Techmar Low Voltage Lighting

This simple 'plug and play' 12 volt system is very safe for anyone to set up successfully and includes wall mounted lights, bollards, up lights and spotlights. A wide variety of styles that will light your path, highlight features, illuminate decking and even ponds.

Impressively Versatile

Wall mounted lights are just what you need for lighting doorways and paths at the side of a house. There are classic lanterns and also more modern styles such as the aluminium 'Olympia' that features 16 LEDs.

Post lights or bollards can perfectly line a path, making it both more attractive and safe. Manufactured from stainless steel, aluminium or resin and glass, choose one that most ideally suits your landscape and location.

Uplights can add another dimension to decking, block paving and other surfaces. They offer illumination and decoration when built into the surface, you'll be walking on light. 

Spotlights can have a dramatic effect on the landscape, lighting up features including ornaments, plants and trees. There are halogen and LED versions that have the capacity to transform the appearance of any outdoor space.

Underwater Lights are also available enlivening a pond and making it a really striking feature after dark when of course it usually can't be seen.

What Transformer?

Once you have chosen your lights, add up their wattage and this will determine what transformer is required - 22, 60 or 150 watts.

Bear in mind that you may extend the system in the future, so it may be advisable to choose a transformer larger than is currently required. 

Cables and Connectors

Select the correct cable and connectors according to the lights, their location and transformer you have chosen. Cables can be buried, this is preferable since they will be out of sight and protected from garden pests.

Low Voltage lights offer you an extremely easy and economical way to bring your garden to life after the sun goes down. See all Techmar Low Voltage Lighting on Gardensite.
