Glare-free accent lighting,

Gecko emanates refined power
despite its compact form. This is
achieved by combining a slightly
conical shape with quality design
details such as seamless transitions.
With its fluid, round outlines, this
outdoor lighting tool enhances
gardens and parks as an adaptable
design feature which integrates
flexibly in any surroundings. The
small housing conceals sophisticated photometric properties:
Optionally producing a uniform
wide beam or sharp-edged accent
light, Gecko creates impressive
façade and other outdoor lighting
effects that require just a few of
these luminaires. Excellent glare
control ensures accent lighting,
floodlighting and wallwashing
from a virtually invisible light
source. With a luminaire head that
can be tilted and rotated in any
direction, Gecko is quick and easy
to adjust precisely to the required
position, as its maintenance-free

Gecko Projectors, floodlights, wallwashers – Luminaire arrangement
Projectors
Narrow spot, Spot, Flood
Accentuation
The ideal angle of tilt (y) for
accent lighting with Gecko projectors is around 30°. This emphasises
the three-dimensionality of architectural details, sculptures or trees,
without distorting the spatial
impression with excessive shadowing.
α
Arrangement: y = 30°
Washlighting
Gecko projectors ensure uniform
floodlighting of long wall surfaces,
columns or trees. The ideal angle of
tilt (y) for this is around 30°
Floodlights
Wide flood, Extra wide flood, Oval
flood
Arrangement: y = 30°

Wallwashing
Uniform vertical illuminance in
the outdoor area defines spatial
borders. Here, the distance (a) of
Gecko lens wallwashers from the
wall should be around one third of
the room height (h). This results in
an angle of tilt (c) of approx. 55°.
Arrangement: a = 1/3 x h or
c = 55°
For good longitudinal uniformity,
the spacing (d) of Gecko lens wallwashers may be up to 1.2 times the
offset from the wall (a).
Arrangement: d ≤ 1.2 x a
The optimal wall offset and luminaire spacing for each product are
indicated in the wallwasher tables
in the catalogue and the product
data sheets.
