LED Battens

LED battens are long, rectangular lighting fixtures with integrated LED technology. They are designed to provide energy-efficient and uniform lighting in various indoor and outdoor settings.

Yes, LED battens are considered good lighting options due to their energy efficiency, long lifespan, and even illumination. They are a popular choice for replacing traditional fluorescent lighting.

LED battens typically have a lifespan of 25,000 to 50,000 hours or more, depending on the quality and usage. This makes them a durable and cost-effective lighting solution.

Yes, LED batten lights are cheap to run because they are highly energy-efficient, consuming significantly less electricity compared to traditional fluorescent lights.

LED batten lights produce very little heat, making them safe to touch and reducing the risk of overheating in enclosed spaces.

LED battens typically do not require earthing, as they are designed to be double-insulated and are considered Class II electrical appliances. However, always follow local electrical codes and manufacturer guidelines.

LED battens are generally considered better than fluorescent lights due to their energy efficiency, longer lifespan, and absence of hazardous materials like mercury. They also provide instant full brightness without flickering.

Yes, you can wire an LED batten to a plug if it is designed for plug-in use. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and consult an electrician if you are unsure about the wiring process.

Yes, LED battens are highly energy-efficient, consuming less electricity and producing less heat compared to traditional lighting technologies.

Installing an LED batten on the wall typically involves securing it to the wall with screws and wall anchors. Ensure that the electrical wiring is properly connected according to local regulations.

Installing an LED batten on the ceiling usually requires mounting it to the ceiling surface using appropriate brackets or fixtures. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for specific installation guidelines.

No, LED batten lights do not require starters. Starters are typically used with fluorescent lighting systems to initiate the discharge of gas inside the tubes, which is not needed in LED technology.

Connecting LED batten lights to mains power in the UK involves wiring them to the appropriate voltage and following local electrical regulations. It is recommended to hire a qualified electrician for installation.

LED battens are self-contained fixtures with integrated LEDs, while LED tube lights are designed to replace traditional fluorescent tubes in existing fixtures. LED battens are often more versatile and energy-efficient.

LED battens are generally brighter than fluorescent tubes of the same wattage, as they produce more lumens per watt and offer better light distribution.

The size of the LED batten you need depends on the area you want to illuminate and your specific lighting requirements. Consider factors like room dimensions and the desired brightness level.

A 6ft LED batten from Eterna Lighting typically consumes around 60 watts, but it's essential to check the product specifications for the specific model you are interested in.

A 5ft LED batten from Eterna Lighting typically consumes around 45 watts, but it's essential to check the product specifications for the specific model you are interested in.

Yes, many LED batten lights are designed to be linkable, allowing you to connect multiple fixtures in a series to create a continuous lighting solution.

LED batten lights come in various types, including standard, emergency, sensor-equipped (PIR), dimmable, and vapor-proof, each designed for specific applications and functionalities.

A twin LED batten refers to a type of LED fixture that consists of two separate LED batten lights integrated into a single housing. This design is often used to provide higher illumination levels.

The brightness of LED batten lights varies depending on their wattage and specifications. They can provide a wide range of lumen outputs to suit different lighting needs.

No, LED battens do not have a ballast because they do not require ballast components like fluorescent lights. They operate directly from the integrated LED driver.
