The E4332 Elipta Compact down light is a 240v wall or post-mount model for fixed down lighting and grazing. 240v models utilise GU10 LED lamps which means there is no need for a bulky transformer base and they fit mains wiring points on house walls and pillars. It has a flush lens which sheds water and dirt and is easy to clean. positions higher up on the house wall are an ideal spot for wall washing onto patio areas below. powder-coated aluminium is a traditional recessive colour choice for garden settings.
A variety of LED GU10 lamps to create the effect you require are available and can be used with the very latest LED lamps to help reduce maintenance costs and energy bills.
Please ensure that you use a PART P, NIC EIC electrical contractor to install your exterior lighting.
Care must be taken when installing exterior lighting products especially those that are ground mounted. All the products are sold and tested fit for purpose and the IP rating is set according to the design and purpose of the luminaire, more details on IP ratings can be found under design ideas section. The weakest point is generally the installation of the product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground buried lights or poor cable joints have been made which are not 100% water tight and will allow for water penetration. There are a number of waterproof enclosures available on this site along with heat shrink cable joint kits and resin gel packs to fill the junction boxes to make a watertight enclosure. Where possible try and keep all joints and transformers above ground, however if this is not possible there are potted burial kits available. Copper grease should also be used on screws and nuts to stop them binding and ease removal at a later date when a lamp change is required.
Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is 2,700 kelvin
is classed as warm white and sympathetic to skin tones and warm colours like red
brickwork or yellows etc. A lamp with a kelvin rating of kelvin of 6,500k is in the
blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and cooler colour
brick work and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum.
Plants and shrubs work better with a warm spectrum from 2,700k up to 4,000k max.
