Waymarker 180 - copper - 12v

( Requires a 12v toroidal transformer )

Waymarkers are a smart modern drive over 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.

Typical halogen to LED savings


The plastic sleeve is built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a hole cut with a coring bit, the light fitting then 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. Smoothies should not be installed in ground subject to water logging, an IP 68 light such as a Neptune Recessed 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.
