Compact Fluorescent Lamps, often referred to as CFLs are designed to replace the energy hungry incandescent bulb. Unlike the incandescent bulb the CFL is a low-energy, energy saving lighting solution that offers noticeable advantages and benefits over a general service lamp. Firstly, the power consumption; a CFL uses between 20% and 60% less electricity to power the lamp and secondly the CFL lasts between 8 and 15 times longer which makes a huge difference not just on lamp replacement costs but on reduced energy costs too. Furthermore, the CFL offers higher efficacy and produces less heat than an incandescent and in many cases is dimmable.
We stock the complete range of CFLs in wattages from 5W to 80W with 2 pins or 4 pins at the base. Diameters span 25mm – 207mm and lengths 20mm – 539mm. As you can see the selection is wide and varied not withstanding colour temperatures - from the white spectrum through to germicidal and UVA blue! An incredibly versatile light source, the CFL is suitable for a host of applications from domestic to professional commercial lighting and plant growing to research and testing in industry.
