TIVOLA - Astro Lighting

This is a very smart little step light, shown in textured black but also comes in antique brass and textured grey.

This fitting needs a driver (use the Astro Lighting recommended one) and has the benefit of coming with a back box.

Suitable for exterior and spas but not recommended for areas within 5 miles of the sea.

GL019 Eyelid - Collingwood Lighting

This little hooded LED step light is about as robust as you’ll get. Made of solid stainless steel it is rated to IP68 and gives out 36 lumens when run at 350mA and 63 lumens when run at 700mA. 

You can specify what colour temperature you require but I always go for the warmer colour of 2700K.

Requires a remote driver.

ARRAN ROUND - Astro Lighting

This step light is made of solid brass and works brilliantly as a step light or low level corridor lighting. I use it inside as well as outside as it works well in classical properties.

The brass will tarnish naturally over time unless you want to keep it polished.

Requires a driver (recommend using Astro Lighting 700mA driver)

It will stand up to harsh conditions as it’s IP65 rated and the metal finish will just age gracefully.

An excellent price
