Care must be taken when installing exterior lighting products especially those that
are ground mounted. All the products are sold and tested fit for purpose and the
IP rating is set according to the design and purpose of the luminaire, more details
on IP ratings can be found under design ideas section. The weakest point is generally
the installation of the product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground
buried lights or poor cable joints have been made which are not 100% water tight
and will allow for water penetration. There are a number of waterproof enclosures
available on this site along with heat shrink cable joint kits and resin gel packs
to fill the junction boxes to make a watertight enclosure. Where possible try and
keep all joints and transformers above ground, however if this is not possible there
are potted burial kits available.
Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is 2700 kelvin is classed as warm white and sympathetic to skin tones and warm brickwork. A kelvin of 6500k is in the blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warm colour spectrum.
