240V DET Incandescent, CFL & LED Striplamps
Replacement 284mm 60W DET lamps for Razorlights, Decorlights, Skeleton Strips, Picture Lights and Slimlight striplights.
The DET lamp traces its origins back to the early days of lamp development 100 years ago and it hasn’t changed much during that time. It is a very popular lamp with users because of its characteristics when mounted above mirrors in bathrooms and is used for illumination when applying makeup or shaving. The soft very warm white colour is kind to the face.
The incandescent DET lamp has poor lamp life at the best of times and life deteriorates further if installed in the vertical attitude or in an application where it experiences vibration. We recommend that you never install luminaires with these lamps in the vertical attitude. The only attitude to use the tungsten DET is on a wall – i.e. horizontally on a vertical surface. Do not use it as under cabinet lighting either. The heat output can melt chocolate biscuits in the kitchen cupboard above! There are many other fittings with low energy consumption that will do the job better such as the LED option.
All these 284mm lamps are fitted with S15s lamp caps and are suitable for use on 220/240V mains supply.
The LED versions are cool running and long lasting with the manufacturers claiming up to 50,000 hours lamp life. The ultimate Eco-friendly option which can safely be used in vertical modes and under cabinets.
Finally, we can now also offer a 7W Compact Fluorescent (CFL) option with inbuilt ballast which can be used in any mounting situation.
