These compact and convenient lights fit flush to the wall to save on space without compromising on light performance. Shop our range of bulkhead lights below, including wall lights and ceiling lights and a range of models designed for indoor or outdoor use.
Compliant Bulkhead Lights
Bulkhead lights are designed to be moisture, impact and corrosion resistant – making them perfect for use in the bathroom as well as outdoors around the home.
We stock a range of models with IP64 and IP65 ratings, meaning they are completely dust-tight and can withstand moderate water jets from any direction. So, you can enjoy consistent performance with peace of mind, whatever the environment or weather. However, this doesn’t take away from performance, with many of our models coming with powerful LED bulbs, as well as a frosted finish for a warming glow without the glare.
Outdoor Security Lights
Outdoor bulkheads make the perfect security light for the front of your home or your garden.
We stock a range of models with built-in PIR sensors to detect heat and movement – illuminating the area around your home when you have unwanted visitors. This is also a convenient feature to help you move safely around your home at night.
Plus, we offer a range of bulkheads that come with durable and protective wire cages attached – providing the perfect impact-resistant lighting solution for high-traffic areas in or around the home, such as in garages or poolside.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are the three types of bulkhead lights?
Three of the most popular types of bulkhead lights are surface-mounted bulkheads, semi-recessed bulkheads and eyelid bulkheads. Surface-mounted bulkheads are typically used for general illumination, while semi-recessed models tend to be more subtle and decorative. Eyelid bulkheads are designed to reduce upward light glare by only emitting light from the bottom half.
Are bulkhead lights waterproof?
Yes, bulkhead lights are designed to be waterproof and weather-resistant. However, the exact level of resistance depends on the IP rating of the model. Many bulkhead lights come with an impressive IP64 or IP65 rating, meaning they are able to withstand exposure to dust and water – making them perfect for use in the bathroom or even outdoors.
How do you change the bulb in a bulkhead light?
Bulkhead lights are one of the easiest models to install and maintain, and changing the bulb is a simple process. First, switch the power off. Next, remove the screws or clips securing the cover, before removing the old bulb. Replace it with a new one of the same type and wattage and reattach the cover securely.
