Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is 2700 kelvin is classed as warm white and sympathetic
to skin tones and warm brickwork. A kelvin of 6500k 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 ( 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 lumen's and a 26w compact fluorescent would
produce around 1,800 lumen's. 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.
Care should be taken for local wildlife, insects, and general light pollution, this means the warmer colour spectrum
does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue spectrum of light which can disrupt their normal
night time activity, This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fitting works better as well as reducing overall
light pollution in the area.
