Just need the oversized light fitting the transformers I have will you sell separate and if so price please.
We are currently using mains powered 240v gu10 LED bulbs. We would like to be able to re-use these downlight convertors.
To replace eyeball recessed lights is it just a matter of turning power off, pulling them out, and wiring these new ones in the same way?
These have been taken down by my decorator how can they be refitted?
Do you do adjustable versions of these downlight converters?
Hi could you recommend a ceiling down light similar to this in white, which is fire rated, for insertion into a wood panel ceiling with 110mm cut outs, thanks
Our kitchen ceiling has two layer of plasterboard totalling about 24mm deep. Will the spring clips work over that thickness?
Are these lights suitable to be fitted in a bathroom.
I have a client who has a downlighter above shower but the fitting has come loose and the hole is now too big for it so I need to replace with a larger product such as this. Is this suitable to be used above a shower and if not, do you have one that is.
Need to replace three spotlights in my kitchen that are tiltable with a 90mm hole.
Can LED MR16s bulbs be used instead of the standard MR16s bulbs that come with the kit?
Are these lights suitable for bathrooms?
I am interested in replacing existing R80 lights using the 12v converter kit but am concerned about low light levels. I notice your earlier answer to a query regarding the Phillips masterline AR111 45w which are equivalent to 100w R80- could these be supplied as a converter kit too?
What is the angle of the light that is supplied by default with the fitting.
Does this include a transformer? if not which one would be suitable and are these easy to fit for a diy`er
I am looking to replace two old low voltage downlights which work off one transformer, I take it these lights will work in the same way, not 1 transformer for each light?
I`m replacing some large mains downlights in a Kitchen and the cut outs are 143-145mm, you mention grip fill can be used for slightly larger holes, do you think this will be feasible with the limited overlap I have to play with? Or if I fix some strips of wood/plasterboard inside the cutout to reduce the width effectively making an oblong inner hole, will the springs be able to grip against that?
So, does a cut out of 140mm mean that this is suitable for a hole up to 140mm please? Therefore suitable for a hole size 130mm?
I want to replace some R63 downlighters. These have a ceiling cutout of just over 70mm and an outside diameter of around 100mm. Will these converters fit into this size hole without further cutting?
We currently have 3 R80 downlighters in our kitchen extension (22 foot long)with 100w bulbs in. Would replacing them with 3 12v downlight converters give off the same light?
I need to replace 6 x R80 eyeball fittings in a single story kitchen extension. Which is the most economical system with the best light output - your mains converter with 6 watt led lamps or the 12v version?
Can you recommend a dimmer to control 6 of these units?
I have 6 old R80 units in my kitchen that I wish to replace. I would like to use a system more economical on power, therefore possibly 12v. I want to make it dimmable so that I can adjust the light levels. Does each lighting unit come with an individual electronic transformer or do you put in one transformer for the entire circuit? How much more efficient is the 12v system? Does the transformer produce heat / fire hazard? How difficult would it be to introduce 2 circuits to dim sections separately?
I am thinking of replacing my old R50 eyeball fittings in my kitchen/diner as I have had a new kitchen fitted and one eyeball is now too close to the top of the units. Will the GU10s that come with the fitting have a lower heat output? Also would I be able to replace the GU10s with dimmable LEDs in the future? I see there are few dimmable LEDs on the market right now and they are very expensive. I currently have 14 fittings on two dimmers.
I need to replace some old R80 eyeball fittings installed in the bedrooms of my house. However, the positions are quiet random with only three in the two larger rooms and two in the small room. The ceiling hieghts are only 2445mm hight. I was thinking of using the converter 12v kit to replace these lights but I am concerned that where the original eyeball lights are directional the replacement lights will not give as much light? Please advise if this fitting is convenient for my use and if not please could you recommend an alternative fitting that would fit into the 130mm cut out size left from the R80 fittings?
I want to replace four R80 downlighters with four downlight converters in 12v. Am I correct in assuming I will only get the equivalent of half the light output from the replacement downlighter?
Are these lights dimmable?
I have a number of old style mains powered downlighters to replace. Can you confirm the offered product is complete with transformer and bulb on a per light basis.
I have four downlights in my kitchen, which need to be replaced. Having removed one I have a 100mm diameter hole. Would your downlight converter be suitable? Also would I need the converter option as to my knowledge there are no converters on the current ones.
