A British LED brand that has set its reputation on quality – has earned top spot in the UK’s largest survey of spotlights. An Integral LED GU10 spotlight has beaten all competitors in a Which? survey, after being subjected to the most comprehensive test regime of its kind.
A range of LED spotlights were surveyed for reliability and performance across criteria that measured durability and efficiency over many months. The aim of the trial was also to validate manufacturer claims on beam angle, intensity, light quality, light output, and power consumption. Results from seventeen LED spotlights from leading manufactures saw Integral LED’s GU10 (5.3W, 50W equivalent) rise to the top of the chart – with the most accurate on pack product specification and with five stars for both efficiency and durability.
The Which? team commented: “…our Best Buy recommendation meet the claims on their packaging, won’t cost the earth to run, and should last for many years. But as well as this, they will maintain their light output, which not all spots do – so you won’t notice after two years that one of the spots in your ceiling is emitting a subtly different colour to the others..”
The GU10 range from Integral LED is manufactured from the latest LED technology and components to ensure superior light output and to offer excellent energy savings of up to 85% when compared to halogen equivalent products. Many UK homes have followed a trend for installing ‘clusters’ of down-lights in ceilings over recent years – especially in kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Switching to LED GU10s delivers maximum energy savings from the very moment the lamps are installed.
Commenting on the success of their LED spotlight Sunil Kotecha MD of Integral said, “We are thrilled that our hard work to provide quality has been acknowledged. Our customers benefit from our internal quality control, based at our London based Lighting Laboratory. A close working relationship with our overseas manufacturing partners is also crucial in order to deliver high standards of consistency.”
Integral LED GU10 range of spotlights are available from leading electrical wholesalers and online resellers including Amazon. They currently retails at around £5.00 – notably half the cost of the other leading brands listed in the survey.
