Helia 75cm 8W COB Path light with PIR - 3000k LED module - 450 lm - Anthracite finish IP55 220 - 240v

The Helia is a modern style path light bollard in Aluminium and Glass with an Anthracite finish.  It stands 75cm tall and has an integral 8w COB LED module inside. The colour temperature is 3000k and the lumen output is 450 Lumens.  The LED Module should last for approximately 30000 hours. The beam angle of the head is 38° and the tilt from the head is 90° and rotation range is 360°. The bollard is rated at IP55. 

The integral LED is replaceable but only by the manufacturer or a service technician authorised by them. 

The base plate is 16cm in length, 9cm in width. 

This fitting has the beauty of having an integrated infrared sensor (PIR). 

The settings of the sensor enable you to control when the trigger of light comes on and this can be in day mode which reacts to the surrounding light of 3 - 1000 lux.  or in night mode which is the preferred and most common use of PIR settings for a fitting and can be set to a lux level of 1 - 3.  The timer can be set from a minimum of 8 seconds to a maximum of 12 minutes.  Once set the light fitting will illuminate when the PIR is triggered by the presence of someone approaching the fitting and will continue to illuminate for the required time set but all the time there is a presence it will continue to trigger the light.

There is also the Helia without PIR code 1002198 and twin head version code 1002200.  They do not come with PIR functionality.


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.
