We have a large selection on offer from the UK's leading brands. We stock a vast range of high quality professional LED downlights.

Like with most things in life, you get what you pay for and LED downlights are no different. If you look closely at the specifications, higher priced products come with longer guarantee periods, longer life expectancies and are usually brighter with higher lumen outputs.
Market leading brands that we offer like Aurora, JCC and Philips produce superior quality products that are built to last. Some brands like Philips and Aurora have a range of premium quality products and a range of economy products such as Philips Master Value and Aurora Enlite.
These economy brands have become more popular than the premium ones due to the value they offer. Although the life expectancies are guarantees are deliberately lower, they are long enough.
Unless you’ve already got an LED compatible dimmer switch such as the Varilight V-Pro it’s unlikely that your dimmer switch will work. When you turn on your lights you may get a flickering or strobing effect which is due to incompatibility. To resolve this issue, you can either purchase a brand new LED compatible dimmer switch which includes the wall plate or you could just purchase a retrofit module.

A retrofit module can be easily swapped over allowing you to keep the existing finish of wall plate you’ve got. If you’ve got a four gang dimmer switch you may only need to replace one of the modules as you’ve still got halogens on the other circuits.
As of September 2016 GU10 halogens are banned from production and importation within the EU. Although it is still legal to buy them, this ruling shows how grossly inefficient they are.
If you’re happy with your current GU10 downlights but just want something more energy efficient than halogen, you can upgrade to LED with GU10 or MR16 lamps, found in our "led bulbs section".
If you fancy a change and want something more modern looking, integrated LED downlights not only look better but they also perform better than retrofit.
This is because the entire downlight is built around the LED light source to provide optimum heat dissipation and brightness.
Make sure your new downlights are going to fit inside them. All of the dimensions for our downlights can be found in the dimension’s tab of each product. If you do order them wrong then fear not as we offer a free 30 days returns policy.
Dimmable LED Downlights are a great way to control the lighting levels in your home and create the perfect look to your rooms. Even if you’ve not got a dimmer switch in place, why don’t you get one? A dimmer switch not only lets you adjust the level of brightness of your lights but it also saves energy and extends the lifetime of your LEDs.
This is because you’re not constantly running them at 100%, you’re giving them a rest.
Fire rated downlights seal off the hole and restore the ceilings natural ability to protect your home from a fire. Although fire rated downlights don't prevent fire from spreading, they do help slow down the rate at which fire spreads through your ceiling holes, giving you more time to escape in the event of a fire.
Not only this, fire rated LED Downlights also help you abide by Part B building regulations, which can be found here.
If not, you should consider getting some as valuable heat can escape through the downlight holes and into your loft space. Or if you’ve previously cut a hole in your insulation you should patch it up as a recessed downlight can act like a chimney and draw in the warm air from a room.
Once you’ve got thermal insulation you’ll need insulation coverable downlights or loft caps. These products allow you to lay thermal insulation on top of the lights. And just because a downlight is fire rated it doesn’t mean it’s insulation coverable.
