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.
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.

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.
