LED GLS (A60 & A67) Light Bulb


Often referred to as a standard lamp, the GLS lights are some of the most recognisable bulbs due to their traditional pear shape, which hasn’t changed much over the years. LED GLS light bulbs are increasing in popularity as they are able to be retrofit replacements for their halogen counterparts and come in both Bayonet and Edison Screw Caps.

LED GLS light bulbs are available in two different sizes, these being A60 and A67, with the numbers in these sizes being associated with the diameter of the lamp. The former of these is an extremely popular fixture in homes as well as retail and commercial premises. These LED Bulbs are incredibly versatile and consequently, can be used in a variety of different fixtures such as lamp shades, ceiling lights and wall light fittings. When it comes to the design of the bulb, these can be in the form of frosted, clear or filament bulbs, with each one helping to match any room’s decoration.

These lamps are commonplace when it comes to living room lighting as most of the light fittings for this room are designed to seamlessly accommodate its 60mm diameter. In addition to this, these GLS Light Bulbs are not restricted to domestic use and can offer a decorative lighting solution in hospitality settings where these lamps will look good; both switched on and off.
