Why buy LED?
They are 90% more energy saving compared to halogen, this really makes a difference to your energy bill!

Unlike other bulbs, LEDs virtually give off no heat, only getting slightly warm when being used for a long duration of time. They are very durable, this means if you accidently drop a LED bulb the chances are it will still be fine. This is because they have no internal filament. Last but not least, they have a much-extended bulb life compared to halogen and incandescent! However if for some reason they did stop working, all our LEDs come with a minimum of 2 year warranty, so we would happily exchange it for you. LEDs are ideal for everyone, especially businesses that require illumination for many hours per day of the week. The price you pay for the lamps or fixtures could potentially be paid back in as little as 12 months.

Can you dim LEDs?
Yes, you can dim LEDs if the lamp states dimmable. However, we recommend using a branded dimmable LED bulb and a branded LED compatible dimmer. This is because dimming LED can be very tricky, and if you don’t use the correct equipment, the bulbs could decrease their overall life – or you could fry your dimmer module.
Do you offer a credit facility?
On successful completion of a Trade Account Form and agreeing to our Terms & Conditions, after appropriate checks are completed we could offer a trade account for your business.
Do you deliver?
We hope to have in stock the materials you require. If not, most of the time we can get your materials delivered to the shop next day where collection is welcome. We currently don’t offer a delivery service.
What do you actually stock?
We stock your everyday electrical and lighting goods. Such as: white switches + sockets, accessories, cable, LED spotlights, floodlights, bulkheads, consumer units, glands, tails, trunking, conduit, tools, batteries, kitchen & bathroom lights, plus much more. PHEW!!
Do you sell bathroom lights?
We sell recessed downlights, wall lights, uplights and steplights that are IP rated for bathroom use. Aside from these, many exterior fittings can be used within the bathroom to create more dramatic effects, including uplights and floor washers. There are government safety restrictions to the lighting that can be used in the bathroom which can be discussed with your approved electrical installer.
Do you sell decorative light fittings?
Yes, we are a super stockist of Endon lighting & have accounts with numerous other decorative lighting companies. We can often order these lights in to the shop within 1-3 days.
Do you sell decorative fittings?
We supply discreet light fittings which concentrate on the effect of light as we believe that good lighting should not really be noticed. We do not supply decorative fittings except for some wall mounted, bathroom wall lights and exterior wall lights. However, decorative wall lights or table lamps for example, when combined with other light sources, give a good balance of light to a space and can be very effective. We would always allow supplies for this type of lighting within our design service.
I have found cheaper online
No problem - just let us know where from and how much, and we aim to beat any genuine quote (from reliable sources only). There are many cheap online companies offering cheap prices for cheap products. We only deal with reputable companies. We are here to last and be here for you if something goes wrong!
Do you install?
We, as a company, don’t actually install. However we can recommend a qualified local electrician to suit your needs – from a small job up to an industrial-scale job.
Do you repair lamps, laptops, etc?
We do not carry out repairs. However ,as an established small business in Whitefield, we have built up relationships with other local businesses who may be able to help you.
