the style and function of your Stonelight® concrete bollard lights. From stepped bases and speakers
to time clocks, dimmers, and built-in transformers, you can make your Stonelight
architectural landscape lights a true original.
You may choose to add fluting or panels to any square Stonelight model. Fluting and panels can be added up to all four sides. Fluting and panels add a very stately elegance to your Stonelight concrete bollards, but will require an additional 10% charge.
Another choice in customizing your own Stonelight bollard lights is adding a stepped base. Match the Seville cap with a stepped base for a finished look top and bottom, or create a unique new combination. Available with all models and in the color of your choice, a stepped base provides a sturdier look for commercial installations and for residential applications such as surrounding a pool.
The low voltage fixture requires a #12-2 AWM
underground cable for runs up to 100 feet.
Cable should be installed 6" underground with PVC sleeving under all hardscape areas.
The line voltage fixture receives standard UF cable.
Speakers are an attractive option, particularly around pools and patios. These all-weather speakers feature titanium moving coil tweeters, woofers with 1" aluminum formers and carbon cones. Coaxial cable hook-up. Frequency: 60 to 15 kHz. Power: 65 watts.
A time clock can be plugged into a standard wall receptacle indoors. If you are installing it outside, you must use a Raintite time clock mounted at least 2" above the ground.
A dimmer may be installed indoors to control the amount of light emitted from your concrete bollard lights. No special wiring is needed, but installation by a licensed electrical contractor is recommended. Dimmer must be wired on the 110 volt side of the transformer only for low voltage installation.
Use of a 12 volt power supply transformer is needed to reduce 120 volt household electricity to a 12 volt system. Low voltage fixtures can be fitted with either a remote or a built-in transformer. A single remote transformer can operate multiple Stonelights.
Built-in Transformers - are used when Stonelights are installed too far apart to use a remote transformer or when a remote cannot be concealed adequately. Remote transformers cost an additional $45.00. Also, if line voltage wiring has already been installed, it may be easier and less expensive to use a built-in transformer. An access plate is provided at the back of each Stonelight.
Remote Raintite transformers are available between 50 and 2000 watts.
They should be mounted 12" or higher above ground level. The transformer will accommodate four runs up to 100 feet in any direction. Any number of lights can be installed on each of the four cables, providing the total wattage does not exceed 1500 watts.
Recommended wattage size of the transformer is 20% greater than the total wattage of all fixtures combined.
The Raintite transformer is available with a photo cell installed in the face of the transformer for automatic dusk-to-dawn lighting. This photo cell must be fitted so it's not hidden in foliage, or that lights do not shine on the photo cell.
