These products utilise integral chips from LED manufacturer CREE, with ‘BIN’ number 8B4. This ‘BIN’
number is a great advantage for professional designers as it gives them confidence is specifying a
particular range of products with complete colour consistency, and eliminates the visible shift in
colour which can be noticeable with poorer quality products placed in close proximity to one another.
Our high quality integral LED's have an extremely long life expectancy. At the end of the LED's life, or in the unlikely
event of a premature failure, the LED can be factory replaced for a small fee if out of guarantee.
colour ( Kelvins )
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins
which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting
the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area
and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark
and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as
white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees. When you buy a new, energy efficient
bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
All ground 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 transformer boxes and heat shrink
cable joint kits on our web site to choose from.
We would advise that all connections and transformers be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any
electrical installation is joining cables together. Magic Gel should be used in the termination boxes to reduce
the risk of water ingress.
Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before and conforms
to Part P certification.
Care should be taken for the environment and local wildlife to maintain the ecological balance. Insects, bats, wildlife can
all be effected by light pollution.
The warmer colour spectrum of ( 2,700 Kelvins ) does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the
blue colour spectrum of light
around 6,000 kelvins which can disrupt their normal night time activity. This also applies to bats where a anti glare
works better as well as reducing the overall light pollution in the area.
