DOMUS Black Louvred Aluminium Path Light IP44 900mm Tall 240v E27 Max Watts 100w - Surface Mounted Bollard - 2 Heights


This compact outdoor post light is available in both a classic matt black and a more contemporary matt white finish. Code numbers DOM900W and DOM600W. The white louvred path light option is one of the first available in the UK. It also comes with a 3 year guarantee as standard.

The Domus aluminium path light is a compact design, ideal for adding lighting to a pathway, entrance, patio or any outdoor area, including commercial properties. A vandal resistant, polycarbonate lens diffuses the light evenly around 360 degrees. Aluminium louvres surround the lens, adding both protection and character. The domed head and angled louvres also ensure the light is diffused downwards, combating light pollution and reducing glare.

The head has a large, internal space to accommodate larger, high output LED bulbs, including dimmable LEDs. You can use 6w LED bulb for optimum light output. As the lamp is visible, and if a filament style LED bulbs it really adds to the overall appearance of the bollard. Lower output LEDs will create a softer, more subtle light.

The Domus alluminium path light / bollard has a sturdy, thick, external mounting base. As a result mounting onto any surface if both easy and secure. Mount onto wood, slabs or brick, or use J-Bolts for mounting into wet concrete. Anchor bolts will also add stability. All screws are stainless steel, resulting in a completely rustproof and non-corrosive model. Small hexagonal socket screws hold on the domed head adding further security to this louvred bollard. All screws, with the exception of the socket screws, are painted to match the finish of the post light.

The Domus louvred path light includes surface mounting fixing screws, allen key and a 4 way waterproof junction box. Wire the fitting at the base of the bollard and conceal the junction box up inside the tube.


Bollard types and spacing

Bollard lights are available in a variety of styles, finish and lamp options. You need to think about how the light will be used for example a small garden pathway, the main driveway or to illuminate steps etc.  If you are within 20 km of the coast you should think about using the Wooden, Copper, Iron, Brass or Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel. Some bollards have built in LED modules which generally offer lower levels of light (lumens) than a standard LED GU10 lamp. Also, it is likely the LED module is a sealed unit and an integral part of the bollard which cannot be replaced if it fails meaning you will have to purchase a complete new bollard. There are bollards that use GU10 LED lamps and E27 base LED lamps. The spacing of bollards will depend on the type of bollard, louvre design, height and lamp output etc but a general rule of thumb would be no less than 3 meters and no more than 12 meters apart. The shorter distance would be for garden pathways and the longer distance for long driveways.

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.
