The light is located by an "O" ring on the body into a sleeve tube so that no external screw fixings are visible. It may also be used as a deck light. The stainless steel single piece body Improves the IP rating properties of this product and is more suited to in-ground environments; proving more water resistant than its aluminium cousin in damp locations. Always allow for 20cm of shingle for drainage.
Not for use in areas prone to water-logging or flooding
Will take the weight of a standard vehicle but NOT SUITABLE FOR AREAS WITH HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES.
|Colour/Finish:||Smart 316 grade stainless steel is a popular choice for modern garden settings|
Top plate is attached to tubular single piece 316 stainless steel body which unscrews into 2 halves without the need for tools for easy lamp changing. 2m cable via rear entry cable
|Lamp Type:||GU10 LED lamps|
The plastic sleeve is built into the wall during construction: the light pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in place by an o-ring, leaving a front plate with no visible fixing screws.Suitable drainage should be provided below each fitting to prevent water logging. Waymarkers should not be installed in ground subject to water logging, an IP68 light such as a Neptune Recessed light should be considered.
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
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.
Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. All outdoor lighting should be on it's own RCD circuit. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation.
