The rusty range is a one off design concept and very unique. There are a number of Rusty variations and all made from solid
strong and heavy FeCSI steel.
These fittings are simply built to last and blend into the outside environment. They are designed to weather as they get
older and turn into a dark rust brown colour which blends in with the exterior surroundings.
You can mix and match the rusty products to create your own unique lighting design. They would suit an oriental style
The rusty slot has two heights to choose from. They can be bolted directly to a flat concrete ground or mounted on a
spike to place in soft earth.
The slot is specifically designed to throw light down and across a path way. These luminaires are designed to be very
low key and very low glare. The light is very soft and ideal for pathways.
This fitting comes with an integral 3000k warm white LED module with 30 lumens and acts as a marker light. Choice of two
Bollard types and spacing
Bollard lights are available in a massive choice of styles, finish and lamp options. You need to think about how the
light will be used, for example a small garden pathway, the main driveway or to illuminate steps etc. Some bollards
have built in LED lamps and they generally offer lower levels of light ( lumens ) than say an E27 LED bulb or E27
compact fluorescent bulb. Also if the lamp is an integral part of the bollard then it cannot be replaced if it fails
in future so you will have to purchase a complete new bollard. The spacing of the bollards will depend on the lamp output,
louvre design, height etc but a general rule of thumb would be no less than 3 meters and no more than 12 meters apart.
The shorter distance would be for garden pathways and the longer distance for long driveways.
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.
