Myra - 240v - Silver Grey Powder Coated Aluminium GU10 IP55 Up/Down Wall Light


The Myra wall mounted up and down light is one of our most popular products due to its high quality finish. This unique design feature adds flexibility to the light fitting and create different lighting effects. The Myra uses a mains 240v GU10 lamp at the top and bottom of the luminaire to throw light both up and down. Different lamp beam angles and colours can be used to create your own unique lighting effect. This product is good for illuminating tall fa├žades of a property and the lower walkway path. Available in two colour options. Easy screw front bezel for easy lamp replacement and cleaning of the fitting.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

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 6,000 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 skin tones and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour  would be used in offices or a fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. There’s nothing that can sour your opinion of a LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa. When you buy a new, LED energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.

Installation  


All exterior lighting should be installed by a PART P,  NIC EIC certified electrical contractor to ensure a safe and 100% dry cable joint installation.

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 a IP rating which is explained further in our design ideas section but in simple terms the IP rating is 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 as the weakest point is always cable and transformer joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin 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 joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.
