The satin silver 'Starlight' is a contemporary 12v hanging light made from anodised aluminium, ideal for outhouses, sheltered outdoor seating areas, pergolas and certain trees. Once dark, beautiful 360° lighting effects are created by the patterned body of this decorative 12v garden light. The 'Starlight' hanging light looks smart in daylight too, a fantastic example of ornamental landscape lighting. The satin silver anodised finish adds a modern touch to the light.

Choice of three colour finishes, Natural Copper, Anodised Satin Silver, Powder Coated Brown.

The 'Starlight' hanging down light can be used with an MR16 LED bulb which reduces running and maintenance costs due to its long lifespan and low wattage. Should the LED MR16 ever need to be replaced, this can be done simply by unscrewing the one screw at the top of the cylindrical body to remove then replace the bulb. Certain lighting design features make landscape lighting installation easier; in the case of this hanging garden light, The fixed hanging ring at the top of the light can be used with a length of chain if desired.

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 at fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and feel more alert. There’s nothing that can sour your opinion of an 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, 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 12v

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.   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.

All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
