Questions about the product

We only have LED fixtures and light bulbs. We no longer sell incandescent light bulbs

Colour of the light

1800 Kelvin

Kaarslicht

2200 Kelvin

Warm Sfeerlicht

2700 Kelvin

Warm / Witlicht

4000 Kelvin

Wit bijna blauw

1800 Kelvin – Is very warm light, comparable to candlelight and only suitable as mood or accent lighting.

2200 Kelvin –  Extra warm, pear atmosphere. Not nice to read.

2700 Kelvin – Is soft warm white light, most commonly used in the living room / living space in the Netherlands.

3000 Kelvin – Is white light, very suitable for certain activities, such as reading and working.

4000 Kelvin – Is white bright light, similar to the color temperature of fluorescent lighting – We don’t sell this.

5500 Kelvin – Is daylight (sunlight)  – We don’t sell this.

Amount of light (Lumen / Watt)

Wattage and Lumen?

Wattage indicates the amount of power consumption. This used to be equivalent to a certain light output. LED lighting is a lot more economical than an incandescent lightbulb. so it requires less energy for the same light output. This is good for the environment and wallet. That is we we no longer speak of wattage, but of Lumen

Incandescent lightbulb = 1 wattage = 10 lumen

LED lightbulb = 1 wattage = 50 Lumen

A 60 Watt Incandescent lightbulb is equivalent to a 12W LED bulb. Both give a light output of approximately 600 Lumen.

Dimmable

Not all light bulbs are dimmable.

It is clearly marked at each light bulb.

Not all wall dimmers are suitable for LED light bulbs.

Old wall dimmers give off too much power. As a result, the LED light bulb remains fully lit. Recommend the customer a dimmer with a low net value (low power output).

Not all fixtures are suitable for dimmable light sources

for hanging lamps and ceiling lamps with an E14 or E27 fitting, we recommend purchasing a dimmable light bulb.


Floorlamps
 & tablelamps often have a switch in the cord. Adding an ordinary dimmable light bulb makes no sense.

Everything with a normal switch can be made dimmable, with a special light bulb. We call this: click and dim!

What is click and dim?

Is there no dimmer available… but a switch?

the following technique works on each switch:

So: wall switch, but also with a flash in the cord of a product.

Small or big fitting?

Our ex-colleague wrote a blog about this. 🙂

Bathroom

Not all lamps are suitable for the bathroom.

This depends on the IP-value.

IP 21 = dustproof, suitable for ordinary moisture-free areas.

IP 44 = splash-proof and can be used in certain areas in the bathroom

IP 65 = can be used in the entire bathroom

IP44

IP65

Garden

Not every lamp is suitable for the garden. The IP-value is important for this.

IP44 or higher.

Suppose the customer wants a pendant lamp with IP21-value. We often get this question.

“Is this hanging lamp allowed under the porch? Does it hang dry there?”

Our answer: “This lamp is not suitable four outdoor use. We do not recommend this, but there are customers who do it anyways.”
