This solid brass Slatlite Steplight with bronze finish is a smart 12v surface mount garden light ideal for lighting stepped areas, either mounted on walls next to steps, or on the steps themselves. The louvered step light design creates a more subtle light than a full spotlight, shining the light downwards at an angle. A mirrored reflector and frosted glass lens inside diffuse the light outwards evenly and without glare.
The Slatlite is both robust and stylish, with a high IP rating of IP54, and has 3 external screws; to firmly secure the front to the back. This low voltage step light has a G4 fitting. An LED G4 capsule is recommended, and is available as an optional extra. The bright 12 volt LED G4 in cool white, or warm white which can be purchased separately, saves more energy and has a much longer life span than a standard halogen G4. G4 LED bulbs will work from a normal 12v A/C transformer so there is no need to buy a special LED “Driver”.
The Slatlite forms part of the VERSA Plug & Play Range. For ease of installation, a 2 pin adaptor plugs directly into a VERSA Transformer, or any Versa connectors, meaning no wiring is required. If the adaptor is not required then this can simply be cut off and the wire stripped to create a normal connection via a junction box. VERSA Plug & Play connectors are also compatible with other plug and play systems such as Techmar.
A guide to lighting steps
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. Care must be taken with the cable runs and not to install transformers more than 30 metres away from the furthest fitting to avoid any voltage drop. Cabling should be 2 core Rubber HO5RN-F or HO7RN-F and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation. Always check the correct type of transformer you need for your fittings. We recommend wiring in parallel with Toroidal AC and LED DC drivers. But when using Milliamp mA LED drivers, they should always be wired in series. Plug and Play kits are simply a case of daisy chaining the fittings via plug and play junction boxes, connectors and extension cables using a 2-pin plug arrangement. These Plug and Play fittings should only be used for small domestic projects due to voltage drop over 5 metres.
