The Matrix 240v bollard light has a built in 5w warm white LED in the top of the fitting to give you unique 1.6m defined radius of glare free lighting along paths, driveways and around decking and terraces. The bollard may be bolted to paving or decking (anchors supplied) or fixed into wet concrete or soft ground with an optional ground-spike (purchase separately).
Colour Finish: Graphite Grey Powder Coated Aluminium. IP Rating: IP54 Construction: Die-Cast aluminium with Pre-treatment for outdoor use.
Built in LED and PSU with a pre wired 2 metre 240v cable for connection in a remote junction box. Input voltage: 240v Light output 346 lumens.
Pre-wired with 2m rubber cable for connection via T9969 underground joint kit: the installer may shorten the fitted cable to make a weatherproof connection inside the base of the light using a gasketed 65mm conduit box or similar weatherproof junction box.
Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation.
All exterior lighting products on our website have an 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 joints. All joints must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel 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. Also mains cable should be SWA rubber and not PVC.
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 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees. When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
