Old Light Bulbs (Incandescent)

Recent years have seen the use of Incandescent Lamps phased out across most applications as new technologies have superseded them. Across the EMEA region, this has been driven by legislation based on the EU Ecodesign Directive, legislation that covers all energy using products sold in the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors. We have been at the forefront of this change, developing new technologies that operate with greater efficiency, less cost and less environmental impact than ever before. We invented Incandescent technology and we know how to replace it. Today, the requirements allow exemption for a limited number of Incandescent Lamp types and we continue to supply high quality products for these highly specialised applications:- Pygmy for oven, freezer and sewing machine • Infrared reflector • Low Voltage GLS • Coloured decorative lamps.

More than a century of research and development later, our current range of GE incandescent lamps represent state-of-the-art lamps for residential and commercial use, as well as special purpose lamps for decorative and display applications. Today's incandescent bulb houses a tungsten filament. When charged with electric current, the filament becomes white hot, and glows through a process called incandescence. Incandescent lighting is the most prevalent form of lighting today due to its flexibility and cost. Incandescent lamps are commonly available in a large variety of size, shape, colour and wattage offering a wide range of application opportunities from home lighting to medical and industrial uses.
