DECIMAX 12V PLUG & PLAY RECESSED LIGHT SOLID NATURAL BRASS


The ‘Decimax’ is a circular 12v plug & play recessed light with a 100mm front bezel. The face plate is durable solid Natural Brass with a polished ‘gold’ finish. This stunning finish will shine brightly at first and then will darken and blend naturally with outdoor surroundings. A hard protective sleeving adds durability to the fitting, protecting the lower section for mounting into brick (driveway or wall), decking or the ground. There is also approx. 5m of cable included for ease of installation.

For ease of installation, a 2 pin adaptor plugs directly into a plug and play Transformer, or suitable connectors, meaning no wiring. The adaptor can be simply cut off  to create a normal  wire connection via a junction box.

Not for use in areas prone to flooding

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. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.

                                                   

Installation


All recessed luminaries must have adequate drainage approx 20cm beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds. All cable joints must be 100% watertight and there are a number or waterproof transformer boxes and heat shrink cable joint kits on our web site to choose from. We would advise that all connections and transformer be kept above ground where possible as the weakest link in any exterior garden electrical installation is joining cables together. Please ensure that your electrician is NIC EIC certified and has done exterior lighting installations before. Also ensure that all rubber gaskets are clean and dry before screwing down the front glass and bezel for a water tight seal otherwise any dirt or grid that gets under the rubber seal can cause capillary action (moisture ingress).
