Frequently Asked Questions

Our most frequently asked questions can be found here, covering a variety of topics. If you cannot find the answer to your question here, please visit our contact us page.

Does the item I’ve chosen include light bulbs?

Some of the items do include light blubs and others don’t. Please see dimensions and specifications section of individual products to confirm.

What are LEDs?

LEDs are light emitting diodes – electronic components that product light by converting electrical energy into light via the movement of electrons within the material of the diode. LEDs are beginning to replace most conventional light sources due to their efficiency and low energy use. They have a very long lamp life and provide a low heat source.

What is a Kelvin?

Kelvin (k) is a unit of measurement which describes the hue of a light source (the warmth or colour of the light). The higher the Kelvin value, the closer the colour of the light will be to sunlight.

As a guide, bulbs with an output of:
3500k or less = amber hue
3500k – 4100k = white hue
4200k or more = blueish hue

What is a Lumen?

Lumens (lm) is the measurement of light emitted from a bulb. The higher the lumens the brighter the light.

As a guide, bulbs with an output of:
40 watt = 450 lumens
60 watt = 800 lumens
75 watt = 1,100 lumens
100 watt = 1,600 lumens
150 watt = 2,600 lumens

What is an IP rating?

Ingress protection (IP) rating describes the resistance of a bulb against dust and water.

An IP rating is usually displayed with the two letters followed by two numbers, for example IP20 or IP44.

The first number relates to the protection against foreign bodies and dust (0 = not protected to 6 = dust tight).

The second number refers to protection against water (0 = not protected to 8 = suitable for continuous submersion in water, for example in a swimming pool).

What is an IK rating?

Impact Protection (IK rating) describes the level of pressure a casing provides against mechanical impacts for example is a product is stood on or driven over.

IK ratings range from IK00 (0.14 joules impact) to IK10 (20 joules impact).
