The DuoMarka elegant Brass recessed light mounts in the ground, in walls, steps or decking. Solid Brass creates a beautiful traditional appearance, blending in with surroundings.
This fitting is available in Stainless Steel and Copper too in both 12v and 240v along with the 240v version in Brass. Codes, LLDUOBR-240v, LLDUOCP-12P, LLDUOSS3-240V, LLDUOCP-240v and LLDUOSS-240v
Please note: This fitting must be installed with the mounting sleeve and additional rubber seal. If the sleeving and seal is not used, the Guarantee will be void. Not for use in areas prone to water-logging or flooding.
The DuoMarka Brass recessed light has two conical sections on the top of the fitting. The result is a 2 Way anti glare light effect, emitted through a clear lens. The domed surface is the ideal shape for decking, a patio or other areas where people walk. The threaded front bezel attaches to a Brass body by screwing together. There are no external screws or fixings which results in a neater overall finish. As a result of the threaded two part design, replacing the MR16 lamp is easy should it ever fail (LED recommended for longer life).
The robust black plastic sleeve supplied protects the Brass and assists with installation. The sleeving builds into the wall during construction, or retrofitted into a drilled out hole. The main part of the light then pushes into the tube, where it holds firmly in place, leaving only the streamline front dome on show.
Both brass and copper are extremely durable materials, with brass being a combination of copper and zinc, meaning neither can rust or corrode. Over time brass will subtly weather and naturally change to a darker colour which will blend in with the garden surroundings. Copper also naturally changes colour quite dramatically, often resulting in a brown or ‘verdigris’ effect, again to blend in with the outdoor surroundings. This is because copper reacts with atmospheric oxygen. Although some people may prefer a pristine, shiny copper finish, the oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of natural copper creating a traditional, ‘olde worlde’ appearance. If a new copper finish is preferred, a layer of lacquer can prevent / slow down the weathering process.
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. These Plug and Play fittings 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.
