Case Study

The owners of a private residential property were looking for a new wall light to be installed on their property. The specification for the wall light had several manufacturing and performance requirements that it must meet for it to be selected for installation on the exterior of the building. It had to be reliable, suitably powerful for the location, have excellent build-quality, provide value for money and perhaps most importantly, be aesthetically pleasing.

As with all homes now being refurbished, the external lighting is very much a part of the whole lighting solution in that it allows the exterior to form a valuable part of the overall space, allowing the homeowners the opportunity to extend the usage of the external garden into the evening as well as providing both safe access around the property and to offer the benefits of security.  

For any individual product to tick every box can be a tall order in sourcing a suitable wall light which meets each and every requirement was difficult to achieve, however the customer eventually found Ansell’s Duo Midi Bi-directional wall light. Upon further inspection, the Duo Midi looked fantastic and certainly had the technical features to match.

Eventually, the homeowners decided to have installed, the Ansell wall light to bring some much-needed illumination and to enhance the appearance of the property.

The minimalistic Duo Midi offers bi-directional illumination and has a die-cast aluminium construction with graphite paint finish. Powered by an internal non-dimmable Philips LED Driver, it features either a 19W or 42W LED light source option, which allows the 19W variant to exceed the performance of a 70W CDM-T and the 42W to exceed the performance of a 150W CDM-T.

Sealed to IP65, with an IK Rating of IK08 and capable of operating across a range of temperatures, the fitting offers a robust solution for this and other applications. The illumination pattern from the wall light has a 34° beam angle both downward and upward allowing illumination at floor level for safe access whilst providing a symmetric light pattern on the wall of the fitting’s installation. The fitting comes with a 2 Year warranty and a LED lifespan of L70 at 50,000 hours.  

The homeowners were incredibly pleased with both the wall light and the effect provided.  The Duo Midi Bi-directional wall light comes with the reliability, value for money and quality you can always expect from purchasing an Ansell Lighting product. Furthermore, its sleek design means it does not look out of place in any garden.
