Cubik - 12v - Plug & Play 304 Stainless Steel MR16 IP67 Fixed Recessed Spot 100mm Or 120mm Bezel - Clear Or Frosted Lens

 

The 12v 'Cubik' is a large square stainless steel ( 5mm thick) topped recessed light with a protective hard ABS sleeve. The bulb is housed in a diecast aluminium casing. It is ideal for mounting in the ground to add an edging to areas of the garden, patio or driveway, whether being mounted into block paving, decking or any other materials. The versatile Cubik can also be used as a recessed wall light, or as a step light. The smooth, stainless steel finish creates a modern and streamline look which is highly durable . (Rated IP67).

Not for use in areas prone to waterlogging or flooding


The use of a LED MR16 bulb is recommended which saves energy, lasts at least 10 times longer and therefore requires less maintenance than a Halogen MR16..


Installation 12v

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.  Care must be taken with the cable runs and not to install transformers more than 30 metres away from the furthest fitting to avoid any voltage drop. Cabling should be 2 core Rubber HO5RN-F or HO7RN-F and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation. Always check the correct type of transformer you need for your fittings. We recommend wiring in parallel with Toroidal AC and LED DC drivers. But when using Milliamp mA LED drivers, they should always be wired in series. Plug and Play kits are simply a case of daisy chaining the fittings via plug and play junction boxes, connectors and extension cables using a 2-pin plug arrangement. These Plug and Play fittings should only be used for small domestic projects due to voltage drop over 5 metres.

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.
