This luminaire is designed for exterior ground use and is IP67
( see guide under design ideas )Made from 316 stainless steel
It can be used with a standard MR16 low voltage lamp to a maximum of 35w or you
could use a MR16 LED lamp so the fitting is safe to touch and ECO friendly.There
is a ground potting pot included with the fitting.This fitting can take a maximum
load of 0.5 tons and can't be used as a drive over light.
88% Typical energy savings using LED lamps
Low voltage is the safer option in the garden due to the ground being dug etc. You
will need to use a transformer which matches the lamp voltage, for example if you
had 6 fittings each with a MR16 35w lamp that would be 6 x 35w = 210 watts so you
would need a transformer that was about 250 va as you need some spare capacity on
it to function correctly. Standard MR16 low voltage lamps can use either an electronic
or standard toroidal type transformer but if you decide to use LED lamps then they
work best on the toroidal type transformer.
We recommend you use the heat shrink kits for cable jointing and also waterproof
enclosures with the hard setting resin compound to minimise the risk of water ingress.
Please try and make all terminations above ground where there is less chance of
water ingress. All installations should be done by a NIC EIC electrical contractor
to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes
are available from our web site.
