Waymarker 180 - 316 marine grade stainless steel - 12v

( Requires a 12v toroidal transformer )



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.
The 180, 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 corona of light across a path or drive edge without casting light backwards onto planting or other finishes behind. Will take the weight of a standard vehicle but NOT SUITABLE FOR AREAS WITH HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES.

                               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 90mm length

Installation


The plastic sleeve is built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a hole cut with a coring bit: 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. Connect input cable to cable from transformer using T9962

 cable joint or T9963 cable splice kit.

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 and transformer be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cables together. Magic gel or a resin mix can be poured in to the connection boxes for a 100% water tight finish.

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.
