Professional Outdoor Lighting
Stunning effects can be achieved with outdoor lighting in a variety of ways and with some thought and careful consideration. A patio or deck area can be transformed by adding decking or walkover lights to create a wonderful atmosphere. The garden and other outside areas can be highlighted using path lights or spotlights to pick out features or plants. The use of LED lighting to illuminate and enhance areas of your garden always works well and using motion sensor lighting to increase the security of your outdoor spaces is an ideal solution. Not to mention solar powered lights which harness the power of the sun which means you get illumination for free.

Frequently Asked Questions About Outdoor Lighting
What are LEDs?
An LED is a semiconductor device that emits a visible light of a certain colour when an electrical charge is applied. They provide a very low heat source with a very long lamp life – around 50,000 hours.
What defines the colour of the chip?
Different material composition of LED Chip materials allow for a single colour from a huge spectrum of colours.
Can an LED chip emit white light?
How do we get white light for lighting?
LED Chip manufacturers combine either a blue or UV emitting LED with a yellow phosphor.
They can be used to introduce accents of colour or are ideal in situations where no heat is a requirement such as uplighters and floor washers where little fingers could be burnt. Linear versions can now be used for shelf lighting such as the Contour. They are also more energy efficient than standard halogen fittings which help in our efforts to be greener consumers.
What are dimming LEDs?
LED’s can be easily dimmed but require slightly different equipment and wiring. Most LED’s are 0-10v, this dimming requires a 0-10v dimmer module (which can fit in the JCL wall plates and dimmer plates) rather than a regular dimmer. Secondly 0-10v dimming requires a pair of cable to be connected to the dimmer module.
Some LED drivers allow for the product to be dimmed on regular dimmers, however compatibility with the particular module needs to be checked.
A DALI dimmer is the recommended dimmer for best performance.
Are Outdoor Lights Waterproof?
All light fixtures are suitable for outdoor use. Fixtures with LED light sources are waterproof (also refer to the IP values for our products) but are not designed to remain under water permanently. Use our underwater spotlight for this instead.
How Do I Install a Ground Light?
For instructions, watch the following videos:
- connecting a 22 mm ground light
- connecting a 60 mm ground light
For specific installation instructions, always refer to the manual and installation recommendations for the product.
Is Outdoor Lighting Resistant to Snow and Frost?
Rest assured that you can leave our fixtures outdoors in freezing or snowy weather. Extreme garden conditions have been considered during the design.
