Waymarker 180 - copper - 240v GU10


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 360, 12v, recessed light has 4 opposing windows providing 360 degree of lighting. It is useful where you want to cast a corona of light in all 4 directions along a path, patio decking or drive edge. They can also be placed in a wall if required to create star like patterns.  Patina effect will occur with Copper as it dulls down with the weather elements.  NOT SUITABLE TO DRIVE OVER.


                                                                              

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


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


Can be used with a GU10 LED lamp to reduce heat and electricity bills.

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, 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 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.

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
