12 Volt Low Voltage - Simple & Safe
The Techmar garden lighting system is 12V low voltage lighting designed to guarantee your safety and that of your children and pets.
12 Volt (low voltage) is considered to be safe by European guide lines. Improved technology has now allowed 12 Volt lighting to provide sufficient light output to illuminate gardens and create ambient and atmospheric light effects.
The safety and simplicity of this lighting system makes it possible for anyone to install Techmar garden lighting themselves. The complete systems, from transformer to the fitting itself, is manufactured with watertight screw connectors so no tools will be necessary during installation. The assembly of the lamps themeselves may require a screwdriver. Garden Lights are suitable for installation in both existing and new-build or renovated gardens.
Plug & Play Garden Lighting
Plug & play means everything simply plugs together with no wiring. Simple to install and easy to illuminate. The Garden Lights product range offers you a series of lighting products that can be easily and safely installed by everybody, without the need or extra expense of an electrician.
Each light is supplied with either 1, 2 or 3 meters of cable with a watertight screw connector, which fits the connectors to the main cable. It does not get any easier! All cables and transformers are supplied with these easy to use, watertight screw connectors as well.
Plug & Play has many advantages over permanently fixed lighting as it allows for your garden lighting to be moved as your garden matures. There are different light options for some lights allowing to select brighter lamps or even coloured lamps. This gives you more scope for lighting different types of planting and features.
Garden Lighting LED Technology
The Techmar system was originally a mixture of LED and halogen lighting. As LED technology has progressed, the range (as you would expect) is now completely LED. Techmar have developed a range of optimised LEDs for all the lights, that allow their garden lighting system to go greater distances, whilst still maintaining full LED output. The clever technology is in the LED, which means Techmar are the only garden lighting manufacturer that can achieve distances of 60-80mtr from the transformer to the last light. Others struggle at around 30mtr
The big advantages of LED’s are their extremely low energy consumption and the long life expectancy. A LED is also shock proof, runs far cooler than conventional lamps but can still be changed as easily (with a few exceptions) Lighting fitted with our LED’s are extremely well suited for ambient and mood lighting applications.
As a general guide, below shows what a LED wattage is equivalent to in the older style halogen lighting.
1w LED -
2w LED -
3w LED -
4w LED -
5w LED -
Although lighting is measured in LUMENS and not wattage, but hopefully this gives you a rough idea.
