Smart spike 60, mains 240v, GU10, black powder coat finish


The Smartspike 60 spike light is a stylish 60mm diameter spotlight, ideal for use in any garden or outdoor space to highlight, plants, trees or statues. The 2.5mm anodised aluminium body and tempered glass diffusers provide added durability to this IP65 outdoor spot light. Four alternative finishes are available: Stainless Steel, Copper, Satin Silver and Cocoa Brown, whilst matching adjustable and twin spot lights and a smaller spike lights are also available to portray a modern look throughout the garden.

This Smartspike 60 is supplied with approx. 2m of 3 core H05RNF cable but is also available in a 5m cable option. This longer cable length gives the option of a 10m space between two lights should it be needed, and could cut down the number of cable joins in outdoor lighting installation. Light can also be spread to a wider area with longer cable length.

The Smartspike 60 black powder coated colour 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.

The high quality powder coated body provides added durability to this IP65 outdoor spot light. Being a powder coated finish the luminaire is highly weather resistant and rust proof.

This fitting can also be used with an ECO friendly LED GU10 lamp. 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. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.

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.

Installation 

Please check the specification for dimensions before purchasing

Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation and 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 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 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.
