Tenda, LED, 2 x 3.3w, warm white 3,000 kelvin, wall light, brushed aluminium, 310 lumen's, IP44



The TENDA comes in two lamp colour options which include a very cool white 6500k  a warm white 3000k 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. 

The fitting produces a wide beam angle for down lighting a walkway or entrance area and also has a slim pencil beam of light out of the top to project upwards on 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 off the TENDA makes a nice feature light which will suit many applications and styles of property. 

A standard household lamp is generally 2700 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.

310 lumen's output which is the equivalent to a 5w LED bulb.

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. 






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 5,000 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 5,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp onto 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 into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area ).


Installation


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 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.  Also mains cable should be SWA rubber and not PVC.


All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. all cable joints must be 100% watertight. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
