Tenda, LED, 2 x 3.3w, cool white 6,500 kelvin, wall light, brushed aluminium, 340 lumen's
The TENDA comes in three lamp colour options which include a very cool white 6500
k a warm white 3000k and blue LED so it will suit almost any application.
A very Stunning and unique design wall light with LED technology for long lamp life
and low running cost's.
This unique styled wall light has a Cool white LED lamp which produces a wide beam
angle for down lighting a walkway or entrance area and also has a slim pencil beam
of light out the top to project up a wall face. The luminaire can also be inverted
to have the wider beam thrown up the building and the pencil beam down. Even when
switched of the TENDA makes a nice feature light which will suit many applications
and styles of property.
The lamp and gear are integral to the luminaire.
COOL WHITE 6500 kelvin a standard household lamp is generally 2,700 kelvin which is a very warm white spectrum. The advantage of a cool white spectrum at night is that it appears a lot brighter than a warm white colour and works well against white walls. However a cool white is not good for skin tone which would appear washed out.
340 lumens output which is the equivalent to a 6w compact fluorescent lamp.
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
Lamp colour works in Kelvins and a standard house hold lamp may be 2700 kelvin which
is at the warm white spectrum and good for skin tones and a relaxing soft light.
At the other end of the spectrum 6500 kelvin would be a very cool blueish type of
light that will appear brighter to the naked eye at night and good against white
wash walls but not good for skin tones as the would appear greyish and washed out.
Light output ( Lumen's )
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's
the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumen's work in conjunction with kelvins and
should not be taken in isolation of each other, for example if you had a very warm
white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumen's and you then had another
lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's the cooler
lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this
is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another
factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast so if you shine a white 6,000
kelvin light on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp on to a white wall the
warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused
on. So when choosing a lamp always take in to account the area you want to illuminate
and think about Kelvins ( colour ), Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast
( colour of area )
First and foremost all new external electrical works must be installed by a PART
P registered electrical contractor. The contractor must supply you with full certification
once the work is completed. For a mains 240v supply they should use SWA ( steel
wired armour ) cable. If a 12v low voltage system is being installed then flexible
round double insulated cable can be used (
NOT PVC CABLE
). Each new garden supply should also be on its own RCD. Cable should be buried
to a safe depth to avoid any unnecessary risk due to garden forks or spades.
Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation 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 a 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 and transformer 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. Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation
but care must be taken with the cable runs.
