Ultra-Spikelight 360 - 1m Twin Spikelight - GU10 60mm - Garden Green Aluminium (240v)


.This is the latest revolutionary ‘Ultra-Spikelight 360’, and quite possibly the most versatile garden spikelight ever seen.

This simple, robust  240v garden spikelight is supplied with two spot lights but enables up to four  to be attached to a single pole via a unique screw-on wheel system that allows easy angle adjustment of each light. Once fixed to the wheel from above or below, each spotlight can be adjusted to shine up or down in any direction using the new strengthened ‘swivel’ neck joint that adjusts via a serrated clamp.

The benefits of this are fantastic, as low planting can be highlighted at the same time as up-lighting smaller trees or garden statues. Alternatively, all spotlights can shine in the same direction to create a stronger light beam if preferred.

The ‘Ultra Spikelight 360’ is available in 240v and 12v in several variations including this elegant and fresh 'Garden Green’ finish. All spotlight heads are supplied with a 1m length of cable.

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 the 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.

 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.      

                                                    

Example of energy efficient lamps

Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumens, Kelvins and efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible      ( Lumens ) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. The latest LED lamps will reduce energy bills with no loss of light output and helps the environment too.
