dyssey, 304 stainless steel, fixed down light, IP65, 35W GU10


The Odyssey fixed range gives a stunning contemporary designer look at an affordable price. This premium range is also available in stainless steel, black and copper finish.The Odyssey exterior garden light offers the best in design and luxury. There is also a up/down light and a fully adjustable wall mounted spot light available, this makes life easy for the designer who wants keep a theme running through the exterior lighting. They can be mounted as a spot light over a BBQ area, a up/down light fixed to entrance ways and walls and the fixed down light can be mounted on fence pillars to illuminate a pathway or shrubs. Mains GU10 LED lamps can also be used in this light fitting which will reduce energy bills. If you are near a coast then we would recommend you sue a higher grade 316 stainless steel product like the Atlantis range.

Lamp colour is denoted in Kelvins and the lower the number the warmer the lamp for example 2700k is warm white  and 6500k would be very cool white. A 12 degree lamp would be a spot light beam and a 45 degree would be more of a flood light beam.


All outdoor lighting should be installed by a certified PART P,  NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and water tight installation.


Installation 

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 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.


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 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.

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 receptorsin 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 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 ) .n>


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.

                         


IP Rating

All the luminaries on our web site have been specifically designed fit for purpose and assigned a relevant IP rating which denotes the amount of protection that is required from water and dust. More information on IP ratings can be found in the design ideas section on this web site.
