED lamp.

Where depth is available they can also be used in an entrance porch linked to a motion detection PIR so they come on only when required.  

The use of energy efficient LED lamps are long lasting and therefore ideal for areas where access is a problem and regular lamp changes would not be desirable.

Installation

For fitting in a ceiling / soffit with a maximum material thickness of 30 mm. The transformer must be  a LED 350ma unit wired in series. All exterior lighting products must be installed by a NIC EIC electrical contractor.



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 brickwork. A kelvin of 5000k is in the  blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum.




Light output ( Lumen's )


The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumen's 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 lumen's and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's 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 ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area ) .
