Smart spike 60, mains 240v, GU10, 316 stainless steel spike light


The Smartspike 60 is a 316 stainless steel spike light and 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 high quality stainless steel provides added durability to this IP65 outdoor spot light and can be used in a coastal environment. Being it is made from high grade stainless steel the luminaire is highly weather resistant and rust proof.

Please try and make all terminations above ground where there is less chance of water ingress. All installations should be done by an NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes are available from our web site. 

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 whereas the warm white works better on brickwork and wood.

Installation 

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 and this can be done using IP68 in line connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. 


All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrical contractor and all cable joints must be 100% watertight. 


Lamp colour ( Kelvin's )
 

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.
