We cut, solder and join to you measurements on site in Bristol within a few days. Being a 12v tape we do not recommend any length to be longer than 7m in length, this can be overcome by running multiple lengths from the same driver to cover the area. Our tape is dimmable(when used with the correct driver) and we would recommend the Varilight Vpro range of dimmers to produce the best results. All our tape is IP65 which is ideal for commerical applications such as restaurants, cafes, clubs and pubs. These venues like to use the LED tape to light their drinks displays and the tape can be hidden in profiles to be more aesthetically pleasing. We have metal profiles available from Integral LED as well as a few others and these come in surface(flat or angled, recessed or plaster in recessed, We also stock the Orac range of surface wall profiles which are paintable and are used for indirect lighting to create mood lighting.

Industrial Style Lighting is one of the newer ways to decorate your home or business, It can introduce a new and exciting texture to the typical household surfaces we encounter, The rough and ready finish of concrete gives a hard industrial edge and captures a modern urban atmosphere. Steampunk metal finished fittings is another popular type, steampunk is based on pipework from industrial steam-powered machinery while the concrete fittings are a bit more modern. Concrete fittings are mostly pendants with Decorative LED's with a few wall and table lamps available. Our sister company Fraser Besant Lighting has produced a handmade Concrete Bezel for their downlight range, these downlights give you the primary lighting you need which a decorative LED doesn't give you while still keeping the industrial look.

Posted on: 12 Jun 2019. Category: Bathroom Fan specialists Bristol
A Bathroom fan, while not high on the list of items when redecorating, is one of the things that needs to have some thought put into it. Choose the wrong one and you'll be re-painting the ceiling or re-grouting quicker than you think. Here at Ablectrics we have been dealing with the biggest names for years. Airflow, Manrose, Xpelair and Vent Axia are all available and all provide us with the information needed to keep your bathroom moisture free. The majority of fans fitted in bathrooms are wall mounted 4 inch, Most have timers, some have humidity controls. The most common complaint about a fan is the noise level, this can be avoided though a number of fans and our most popular one are the Airflow Quietair QT100T and the Vent Axia Svara App controlled fan, both can be viewed on the links below.
If you want to avoid having a fan on the wall the alternative is a inline fan, these hide in the loft with a run of ducting leading to a small slim round grill on the ceiling(as well as another heading outside). With the fan not being in the room this keeps the noise even lower than the aforementioned quiet fans. Our best selling inline fan is the Airflow Aventa AV100T(the owner here has had one himself for over 6 years and loves it). The link can also be found below, the 3 fans mentioned are all timer fans, timer fans do require different wiring to non timer fans and we are happy to advise you on any queries you may have.
