Lighting and Technical Questions
What is LED and why should I choose it?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and is the lighting system which currently uses the least amount of energy. While traditional halogen globes and fittings transfer a large percentage of their energy into heat, LED do not get very hot at all- this means they use up to 80% less energy, boast an extended lifespan and are a great option for households with small children.
What globe should I choose?
You can find the recommended globe for each product on their product page, This will tell you which base to select, e.g. E27 (which is a standard sized screw-in) and the maximum wattage, e.g. 60W max. Make sure the globe you select matches this base and doesn't exceed the maximum- an LED globe will in most cases be much lower wattage than the maximum for this product. Another thing to keep in mind is whether the product is dimmable and whether you are looking for something dimmable. All halogen globes are dimmable, all fluorescent globes are NON dimmable and LED globes are available in both dimmable and non dimmable options. If your lamp is a touch lamp, please select a halogen globe as these work best in this type of lamp.
We’re working on a Globe Guide to help you out, but in the meantime, give us a call on 1300 798 220 and our customer service team will be happy to assist.
What Is an E27? What is a B22?
E27 (or ES) refers to standard sized edison screw (screw in) in globes and B22 (or BC) refers to standard sized bayonet globes (push and twist).
What do I need to know about Filament Globes?
Filament globes are specialty globes which have a carbon filament or LED filament light source. In most cases, they have a lower light output and are used for decorative purposes. Carbon Filament globes have a relatively short lifespan and delecate decorative filament, while LED versions ternd to use less energy and have longer lifespans.
What is the difference between Warm White and Cool White? What should I pick?
Warm and Cool White describe the colour of the light that a light source emits. This is called 'Colour Temperature' and is measured in 'Kelvin' ( or K), e.g. 3000K. The higher the number the bluer the light. As a general rule in residential situations, we recommend Cool White (around 4000K) in task areas (such as the kitchen or bathroom) and Warm White (2700K-3000K) in any other living areas. Having said this, Colour Temperature is a personal preference, so select a colour that you are comfortable with.
What is Tri Colour or CCT?
Tri Colour or Changeable Colour Temperature (CCT) describes a fitting which has the ability to change between Warm White, Cool White and Daylight colour temperatures by the flick of a switch. Some of our brands are now stocking lights with this feature. If you are looking for something with these capabilities, please give us a call or send us an email and our team will be happy to assist you in making a selection.
What is RGB?
RGB stands for Red Green Blue and is a light which can change between (normally) a minimum of 16 colours. This can be done either by remote or by app. RGBW refers to fittings which also have a Warm White and Cool White option available.
Why does Voltage matter?
In Australia, the mains power voltage for residential properties is 240V (with some exceptions). The majority of our products run on a constant voltage (for help with constant current products, please call us on 1300 798 220), the most popular voltages being 12V and 240V. If your product is labelled as 240V then it runs on the same voltage as the mains power in your home - your electrician will be able to install it directly to mains. 12V and 24V items require drivers to step the 240V of the mains power down to a voltage they can handle. Some of these products will have built in drivers, while others will require you to purchase a separate driver. If you aren't sure or if you need help selecting the correct driver for your situation, please give us a call on 1300 798 220.
Is everything I need in the box?
The product page will normally let you know if you need anything other than what is already in the box. Some lights will require drivers - if you aren't sure, please give us a call on 1300 798 220 and our Sales Team can assist you in finding all you need for your particular situation.
