Is cutting required to install pavelux® into pavers?
As with any new product integration, planning is required to enjoy all the intended benefits of the product design.
Pavelux® is not any different.
When incorporating pavelux® into existing hardscape patterns, other than a decorative border, a minor cut may be required so as not to break the pattern.
If planned correctly during the design phase, pavelux® integrates seamlessly into decorative borders including row locks, soldier and sailor courses. This allows the installer and user to enjoy the intended benefits of it’s concept and design with little or no interruption to the layout … as well as saving unnecessary cutting or drilling within the paver envelope.
Are pavelux® fixtures waterproof?
Yes. Pavelux® is a waterproof, completely encapsulated LED paver insert. The fixtures are IP67 rated, which means that they are fully protected from dust and can withstand immersion between 15 centimeters and 1 meter in depth.
Can I use pavelux® with tumbled pavers?
After speaking with a group of contractors who have installed our new pavelux® LED fixtures, along with the designer, we can offer the following advice on fitment to various manufacturers of paver stones …
The fixture itself is designed to a full dimension be it 4″, 6″ or 8″ in length as some block manufacturers maintain full dimension. In the case of tumbled stone, a minor adjustment may be needed to achieve the desired effect and maintain design. That being said, a minor trimming of the end opposite the cord is acceptable by method of sawing. Some installers actually remove that sharp edge at the top of the fixture to have it blend with the tumbled paver.
The maximum amount that can be removed from the 8″ model is 1.5″. The maximum amount that can be removed from the 4″ and 6″ model is 0.75″.
Is pavelux® affected by extreme temperatures?
Our pavelux® fixtures were tested under various temperature conditions and supply voltage.
Our pavelux® fixtures themselves at temperatures of 140º Fahrenheit and supply voltage of 12.5 volts AC demonstrated that the LED board operated well under the manufacturer’s guidelines for maximum thermals. With this being said excessive voltage has the most effect on operating temperature and is obviously a critical element in overheating LED fixtures. This is why we always remind installers and users to administer 11.5 volts or less, as LEDs have the same life characteristics as an incandescent lamp.
We also took into account that different paver surfaces are affected by the sun at different temperatures, for instance, black asphalt has a higher surface temperature than white concrete. With this in mind, lighting fixtures are typically not lit during the heat of the day, as they are meant to light the night.
As for the housing, the material utilized in our pavelux® fixtures is UV stabilized polycarbonate and will not be affected by an increase or decrease in temperature or sun exposure.
