LED GLS (Classic Shape) Light Bulbs

The incandescent GLS light bulb was the mainstay of domestic lighting for many years. Since the ban on these energy wasting lamps came into force it has been difficult to find an energy saving alternative for the traditional Classic Shape. These LED GLS light bulbs are a direct retrofit replacement for a conventional incandescent GLS lamp, with all the benefits LED lighting has to offer. LED GLS bulbs come with colour temperatures varying from 2700K Very Warm White to 6500K Daylight, Opal or Clear finishes and in dimmable or non-dimmable versions.

What is a LED GLS bulb?

An LED GLS is the direct replacement for previously used incandescent GLS bulbs. With standard GLS bulbs being phased out, many people were left wondering what they could use to keep there lighting functional and bright. Fortunately, BLT Direct offer direct LED replacements, that not only maintain the lumen output of incandescent bulbs but are more energy efficient and longer lasting. Using between 4-14 watts of electricity (40 to 100 watt incandescent equivalents) these classic shape bulbs instantly reduce energy consumption by up to 90%. Add to this the 25,000 hour lamp life, which minimises lamp replacement costs, and you have an extremely cost effective energy saving light source with the familiarity of the traditional GLS shape. The GLS LED is ideally suited to domestic and commercial applications where a soft, subtle light output is required.

What does GLS mean?

A GLS bulb is a common light bulb that can be found in numerous light fittings across a range of applications. Typically utilising a E27 or B22 cap base, these multi purpose bulbs can be used in bedrooms, in table lamps and even outdoors. The term GLS is an acronym for 'General Lamp Shape', this refers to the traditional shape and look of the bulb, the classic look that comes to mind when one thinks 'light bulb'. LED GLS bulbs are now available, a modern refresh of a staple in domestic lighting.
