(PRWEB UK) 27 August 2013
The article, Trade Body Issues Phase-out Guide, published 22nd August in Lighting.co.uk, explains how the guide has been designed to help people understand the “complex” ECODesign regulations for lamps. It has been described that “predominantly the effects will be the transitions from less-efficient towards more efficient types within the same technology.” New regulations come into effect from September 1st and some of the products being phased out include architectural lamps with an S14s and S14d fitting, architectural lamps with a round peg fitting as well as DET strip lights with an S15 fitting.
The new regulations have already gained criticism with many complaining that the changes should be made clearer. However, the association has also published a Q&A document about the new regulations.
Providing a vast range of LED products online, the team behind LED Strip Lights co. were naturally eager to see the new guide. A representative from the firm reflects on the impact this is likely to have on the industry.
“At the moment, the changes are applying to only the least energy efficient lamps like low-voltage halogens. Customers are unlikely to notice much of a change, especially with so many people already making the transition to LEDs to save money on their energy bills. Hopefully the Q&A document will be useful to retailers who are currently unsure where they stand.”
LED Strip Lights co. is a leading LED company based in the UK. With a rapidly expanding collection of lights, the company provides both domestic and commercial LED lighting solutions, including LED transformers and drivers and LED strip light controllers. Using the latest LED technology, customers can make significant energy savings.
