Lampholder/ Light Bulb Standards

Philip Greenwood -

E27 is the most common type of Edison Screw base, It is often refereed to as just ES. The number ’27′ refers to the diameter. This type of base is also compatible with Compact Fluorescent Globes and LED globes. E27 is a 240 Volt bulb as is a standard Bayonet B22.

We also stock E14 SES 240 Volt bulbs and now E40 GES 240 Volt bulbs

Whilst we do stock 110 Volt E26 and E12 components for those countries that use that standard, not all bulb shapes are available.
