Kuda wall lantern, IP44, 1 x 20w compact fluorescent

The Kuda range includes a wall light above and a bollard option perfect for creating the ideal outdoor lighting scheme. Manufactured from die cast aluminium and powder coated for a durable weatherproof finish.

This lantern has an almost oriental feel to it  and with its opal lens it throws a soft diffused light.

A 20w compact fluorescent lamp is required and the KUDA is IP44 rated for exterior use.

A 20w compact fluorescent lamp will produce around 1,30 Lumens of light

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

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 6,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm coulour wavelength helps to soften skin tones and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour  would be used in offices or a fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. There‚Äôs nothing that can sour your opinion of a compact fluorescent  or LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa. When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and color scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a color temperature to match.

Light output ( Lumens )

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 6,000 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 6,000 kelvin light on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp on to 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 in to account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumens ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area )

The matching bollard also uses a 20w compact fluorescent lamp which is a very punchy light source. The bollard can illuminate a driveway or garden pathway and the wall lights can be on the entrance of the house or on a rear wall of the property in the garden to compliment the bollards.

All exterior lighting installations should be done by a qualified electrician to make sure that all the cable joints are 100% water tight.
