Step up to LED

Halogen bulbs and candles phase out from September 2018 onwards

As you might have heard, the process of gradual phase out of inefficient, energy-consuming light has started in the European Union. Why? Well, compared to LEDs for instance, halogen bulbs consume five times more energy and emit significantly more heat. All of which negatively impacts the environment.


This means that Halogen bulbs and candles can no longer be produced or imported for resale into the EU. (Any remaining halogen bulbs and candles on commercial stock can still be sold out after this date.) But there is a very good alternative: LED – with lots of great benefits and they also come in an extensive range to replace your halogen bulbs.

Check out the brochure to find the recommended LED replacements for the halogen bulbs and candles.
