Odyssey 304 Stainless Steel spike light, IP44, 7w max GU10 fitting (8mm screw thread for spike attachment)


The Odyssey spike has a short spike length and is designed to be used low to the ground for up lighting etc, if you require a taller spike light to shine down in to flower beds or illuminate steps etc then the smart spike product range would suit this requirement better.

The Oddysey range gives a stunning designer look at an affordable price. This premium range of solid stainless steel exterior lighting offers the best in design and luxury. Made from 304 stainless steel which is ideal for any property not too near a coastal environment. A short stainless steel spike is included with an adjustable knuckle joint head for rotation and tilt. The spike light can be used for a variety of situations from creating accent in a flower border to highlighting specific garden ornaments. Can also be used to up light small trees. Ideal as a feature light and for ground level pathway illumination. 

The Maximum wattage this fitting has been tested to is 7w LED due to heat sink issues with anything more powerful.  A typical 5w LED bulb can provide lumen output typical of a 40w Halogen bulb.  

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 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.      

Installation 


All exterior lighting products on our website have an IP rating which is explained further in our Technical Help/Products 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 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. 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
