MY ELECTRICIAN SAYS I NEED SPECIAL DOUBLE INSULATED LIGHTS AS I DO NOT HAVE AN EARTH CABLE WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Your electrician is quite right, you will need to select what are called double insulated lights (may also be referred to as Class 11 or Class 2 lights). Quite a lot of older properties built before or during the 1960's may not have an adequate earth cable. Double insulated lights have 2 layers of insulation built in toprotect the live parts. It is possible to have your house re-wired by your electrician but this can be expensive, so the other solution is to select double insulated light fittings. The Lighting Company has a great choice of double insulated lights. Check out our selection by clicking on these links.
