Smoothie light with grill - copper - 12v

E8221 is a stylish 12v recessed light for illuminating steps or patios with a choice of 20-35w halogen lamp or low energy led module. Smoothie is fitted with a frosted lens as standard to diffuse the lighting and the horizontal grill hides the lamp from above when walking past. The light is located by an “O” ring on the body into a sleeve tube so that no external screw fixings are visible. Remember that recessed steplights are in effect recessed spotlights - avoid using them facing viewpoints.

Typical halogen to LED savings 



The plastic sleeve is built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a hole cut with a coring bit: the light pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in place by an o-ring, leaving a front plate with no visible fixing screws. Suitable drainage should be provided below each fitting to prevent water logging. Smoothies should not be installed in ground subject to water logging, an IP 68 light such as a Neptune Recessed light should be considered. Connect input cable to cable from transformer using T9962 cable joint or T9963 cable splice kit.
