The Cast website doesn't have any photometric data on their niche light. Does anyone have a rough idea estimate of the type of light that this puts out, such as spread and distance. Also, does the Cast wall light tilt any? The documentation doesn't mention a pivot point and every photo and drawing shows it pointed at a 90 (maybe 85) degree from the ground. Thanks.

the cast wall wash does not tilt. We have used them on several occasions and also have a few at our house. You need to stake it in on an angle. This is the major drawback to this light.

Im not sure on the niche light photometrics but they use a bi pin bulb. We just used em for the first time on a project where we needed a very small light mounted up in an arbor to down light for some accent lighting.

Thanks Billy, I had assumed that the wall wash might be a case of staking at an angle. That doesn't seem like the best solution but if the ground is hard enough and it doesn't get bumped it probably isn't a big deal.

When you used the niche light, was the arbor around 8' high? I was wondering what kind of distance it could be and still spill some light on the ground. Thanks.

its pretty reflective inside and comes with a 20w bulb. We installed 10w bulbs because the 20 was just too hot. The arbor was around 9 ft tall and nice darkened weathered wood.

Still have not gone back to take pics of the job yet. Will do so soon
