Spartan 26w Adjustable Recessed Light 240v Warm White



Spartan recessed uplight combines a cool top lens, long lamp life and energy efficiency for uplighting medium to large trees from lawns or paving.
Spartan provides a powerful 36° uplighting beam, using 1x 26 watt COB LED, while maintaining a typical top lens temperature of under 40 degrees C - so Spartan can be used even in walkover areas to uplight trees with an open canopy and branch structure from directly below. 
 
The shallow depth and no need to enter the Spartan fitting for lamp installation or replacement make it quick and easy to fit unlike its metal halide cousins.  The dark  non-reflective interior means less light refraction through the lens to give away its position in the landscape. 
Spartan has a 316 stainless steel lens rim, a cast aluminium body and a polymer sleeve for recessing into the ground.
To facilitate removal of screws for maintenance, apply copper grease to the threads of all screws being fitted for retention of bezels, grills or other top plates or retaining rings. Copper grease resists degradation due to heat and protects against difficulty in removing screws, particularly where stainless steel screws are fitted with aluminium parts. It may also be used on screw threads of screw-off bezels or glare shields. Ensure surplus is cleaned off with a solvent to prevent staining.         

Construction:  Cast aluminium body with borosilicate glass lenses, stainless steel top ring is attached to tubular aluminium body. 2m cable via rear entry cable gland and plastic soil sleeve.

IP Rating: IP 67.      Input Voltage: 240v      Colour Temperature 3000K     Lumens 2250 


Installation


Direct burial in the ground: prewired with rubber cable and 20mm IP68 gland for connection to mains supply via a separate underground joint kit (order T9969 separately). Provide 300mm depth of shingle drainage below the uplight: do not use in waterlogged ground.

Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protectioin for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation.

All exterior lighting products on our website 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 inline 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. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay based soil areas. Also mains cable should be SWA rubber and not PVC.

All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and ideally signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. 

H05RN-F  3 Core Rubber Sheathed Mains Cable 1.5mm is recommended but do not use PVC flex cable as this can cause poor connections for the cable glands/joints and will lead to capillary action.


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.
