Techmar Low Voltage Garden Lights

Made in the Netherlands, Techmar Garden Lights are a 12 volt system which works in a way which the customer can choose which lights they want and then choose the size transformer and cables required.

Choosing the transformer may sound complicated, but it’s really not. Just add up the total wattage of your lights and choose a transformer with a wattage equal to or higher than this total.

For example: you choose 5 lights which use 6 watts each, total combined is 30 watts. The closest size transformer is the 22 watt but this will be too small so you would need the 60 watt transformer. It’s that simple.

Safety is a Big Factor

The fact that these lighting systems are only 12 volts means they are ideal if you have children, inquisitive pets or are generally safety concious. It also means that anyone can install them, there is no need for an electrician.

Many Different Types of Lights Available

There are different types of lights available and they are wall mounted, bollards and mini lamposts, spot lights, up lights and even underwater lights. You can have many of one type or a mixed set up, that is completely up to you and your budget.

Some of the lights come with halogen lamps and some with LEDs as standard but most are able to be upgraded to an LED or better version LED lamp and this will bring your wattage down too, meaning a more economical system.

LED lamps will cost you more but they draw less power, are usually brighter and also produce much less heat making them safer.

Plenty of Accessories

Techmar’s range of accessories for your lighting system also offer a great deal of options. They have a dark-light sensor which will turn the system on when it gets dark outside. A motion sensor for security, any movement can turn on your lights.

There is also a 3 way adapter which means you can split your cable from one to three, a great way to add more lights onto your transformer without having to buy lots of cables.

Impressive Realism

One of the most impressive of the Garden Lights range is the Titan Resin and Glass Bollard, this piece came into us and we were lucky enough to check it over and see how great the quality is. The resin acts as what looks like stone and it really does look like stone, the glass is of a very high quality too, giving a great effect to the light when switched on.
