Triple Function PIR Solar Light – Wall or Post Mounted

The Freeway 5 is a versatile, high output LED PIR solar light designed to provide safety and security at night. The two brackets supplied enable easy mounting onto a wall or post, with both 16cm and 26cm lengths supplied. The solar powered down light emits a wide spread of light along pathways with a high 1000 lumens output in daylight white. As well as the high output level, it also benefits from multiple functions:

  1. Full Brightness (Constant on) – Illumination at full brightness from dusk, then turns off after approx 5-6 hours
  2. Low Powered light PIR Mode – 30% constant light from dusk, increases to full brightness for approx. 30 seconds when PIR triggered by movement
  3. Standard PIR Mode – Light remains off until PIR is triggered by movement, then full brightness for approx. 30 seconds
  4. Override – OFF

As a result of the large solar panel, the internal lithium ion battery retains high charge levels. With sufficient sunshine, the long life LEDs of the Freeway Solar Light will continue to illuminate throughout the night, 365 days per year. Even in the dullest of weather, our solar lights will still illuminate, although they may not last the entire night cycle, which in many cases is not a necessity. The high quality, modern technology of the Pro Solar Range really shine above cheaper alternatives. Installations costs are minimal with no need for cabling to be laid, with ongoing savings. Consequently, solar is the perfect solution for lighting areas where cable installation is difficult or not possible. The Freeway 5 PIR Solar Light is almost maintenance free with no running cost. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries charge from natural energy which is much more environmentally friendly and have a lifespan of up to 8 years.

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.
