Daylight Lamps And Tubes

We stock a wide selection of daylight light bulbs and fluorescent tubes in a range of cap types and wattages that help you bring outdoor freshness into any room in your home. The colour temperature of daylight lamps is 6500 kelvin, a bluish-white stark light recommended for laboratories, sports, hospitals, and care homes. Our ergonomically designed LED daylight bulbs provide a crisp and vibrant light that enhances contrasts. Switching from traditional lighting methods to a daylight light bulb solution can benefit many homes, industrial and commercial environments. Using technology that produces a glow to mimic natural daylight can help to increase levels of concentration, prevent eye strain, reduce levels of fatigue, and enable you to see objects more accurately in their colour and form.

What are daylight bulbs good for?

Daylight white bulbs produce a blueish white that is designed to replicate the daylight glow. Often used in offices, schools, and study rooms, the 6000-6500k kelvin-rated light can improve concentration and reduce eye strain and headaches. It is the most practical light as it enhances the contrast between colours, enabling you to see shapes and colours more accurately. It is also known to combat SAD (seasonal affective disorder) by providing artificial daylight during the winter months when the days are shorter and less likely to be clear-skied.

What white is daylight?

Daylight white is a replication of natural daylight. It has a kelvin rating of 6000-6500k and has a slight blue tint compared to a pure, cool white bulb. This type of white is often used in offices, hospitals, and other work areas due to its supposed concentration benefits. 

Which is brighter daylight or warm white bulbs?

Warm white bulbs produce a yellowish light which softens facial tones and creates a cosy, inviting atmosphere. Because warm white bulbs provide a softer light, they appear duller or not as vivid as daylight or cool white bulbs.  Daylight white is the brightest colour temperature compared to different coloured bulbs of equivalent wattage. This is because they contain more blue light than any other colour temperature, making them appear brighter. For this reason, daylight bulbs will have a higher lumen output compared to bulbs of similar wattages and styles. 

Are daylight bulbs the same as cool white?

Even though they share many of the same applications including, kitchens, bathrooms, and offices, daylight and cool white bulbs are different. Cool white has a kelvin rating of 4000-4500k and is known as pure white, designed to have no colour influence and be as white as possible. Cool white light emits a neutral white, crisp light used in clinical areas such as hospitals, dentists, and schools. Daylight white was created to replicate the effects of natural daylight and, for this reason, has a blueish tint. Daylight white also has benefits not given by cool white lights, such as concentration improvement, reduced eye strain, and a more accurate assessment of colours and shapes.
