All outdoor lighting should be installed by a certified PART P, NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and water tight installation.
The back plate screws to the wal and the body mounts onto the back plate with a discrete allen key grub screws at the side of the body for screwless frontal appearance. The body can be rotated on back plate before fully tightening grub screws to ensure the fitting is installed level, or at any other angle required. Grommeted rear cable entry. Silicon seal back plate fixings.
All exterior lighting
products on our web site 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 or the use of the wrong mains cabling. Only user Rubber SWA and not PVC. All joints must be made
100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors and waterproof junction
boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix.
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.
