Opaz, black, IP65, Max 7w LED mains 240v GU10- POLGU10


This robust little spike light is one of our most popular budget fittings and we have been selling them for several years. It can take up to a maximum 7w LED bulb and due to the shape of the cylinder the LED bulb can sit snuggly inside and project a greater beam of illumination than longer cylindrical spot lights. 

This type of light fitting can be used for a variety of illumination projects from pathway lighting, rockery lighting, up lighting small shrubs or trees and you can remove the spike so it can be mounted on a wall as a garden spot light.  Adjustable 90 degree tilt and 180 degree rotation and it is also IP65 water resistant.

Mains voltage spike light constructed in robust die cast aluminium, with a smart black finish. This adjustable spotlight is placed in the ground with the spike provided, and can be angled to give effective accent lighting in any outdoor environment.

As it is constructed from aluminium and not stainless steel it would not be suitable for coastal areas.

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 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 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 areas.
