80w outdoor warm white floodlight - any recomendation?

Recommended Posts

My new build is three storey. I fitted an 80w warm white LED floodlight, 14m up at the apex (unable to say how many lumens). Controlled by a separate PIR controller. Sourced it from ebay. It lasted two months. 

 

I am very happy with the level of illumination it gave. and the warm white light colour. But refitting it will be (ahem) a pain. So I want to buy a replacement which is likely to last.

 

Anyone have any experience of a reliable, higher power, warm white LED floodlight?

Why did it need to be that high. I would go no higher than you are comfortable with on a 2 section ladder.  That 14M would probably need my 3 section ladder and it becomes harder.

Aesthetics, I suppose you'd say. It was installed when we had a cherry picker. I didn't expect it to blow that quickly. 

I agree with you about two section ladders. You won't catch me up a three section. I will have to find a window cleaner/electrician.

That house would look right, with a little door in that gable end to give access to the light from the loft space :ph34r:

Or to lift you up to change the bulb in the light ......

I envisage a trap door, and a clever hinge mechanism to lower the light fitting into the door opening for servicing.

 

The beam for the block and tackle would make it look the part.
