Can I use Pavelux® with tumbled pavers?

Integral Lighting

Answer
After speaking with a group of contractors who have installed our new Pavelux LED Paver Inserts, along with the fixture 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 the sharp end edge at the top of the fixture to have it blend with the tumbled paver.

The maximum amount that can be removed from the end opposite the cord is as follows… 1.5″ from the 8″ length; 0.75″ from the 6″ length; 0.75″ from the 4″ length.

Is Pavelux® affected by extreme temperatures?

Integral Lighting

Answer

Our Pavelux fixtures were tested under various temperature conditions and supply voltages.

Pavelux® fixtures themselves at temperatures of 140° 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 12 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.
