How to choose a garland

The primary parameter when choosing an electric garland is the degree of protection. It is indicated on the packaging:

  • IP20 — indoor use only;
  • IP44 — street decoration under a canopy;
  • IP65, IP67 — outdoor use without a canopy in all weather conditions.

In a garland with IP67 protection, rubber insulation, and such a model is not afraid even of heavy rain. It is considered the safest. The insulation must be intact, especially at the connection to the plug or controller. The length of the free wire from the extreme light bulb to the plug is at least one and a half meters, otherwise it will be inconvenient to connect the festive lighting.

On the packaging of a quality garland there is always a text in Russian. The box always contains information about the manufacturer, the type of lamps, the total length of the garland, as well as the degree of protection. If a foreign text has a sticker with Russified text on top, this indicates that the product was brought into the country illegally and could be dangerous.

During the operation of the garland, the presence of any unpleasant odor is simply excluded. Burnt plastic smells like a product with formaldehydes, which is dangerous to health, not to mention its fire hazard — such lighting equipment cannot be used.

Test the product right in the store: plug it in, switch modes, make sure that every light is on.

Frequently asked Questions

How to decorate a Christmas tree with a garland?


If the forest beauty is installed in a corner so that one of the sides is not visible, then the garland is hung in a zigzag pattern only along the visible side — from top to bottom. Or the threads descend from the top of the head to the floor vertically down, but then you will need several garlands. The effect of volumetric light is created by winding the garland closer to the trunk and slightly diagonally. Moreover, it is desirable that the wire is invisible.

How to calculate the length of a Christmas tree garland?


There is a formula for calculating — the height of the Christmas tree is multiplied by 3.14 (Pi number). If the garland is hung in a spiral with a distance between turns of 30 cm, then for a one and a half meter spruce you will need a 10-meter garland, for a 2-3-meter tree — no shorter than 20 meters. If the distance between the turns is large, then the garland can be taken shorter.

How to store a garland?


It is advisable that the electric garland be stored in a cool, dark place. In order not to suffer with annual unraveling, sending it for storage, wind the thread on a “spool” of cardboard or plastic, and fix the free end with tape. It is important to prevent kinks and kinks, otherwise the wire may be damaged during prolonged storage.
