The kitchen is often the heart of the home and is an area of multi-functional use where a variety of activities take place. You may use your kitchen for preparing and cooking food but it may also be used as a kitchen/diner where you entertain friends or perhaps an area where the children do their homework. With the trend of open plan kitchen and dining areas the kitchen lighting should be every bit as good as the lighting in the rest of home – if not better. Because of the variety of uses of the kitchen it is important to use efficient and effective lighting. You will want to use lighting that is bright and clean and you enabling you to see what you are doing without shadows and haziness. Whatever you're looking to use as kitchen lighting we are on hand to advise, supply and fit.
Recessed lighting for floors is ideal for use inside or outside. Use recessed floor lights to provide a feature or guide light, and/or to provide up light illumination against a backdrop of a wall. It is important to choose the correct light source. LED and fluorescent light sources are cool (easy to walk on) whilst tungsten and halogen light sources are too hot to walk on (in bare feet).
We also can supply and fit a great selection of lighting for gardens and outdoor spaces that will help you create ambiance and a sense of theatre. There are lots of choices of simple spike lights that push in and switch on - we can advise on these too.
Crystal chandeliers add beauty and elegance to any home with high ceilings or a large open stairwell. Traditionally crystal chandeliers are made from chrome or gold coloured metal frames and adorned with lead crystal creating a magical sparkling effect. To be classified as crystal the glass must contain a minimum of 24% lead oxide, but with quality chandeliers it is often above 30%.
Swarovski crystal is the best money can buy, not only does it have a high lead content but the crystals are cut and finished in a way no other companies can match to create that perfect sparkle. Many modern crystal chandeliers are often also dressed in Swarovski crystal, but other crystals and even optical glass are used. From the traditional to the ultra-modern look, we can find a style to suit your home.
If you are landlord, or even if you have a large house, emergency lighting may be something you are thinking of. There are two areas of emergency lighting to find out about - Escape Lighting and Standby Lighting
It is vital that emergency lighting comes on if the normal lighting fails. It needs to be sufficiently bright, illuminated for enough time, and the light sources so positioned that the occupants of a building can be evacuated safely in an emergency. BS 5266 Emergency Lighting, the Code of Practice for the emergency lighting of premises, offers simple guidance on the positioning of emergency luminaires, minimum height levels, acceptable glare levels, together with minimum routine testing schedules.
Emergency lighting requirements specify that luminaires are positioned:
~ Along escape routes
~ At every change in direction
~ Adjacent to any step or trip hazard
~Over every flight of stairs so each tread receives direct light
~Close to fire fighting equipment and call points
~Close to any first aid points
~Outside every final exit.
It is also recommended that some thought is given to providing external luminaires to guide evacuees away from the final exits. Additionally, BS 5266 puts additional emphasis on the importance of regular testing of emergency lighting equipment.
Emergency lighting is provided to enable normal activities to continue substantially unchanged.
