Waymarker 180 - 316 Stainless steel - 240v GU10



The 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 an LED lamp can be used to save on energy and keep the fitting cool to touch.

The 240v, recessed light has 2 windows providing 180 degree of 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. Should take the weight of a standard vehicle. NOT SUITABLE FOR AREAS WITH HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES. 

It is recommended Not for use in areas prone to waterlogging or flooding especially clay based soils with poor drainage.

                                                                                     

                                    The cut out of the installation pot is 67.5mm diameter x 120mm depth


                                      The diameter of the body of the fitting is 63.5mm x 110mm length


Installation

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, if so 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.

All recessed luminaires must have adequate drainage beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joints must be 100% watertight and there are a number or waterproof junction 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.

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  copper grease on the fixing screws to reduce corrosion and make life easier when changing bulbs. We recommend using GU10 LED bulbs to reduce heat and electricity bills.


Energy efficient lamps

Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible (Lumen's ) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. Kelvin is the measurement of colour temperature and 2700k is from the warm white spectrum and 5000k from the colder white spectrum. The latest LED technology lamps are amongst the most efficient you can buy today. An example would be to change a mains halogen GU10 35w lamp to a ECO friendly GU10 5w LED lamp. Reduced energy bills with no loss of light output helps the environment and reduce your energy bills.
