Bulbs:

WHAT SIZE BULB DO I NEED?

First off you'll need to define whether you mean type of cap or size of glass. If you mean cap you'll need to look at the light fitting specification or simply at the lamp holders themselves if you already have the light. Below is a list and illustration of each bulb cap type:

  • Edison Screw (ES/E27)
  • Small Edison Screw (SES/E14)
  • Bayonet Cap (BC/B22)
  • Small Bayonet Cap (SBC/B15)
  • GU10
  • G9
  • R7s
  • G4
  • GU4
  • GU5.3
  • GY6.35
  • 2D
  • T4
  • T5
  • T8
  • T12
  • AR111

 

If instead you mean glass type then this could be a choice between the standard GLS shape bulb, Candle bulb or Golf Ball bulb. Some fittings require the smaller glass bulbs if the shade is particularly small or if it uses clip on shades which of course require a candle glass. Again check the specification of the fitting or look at the lamp holder to see which bulb type it requires.
