All too often electricians find it difficult to see the bubble in spirit levels when installing socket outlets in the floor. They may also leave unsightly edges when marking positions due to bubbles shifting as they mark lines. The Wiha electrician's spirit level now puts an end to such problems. Users can see its bubbles perfectly, even from a sharp angle. The spirit level also allows electricians to mark out lines without needing to stop thanks to an end-to-end casing. The ingeniously positioned linear scales ensure users can measure in comfort, even when viewing from above. The variable distance marks for up to four flush socket boxes bring another advantage to electrical installation work. The sliding marking points for boxes allow the spirit level to be adjusted to the marking distances required by local regulations. This means the level can be used in a wide variety of situations, even on an international level. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it is also perfect for portable use and can be stored away in the Wiha electrician's case.
What's important when choosing a suitable light bulb?
The type of light bulb is mostly end user choice however LED and CFL offer energy savings, for example: a 5W LED Bulb is equal to approximately a 40/45W Incandescent Bulb. LED is particularly useful where a light fitting requires a very low maximum wattage bulb. We recommend LED Light Bulbs for all applications and any light fixture with a removable light bulb is suitable for an LED Type Light Bulb.
Have a look at the most popular light bulb shapes, some shapes are purely for cosmetic purpose whilst others are shaped to fit within a lampshade:
Each Light Fixture will state a 'cap' or 'base' which will resemble one of the below (among other types):
The most common light bulb base types in the US are E26 and E11 although there are many more available with just a few shown in the diagram above.
At ideas4lighting we import light fittings from around the world including European designs which are suitable for use in the US but use a different range of cap types specific to Europe, for this reason we don't stock light bulbs but we recommend you purchase your light bulbs from Amazon.
Below we have outlined the EU Base Caps and the recommended solution for use in the US:
When purchasing a light bulb please ensure you purchase for the American Voltage (110V-120V).
