Domo, path spreadlight, satin chrome plated copper, 12v, IP56


( REQUIRES TRANSFORMER )



Elipta Domo spreadlights provide a wide soft pool of light for the illumination of paths or steps and around the terrace, drive and lawn. Brushed chrome finish is an alternative to copper spreadlights for more modern garden settings. These 12v spreadlights hide the light source under the shade for low glare lighting, providing a pool of light about 4m in diameter.  A frosted glass dome protects the lamp from irrigation spray, diffuses the light from the halogen lamp and reduces lamp glare to improve visual comfort in sloping sites. The shade and dome assembly is easily removed and replaced with a screw action, so tools are not required for changing the lamp.

Construction

High-grade spun copper shade and tubular copper stem; Pressure die-cast brass body and brass fixings; Heat resistant, frosted glass dome; Finned polycarbonate ground spike

Lamp type

G4 LED capsule lamp. Order lamp separately to suit application.CAPLED3WWN is recommended for most applications: 

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

Connect fitted 1.5m cable to low voltage supply cable by crimped heat shrink joint - order cable joint kit T9962 separately. Connect into a cable run supplying several fittings with a T9963 cable splice kit, which is also used for all connections where 4mm low voltage cable is used for longer cable runs. 

Installation 12v

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.  Care must be taken with the cable runs and not to install transformers more than 30 metres away from the furthest fitting to avoid any voltage drop. Cabling should be 2 core Rubber HO5RN-F or HO7RN-F and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation. Always check the correct type of transformer you need for your fittings. We recommend wiring in parallel with Toroidal AC and LED DC drivers. But when using Milliamp mA LED drivers, they should always be wired in series. Plug and Play kits are simply a case of daisy chaining the fittings via plug and play junction boxes, connectors and extension cables using a 2-pin plug arrangement. If you use Plug and Play fittings they should only be used for small domestic projects due to voltage drop over 5 metres.

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.
