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%.

Finish
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.

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.

Dimmable LED Strip

Dimmable LED strip tape is not just one individual product, it's made up of the following three components:

1. LED strip tape
2. Mains dimmable LED driver
3. LED compatible dimmer switch


LED Strip Tape

You can use almost any version of LED strip tape as long as you have the full set of components. If you want to dim colour changing RGB LED tape then you dim and control this using the controller, which means you need a non dimmable LED driver to power it.

As long as you have a single colour version of LED strip tape such as warm white, colour white or blue etc you can dim it using these components.

Mains Dimmable LED Driver

We offer a selection of mains dimmable LED drivers that range from a miniature 3W version up to a big 200W version. Each is available in 12V DC and 24V DC outputs. There are other styles of dimmable drivers available such as 0-10V, DALI and DMX but if you want to dim LED tape with a normal dimmer switch then mains dimming which also known as TRIAC is the best and often most economical option to go for.

LED Compatible Dimmer Switch

An LED compatible dimmer switch needs to be either trailing edge or leading edge. This can include home automation systems such as Lutron Grafik Eye, Rako, Lightwave RF and many more. For a basic LED dimmer switch, the Varilight V-Pro will dim up to 100 watts of LED tape. For longer runs or bigger loads you'd need the Varilight V-Com and a bigger LED driver.

Confused?

If you need further assistance please contact us on 01706 521188, we've been selling dimmable LED strip for over 4 years since the technology first became available and have helped many customers to successfully order and install it.
