Odyssey spike light, IP65, 35W, mains GU10

The Odyssey spike has a short spike length and is designed to be used low to the ground for up lighting etc, if you require a taller spike light to shine down in to flower beds or illuminate steps etc then the smart spike product range would suit this requirement better.

The Oddysey range gives a stunning designer look at an affordable price. This premium range of solid stainless steel exterior lighting offers the best in design and luxury. Made from 304 stainless steel which is ideal for any property not near a coastal environment. A short stainless steel spike is included with an adjustable knuckle joint head for rotation and tilt. The spike light can be used for a variety of situations from creating accent in a flower border to highlighting specific garden ornaments. Can also be used to up light small trees. Ideal as a feature light and for ground level pathway illumination. This fitting also comes with a pre wired 3mtr length of flex.

Energy efficient lamp option

You have a choice of lamps which include the new GU10 mains LED lamps. You can choose from a cool white or cool white. Cool white is better for colder colours like white, blue and green and the warm white works well with yellow, red, brown etc

Light levels ( LUX )

Light levels are measured in something called LUX. Put simply LUX is a measurement of light falling on a given surface area. For example an average LUX of 200 would be needed for an outdoor tennis court for recreational purposes and a side street  walkway would have an average of 5 LUX. To calculate lux levels you need a very good calculator or computer as there is a number of factors that need to be taken in to account.

Example of how lux levels raise when the beam angle is tighter


Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have a 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 and transformer joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin 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. If possible use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.

All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrical contractor and all cable joints must be 100% watertight. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
