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.
All recessed luminaries must have adequate drainage approx 20cm beneath each fitting to allow water to disperse, especially in clay based soil beds.
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).
