Waymarker 180 - 316 Stainless steel - 240v GU10
Waymarkers are a smart modern driveway edge light for installing in paving along a
pathway, driveway markers and patio decking lights. They are available in 12v and
mains 240v GU10, in both cases a LED lamp can be used to save on energy and keep
the fitting cool to touch. A compact fluorescent GU10 base lamp will also work in the waymarker.
12v, recessed light has 2 windows providing 180 degree lighting to one
side of the top plate. It is useful where you want to cast a stream of
light across a path or drive edge without casting light backwards onto
planting or other finishes behind. Could also be mounted in a wall to create a stunning light effect.Will take the weight of a standard vehicle. NOT SUITABLE FOR AREAS WITH HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES.
Can be used with a GU10 LED lamp to reduce heat and electricity bills.

All recessed luminaires must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow
water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joint must be 100%
watertight and there a number or waterproof transformer boxes and heat shrink cable
joint kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections be
kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical
installation is joining cables together.
The plastic sleeve is built into the wall during construction: the light pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in
place by an o-ring, leaving a front plate with no visible fixing screws. Suitable drainage should be provided below each
fitting to prevent water logging. Waymarkers should not be installed in ground subject to water logging, an IP68 light should
be considered. Using
a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due
to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD
protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Where a
garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed
lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units
with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault
tolerance and reliability in the total installation
Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting
installations before. Also ensure that all rubber gaskets are clean and dry before
screwing down the front glass and bezel for a water tight seal. We would suggest
you use a copper grease on the fixing screws to reduce corrosion and make life easier
when you need to remove the front bezel.
