Exterior LED Batten, Versatile, Robust and Extremely Efficient
LED Battens are great for usage outdoors as many are compliant with IP65 ratings due to their robust outer shells which protect the fitting from rain or dust. Anything below IP45 and the fitting wouldn't be fit for usage outdoors as water could damage the light. LED First Choice always recommends IP65 for a robust and watertight fitting perfect for outdoor usage.
Batten Lights are becoming vastly popular to the end user as they are very simple to set up and highly efficient products. Our IP65 5ft Battens produce a high lumen output of 7500 lumens and use just 63 watts! Lumen output is how we measure the amount of light a product gives out. The higher the lumen output the brighter the light. The Integral LED Battens are encased with a Tough Shell IP65 polycarbonate outer. The Tough Shell Batten has the ultimate protection from dust and water should your application need it. The frosted diffuser provides even light distribution. Ideal for demanding environments such as warehouses, factories, car parks and more. Electricians love these Batten fittings for exterior applications because of their flexibility in terms of application and their high efficiency for saving customers £’s on their energy bills.

LED Batten - Choosing the right Length and Colour Temperature
When choosing the right LED Batten for you, you will need to ask yourself two things. What length do I require? What Colour Temperature do I require? The length of fitting you require will depend on the size of the room you wish to illuminate. If there is a pre existing Tube light see what length that one is and select the same length in LED Batten fitting. LED versions will be the same length as the old fluorescent tube lights as they have been designed to easily replace these old fittings.

When it comes to selecting the colour temperature again this is a personal preference we recommend a white 4000k-6500k light however, if you prefer a warm orange colour light we recommend a 2700k- 3400k. The letter ‘k’ when referring to colour temperature just refers to Kelvin which is how colour temperature is measured.
What are IP Ratings?
The infographic below gives you an explanation of all the IP ratings for any electrical product. The first digit refers to solid object ingress and the second digit refers to the water ingress. This infographic is perfect for use when choosing the correct Batten for your exterior installation. Simply match up the description of the ratings to the installation required for yourself. We recommend an IP65 LED Batten for domestic installation.
