Navigating the New Energy Ratings: The Universal LED Gear Tray's Impressive Performance Under Stricter EU and UK Regulation

The Universal LED gear tray with an Energy rating of B is quite impressive given the current stringent regulations. The latest regulations in both the EU and UK have redefined energy labels for lighting products to enhance clarity and encourage better energy efficiency. These regulations, known as the Single Lighting Regulation (SLR) and the Energy Label Regulation (ELR), replaced older systems and now rate products on a scale from A to G, with A being the most efficient.

Previously, many LED products were rated as A++, but under the new system, these same products might now be rated B or C due to the recalibration aimed at promoting further innovations in energy efficiency. This recalibration ensures that there is room for future advancements and more efficient products to enter the market.

Additionally, these regulations also push for a circular economy approach, where products are designed to be more reliable, upgradeable, and easier to repair and recycle. This not only improves the product lifecycle but also reduces environmental impact by minimizing waste.


For more detailed information on these regulations, you can refer to the full documentation on the European Commission’s website or the UK government’s legislation page.

Versatile and Adjustable for Optimal Lighting

The Universal Gear Tray stands out with its adjustable power and colour temperature settings. This versatile feature not only helps wholesalers and retailers save valuable storage space but also provides users with unparalleled flexibility and adaptability. 

By switching to the multifunctional version of the Universal Gear Tray, users can easily select the desired colour temperature (warm light at 2700K, white light at 4000K, or daylight at 6500K) and adjust brightness levels (14W, 15W, 17W, or 19W) to create the most comfortable lighting environment for any indoor space. 

This customisation capability ensures that the lighting can be tailored to suit specific needs, enhancing the overall user experience.

Advanced Compatibility and Exceptional Longevity


Thanks to our innovative 4-way fit system, the Universal Gear Tray is compatible with Fern Howard’s round bulkheads and a wide range of bulkheads available in the market. 

This compatibility ensures that our customers can easily integrate the gear tray into their existing systems without the need for extensive modifications. For comprehensive details and technical specifications, please refer to the product datasheet.

Extending Product Lifespan: The Universal Gear Tray's Role in Sustainability

In our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of solid waste, we focus on extending the lifespan of our products. The new Universal Gear Tray is designed with aluminium PCBs, providing excellent heat dissipation that significantly extends the product’s lifespan. This ensures it meets the highest standards among similar products, boasting an impressive lifespan of up to 50,000 hours (L80). 

This longevity translates to fewer replacements and reduced waste, aligning with our sustainability goals and contributing to a greener planet.
