4x8 Brick Paver Light
4 x 8 Brick Paver LightComplement landscape design by adding brick paver lighting. Illuminate exterior areas to improve safety and enhance atmospherics. These lights slide into any standard 4 x 8 inch brick paver space. Tan and gray colored lenses are available.
Learning more...from some of the manufacturer's helpful FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) from which we extracted and revised as follows:
Q: What is a brick paver light?
A: "A brick that lights up!"
Q: What if you want a kit for either yourself or someone you hire to install?
A: Call 1-800-679-8718 and we'll discuss and assemble whatever you need.
Q: How do you determine the number of lights that you can have on a transformer?
A: A transformer is sized to accommodate included lights. The wattage of the transformer must exceed the total wattage of the lights on the line.
For example, if your project includes 10 lights on a line, each with a 7 watt bulb, the transformer must have at least 70 watts of power (10 lights x 7 watts each).
Q: Can you use a stronger bulb in your light than the one that it came with?
A: Yes you can, if the total wattage of the lights on the line does not exceed the total wattage of the transformer.
Q: Can you use your lights with an existing low voltage system?
A: Yes, however, the transformer must be able to accommodate the total wattage of the lights connected to it.
Q: Can you drive over your paver lights?
A: These lights are made of high-strength polymer plastic and are engineered to withstand the weight and pressure of light car and light truck loads.
Q: The lights at the end of the line seem to be dimmer than those at the front. What’s happening?
A: Lights closest to the transformer will receive more power than those further down the line. If a cable run is too long or if too many lights are being powered by a single transformer, noticeable voltage drop may occur.
Voltage drop causes the lights farthest from the transformer to become dim. Voltage drop can be minimized by using a heavier gauge cable, a transformer with greater wattage, multiple transformers, shortening cable lengths, or reducing the total number of fixtures on a run.
Q: Can you retrofit Paver Lights into an existing hardscape installation?
A: If you have concrete or clay brick pavers that are not set in mortar, it’s easy to install Paver Lights. Most times it’s simply a matter picking up the border pavers, installing the power cable underneath, and then reinstating the pavers and lights.
Q: How will your paver lights perform in snow and ice?
A: Make sure that the fixtures are not installed above the surface so they don’t get caught by the edge of a shovel or plow. Apparently the lights themselves give off enough heat to melt any snow or ice that may accumulate.
Q: Can you run a plate compactor over your paver lights?
A: Light lenses can be scratched by tamping, if not protected. Please cover the lens with cardboard or a similar protective material to ensure that it does not become damaged during compaction.
Q: How should you handle your paver lights when cleaning and sealing your pavement?
A: Do not apply paver cleaners or sealers to the light lens to prevent discoloration.
Q: Does your power supply cable have to be installed in a hard conduit?
A: No. The low voltage cable can be buried directly in soil, sand, or stone.
Q: Can you install Paver Lights in a concrete patio, walkway, or driveway?
A: Yes you can, but we recommend using the 4 x 8 brick shape only. It might be helpful to notch the concrete to accommodate the fixture. Make sure there is free-draining stone under the light or drill holes in any concrete that may remain.
Q: What else?
A: Always follow safety precautions. Refer to product with manufacturer's instructions for more information.
