See the pro's & con's of low voltage garden lighting
For a Safe System it needs to be 12-volt.
Techmar have been successfully designing and manufacturing 12 volt plug and play garden lighting for over 20 years. They are the market leaders in this field and offer the widest range of lights, switches and cabling options. In mainland Europe it is the norm to install 12 volt lighting in your front or rear gardens. They cannot understand why we use 240v mains systems, which are governed by very stringent electrical regulations to keep everyone safe. A 240v system needs to be installed by a qualified electrician that will have to provide a test certificate on completion of the lighting project. 12 volt systems do not carry the same regulations as they start life as safe and are designed to be an easy DIY install, just plug & play. Techmar are a forward thinking company and are proud to say they lead the market in 12v garden lighting, have the largest range and best products.
The Pro's of using 12 volt garden lighting over 240v mains system
You can install it! No need for an electrician as it does not carry any regulations to install due to it already being safe for people and animals.
It is plug & play. Simply plugs together to form a network of cables that allow you to plug lights into.
No nuisance tripping that is always a problem with 240v systems.
Totally flexible. Your garden will change and evolve over time so you should have a lighting system that can be easily changed. Just unplug a light and move it, simple.
3 year warranty on all products for manufacturing defects, this includes all leds.
Replaceable leds on 99% of the range (Most other 12 volt systems don't even have this). Don't throw the light away and start again, just replace the led. We carry a full range of spares
12 volt leds give the same light levels as 240v versions.
Totally safe for humans and animals. Accidentally damage a cable? Fine, easily repaired and no one hurt.
