LED technology was originally designed as a low energy alternative to replace incandescent, fluorescent and halogen. With most of these lamp options now banned altogether in the EU. LED remains the only viable lighting option,. It's become so good, that their doesn't really need to be anything else.
At Downlights.co.uk we offer a large selection of GU10 and integrated LED downlights from the UK's leading brands. We offer expert advice and help you choose the best options for you.
LED lighting technology has certainly slowed down in recent years. Manufacturers have almost reached a peak in what they can improve on, certainly in terms of efficiency. The biggest improvements for premium downlights brands like Aurora, Collingwood and JCC Lighting are improved wiring connectors and colour temperature switching capabilities. While maintaining a competitive pricing point, these manufacturers are able to offer something more, something better than the rest.
If you can't decide which recessed downlight to choose or if you would like to know more about LED downlights, check out our very latest Downlight Guide which explains some of the terminologies and phrases used within the lighting industry. Comparing the UK's market leading brands and the latest technology they feature.
Our extensive product range of ceiling downlights includes many variations of styles and types such as fixed, adjustable, trim-less (plaster-in), bathroom rated and many more. The next generation of downlights that are gradually taking over are smart downlights which can be controlled from a smart phone. They have many additional features, no longer are you restricted to switching and dimming, you can now change colours or colour temperatures to meet the demands of your lighting environment at any point of the day.
As mentioned in our guide, connectivity should be a key decision when choosing downlights. Cheap downlights have very basic screw terminal connectors that take longer to wire. While new modern downlights such as the Aurora MPRO, Collingwood H2 Pro and JCC V50 come with a high quality wiring connector. You wire one part of the connector into your ceiling by looping cables in and out when you're doing the 'first fix'. Then plug the corresponding connector in when your ready for the 'second fix'. The corresponding connector is wired into the downlight allowing for a plug & play system.
These types of wiring connectors are even more advantageous with integrated downlights, because if they do eventually ever fail you can simply disconnect them from the ceiling. Then reconnect a new one without having to rewire or get an electrician involved.
