Terminology

 

Most of our fittings will take compact Low Energy Lamps (fluorescent lamps with integral ballast). 

They look most suitable with etched or coloured lamps but do not look good with clear glass.

We can convert most lamps to more efficient four pin, low energy versions with remote ballast hidden in ceiling plate or behind gear tray.  There are also dimmable and digital for control system options available.
