DECIMAX 240V RECESSED LIGHT NATURAL COPPER
The ‘Decimax’ is a circular 240v Natural Copper deck light / recessed light with a 100mm front bezel. The face plate is durable
solid Natural Copper that will darken and blend naturally. Copper blends well with outdoor surroundings, eventually forming
a Verdigris finish. 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.
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS incandescent bulb
in the home 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.
Installation 220 – 240v
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 an
IP rating 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. The weakest point is always cable joints. All joints must be made 100% watertight
and this can be done using IP68 cable connectors and/or waterproof junction boxes which are then
filled with a re-enterable liquid gel mix. 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. If possible, use ground surface
spike lights rather than a buried light. Mains 240v cable will have less joints than a low
voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs. Cabling should be Rubber Butyl and
not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation.
All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by
an electrician with Part P certification. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes
available on this web site.
Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Always put outdoor lighting on it's own RCD. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation.
