The Decimina is a stylish recessed light that not only can be used on decking, this versatile light can also be used as a step light, recessed path light or wall light as it can be mounted on virtually any surface. In a Stainless Steel finish this is bound to fit into a garden setting. It uses a 12v MR11 lamp which are ordered separately.
The Decimina is a smaller version of the Decimax which uses a standard MR16 . A strong 20mm satin stainless steel rim surrounds the 30mm diameter glass lens, which is secured in place with 3 screws. This makes changing the lamp a very simple task.
It also has a very high IP Rating of IP67 so can withstand outdoor weather conditions such as rain and strong jets of water, including being temporarily submerged should there be very heavy rainfall. Once the 60mm diameter mounting hole has been drilled, the stainless steel deck light simply slots into place.
MR11 LED lamps will work from a normal 12v A/C transformer as used for 12v halogen lamps. No special LED driver is required.A clear lens will ensure optimum light output in a spot beam, whereas a frosted lens will reduce glare, diffusing light more softly at a slightly dimmer light output.
Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have an IP rating appropriate to each light fitting and its intended application and is therefore fit for purpose. Water ingress is the enemy for outdoor lighting and the products supplied are only as good as the installation. The weakest point is always cable joints. All joints must be made 100% watertight and this can be done using IP68 cable connectors and/or waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a re-enterable liquid gel mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay-based soil areas. If possible, use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light. Care must be taken with the cable runs and not to install transformers more than 30 metres away from the furthest fitting to avoid any voltage drop. Cabling should be 2 core Rubber HO5RN-F or HO7RN-F and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation. Always check the correct type of transformer you need for your fittings. We recommend wiring in parallel with Toroidal AC and LED DC drivers. But when using Milliamp mA LED drivers, they should always be wired in series. Plug and Play kits are simply a case of daisy chaining the fittings via plug and play junction boxes, connectors and extension cables using a 2-pin plug arrangement. These Plug and Play fittings should only be used for small domestic projects due to voltage drop over 5 metres.
All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
