The Smartspike 60 in a Satin Silver anodised quality finish spike light is a stylish quality built fully adjustable spot light, ideal for use in any garden or outdoor space to highlight, plants, trees or statues. Please take a look at our design ideas page to give you some tips on placing lights etc.

The fittting is an IP65 outdoor spot light.

This fitting can also be used with an ECO friendly LED GU10 lamp if required.
LED lamps offer energy savings over the traditional halogen GU10 lamps and are also cool to touch and safe around children. Warm white and cool white are available and the cool white works well when illuminating shrubs and trees where as the warm white works better on brickwork and wood.

  Example of LED lamp savings

Four alternative colour finishes of the Smartspike 60 are also available: Black, Copper, Stainless Steel and Cocoa Brown.
Please try and make all terminations above ground where there is less chance of water ingress. All installations should be done by a NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes are available from our web site.

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.


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.
