AlvaLED – Adjustable GU10 Spike Light (240V) – Black / Titanium Silver / Cocoa Copper


The AlvaLED Adjustable GU10 Spike Light is a smart and modern garden spotlight. Not only does the spotlight adjust over 180 degrees, it will also mount in various locations. Mount into soft ground with the supplied 245mm spike, or surface mount with the attached U bracket. The GU10 bulb holder results in multiple options for the LED lamp used (sold separately), such as lumen output, wattage and colour temperature.

Three different finishes available:

  • Classic black powder coated finish – popular choice, looks great in daylight and disappears in darknes
  • Modern titanium silver anodised finish – lightweight alternative to contemporary stainless steel
  • Cocoa anodised finish – designed to look very similar to polished copper at a fraction of the price


Lamp 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. 

                                                 

Installation 


All exterior lighting products on our website have an IP rating which is explained further in our design ideas section but in simple terms the IP rating is 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 as the weakest point is always cable joints. All joints must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or 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
