Modern Lighting
29-Oct-2014
By
, Bishopbriggs
"A modernised bathroom required up to date lighting and the Olave ceiling light fitted the bill. The first part of installing the light was straightforward. Having read the reviews about the glass shattering, I installed four 2W LEDs instead of the 25W halogen lamps provided, less power, less heat.
To complete the installation I, then, used some pva adhesive to secure the metal and plastic washer to the light before fitting the glass to the unit"

Very stylish
08-Jun-2013
By
, Buckinghamshire
"We really like the style of the light. very contemporary & unobtrusive.
It's a bit fiddly for changing the bulbs because the glass plate is resting on some plastic washers, which are a bit difficult to keep in place whilst trying to put the glass back.

Dust collector
07-Mar-2012
By
, St Albans
"I haven't had a problem with the glass cracking (it has been up for 6 months), but I have never known a light fitting collect so much dust.
The main problem is that you notice the dust on the inside of the glass when you turn it on, and within seconds the bulbs are too hot for you to clean it. Every time I turn the light on, I get reminded that I forgot to clean it when it was cold !!!!

Cracking Light!
08-Nov-2010
By
, Bucks
"Fitted two of these. Easy to install, good looks when on and off. However, after several weeks, one of the glass plates shattered, maybe due to thermal stress. Some of the glass pieces dangerously fell to the floor. Hopefully, it's a one-off fault."

"Bought two of these lights and fitted them at the same time.
The glass cracked on one of them after 6 months, but the other has been fine!"

Another one gone
22-Jun-2011
By
, Aberdeen
"You should think yourself lucky, Barney.
Mine lasted less than 2 days before cracking into several pieces. Fortunately all the pieces remained fixed to the light and did not land on the floor.
Looks excellent, but worringly unreliable. It got one star as this was the minimum I could give.
Screwfix have replaced, so we shall see how long it lasts.
