Now Consumers Have a Real Choice of Styles and Sizes

If you thought that low-energy light bulbs only came in chunky globe shapes or strange spirals, think again. Megaman, one of the world’s largest low energy light bulb manufacturers, has launched a new range of bulbs offering a wide choice of styles, sizes and fittings. The company claim that they match conventional lightbulbs for size and shape, but offer energy savings of up to 80% and an operational life of around 15,000 hours - making them the perfect replacement for short-lived energy-guzzling incandescent types.

The new Decorative Range includes the Classic Series – consisting of compact ‘golf ball’ and “ping pong ball” types. These are available with both screw and bayonet fittings (all standard sizes), and offer power ratings from 4 Watts up to 20 Watts (equivalent to a conventional 100 Watt bulb). The ‘Golf Ball’ design is not only one of the most universally popular designs used in existing lamps and fittings, but in this low-energy version represents a technology breakthrough in terms of both size and durability. Delivering a classic warm-white illumination and delivering a life expectancy of around 15,000 hours, the ‘Golfball’ classic is compatible with just about any existing light fitting.

The range also includes the Candle Series, offering a perfect choice of replacements for all traditional candle shaped bulbs. These fit well into chandeliers, table lamps and decorative wall lamps. There is even a flame tipped version for use in flickering candle-effect fittings. Like the Classic Series, these candle types are available in a wide variety of bayonet or screw fittings, and power ratings of between 7 and 9 Watts.

Both the Classic and Candle Series feature a translucent protective coating of silicone around the bulb glass, providing added strength and making the bulbs much more difficult to break than conventional bulbs.

To round off the new offering, the range includes a wide selection of low energy reflector types called the Reflector Series. These incorporate the very latest in lamp tube technology, and are direct replacements for mains halogens and compact spotlamps with GU10 and screw-in base fittings. High luminous efficiency is maintained throughout life lamp, typically about 15,000 hours, making them ideal for display and art lighting, reception and living areas, corridors and offices. There are even some dimmable types.

A key feature of these reflector types is that they produce far less heat and UV radiation than conventional spotlights or halogens, making them much safer and less prone to over heating than conventional types. Low power consumption (7 Watts to 20 Watts) and extremely long operating life (15,000 hours) mean that they are particularly suitable for long periods of continuous operation.

All of the low energy bulbs in Megaman’s new Decorative Range use the latest in lamp technology to maximise lumen efficiency, reduce heat and prolong life. The lamps each contain less than 3mg of mercury, in a safe amalgam form, claimed to be an industry first. They are also built with recyclable solder-less bases which are rustproof, user friendly and environmentally responsible.

The range It is available from electrical wholesalers, lighting shops and various Internet suppliers throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as major DIY retailers like B&Q. Local suppliers and stockists can be found at Megaman's website.
