Stellus Modena - 240v - Stainless Steel IP44 E27 - Lantern - Down Light - Wall Light

  

The Modena outdoor wall light is an elegant downlight made from stainless steel with a thick, clear, acrylic glass diffuser that surrounds the bulb. The diffuser adds protection to the bulb but ensures maximum light output evenly over 360 degrees.

New age filament LED bulbs really add to the character of this down light, which are available in a number of wattages, shapes and colour temperatures. With the Modena functioning as a LED wall light minimal power is consumed, reducing energy bills, and the bulb will also last much longer than incandescent equivalents.

Stainless steel garden lights should remain rust free throughout their lifetime, although should still be cleaned periodically to ensure top quality is maintained.



Light output ( Lumens )

The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens work in conjunction with kelvins and should not be taken in isolation of each other. For example if you had a very warm white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumens and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens the cooler lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast. So if you shine a white 6,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 Kelvin lamp onto a white wall the warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused on. So when choosing a lamp always take into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins (colour ),  Lumens ( brightness) and contrast  (colour of area).


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.
