Low voltage is the safer option in the garden due to the ground being
dug etc. You will need to use a transformer which matches the lamp
voltage, for example if you had 6 fittings each with a MR16 35w lamp
that would be 6 x 35w = 210 watts so you would need a transformer that
was about 250 va as you need some spare capacity on it to function
correctly. Standard MR16 low voltage lamps can use either an electronic
or standard toroidal type transformer but if you decide to use LED lamps
then they work best on the toroidal type transformer.
We recommend you use the heat shrink kits for cable jointing and also
waterproof enclosures with the hard setting resin compound to minimise
the risk of water ingress.
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
