Dasar 80 Square  GU10, ground recessed, 316 stainless steel cover, 30 degree tilt, IP67 2 ton driveover



The Dasar 80 GU10 is one of our most popular fittings and an ideal fitting for driveways and up lighting shrubs and small trees. This fitting can be mounted flush with the surface rather than the more traditional ones that have a raised bevel edge.

 Although It can be used with a standard GU10 mains lamp to a maximum of 35w preferably you could use a GU10 LED lamp so the fitting is safe to touch and ECO friendly. There is a ground mounting pot included with the fitting. This fitting can take a maximum load of 2 tons and can be used as a drive over light. There is also 30 degree of tilt angle available in this ground light. 90 degree horizontal rotation. 

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.  



Installation 



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 resin kits, magic gel and heat shrink kits available from us to help make the perfect waterproof joint.

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 cable joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 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. Approximately 200mm of drainage.  Mains 240v cable will have less joints than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.
