The last stage of the EU legislation banning halogen lamps comes into force on 1st September 2018. However, the last stage only relates to eco-halogen lamps for use in general lighting applications!
Halogen lamps from the entertainment sector, such as PAR56, PAR64 halogen lamps; high-voltage halogen lamps with for example GX9.5, GY9.5, GY16, G22, G38 fittings; HPL lamps; FastFit halogen lamps etc. are not affected.
The following halogen lamps are affected:
- Halogen Classic with E14/E27 fitting in incandescent bulb, candle and globe form
- Halogen Pin Base Lamps with EEL < B and/or lifetime < 2,000h
- Halogen lamps with B15d/E27 base tube/tubular shape
Consequently there is no need to replace or decommission existing floodlights! We will continue to supply you with all needed halogen lamps for theatre, stage etc.
