The importance of having a completely dry connection on the electrical cables etc can not be understated. Water and electricity do not mix well and the weakest point for any exterior electrical installation is always where a joint is made. There is a selection of waterproof enclosures available on our web site and we would highly recommend the use of them when installing the exterior lights. Please ensure that your electrician reads all the instructions and installs them to the letter using the appropriate waterproof kits. We would highly recommend keeping all jointing and transformers above ground where possible, if you do need to put the joint in ground then please use the potting kits with a resin gel fill pack.
Adequate drainage must also be made under each luminaire especially if you are in a clay based soil area.
Please ensure that the electrical company is NIC EIC approved and have carried out exterior lighting installations before as it is not as straight forward as an internal electrical installation. Failure to adequately install a 100% water tight installation will create problems for the future and could result in having to dig up a driveway etc to fix a poor cable joint.
