MR16 LEDs Are Safe, Functional & Aesthetically Pleasing
MR16 LED light bulbs, like their halogen counterparts, offer precise centre beam intensity and control as they have multidimensional reflectors that produce focused beams of light. This results in well-lit spaces that are great for aesthetic and functional purposes in both home and commercial settings.
Safe and easy to use. MR16 bulbs are a popular choice in spaces with high water concentrations, such as kitchens and bathrooms, due to their lower voltage, since they are a considerably safer lighting alternative.
Our MR16 bulbs are available in a range of shapes, beam widths, light colours, efficiency, and luminous output. Whether you are searching for bulbs for your home or a business environment, explore our range to discover how our MR16 bulbs can help save you a substantial amount of money.

MR16 LED FAQs
Why are LED bulbs better?
There are many reasons why switching to LED bulbs are beneficial for you and your wallet. The main advantage is their exceptional energy-saving capabilities. LED bulbs are far superior to halogen and incandescent bulbs since they have the greatest energy class ratings and a substantially longer average lifespan. Simply upgrading from halogen to LED MR16 lights can result in a 90% reduction in energy consumption, resulting in considerable savings on your utility bills.
What is an MR16 light bulb?
MR is an abbreviation for multifaceted reflector, which is a pressed glass reflector having facets on the inside and a reflective coating on the exterior. By gathering light from the bulb and focusing it into a focused beam of light, these facets offer optical control. MR16 bulbs are a type of spotlight and are one of the most frequently used spotlights in both businesses and residential environments. They are characterised by their fitting, which consists of two straight pins, and are the low voltage (12V) variant of the mains voltage GU10 (240V).
Are MR16 bulbs ceasing to exist?
The UK government adopted laws restricting the use of halogen light bulbs, including 12-volt halogen MR6 bulbs, effective September 1, 2021. Although the original halogen MR16 bulb is being phased out, it has been rebuilt in LED format. Moving from Halogen MR16 light bulbs to LED is a straightforward operation because most LED light bulbs are now designed to match existing light fittings. Simply remove the old light bulbs from the fixture and replace them with new, powerful light bulbs.
What is the difference between MR16 bulbs and GU10 bulbs?
An MR16 lamp is also a two-inch-diameter multifaceted reflector bulb, and a GU10 is a ceramic bi-pin twist-to-lock mount. Regardless of the fact that the GU10 and MR16 are the two most common types of spotlights, these bulbs can be differentiated by their fitments. The base of an MR16 bulb has two thin pins, whereas the pins of a GU10 bulb have two lugs at the end. Another distinction is the voltage at which they operate. GU10s operate on 240v, which is the same as mains energy and means you can simply plug them in and go. MR16s, on the other hand, operate on 12 volts and often require the use of a transformer to convert 240 volts to 12 volts.
Where can I use MR16 bulbs?
MR16 bulbs are most widely used in integrated fixtures and fittings, particularly in kitchens, where they are frequently installed under cooker hoods and cupboards. However, when selecting lighting for a specific space, it’s worth paying attention to the level of warmth the bulbs pose. For example, cool white bulbs are ideal for environments that require more clinical lighting, such as hospitals, whilst warm white bulbs are ideal for more gentle applications, like bedrooms and living areas.
