There are so many different light bulbs it can be confusing and hard to find the ones you require. The lamp manufacturers claim there are about 5000 variations in use in the UK. Naturally some are in common use and others are for special applications. Our ranges focus on the more popular lamps for use in decorative, display and amenity lighting schemes. This includes mains and low voltage, fluorescent, LED and discharge lamps. There are plenty of other types available for use in just about every applications imaginable.
Depending on demand we will slowly but surely expand into these specialist lamps, bulbs and tubes. Whenever possible, we stock only quality branded lamps which are instantly recognisable to those in the trade. We realise there is nothing more annoying than replacing a lamp that blows the very next day. And, you will be pleased to hear, the more you buy the cheaper our lamps and fluorescent tubes will become.
It is usually possible to replace faulty electronic control gear with an exact match. If you can change "like for like" that will save a lot of extra work. Finding an alternative is not always easy especially if it has to fit within the confines of the old ballast. Even if you were lucky enough to find a substitute you would probably have to drill new fixings. And, the cable connections may be different, perhaps positioned on the other end of the ballast. Then of course you may have to extend and adjust the wiring to suit the new connections. As you can see using equivalent control gear is not always as easy as it sounds. Hopefully with our range of discontinued and current spares, our electrical store will be able to provide you with your exact requirements.

Power tools with electric leads are still available in 230V and 110V for building site work. However, they are restricted in their field of operation because of the length of their lead. But, some power tools like chop saws and tile cutters do not need to be moved. In circumstances like that, corded power tools are sometimes the preferred choice.

Heaters used to warm large working environments are nothing like those use in domestic applications. Commercial heaters usually have to propel heat over much greater distances. This is an essential requirement for heating properties like shopping centres, airports and other open areas. They are usually fixed at high level and angled down to distribute heat towards staff and customers. There is a choice of quartz, ceramic or fan heaters. The heaters to be used will depend on the size of the area to be heated. It will also depend on whether they are for inside or outside use.

This includes any area at home or work including kitchens, bathrooms and shop windows. You can light up pictures or features in the home or products on sale in a department store. What's more, some are available in as many as ten different finishes.
In most cases decorative lighting will enhance the look of any room. It will improve their look far more than any other form of lighting. In the home it works better in some areas than it does in others. That is especially true of the lounge, bedrooms and hallway. These are areas that make the most of this type of lighting. When matched with all the furnishings it can truly make a room stand out. Not only are they features in their own right, decorative lights also light other exhibits. They bring other shapes, designs and colours to life. Decorative lighting is also a major feature of many commercial venues. It is essential to the look of hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs.

Garden lighting can look spectacular in the summer and the winter. In fact, it can make a garden look special at any time of year. Garden lighting makes it easy to create special effects at the back and front of any house. It can be used to light pathways as they wind across a lawn. Placed amongst the shrubbery it looks amazing as the leaves move in the breeze. When beamed upwards into trees it will add a whole new dimension to the garden. It can be submerged into ponds to light up fish and water lilies. Garden lighting can also work wonders when highlighting gazebos, decking and patios. And, it can be used to enhance hidden rock features and other special places. From dusk till dawn gardens can be illuminated for all to enjoy.
The number one priority of security lighting is to discourage burglars from attempting a break-in. There is no doubt that security lighting will help prevent criminals targeting your home. They do not like to approach houses that have good lighting because they can easily be seen. Criminals prefer to operate in complete darkness because it makes their identification much harder. It can also be very reassuring for property owners when they approach their home late at night. Business parks, office blocks and car parks also benefit from the use of security lighting. It helps to discourage petty crimes such as graffiti and vandalism. It makes it impossible for criminals to hide in dark areas from where they can surprise their victims. In areas where CCTV is used to detect crime, good lighting is essential. It makes identification of vehicles and individuals involved in crime much easier.
When it gets dark it is essential for some areas to have outside lighting. It will allow people to find their way around without falling and causing injury. When chosen correctly it can also add a special touch to both buildings and gardens. This type of lighting can be used in public parks and around commercial property. Bulkhead lights, bollards and lanterns are a favourite choice. At home, in the garden, it can also be used for lighting patios, doorways and pathways. Whatever type of outside luminaires are required, we are the online electrical wholesalers that are determined to provide you with the widest choice.
Modern office space demands the very best up to date commercial lighting. It will enable everyone to enjoy their surroundings to its full potential. It's a proven fact that by improving the quality of the work place, production increases. It has been shown time and time again that employees will work harder for longer in the right conditions.

The industrial lighting range has been specially designed for use in hostile locations. These aggressive environments include warehouses, loading bays, factories or anywhere similar. The very nature of these sites suggests special lighting is needed. Lighting in these areas will be exposed to harsh conditions and a manual work force. Industrial lighting is more than able to stand up to these challenges. As well as being strong, industrial light fittings are incredibly well designed. Styling, as well as performance, is of the utmost importance. The new designs are far more attractive than the plain and basic designs from the past.

Whatever the shape, there is nothing that will highlight special characteristics like floodlighting. Whether it's a bridge, house, castle or just a plain office block, the effect can be enormous. Industrial, commercial and domestic properties can all benefit from this type of lighting. As well as making the property look good it will also provide a level of security. A small number of flood lights can light some very large buildings. And, because the lamps are low energy, good results can be achieve very economically. When flood lights are used with photocells or PIRs, it can reduce operating costs even more.
The emergency lighting system will provide low level lighting in the event of a power cut. During the darker months of the year it will allow staff to regain their bearings.

Emergency lighting should be installed all over the building, in offices, corridors, landings and stairways. We have several brands available so you can match one with the decor of your building.
Many buildings have hundreds of light fittings that are switched 'on' for long periods of time. Some are lighting rooms and hallways that are only occupied for short spells. In areas that are not being used, this is an enormous waste of electricity. To make things worse, many of these buildings leave their lighting 'on' right through the night. These days, there are plenty of lighting controls available to manage lights so this can easily be avoided. They can automatically switch 'off' lighting if no-one is in that part of the building. The PIR occupancy switches can sense if an area is occupied. They will keep lights running only if the area is being used and will switch 'off' if it is not. Lighting can also be controlled by daylight linked dimmers. This will not only switch lights on when a room is occupied, it will also dim the lights to a natural light level. Most lights can be controlled in one way or another to help you save money.
Any electrical appliance or circuit that needs to be governed will require a control. Every property, no matter what the size will use controllers, programmers and time clocks of some sort. Plug-in timers are popular in houses for switching 'on' table lights when the owners are out. It gives potential burglars the impression there is someone at home when the house is empty. Other controls common to every home are central heating programmers, cylinder stats and room stats. Or, if there is no central heating system, an immersion heater time switch can be used. Outside lighting can be controlled by time clocks and there are several types available. Some of these clocks are used for switching basic filament lamps. And, there are also the more specialist clocks for switching CFLs and fluorescent tubes. We also keep a wide range of trade time clocks for use in commercial and industrial applications.
Householders and business owners are forever conscious about security. Everyone dreads the thought of their property being stolen. With unemployment at a high level, the number of burglaries is bound to go upwards. Houses are the main target of some criminals because they have so many vulnerable entry points. Windows and doors can easily be forced open to gain access. Many homes have garden sheds which are seen as another easy target. Most businesses have physical deterrents such as roller shutters and window bars. However, there is nothing like a burglar alarm when it comes to deterring criminals. They know the sound of the alarm could alert locals and lead to their arrest. Having the right security equipment installed now, will save a lot of distress in the future.
A single smoke alarm is better than no smoke alarm at all. However, a set of smoke and heat alarms will alert you to danger much faster. When a fire breaks out you have only seconds to leave the building. Smoke and heat detectors are the best way of ensuring your safety in the event of a fire. For those on a tight budget, battery operated smoke detectors are quick and easy to install. If you require a more professional system, then the mains voltage operated alarms are the systems of choice. They are available in hardwired and wireless versions.

Installing temporary lighting is usually the first job for electricians on new building sites. For safety reasons it's a vital job especially during the darker months of the year. It involves rigging long overhead leads with lamp protecting cages throughout the building. The safety cages will prevent breakages as well as hot bulbs coming into contact with workmen. The overhead lighting is semi-permanent but lighting tripods and work lights are completely mobile. Site transformers are used to supply temporary power to all the power tools that will be needed. On big sites a large transformer is usually installed on each level of the building. The transformers are equipped with banks of 16A and 32A sockets. The sockets are used to power portable lighting, as well as all the other equipment that will be used. We provide everything necessary to power and light sites of every size.
We are one of the online electrical wholesalers who keep a wide range of electric cables for just about every application. Some can be used in domestic dwellings and some have been designed for use in business properties. There are cables for house wiring, communication and networking. There are also cables for installing outside underground or for clipping to the wall. They range from the very small right up to the very largest of sizes.

To manage and distribute cables you need systems of ducting both large and small. These cable management systems start at the point where the main electrical cable enters the building. They will run horizontally and vertically throughout the property. Some will be mounted on the surface in plain sight and some will be hidden away in voids and shafts. The types of channels and ducts used will depend on the property. The design of industrial systems will differ from that of commercial systems. They will include maxi, mini, dado and skirting trunking, cable tray and conduit installations.
