The Quadmarka is a contemporary and elegant recessed light suitable for illuminating steps and outlining other areas in the garden, mounted in the ground, walls or decking. It is made from high quality, marine grade 316 stainless steel, which has an even greater resistance to pitting corrosion / rusting than other lower grade steel.
This VERSA plug & play 12v recessed light couldn’t be simpler to install. The 3m cable supplied is capped with a
2 pin plug which simply plugs directly into a transformer (or splitter if multiple fittings are installed), the transformer
plugs into a mains socket and it is ready to go.
Please note: This fitting must be installed with the mounting sleeve and additional rubber seal. If the sleeving and seal is not used, the Guarantee will be void. Not for use in areas prone to water-logging or flooding.
The robust black plastic sleeve will be built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a drilled out hole.
The main part of the light then pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in place by internal gripping ‘teeth’
(see detailed image), leaving only the streamline front dome on show.
Contrary to popular belief, Stainless steel needs looking after; especially in exposed and coastal areas. If not cleaning on a regular basis, the acid that is ever present in the air ( and salt in coastal areas) will affect the surface causing pitting and even rust like staining (known as ‘Tea staining’ ) to appear.
To keep your lights looking good, simply wipe clean the outside with a damp cloth and then dry once a month, (more frequently in coastal areas). Specialist stainless steel cleaning products can be used (We recommend and stock ‘Kilrock stainless steel cleaner’) but never use an ABRASIVE cleaner. In extreme conditions we recommend applying 2 coats of Clear lacquer to protect the steel surface. (We recommend and stock ‘Simoniz’ clear lacquer).
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.
