LAM 70w asymmetric metal halide flood light, black

The Lam is a high quality, powerful 6,250 lumen, slim line floodlight which provides low maintenance costs and long lamp life. It has a strong aluminium construction which is powder coated to protect against everyday use. The light distribution is asymmetric which means the lamp is set low in the main body and the internal reflector is curved around the lamp to punch the light down and forward. This means the the light fitting can be put in an almost flat position thereby reducing upward light pollution.

Metal halide lamps are very powerful and have a long life span which makes them ideal for high level security lighting and can be linked to a dusk to dawn photocell if required. They do not have instant light when first switched on and they can take up to 5 minutes to get up to full working potential, this also means you can not just switch them on and of constantly like a mains halogen lamp as they need time to cool down before they can re strike. This also means they are not suited to PIR motion sensors.

There are two lamp choices available, WDL which is a warm white 3,000 kelvin and NDL which is a cooler 4,200 kelvins ( please see kelvin chart below )

Please ensure that your installation is carried out by a NIC EIC certified electrical contractor as all external lighting needs to be 100% watertight.


Always try to avoid light pollution.

  What is light pollution ? 

Light pollution occurs when unwanted light falls outside the area intended for illumination. Unnecessary, excessive or badly designed and installed systems that allow light to go upwards or trespass outside the target area are wasteful and are of no benefit to anyone.Light pollution wastes precious natural resources, adversely affects the lives of animals, is a common cause of complaint when it shines into neighbouring property and makes the night sky too bright for astronomers to view the stars at night.

Controlling light pollution


Fully adjustable, concentrate the light where you need it most. There are two main types of reflector, symmetrical and asymmetrical. Symmetrical is the standard type found in most traditional style flood lights including the vanguard range where light is thrown is a wide beam angle. Asymmetrical is a more controlled light beam and thrown the light down and forward therefore reducing unwanted light spill 

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is  2,700 kelvins  is classed as warm white and is sympathetic to skin tones and warm brickwork. A lamp with a kelvin of 6500 is in the  cold blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer colour spectrum.
