Hilospot, wall up/down light, Natural Copper, Mains 240v GU10 IP65
Crafted from elegant Natural Copper the Hilospot gives a stunning designer look at an affordable price and has a traditional look and feel and will weather over time to create a charming natural effect that blends in with various outdoor surroundings.
This organic effect on the natural copper happens because it reacts with atmospheric oxygen, which means a 'Verdigris' effect may be present after longer period of time. This oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of the natural copper, creeating a traditional decorative appearance.
If however, a pristine, shiny copper finish is preferred, a lacquer can easily be applied to prevent the natural copper process.
This premium range of exterior lights
offers the best in design and luxury.
The up/down light is a 240v wall or post mount model for fixed up / down lighting and grazing applications to create
stylish wall illumination effects. 220v - 240v models utilise GU10 LED lamps which means there is no need for a bulky transformer
base and they fit mains wiring points on exterior house walls and pillars.
5w LED lamps with narrow to medium beam may be needed to create a powerful effect on darker stone and brick walls, whereas 5w LED lamps with a wider flood beam are usually ideal
for up / down lighting on lighter, rendered or stone walls for a flood effect.
A 5w LED module provides a long life, low energy option for lighting a number of subjects.
It has flush lenses which shed water and dirt and are easy to clean.
Coloured Dichroic Lenses - Instant Colour Options for your Garden Lighting
To enhance and add unique character to any garden lighting scheme, you can add a 50mm Dichroic lens as an optional
extra. These lenses are simply inserted behind the clear glass lens of the outer cap and are held in place by a spring clip.
Six colours are available: Blue, Green, Moonlight (light Blue),Purple,Red and Yellow.
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 ) .
Example of LED energy savings
The weakest point is generally the installation of the
product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground buried lights or 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. Always use Rubber SWA cable and not PVC.
All outdoor lighting should be installed by a qualified NIC EIC certified electrician to ensure a safe and water tight installation.
