Your Guide to LED Bulkhead Lights

When looking to join the LED revolution, you might not know which type of LED light is best suited for your requirements.

To help make it easier to understand which type of light is right for your requirements, at LEDSave, we look to provide you with all the information and specifics you need to know.

A popular selection is the LED bulkhead. But why are these lights being bought and what benefits can they bring? Let LEDSave explain.

What is an LED Bulkhead?

LED bulkhead lights are named after the bulkhead fitting – a type of fitting that connects the light casing to a wall or surface. This tough, effective lighting option can withstand difficult weather conditions and busy spaces, making them perfect for outdoor and indoor lighting alike.

They might not be known for their exquisite designs or eye-catching glamour, but LED bulkhead lights are truly functional and effective.

An LED bulkhead light is a great way to take advantage of all the benefits of LED lighting and save on energy costs.

What type of LED Bulkheads are there?

Included in our range of LEDSave bulkhead lights is the 2D style bulkhead. Made with white or chrome polycarbonate, these lights have an IP rating of IP65. This is the rating system used to determine the penetration of solid objects or water into a fitting. An IP65 rating means this light can be used in indoor spaces like bathrooms and outdoor areas due to its anti-penetration design.

Our 2D LED bulkhead lights also come in a selection of options to help meet your specific needs. These include a microwave sensor, meaning the light will only switch on when there are people nearby. This means even less energy can be used than usual, saving owners cash.

There are also 3 hour emergency options for areas such as fire escapes, as well as a setting combining microwave sensor with 3 hour emergency.

These lights also have corridor functionality, meaning the light will only be in use when required and switch off when not.

Another popular selection is our 16W LED die-cast bulkheads. These are a modern outdoor wall light option, coming with a sleek aluminium casing and opal polycarbonate diffuser to help spread light equally across a space.

Featuring 36 x 0.5W LEDs, these LED bulkhead lights only consume 16W of electricity, but put out a massive 1700lm on use. This makes them a great option for people looking to save on energy bills.

We have a circular die-cast option, as well as an eyelid version which may favour certain spaces and requirements, such as parts of gardens that suit low lighting.

These LED round bulkheads come with three options – standard, microwave sensor and emergency. Microwave sensor means the light turns on automatically with movement, while emergency means an output of 120lm will continuously happen for three hours.

LED bulkheads with PIR are a popular choice at present. These feature an infrared PIR sensor that means the lights are activated by movement. If you are seeking efficient, movement-activated LED bulkheads lights for outdoor spaces such as gardens, side entrances or parts of your office, these 7W LED bulkhead outdoor wall lights fit the bill. With 140 degree beam angle and a dusk till dawn option, those wanting high-quality outdoor lighting have a great option here.

There are also LED wall packs with an internal 40 watt Phillips LED driver. This is a multi-faceted lighting option, with an aluminium fin heatsink to take heat away from the pack’s electronic components, while the Phillips LED driver increases the light’s reliability.

LED bulkhead lights are also a strong option when it comes to highlighting exit escape routes from a building. LEDSave has 4.5W LED Exit Bulkhead lights that come with 3 hour emergency settings and 4 self-adhesive legend decals. These are running man left, running man right, arrow and exit door. That means this light can be installed inside a building and decals can be added according to their position. There are maintained and non-maintained versions available, and these lights also have an IP65 rating, meaning they can also be used outdoors.
