All outdoor lighting should be installed by a certified PART P, NIC EIC electrical contractor to ensure a safe and water tight installation.
Back plate screws to wall: body mounts onto the back plate with discrete allen key grub screws at the side of the body for screw less frontal appearance. Body can be rotated on back plate before fully tightening grub screws to ensure fitting is installed level, or at any other angle required. Grommeted rear cable entry. Silicon seal back plate fixings.
Water ingress is the enemy for outdoor lighting and the products supplied are only as good as the installation as the weakest point is always cable joints. All joints must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using IP68 inline connectors, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or gel mix.
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.
Choosing the right lamp is a combination of 3 main factors, Lumen's, Kelvins and efficiency. Efficiency matters because you want the maximum light output possible ( Lumen's ) from the minimum amounts of watts consumed. The latest LED lamps will reduce energy bills with no loss of light output and helps the environment too.
