Recommendations for reliable LED floodlights

Recommended Posts

Geoff1946

I'm looking for recommendations for reliable LED floodlights to use as feature lighting, that is illuminating walls. I think around 50 watts will be suitable. 

Access for maintenance is difficult and expensive so reliability is the over-riding requirement, much more important than initial cost.

Additionally this is a near coastal location with a salty atmosphere. (Powder coated alloy fittings last no time at all).

look for 5 year warranty on the drivers. Can't quite remember who it was, but I think KSR are now offering fittings suitable for salty atmospehre?

After a fair bit of internet trawling and asking around, I think we are going for these:

They are recommended by the electrician who is going to fit them and I like the idea of stainless steel fittings on a polycarbonate casing.

Fitzgerald are generally good gear (or used to be).

Fitzgerald were the only light fitting I would use on any project. Between us we won two Lighting Industry awards. I got on very well with Peter Fitzgerald, his son Tim and the Sales  director Tony Stuchberry. Alas due to personal circumstances and health issue we lost touch. I wasn't aware they had teamed up with powerlite. If the new regime has the same quality products and customer service then you won't go far wrong

Thanks for the positive feedback. I was dreading the opposite coming out after we made the choice.

I know we should buy British but personally would avoid anything made by a certain firm in Staffs. On the subject of LED floods, I have fitted several NVR (from neweys) of various wattages on and around the Port where I work with very little in the way of failures.
