The Wetsy is a sturdy mains 220v - 240v recessed up-light which can withstand up to 1 ton weight. It has an aluminium body but a 316 Stainless Steel bezel measuring 13.2cm diameter. The energy consumption from the integral Philips LED is 6.3w. The anticipated life of the LED module is 30,000 hours. This module can be replaced but only by the manufacturer (SLV) or a service technician authorised by them. The colour temperature of the LED is 3000k which is a warm white and it gives out 300 lumens which is approximately that of a standard 35w incandescent bulb and has a 38 degree beam angle built into the reflector. It is an IP67 rated fitting.
The dimensions are 13.2cm in diameter for the bezel. Depth of 10cm and a cut out of 12.6cm. The fitting is housed in a mounting pot for easy assembly.
The fitting also comes in a round bezel option code 230170.
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS incandescent bulb in the home 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.
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. Mains 240v cable will have less joints than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs. Cabling should be Rubber Butyl and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation.
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.
Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation.
