Smoothie recessed light - 316 Stainless steel - 12v

( Requires a transformer and LED MR16 lamp. )

E8011L is a stylish 12v recessed light for illuminating steps or patios which can take a choice of low energy led lamps. Order lamps separately. Smoothie is fitted with a flush frosted lens as standard to diffuse the lighting. 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.
 
Colour/Finish: 316 grade stainless steel
IP Rating: IP65
Construction: Front bezel is attached to tubular aluminium body which unscrews into 2 halves without tools for easy lamp changing. 1m cable via rear entry cable
Input Voltage:    12v
Lamp Type:
38 degree beam for wider staircases or 60 degree beam for wider coverage of a narrower staircase, path or patio. MR16 warm white LED lamps include 3w or 5w for lighting across wider steps; Order lamps separately.

Installation:

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.

Installation

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 light fitting to prevent water ingress. Smoothies should not be installed in ground subject to water logging, an IP68 light should be considered instead. Connect input cable to cable from transformer using T9962 cable joint or T9963 cable splice kit. Water is the big enemy for any exterior lighting project and great care must be taken when making cable joints. We recommend using either the magic gel or resin mix packs to ensure a 100% watertight job. You will also need to work out how many lights you can put on each transformer and try not to either overload or under load as this will lead to premature failures.
