Colour Temperature
Most of the LED lights we offer are available in the big 3 colour temperatures which are:

2700K - Extra warm white has a warmer tone, like a halogen, although not quite as orange.

3000K - Warm white is a mid range colour tone. Not as orange as 2700K and not as harsh as 4000K. This is the most popular colour temperature.

4000K - Cool white (or neutral white), although clearer and slightly brighter than the others, it can make a room feel cold and clinical. Used correctly in the right environment it can make a room appear more modern.

If you're unsure about colour temperatures we have colour temperature adjustable downlights available. These downlights contain multiple colour temperatures that can be changed either by a dip switch, wall switch or App. More information about them can be found here.

If you want a brighter light then choose something with more lumens. The brightness difference in colour temperatures is barely 5%.

One of the best ways to choose the right finish is to make sure that your new downlights match other items in the room. Perhaps you've got brushed steel switches, sockets and door handles? Then brushed steel downlights would be a great match.

Polished chrome is popular for bathrooms as it matches taps and other bathroom equipment.

But matt white is our most popular finish as it blends less noticeably into the ceiling.

IP Rating
This is the resistance to dust and moisture. The first digit is for the resistance to dust and the second digit is for moisture.

Anything higher than IP44 can be used in bathroom zones 1 and 2.

An IP65 rating offers a higher resistance and is generally used outdoors. 

An IP68 is fully water resistant and can be submersed in water, up to 1M in depth.

MR16 & MR11 LED Bulbs

MR16 LEDs operate of 12V, this can either be 12V AC (alternating current) or 12V DC (direct current). If the voltage is AC, they are designed to work with existing low voltage halogen transformers. If they are DC you'll need an extra LED driver. An LED driver converts the mains voltage AC input into a 12V DC output.

The Philips range of MR16 LEDs we offer below operate on AC meaning you can easily swap them over for your inefficient halogens.

MR11 LEDs are smaller than MR16 meaning they are not as bright but allow them to be fitted into smaller downlights. This allows for smaller, less obtrusive holes to be cut into a ceiling. At present MR11 LED bulbs are not dimmable. We currently offer two types; Philips and Megaman, both are high quality and are a longer lasting alternative to halogen.

If you're looking for a smaller style of LED downlight, check out our EcoLED ZEP0.5 which has a cut out size of just 42mm. It can also be dimmed by selecting a dimmable LED driver.
