The Dasar Exact GU10 fitting can be mounted flush with the surface rather than the more traditional
ones that have a raised bevelled edge and it is one of our most popular selling buried up lights. It has a 316 marine grade steel bezel and is
IP67. The code for the round bezel version is 228430.
It can be used with a GU10 LED lamp so the fitting is safe to touch and ECO friendly. There
is a ground potting sleeve 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.
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 resin kits and heat shrink kits available from us to help make the perfect
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 heat shrink kits, 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.
