How to choose the right LED bulb?

How much brightness do you need?

When we only had incandescents it was enough to think about bulb brightness in terms of watts. Now we need to start thinking in lumens. Lumens (lm) measure light output.

The following table estimates how many lumens you get from your watts for different bulb technologies:

 

       LUMENS
      (AC170 - 240V)

250 - 350 lm

400+ lm

700+ lm

900+ lm

1100+ lm

           Standard 25W 40W 60W  75W  100W
           Halogen 18W 28W 42W  53W  70W
           CFL 6W 9W 12W 15W 20W
           LED 3 - 4W 5 - 6W 10W 13W  18W

 

What fitting do you need?

 You can use our LED Bulbs and Spotlights with all your lamps – we have a wide range of fittings:

Want a warmer or a cooler light? 

The temperature of light can be measured in terms of ‘Kelvin’. Very orange light has a low number of kelvin, a candle is about 1,500K. Day light is much cooler, above 4,000K.  Here are the available options we offer:

 

Warm White (2700-3500K): This one most closely matches the color of incandescent light and is most used in the home to create a warm atmosphere.

 

Natural/Day White (4500K): This color of light is brighter white and does not have a yellow component feeling. It is typically used for office, retail, workshop lighting environments etc. A traditional fluorescent tube light normally emits light in this range. In a kitchen, bathroom or other situations you may prefer a slightly less yellow light and the natural white would be the perfect choice.

 

White/Cool White (6000K): This color of white light tends to have a bluish tone. Lights in this category are typically used in manufacturing and high brightness environments.

If your home has a quite modern style you should definitely consider trying some cooler temperatures (4500K or 6000K), as they can look great in the right context.

 

We will try to give you an idea of the atmosphere with different light colours on the following images:

Which shape do you need?

Light bulbs are described by designated shape names and diameter/length codes. This usually takes a letter-number format. The letter(s) indicates the shape and the numbers indicate the diameter or the length of the bulb (in millimeters).

The shape of bulbs we offer:

 

A series
Standard
C series
Candle
F series
Flame
G series
Globe
P series
Pear
PAR 
series
R series
Reflector
T series
Tubular
R111 PL

 

 

Bulb shape is not just a question of liking the look of a bulb, it is about how it throws light.  The design of the bulb determines what direction the light goes, so you need to consider what you want the bulb to do.

 

For a ceiling you might want an “arbitrary” shape.  For a lamp you might need a candle shape with a broad spread.  And if you are putting a spot into a recessed downlight you’ll need a reflector with an appropriate beam angle. The bulbs with wider beam angle light bigger areas while the LED spotlights highlight certain areas.

 

These are the beam angle options we offer: 20°, 25°, 32°, 38°, 40°, 110°, 120°, 150°, 160°, 180°, 195° , 200°, 270°, 300°.
