All these products undergo a stringent set of quality control procedures in their own Lighting Laboratory.

The firestay LED Smart connect downlight is their newest downlight, giving you complete control of brightness and colour from your android or ios device. dimmable to 10% and colour varying from 2200k to 6300k every room can look exactly as you want it when you want it.


    LED Lamps

    Bell's LED lamps are all batch tested in their own quailty assurance facility with some of the test being cap torque tests, dimmer compatibility and photometric sphere tests. Giving you assurance the lamps are the most energy efficient units they can be. Dimming can be a tricky business, and because there are no standards in place for LED dimming, there is no guarantee that a certain lamp will work with a certain dimmer. Incompatibilities between lamps and dimmers can cause flickering, reduced dimming ranges, and can even cause damage and reduce the life span of the lamp. For these reasons Bell are dedicated to testing the lamps so that you know how they will perform on your dimmers, and will continue to update information. The lamps are compatible with most leading edge dimmers, but due to the variety and constant development of new units, not all suitable dimmers will be included. Hamilton, Varilight and Rako are just some of the manufacturers that work well.

    Electric Heating has 2 main types, portable and fixed. Fixed includes panel heaters and nightstores while portable includes fan, convector, halogen and oil filled. All electric heaters are considered to be 100% efficient as they convert all the power consumed into heat so there is nothing wasted but some are more expensive to run than others as they give more heat.

    Fixed Heating

    Panel heaters or also know as electric raidiators are wall mounted convection heaters which can be used as primary heating for a room, these heaters heat the air and have various sizes depending on room size. These are not to be confused with infrared panel heaters which heats objects as opposed to the air so you get warmer quicker. Infrared heater are more expensive to buy but more efficient.

    Nightstores are so called as they store up the electricity overnight(when its cheaper) and slowly release the heat during the day, This 'off peak' consumption would need a dual tariff account to use. You have 2 settings, one for how much you store overnight and the other for how much you want during the next day, Some models have timer and boost functions for extra control.

    Portable Heating

    Portable heating is exactly as it sounds as you just plug them into a socket and use them where you wish. You get 2 types which are radiant and convector, radiant gives you quick heat in a small area and are good for heating a person while convector will heat an area. Radiant heaters are halogen or fan heaters and generally do not have thermostat(to control them) while convectors and oil filled come under convector heating.

    Applications For The Home

    Mood lighting systems offer the user the ability to recall a scene, or mood of lighting at the touch of a single button despite controlling multiple circuits and lamp types. Circuits are split to define zones, highlighting room features and are programmed to suit the different uses of a space. To achieve this each lighting circuit has a simple inline receiver fitted. You can get them suitable for RGB tape, LED downlights, even non dimmable lights and blind control . These sit inline and control the lights. The mood controller holds up to 7 scenes which can be programmed and changed as you wish. The wall control sends a simple command to each reciver which then turns the lighting on/off or dims it to a preffered setting. It really is a clever and user friendly system that makes controlling multiple lighting circuits very easy. You can also get the buttons on the wireless mood control engraved so each one says the name of the scene, for example dining, party, garden, TV

    LED Tape Profile Stockists

    Posted on: 03 Jan 2020. Category: LED Tape Profile Stockists

    LED Tape Profile Stockists

    LED tape profile has a multitude of uses, The most common reason for buying it is for hiding the LED tape itself but is also a great way to pull heat away(heat sink) from the LED's to keep their lifespan. Another reason is to protect the tape from any accidental impact damage from tape situated in areas of traffic(underneath kitchen units). A final reason is to offer secondary lighting, whether it's a discreet shadow Gap profile or a simple angled profile we have you(and your LED tape) covered.

    There are 2 main types of LED profile, Aluminium and Paintable.Aluminium is practical and hardwearing and is great for furniture lighting such as cabinets or under counters. As Aluminium profiles have a diffuser that clips on top they are great at keeping the dust out, some are waterproof too for exterior use. Paintable profile is used for wall washing and decorative, We stock a range of the Orac decor profiles who specialise in this type. You can also use multple profiles together to create a shadow gap, this allows a small beam of light to emit and is great for cinema rooms, snugs or evening lounges. We recommend the use of a aluminium tape in the Orac profile to act as a heat sink. We have a lot of the profiles on display in our Bristol showroom as well as having a selection in stock to take away the same day. Need some help installing? We have a list of trusted Electricians that can help.

    LED Tape

    The LED tape itself comes in many variations, warm or cool white(colour changing can also be ordered) and different brightnesses(wattage per metre). We offer a bespoke service to be able to offer the lengths you need for any room as well as supplying suitable drivers for them. LED tape is an easy way to add extra light discretely to a room. Fit LED tape to the bottom of shelves, for example, to add a great warmth of light to a lounge. We always recommend warm white LED tape in lounges, dinning rooms and bedrooms, and a cool white LED tape for bathrooms and kitchens. The new LED tape now available can also be dimmed with using the correct drivers and dimmers. Our Bespoke LED tape is commercial and domestic suitable with an IP65 rating and a 3 year guarantee
