Lediflex LED Strip Lights Kit – Warm White or Daylight White

DConnect Plug & Play – Supplied with 24v DC Constant Voltage LED Driver

The Lediflex LED Strip Lights are part of the DConnect Plug & Play Range. Flexible strip lights are made of silicone with PU sealed centre and are available in 2m and 5m reels. Each strip contains 60 LEDs per metre and each LED has a lumens output of 7-8 lumens. As a result, the strip lights emit up to 480 lumens per metre. In addition, the LED strip lights are completely waterproof with an IP Rating of IP68.

Create smaller lengths by cutting along the copper connector points marked with the scissors symbol (every 10cm). The IP Rating may be reduced when the strip is cut, therefore an end cap must be used. Secure in place over the open end with waterproof adhesive. Consequently, every strip will require a driver.

LED Strip Lights are perfect for adding safety and security to steps as well as creating subtle mood lighting around the edges of decking or even hot tubs. The source of the light can easily be hidden under ledges and overhangs because of their small size.

INSTALLATION

A ‘D-Connector’ plug and play female 2 pin adaptor is attached the input cables at each end of the reel which plug directly into the driver output cable.

The Lediflex kit includes a detachable 24v DC Constant Voltage LED Driver: 15 Watts for 2m and 30 Watts for 3m. A 3 pin UK plug attaches to 1.5m of fixed 3 core rubber waterproof input cable ensuring easy installation with no wiring. The 240v AC mains input then converts to 24v DC output via the 24v transformer. The output cable has a ‘D-Connector’ plug & play male 2 pin adaptor for easy installation. Ideally the driver should be installed above ground on a suitable post or wall via the easy to use surface mount clips.

Additional DConnect Extension Cables also available as an accessory to enable a more remote placing of the driver, further away from the fitting (1m, 3m or 5m).

Use the rubber mounting clips provided for surface mounting. Alternatively a durable and weatherproof aluminium profile is available to add further protection and secure mounting. The AliPro encases strip lights up to 1m but can be cut to a smaller size. The opal cover conceals the strip and diffuses light evenly, without glare. Removable mounting clips and an end cap for the open end are provided.

 

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.
