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.
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.
