Plans to build 100 new flats in Slough were met with concern in August as it was revealed that the new properties were to be built with very limited natural lighting, with a ‘substantial’ amount of apartments set to receive below the recommended amount of daylight. This insight has further sparked worry that, if they are to go ahead with such poor lighting conditions, the standard of new build homes will continue to follow suit. BLT Direct understands the struggles faced by housing developers, and offers its range of daylight LED lamps as a low cost alternative to help them meet their daylight requirements, even when natural lighting is hard to achieve.
The leading distributor of lighting solutions offers products for both industrial and domestic lighting requirements. Amongst its range of specialist lightbulbs it stocks a selection of daylight LED lamps including daylight spotlights, incandescent daylight bulbs and event compact fluorescent daylight tubes. This range of bulbs provide a light source that mimics the spectrum of light provided by natural daylight, emitting a clear, white glow to illuminate a home.
Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct said “Natural light can brighten up any room reducing eye strain, making colours appear true to form and generally creating a positive, appealing environment for living and working in. Unfortunately, when building new homes it is not always possible for every property to naturally let in the recommended amount of daylight, and many will sadly remain in the shadows.”
Steve, adds, “However, there is a solution for homes like this, and although it might not be achieved through natural sources this kind of illumination is possible. We offer a huge selection of daylight LED bulbs and other lighting solutions that emit a daylight glow to help any home enjoy quality levels of lighting indoors.”
With prices starting at just £2.99, lighting up a property with natural glow using daylight light bulbs doesn’t need to be expensive, and can easily be included in even the tightest development budgets. These naturally illuminating bulbs are available in GU10 daylight spotlights, T8 fluorescent tubes, candle lamps and more, meaning that all domestic light fittings can be upgraded without having to replace existing fixtures.
