Odyssey, White powder coated, fixed down light, IP44, 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 and black.
The Odyssey exterior garden light is one of the best in design and luxury. There is also an 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, an up/down light can be 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 be used in this light fitting which will reduce energy bills.

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 36 degree lamp would provide a Medium spot light beam and a 90 degree lamp would provide 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 and only use Rubber sheathed mains cabling and NOT PVC.


Installation 

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 joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors and waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix. 


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. n>

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 ) .
