    Clothed in a neat metal shroud, this ES Lampholder has much more of a contemporary look to it than other models.

    With 8 finishes available it can be powder coated to any RAL colour if you need a quantity. (Contact us).

    That said, it may not be right for your particular job.

    I can tell you the good things, the bad things and show you how to wire it. 

    I want to help you make the right choice.



    What is this product?


    This is a lampholder. It is the bit of a light that holds the light bulb. This particular version mounts a hanging cable, bulb facing down. I have heard them referred to as bulb holders, sockets, fixtures, you name it.  Whilst it is a plastic lampholder under the metal cover, it does have an earth terminal. This is inside for use if preferred.




    Pros and Cons




    • Metal cover

    • Can use with 2 core flex, it is double insulated.

    • Easy to connect

    • Contemporary look





    • Doesn't hold a shade

    • Expensive compared to plastic lampholders)

    What light bulb does it take?
