These are the rest of the Visual Comfort designers who have or will be considered to have lighting that is wired for 230V and for use in the UK.
Visual Comfort & Co. knew that by launching their UK office, Visual Comfort Europe, they could more readily provide the lighting that many designers were already importing, and establish the growing interest in their ranges here in the UK and into Europe.
Their lighting is sold through carefully selected distributors – like us – to the design industry, through some independant retailers with showrooms and direct to some high volume specifiers.
Orange Lighting organise the procurement of larger quantities of Visual Comfort Lighting for UK & EU hospitality and residential projects. Typically working with the specifier and interior designer, we help specify the lighting schedule with full quotation to suit the evolving design and oversee the deliveries on behalf of our clients.
Stocked products for UK mainland addresses vary between a few days and a week once paid for, depending on the volume of orders currently being processed. Product is constantly on it’s way into the UK to fulfil current orders and to replenish stock, so if an item isn’t immediately available it could well be only a matter of weeks away.
Since 1987, Visual Comfort have been a premier resource of signature designer decorative lighting based in the USA. Visual Comfort are lighting manufacturer’s with their head office in the USA and a European office based here in the UK.
The majority of the lighting ranges are designed in the USA and manufactured overseas. The range encompasses high quality materials made and forged to exacting standards. The destination country of a particular order will determine how the product is wired.
Visual Comfort have a lighting range specifically wired and CE certified for UK and EU use at 230V. This is mainly done at the point of manufacture and brought directly into the UK from Asia.
Lighting for use in the USA will be wired for 110V with the UK and EU requiring 230V.
However, Visual Comfort lighting sold in the UK is ready for use at 230V but if you wanted to use an american lighting fitting in the UK then yes it can but only if it has been rewired to suit the European voltage and be careful to ensure it has been done to suit CE standards.
Visual Comfort’s full range of lighting is currently only available wired for the USA at 110V. A large proportion of the range including the most popular product lines are selected for the UK and EU market, wired at 230V and held in small batched quantities here in the UK.
As not all the Visual Comfort range is stocked for the UK, so you may find a light fixture only available in the USA that you know will be perfect for your project. On a case by case basis only, any light from the full range stocked in the USA can be investigated into to see if it can be rewired for UK & EU use. Any rewiring is chargeable and will be subject to air freight and duty costs plus the usual UK delivery cost.
Online access to Visual Comfort through us will show you everything available to a UK customer. The only way to see the entire range would be to visit other american website’s that carry their ranges.
There are so many light fixtures in the range that look perfect for bathrooms but can they be used over a sink or near a shower? EU and UK regulations state that a lighting fixture must be IP44 rated if installed within Zone 2, which is a 600mm radius over a sink or within 600mm of a shower or bath or within 2.25m over a bath or shower with a fixed shower head or IP65 if the shower has a directional shower head.
American and EU regulations differ for the protection against the ingress of moisture into an electrical product such as a light fitting. Visual Comfort’s UK bathroom styled lighting is not suitable for use in Zone 2 of a bathroom without further upgrading to an IP44 rating, which thankfully is a service offered by Visual Comfort here in the UK.
IP65 upgrades are not available.
Once logged into the website you will see that typically suitable light fixtures for bathrooms may carry a notice that they are also available to be upgraded to IP44. This will be done here in the UK prior to delivery and carry’s a surcharge per lampholder.
For example, a small version of a light fixture will have 1 qty lampholder but a Medium and Large size contain 2 qty lampholders. It will cost more to upgrade the larger sizes.
Access to a product page is made once logged into the Visual Comfort website. Login details can be found here and will be given immediately once you have registered for online access.
Looking at the Columns within the Availability Table on the product page:
Spec Sheet: Every product has its own data sheetwhich includes a dimensioned drawing of the light. Log into the website and on the bottom right of each product page you will see a
CAD Block: For your convenience each product has a scaled outline drawing available as a file which can easily added to your CAD software – to save you the effort of trying to quickly draw your own version.
The shipping weights and carton measurements are available from the Visual Comfort product page. Use the combined carton weights as an estimate of the whole product weight for installation guidance.
Orange Lighting have been designers and suppliers of lighting to the interior design industry and discerning homeowners since 2003. Our owner Andrew Orange has over 25 years of high end lighting supply experience including working for a bespoke lighting manufacturer based in London’s Chelsea Harbour.
Orange Lighting are a major independent distributor and supplier of Visual Comfort Lighting to the UK retail and design sectors. We are trusted by many within the London interior design community to arrange the supply of their lighting schemes who have increasingly favoured the growing range of lighting as a refreshing injection of brave modern classical style to the UK interior design scene.
All interest in Visual Comfort Lighting is welcomed.
Circa Lighting in the USA have been seen as the retail face of Visual Comfort as their website has a similar look and carries alot of the range, but they are just distributors like us.
If you are looking for Circa Lighting UK then much of the lighting found on their website is actually made by Visual Comfort from which a large selection is available wired for the UK and EU.
If you find a product on Circa Lighting then send us the product code and name and we will see if it is available for the UK through Visual Comfort. If only available in the USA it may be possible to rewire it for UK use.
Confusion continues between these two companies as there is a showroom in London that displays some Visual Comfort product which we of course supply direct too.
The name “Circa Lighting” will be familiar to those who love the clean, modern looks of today’s lighting. This is due in part to Circa’s origins as a spin-off from Visual Comfort Lighting when in 1998 when Gale Singer, who once worked for VC, began her own independent retail facing company.
Visual Comfort describe some of their table lighting as ‘french wired’, so just what is this method of wiring and is it suitable for use in the UK?
A French Wired Lamp is a light fixture, usually a table light, that has the power cable entry directly into the side of the lampholder at the base of bulb rather than a hidden internal route up through the base. A french wired style of connection has the electrical cord hanging loosely down the outside of the light fixture and is an acceptable method for UK use. For example, AERIN’s Cannes Table Light below is french wired as the base is clear glass.
This allows for a tidy loose electrical power cord to enter the backplate of the wall light, with the fixture plugged into a 13 amp wall socket. UK use of this style is largely not accepted so if a product is seen with a solid rod cable entry it will most likely not be delivered with it in the box.
Most decorative lighting manufacturer’s rely upon the basic technology of lampholders so the choice of LED as a light source is down to the owner. However, linear shaped light fixtures do look better with linear light sources as they evenly illuminate a diffuser rather than have lighting hot spots typically seen from lamps in lampholders.
Visual Comfort do have some dedicated LED linear sources of light in their new products but be careful if the product needs to be dimmed once installed. Always check to see if a dedicated LED source in a light fixture has a dimmable power supply and ensure it is compatible with the projects dimming system.
