What special features do LED ceiling lights offer?

Dimmable LED lights

Looking for a dimmable LED ceiling light? Head over to the technical specification on the product detail page and choose ‘Dimmable: yes’. Use the webshop filter ‘dimmable’ to bring up an overview of products, too. Not every fitting is suitable for a dimmer, so always consult an electrician if you’re in doubt.

LED ceiling lights with sensor

LED ceiling lights don’t need a switch. The light comes on as if by magic. They’re ideal for areas where you need to carry things and don’t have a third hand to hit a switch, such as hallways. They’re great for preventing accidents.

LED Ceiling lights with fan

Use the handy technology filter to search for ceiling fans with LED bulbs.

How to install LED ceiling lights?

We send you a detailed step-by-step manual with your LED ceiling light. It’s pretty straightforward, but please consult your electrician if you’re not confident.

Are the LEDs build-in?

You’ll find most LED lights come built-in, but do check the technical specifications on the product page. If there’s no base type given in the technical spec, it’s a built-in lightbulb. Built-in bulbs offer 20,000–25,000 hours of use – that’s around ten years.

Why switch to LED?

If you’re new to LED bulbs, your bank account is going to love the energy-saving potential. LED bulbs use about 90% less energy than standard bulbs. That’s great for your energy bills and great for the planet, too. Consider how long a standard bulb lasts. Not long, right? With LED bulbs, you can forget about those endless trips to the shops to buy new bulbs, then messing about on stepladders… you’ll get up to 25,000 hours of use from LED bulbs. That’s around ten years’ worth under normal use.

On top of all that, LED bulbs warm up immediately and offer non-flickering light at full brightness. They come in a range of luminous colours. Pick warm white for interior living spaces (up to 3,000 Kelvin), universal white for office spaces (3,300 – 5,300 Kelvin) and daylight for basement or laundry rooms (from 5,300 Kelvin and up).

LED bulbs are also safe. They contain no dangerous gases, such as quicksilvers, that you can find in energy-saving light bulbs.

How bright is the light?

We measure brightness in lumens. See the technical specifications on each individual product page.

What about that luminous colour?

People assume that LED ceiling lights come in one standard luminous cold blue. But that’s not the case. These days, you can choose warm and neutral light colours as well. There’s an LED bulb for every room in your home.

Can I use every LED ceiling light in my bathroom?

Whether LED ceiling lights are bathroom-friendly depends on the IP code. If the last digit is 4 or higher, you can use the light above the bathroom mirror. For a light located above the shower, make sure the last digit is higher than 4. Please consult your electrician about which IP code he’d recommend for your specific installation, and use the webshop filter ‘IP code’.

Are LED ceiling lights fire-rated?

Every one of our LED ceiling lights complies with European norm DIN-EN-60598-1 (the norm on luminaires). For more information, contact Customer Services.
