Myra, adjustable twin lamp head, Anthracite mains 240v GU10, IP44



The myra is a group of light fittings from Germany. The group includes a single spot wall lamp and up / down wall lights, this enables you to have a consistent theme to your outdoor lighting. SEE BASE AND SPIKE OPTIONS AT BOTTOM OF PAGE. 
The Myra single head adjustable light fitting is a multi purpose exterior luminaire. Finished in silver grey with a slim shaft and offset adjustable mains GU10 lamps it can have a bottom section that is spiked to place it in soft grass areas or the bottom section can be a surface mounted base plate to bolt directly to a level concrete area. Each lamp head can be rotated and aimed at specific areas like a seating area and a walkway. The mains GU10  LED lamp is cool to touch and safe around children. The main head unit can be taller with the extension piece which in turn must have either the fixed base unit or the end spike unit. Connection lead length 3m.

All exterior lighting must be installed by a NIC EIC certified electrical contractor that has experience of exterior lighting installations. 


Energy efficient lamps


Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible ( Lumen's ) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. The latest LED lamps will reduce energy bills with no loss of light output and helps the environment too. 


Example of LED energy savings



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 colour 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’s 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 colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour 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. Lumen's 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 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's 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 5,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp onto 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 into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area ).

Installation 

All exterior lighting products on our web site 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.


All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. 

H07RN-F H07 3 Core Rubber Sheathed Mains Cable 1.5mm is recommended but do not use PVC flex cable as this is a poor connection for the cable glands and will lead to capillary action.
