Unibeam is an adjustable spike-mount 240v LED outdoor spotlight with a telescopic glare shield, for focusing the beam angle range from 10° up to 60° making the light very versatile. Stylish and modern exterior lighting for a wide range of subjects including large wide-spreading shrubs, to more focused outdoor lighting on objects like statues. It has a high-efficiency, built-in 12w COB LED providing light output equivalent to a 75w halogen lamp with a multi-focused beam. Unibeam represents cutting edge design in outdoor LED lighting; an outside LED spotlight with a 550 lumen output and a class leading 10°-60° warm white, adjustable beam angle.
240v Spike spotlights need their own circuit from an existing or new fuse box. The box must be protected by a residual current device (RCD) and controlled with a double-pole isolating switch. As a general rule of thumb, the armoured cables need to be run underground- at least 450mm with weatherproof junction boxes. Use an electrician qualified under 'Part P' building regulations to install any mains electricity outdoors who will certify the work properly.
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.
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.
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.
