MR16, LED, 5w, cool white, 6,000 kelvin, 30 degree

Non dimmable


The 5w led lamp MR16LED5W provides a beam angle of about 30 degrees and is a good choice for step lights, ground spike lights, recessed down lights etc. The 5w LED is equivalent to a MR16 35w halogen lamp and will save in the region of 80% on electricity and will last up to 30,000 hours.

The 6,000 kelvins cool white colour is best suited to illuminating colder colours like white, blue, green etc and the warm white 2,700 kelvins is best suited to illuminate warm colours like red, yellow, purple etc.

Very cool white lamps can have a detrimental effect on local wildlife and insects at night as they are drawn to the cool colour spectrum. Bats are especially vulnerable to this kind of light source and as a protected species it is best to keep to the warm white spectrum where possible.

12 Volt Lighting systems are ideal for gardens and other outdoor areas and are usually very easy to install. There is such a wide range of 12v lighting available, from floodlights and spotlight, to path lights and even underwater lighting. LED retrofit lamps are ideal to reduce maintenance and energy bills.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

  

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees.  When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.
