12v - Adjustable & Robust Swivel Joint Spotlight
Spike lights have been the most popular garden spot lights for years without any significant design changes. Now we've a better, stronger, more versatile light. Simple to adjust, will shine in any direction and looks fantastic. This upgraded design is the “ULTRA SPIKE LIGHT” ! The new strengthened ‘swivel’ neck joint design adjusts via a serrated clamp that is crafted from solid brass in a gold or silver finish.
All versions are supplied with a 5m cable to enable the option of a 10m space between two lights, cutting down the number of cable joins in lighting installation.
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.
1. Try and keep cable runs from transformers to garden light fittings as short as possible to ensure optimum performance, no more than two meters to the first lamp.
2. Locate a transformer centrally amongst a group of garden lights it is to power; e.g. a radius of 8 meters for 5w LED lamps
3. If you decide to run 2 sets of garden lights operated by separate switches, you must provide 2 separate transformers & circuits.
4. Try not to put more than 10 lights on any one transformer otherwise voltage drop can reduce lamp and transformer performance.
5. Try to avoid putting cable runs straight through the middle of the garden and try to run them along the fence line first, this will reduce the risk of putting a spade or fork through them when gardening.
6. Where possible always try to keep the transformer above ground mounted on a fence post or spike, if you do have to bury them make sure you use the burial kits and fill with resin or magic gel to reduce water ingress.
