The Dasar 80 is a 316 marine grade stainless steel bezel luminaire designed for exterior ground use and is
We recommend that you use a GU10 LED lamp so the fitting is safe to touch and ECO friendly. There is a ground
potting pot included with the fitting. This fitting can take a maximum load of 2 tons for a concrete installation and can be used as a drive over light. There is also 30 degree of tilt angle available
and 90 degree rotation in this ground light.
LED lamps are available on this site and a selection suggested at the bottom of the page under 'Related Products' which will create
a medium beam of soft light. LED lamps have a long life, use minimal electricity
and are cool to touch, making them safe around children.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
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.
Please check the specification for dimensions before purchasing.
It is important that adequate drainage is allowed for when installing this type of product especially in clay based soil beds.
A NIC EIC electrical contractor should be used to ensure a 100% water tight installation. There are junction boxes, resin
kits, magic gel and IP68 inline connectors available from us to help make the perfect waterproof joint.
For a mains 220v - 240v supply you should use SWA ( steel wired armour ) rubber cable and NOT PVC. Each new garden supply should
also be on its own RCD.
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 Technical Help/Products 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 cabling and connection joints. All joints must be made 100% water tight and
this can be done using IP68 inline connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin mix or magic gel. 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, i.e. approximately 200mm of shingle or stones.
