Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting

Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting & Wiring Diagram

Low voltage outdoor lighting is an ideal and safe way to illuminate your surroundings. Halogen lamps give a white crisp light with good colour rendition and excellent lamp life up to 5000 hours.

There is a choice of six lamp wattages (MR16) and beam angles as (shown below). This allows a greater range of effects to be produced by the luminaire. In most circumstances 20 watt lamps generate the desired effect in the garden or building highlighting, etc. A luminaire that uses a 20 watt lamp has three major advantages:

1. It will operate at a lower and safer temperature, and will not burn you.

2. The luminaire will use 60% less energy and therefore cost less to operate.

3. The luminaire will require less maintenance and lamp holders will last much longer.


A quality installation is imperative for the longevity of your low voltage outdoor lighting. We strongly recommend that time is taken when selecting an installer with experience in low voltage outdoor lighting systems.

Ensure the instructions supplied with each luminaire and transformer are followed meticulously to avoid failure. Halogen lamps generate significant heat and should be positioned carefully to avoid injury.
