Mini eye LED out, warm white LED, stainless steel, 1.9w,

 65 lumens, 3,000 kelvin


( Requires a 12v Transformer )


Very traditional wall mounted surface step light with anti glare hood and built in LED lamps.. Ideal as a low level marker light fixed to a wall or mounted to illuminate steps. Mains 12v  supply.

There are advantages and disadvantages to using a mains 240v LED luminaire compared to a traditional low voltage fitting or mains GU10. 

LED luminaires run very cool and therefore safe to touch, they also use very low power consumption to save on electricity bills and also have a long life span. And if you use a mains 240v  LED luminaire there will be  no need for a transformer.  

One disadvantage to using a mains 240v luminaire rather than a low voltage one is when the luminaires fails you will have to throw the whole fitting in the bin and buy a new one and if they no longer sell that product you will need to replace all the units. Another disadvantage to using mains 240v in the garden is the danger of cutting through the cable. A 12v supply is a lot safer for exterior installations.


The ideal solution would be to use either a mains or Low voltage system with a LED lamp that can be replaced at any time

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 ( 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. 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 lumen's 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 ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area )


Installation

The installation should be carried out by a NIC EIC electrical contractor who has experience in installing exterior lighting products.  the weakest part of an installation is where the cable joints are made. All joints need to be 100% watertight and joined by either heat shrink kits or waterproof enclosure boxes which can then be filled with magic gel solution.
