2. Pick Your Bulb

Now you know which bulbs you're replacing learn more about what your options are below.

Halogen replacements

If you’re replacing Halogen downlights you have two simple options, the Plug and Play Series and Luminaire Series:

plug & play series

The Plug & Play is perfect if you are replacing only your existing halogen downlight globes and not replacing your existing gimbals.

This is as simple as changing a light globe. There is no need to play with the power or remove the existing transformer. This can be done DIY.

luminaire series

The Luminaire is perfect if you are replacing the entire fitting including the lamp and gimbal. It is slimline and minimalistic blending into the roof line.

This can be installed DIY but if your existing downlights are not plug based and are hardwired you will require an electrician. Contact us if you need help with an electrician.

Cut Out Size

When choosing the Luminaire range you will also need to consider the cut out size. Generally most homes have a 90mm cut out. This is easy to identify. A 90mm cut out you can fit your hand into the hole. A 70mm cut out you can’t.

Colour

  • Choosing the colour of your lights is simple. EP Lighting Luminaires are available in warm white, cool white and Tri-Colour.
  • Warm white (3000k) is most common & the traditional colour of Halogen lights. It has a yellow glow that creates a softness particularly in living and dining areas.
  • Cool white (4000k) is a whiter light than warm white. This light is considered a more contemporary, modern look creating a more natural colour. Cool white is a mix of white and yellow light and not to be mistaken with Daylight (6000K) which is much whiter.
  • Tri-Colour (3000k, 4000k & 6000k). If you’re unsure you can also select the ‘Tri-Colour’ option which is a Luminaire that allows you to change colour temperatures to the colour that best suits your needs at the flick of a switch.
