Hi, I am thinking about fitting a LED brick light into the house brickwork, this post isn't about how to do it but merely should it be done.
My plan is to remove a brick from the external wall (house has cavity walls) so that I can fit the brick light and put the wiring through the inner skin into our under stairs cupboard area.
Are there any concerns that I may not be aware of by doing this?, I'm not sure if the brick lights are meant to be fitted into house walls.

If there is no problem doing this could anyone recommend a good unit, not all units are IP65...do they have to be?.

Thanks for any advice.

If I were you I'd get a builders opinion, and probably pay them to do it. You may never know what the knock on effects structurally could come come from removing one brick.
#2
No problem removing 1 brick. It is done all the time for vents ect.. Not the brightest light from what I have seen of them. Depending on where and what you want it for I guess

Having the IP65 depends on the location you're fixing the unit. What sort of weather will be hitting it and will you be jet washing it ?

The 'knock on effects' of removing one brick are absolutely zero.

I have 6 brick lights in my front perimeter wall I wouldn't be without them 1.4watt but extremely bright

It will be on the side of my house that is fairly well protected but may get jet wash spray occasionally.

WOW....they are super bright. Had a look on Ebay, they seem to be perfect (black would have fitted in better but hey ho). Her in doors was wondering if they are showing signs of tarnishing?

Thanks!!

Nope no tarnishing stainless steel and no way water will get inside these
