Fixed quadro, GU10, ground recessed, 304 stainless steel cover plate, IP67, 5 ton load


The square recessed ground up light uses a mains GU10 lamp which can be either halogen, LED or cold cathode ( Fluorescent ) When used with the LED lamp the light fitting will run cool and be safe to touch, it will also use a small amount of electricity and last a long time. Ideal set in decking, concrete, driveways etc. 

All recessed luminaires must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joint must be 100% watertight and there a number or waterproof transformer boxes and heat shrink cable joint kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections and transformer be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cables together.
Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before.
LED lams are available on this site and also a GU10 fluorescent which will create a very wide beam of soft light.  LED lamps have a long life, use minimal electricity and are cool to touch, making them safe around children


Energy efficient lamps


Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and efficiency. There are other factors but not so relevant for exterior lighting products.  Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light out put possible ( Lumen's ) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. The latest LED technology and compact fluorescent lamps are amongst the most efficient you can buy today. An example would be to change a mains halogen GU10 35w lamp to a ECO friendly GU10 5w LED lamp. The same be done by changing the older GLS light bulb for a compact fluorescent lamp. Reduced energy bills with no loss of light output helps the environment and reduce your energy bills.

Installation 

Please check the specification for dimensions before purchasing.


It is important that adequate drainage is allowed for when installing this type of product especially in clay based soil beds.
A NIC EIC electrical contractor should be used to ensure a 100% water tight installation. There are resin kits and heat shrink kits available from us to help make the perfect waterproof joint

Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have a 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 and transformer joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin 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. If possible use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.
