Brick Downunder , Mains 240v,  E14, silver grey, IP44 - 220 - 240v 

The Brick Downunder is a recessed modern contemporary styled mains 240v low level wall light. This outdoor recessed low level wall light can be used around low level perimeter walls, staircases or as a step light. Easy to install  mains 240v supply. The light fitting is designed to throw the light down and forward and with the main lamp source set high in the fitting there is no glare created. LED E14 light bulbs have a long life span and very ECO friendly due to their low running and maintenance cost's. You can use warm white or cool white colour temperatures in LED bulbs. We recommend placing the fittings every third stair tread  and about 300mm above the tread. There is a mounting pot included with the light fitting that can be cut in to the wall. Not suitable for coastal areas.

A guide to lighting steps


Lamp colour ( Kelvins )


The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS incandescent bulb in the home 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.

Installation 220 – 240v

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.  Mains 240v cable will have less joints than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs. Cabling should be Rubber Butyl and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation.

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.

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.
