Apollo, 35w Metal Halide, wide flood beam, IP65

E94035WM is a surface-mount spotlight with a 60 degree beam angle primarily designed for energy-saving up-lighting of trees. Apollo has an adjustable stirrup bracket for mounting on walls or an optional ground spike. The lens has "through-flow" slots to allow water to flow off the lens even if pointed directly upward or fitted with a glare shield. It uses a 35 watt single-ended G8.5 metal halide lamp (Order lamps separately) and polished reflector to project a 60 degree symmetric circular beam for uplighting trees: the central 60 degree beam is ideal for up-lighting from beneath and is complemented by peripheral light spread for coverage of canopies.
Where the shape of the tree falls within a 35-40 degree arc, use E94070S to cover up to 10m high, subject to density & colour of canopy & structure: perception of brightness varies between different people.
If the tree has a wider spread, especially over 10m, use 1 or more E94035WM 60 degree spotlights for a fuller effect.
Use 150w models for larger trees or where the trees are further from the viewpoint to compensate for the distance.
Where the outer canopy is dense and the inner canopy & structure is more open, uplight the central trunk & branches with one Apollo35 36 degree spotlight and position other Apollo35 spotlights to illuminate the outer canopy. Look up through the tree you propose to light - if you can see up through the branches, then light will penetrate the canopy and structure as well. If not, use up-lights to light the tree externally.
Lighting large trees is a black art: test the position of up-lights with a temporary wiring set-up before final installation. Lighting of trees with very open canopy may be brighter than desired - consider Apollo35 35w metal halide spotlights or Elipta spotlights with 7w LED lamps as a lower power alternative. This advice is for general guidance and subject to branch & canopy structure and foliage density, colour & translucence.

Lamp type

Ceramic type CDMTC35 35 watt single-ended 3000K warm white metal halide lamp for is recommended for long lamp life and colour stability for purple/red/yellow/green foliage trees. HQITC35K4 white lamp gives cooler lighting effect suitable for trees with blue/grey foliage such as some pines and cedars. The lamps can not be switched on and of in rapid succession, they need time to warm up and cool down.  ORDER LAMPS SEPARATELY.


Stirrup bracket for mounting on walls or an optional ground spike. 20mm IP68 gland provided for connection to mains supply. HO7-RNF 3 core rubber cable recommended for connection to armoured supply cable via a separate weatherproof junction box or underground joint kit (not supplied)

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

Environmental impact

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 light fittings works better as well as reducing the overall light pollution in the area. You must also be mindful of your neighbours and the effect your lighting can have on them and shining a high lumen output floodlight into their windows at night will cause them distress. Try to keep the light in a downward position and local to the items you want to illuminate and even if you want to illuminate tall trees it can be done in a sympathetic way by placing a ground buried or surface spike flood light directly under the trees to illuminate the canopy. These flood lights also have an anti glare shield available to reduce light pollution.
