Don’t worry, we’ll spare you the corny jokes and focus instead on what our products can do for you, your home, your energy bills and your carbon footprint.
LED lighting is still a fairly new industry and many people remain unsure about what it is and whether it has benefits for them. With our new website, we want to open this technology up to the average consumer, giving you the opportunity to purchase top-quality LED bulbs at the best possible prices, as well as providing support and information to our customers.
Our new site has just gone live and we’re offering a pre-Grand Opening special. With 40% off all products, including LED t8 tubes, LED spotlights, mr16 and gu10 bulbs, this is the perfect opportunity to stock up for all your lighting needs. We also offer free delivery on orders over £75.
You could be thinking that £75 is a lot of money to spend on light bulbs and in the old world that was true. But LED bulbs use 90% less electricity than traditional filament bulbs. As a result, they have a lifespan of over ten years. Contrast that with having to dash down to the supermarket every month or two to replace a blown bulb. So, even if you make a bigger single investment in our bulbs, over time you will save a huge amount of money. Not to mention avoiding the inconvenience and frustration of blown bulbs.
But why are LEDs so much more energy efficient? The traditional light bulb depends on a burning filament. That’s why most of us have burned ourselves on a blistering hot bulb at some point. In fact, although they’re described as light bulbs, the primary product of a traditional bulb is heat. Light is simply a by-product. That’s changed with LED lights. Previously, LED was only used for small light fixtures, such as watches, bedside clocks and displays on electronic appliances. The expansion of LED is a huge technological advance, with manifold benefits and tForce wants to share the benefits of the technology with the entire community.
The energy efficiency of LED bulbs reduces the amount that you have to spend on energy bills, which is essential in an era of rising power costs. They also allow you to make a contribution to reducing carbon emissions and have a greener household.
When discussing the potential of LED lighting, the primary concern we hear from consumers is aesthetic. We hear people worry that the lights will be duller, not provide the same quality of illumination, or fail to provide a flattering tone of lighting for their homes.
At tForce we appreciate these concerns and are committed to providing you with top-quality lighting that exceeds the standard of the traditional light bulb. We offer a range of different light fixtures to meet the needs of your home or office, including tube lights, spotlights, embedded ceiling bulbs and candle bulbs. We offer many different wattages and beam angles, as well as different tones, including warm, cool and soft lighting.
Since this is quite a new technology, mainstream stockists like supermarkets have not entirely made the change to LED lighting. The tForce online store can offer you a matchless range of products, all guaranteed to be of the highest quality. While we do encourage the DIY mentality, we’re also committed to having an excellent sales service. Our customer service team will be happy to advise you on what products are best suited to your needs, as well as sharing information about installation and maintenance.
If you are looking for a cool and directed white light source for your home or work, one that lasts much longer than old incandescent or fluorescent options, our wide range of cost-effective LED bulbs, Spotlight (MR16 & GU10) and T8 tubes offer a terrific alternative.
You can quickly add light exactly where you need it for that work project, relaxing hobby or your child’s homework. LED lighting also adds drama and atmospheric highlights to any room. For kinder and longer-lasting light solutions throughout your home or workplace, make the switch to our LED T8 tubes and bulbs. You’ll find all the information you need here tForce LED eStore
This is a term that’s now used widely and regularly, but how much do you actually know about LED lighting? LED stands for light-emitting diode which is then part of a bulb or lamp with a greater lifespan than that of the old incandescent lamps. LEDs providing white light also outlast most fluorescent lamps, whose longevity is also affected considerably simply by your switching them on or off, by a much higher multiple.
Using LED products
These are compact and especially good at providing a narrower beam of directed light, rather than simply throwing it out in all directions, they also usually include elements within them to assist with heat dissipation. In your home, you might find them terrific for reading or to help you focus specifically on detailed hobby activities such as needlecraft, jigsaws, model-making, and the like. For those times you are happy with a wider spread of light, LEDs with diffusers are usually a good answer. An alternative is a series of directed spotlights, often adding character to different areas of your room. This is one reason why you are increasingly likely to discover such products being used as light sources in museums, art galleries, and other public venues.
In the situation where fixtures are designed for fluorescent tube lighting, you might not be a fan of that specific style. The good news is that LED tube lights, often using several LEDs within the one tube, have been produced which can be used as replacements in many products, although it is wise to check with an expert before making changes to any of your current appliances.
A brief history to finish
The history of LED development is, unlike the product, slightly hazy in places. It has been reported that an assistant to Marconi published an article over a century ago covering some experimental findings. A couple of decades later, Russian scientist Oleg Losev, carried out more substantial research. No practical work appears to have been done following this, but, after the Second World War, the pace quickened. The first commercial LEDs were produced in the early 1960s. Nowadays, you’ll find them in everything from traffic signals to games consoles.
The next time you are looking for a cool and directional lighting source, not only will you appreciate why choosing LED products makes good sense, but do feel free to throw a casual fact or two into the conversation. SHOP LED Light NOW
- Optimal thermal conditions are essential to achieve long life and utilise LED light sources as efficiently as possible
- LED light source and driver have to match in order to obtain the highest light output
- Colour rendering has to be a least Ra>=80 to obtain the best reproduction of natural light
- The degree of colour variance (MacAdam’s factor) between each LED has to be as low as possible (SDCM<=3) for the most uniform colour experience
- A high lm/W gives a more energy efficient lighting solution and is a better efficiency indicator than light output ratio (LOR)
- The optical solution must be adapted to the LED light source for the highest possible efficiency and glare control
tForce Lighting can do all of the above.

- Components on the circuit board is often assembled by hand because its still too complicated for factory machines
- The actual LED wafer can cost as much as £5 a unit
- The brightest LEDs generate blue light. So in order to get the more natural white glow, manufacturers typically coat the bulb with yellow phosphor, an expensive rare earth metal compound imported from China
- LEDs additionally require the use of drivers to convert energy into electrical current. This component alone can cost up to £3
- Although LEDs burn cooler than Edison bulbs, they still need a conducting material to dissipate the heat. The aluminum used to accomplish this can cost as much as £2
Some newer technologies that bulb-makers are hope will help bring down the cost in due time, some of which include:
- Using larger wafers that would allow LEDs to be built.
- The production of green LEDs that when mixed with red and blue ones create white light.
- Smaller heat sinks that require less aluminum.
