This long selling and yet still modern and contemporary garden wall lantern styled wall light in stainless steel and opal diffuser uses E27 base LED lamps (order separately).
The Big nails stands off the wall with the central mounted wall bracket. It has a frosted glass tubular diffuser to scatter a soft light which would grace any entrance. The soft ambient light created by the diffused light would also suit a seated or eating area on the patio. Ideal for the side of properties to illuminate walkways etc.
The wall light can also be complemented by the Big nails bollard lights for pathways and entrance driveways code 229162. This gives the landscape gardener a theme to work to and a professional look to the lighting.
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 6,000 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 skin tones and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the
scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used in offices or a fast
food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. There’s
nothing that can sour your opinion of an LED lamp like
buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa. 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. The style of E27 bulb are tubular. See related product below.
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 a 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 and transformer joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin 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. Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.
