2 Way Copper Step Light

The DuoMarka Copper Step Light has two conical sections on one side of the top of the fitting. As a result, this creates 180º diffusion of light through a clear lens, without glare. It is suitable for illuminating steps and outlining other areas in the garden. Due to it’s versatile design, it can be mounted in the ground, walls or decking. The bezel and body are high quality, natural copper. It has a traditional appearance and blends in with natural surroundings.

The slightly domed surface is the ideal shape for mounting on decking, a patio or any other areas, ideal when a walk over facility is required. The threaded front copper bezel attaches to a copper body. This screws together with no external screws or fixings for a neater overall finish. In addition, no tools are required to change the MR16 lamp (LED recommended).

The robust black plastic sleeve is supplied to protect the copper and assist with installation. It is important that the sleeving must be built into the wall during construction or retrofitted into a drilled out hole. Following this, the copper step light pushes into the sleeving where it is held firmly in place, leaving only the streamline front bezel on show.

Important Information

This fitting must be installed with the mounting sleeve and additional rubber seal. The Guarantee will be void if the sleeving and seal is not used. Not for use in areas prone to water-logging or flooding.

As with most purchases, it is important that items are maintained correctly after installation. This is especially important for outdoor lighting which can be affected by the outdoor environment, especially in harsher areas such as coastal areas. By not following the aftercare instructions, which are always included with the relevant product, this may void any guarantees or warranties.

TEAK LIGHTS

Lumena offer a number of Teak bollards and post lights in a range of sizes. Teak wood is a part of the ‘Tectona Grandis’ hardwood species and is highly durable, producing a natural oil which helps protect from outdoor conditions. As Teak is subject to outdoor weather conditions, it starts to age and develop a duller, soft, grey appearance. This elegant, lightweight wood is ideal for both domestic and commercial use and is very easy to maintain.

To add a further protective coating from weather conditions, teak sealer is highly recommended. Lumena always apply at least one coat of Teak sealer prior to dispatch but this should also be applied periodically to help protect and freshen up the path lights.

 

CARE OF STAINLESS STEEL – TIPS

Contrary to popular belief, Stainless steel needs looking after; especially in exposed and coastal areas. If not cleaning on a regular basis, the acid that is ever present in the air ( and salt in coastal areas) will affect the surface causing pitting and even rust like staining (known as ‘Tea staining’ ) to appear.

To keep your lights looking good, simply wipe clean the outside with a damp cloth and then dry once a month, (more frequently in coastal areas). Specialist stainless steel cleaning products can be used (We recommend and stock ‘Kilrock stainless steel cleaner’) but never use an ABRASIVE cleaner. In extreme conditions we recommend applying 2 coats of Clear lacquer to protect the steel surface. (We recommend and stock ‘Simoniz’ clear lacquer).

 

COPPER & BRASS

Both brass and copper are extremely durable materials, with brass being a combination of copper and zinc, meaning neither can rust or corrode. Over time brass will subtly weather and naturally change to a darker colour which will blend in with the garden surroundings. Copper also naturally changes colour quite dramatically, often resulting in a brown or ‘verdigris’ effect, again to blend in with the outdoor surroundings. This is because copper reacts with atmospheric oxygen. Although some people may prefer a pristine, shiny copper finish, the oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of natural copper creating a traditional, ‘olde worlde’ appearance. If a new copper finish is preferred, a layer of lacquer can prevent / slow down the weathering process.

 

240v IN-GROUND LIGHTS & SPIKE LIGHTS

240v fittings can be affected by damp conditions, typically when located outdoors. When a fitting is located outside in the cold air combined with the heat produced by the lamp inside, it is inevitible that condensation will occur, just as it does on bedroom windows in the home. If too much condensation is produced, this could result in the fitting tripping, especially in these types of fittings where a drainage hole is not possible. To combat this, Lumena include silica gel with all 240v in-ground lights and spike light to soak up any excess moisture – these should not be removed but replaced periodically and fittings checked. If any water is sitting in the fitting, this should be tipped out and the fitting safely dried out. Condensation can be more prominent when the fitting has been opened on a damp day, as the damp air will then be trapped inside when re-sealed. Therefore it is recommended that any maintenance, including changing bulbs, is performed on a dry day. An additional practice put in place by Lumena is to apply Lithium Grease to the bulb holder / bulb which acts as an additional seal to prevent tripping. Although this prevents tripping, the fittings will still need to be checked and dried out should water sit inside the fitting. For extra protection, fitting can also be filled with Wiska Gel (electrical insulation).

It is important that anybody installing or carrying out maintenance on Lumena Products, including bulb changes, refer to the instruction manual prior to commencing work. Lumena Lights ensure instructions available online are completely up to date and accurate.
