Are your lights dimmable?
Commercial Festoon Lights – Yes, all of our commercial festoon lighting kits come with dimmable LED globes. We sell our own 24v dimmers which have been fitted with male & female festoon connections so that you can easily add this to your kit. The dimmer comes with a remote control so that you can easily adjust the brightness of your kit. We don’t currently stock a dimming unit for our standard commercial festoon kit, although the globes can be dimmed, a dimming unit will need to be purchases elsewhere.
Festoon Party Lights – These are not dimmable.
Can the bulbs be replaced?
Commercial Festoon Lights – Yes! All of our commercial festoon belts are fitted with E27 lamp holders sockets. This means that if you would like to change your globes for any reason you can simply unscrew the globe and screw in your new globe in seconds.
Festoon Party Lights – No, these globes are moulded to the fittings and cannot be replaced. However, the LED bulbs are shatterproof and quite durable and have on average around 20,000 hours of life in them so you shouldn’t have any foreseeable issues.
