Working in a similar way to traditional incandescent bulbs yet using somewhat less energy, the bright colour rendering offered by halogen bulbs is ideal for where seeing in detail matters. These sturdy and durable bulbs come in all kinds of shapes and sizes here at Toolstation, with products from brand names you may recognise such as Meridian Lighting, Philips, and CED.
Halogen bulb types
Just as with LED and incandescent bulbs, there’s all sorts of different classifications when it comes to halogen bulbs. Those we stock include everything from G9 halogen capsule bulbs through to halogen spotlight bulbs, as well as both 78mm and 118mm standard linear halogen lamps that you’ll often find in wall lights.
Halogen bulbs give off a warm, vivid glow and reach full brightness almost instantly once they’re switched on. This makes them a great choice for wall fittings, and you’ll find linear halogen bulbs are made in two distinct sizes to fit these. Always check whether it’s the 78mm or 118mm bulb you need, but either way, you’ll find options of various wattage here at Toolstation with lifespans of 2,000 hours or more.
