Great service installing lights, problem solving and replacing sensors at Inch Park Community Sports Club.
Committee member, Inch Park
I asked for a quote to have communal lights fixed and the light timer to be put back into a correct sequence after power cuts left it all over the place. I received a quote very quickly and it was a very good price. The work was carried out very soon after the invoice was paid and all contact had with the company was very good. Brilliant job and brilliant customer service. I shall use this company again and recommend them to anyone who needs an electrical job done.

The work which was done was to replace 4 existing gear trays to the existing fittings for lighting the common stair in an Edinburgh tenement. The work was done to a high standard and did not disturb the existing decoration nor damage the existing wiring. They provided a much brighter and more efficient way of lighting the common stair.
Common questions about Stair Lighting
You can see some common questions asked by our customers, if you cant find the answer you are looking for give us a call where one of the team will be happy to help.
Since 2016 the Edinburgh Council regulations have changed and you, the homeowners within the tenement, are fully responsible for the stair lighting.
Yes, you could replace the bulbs yourself but you require a special tool to access the light casing and then you would be responsible for ensuring they are up to a safe standard.
In typical Edinburgh tenement stairs some of the light bulbs will need replaced each year or so. The most cost-efficient way going forward would be to undertake an LED Conversion to the existing light units which will ultimately reduce your ongoing maintenance costs over the lifespan of the lights (as you are not having to organise a relamp every so often). LED bulbs will typically last for 20-50,000 hours (let’s call that around 15-years based on 8-hours per night).
Yes, definitely. The choices are to have a replacement with a conversion kit (we use the coughtrie sfb 16 as Coughtrie lights have traditionally been installed in Edinburgh stairs) or a complete new fitting. Somewhat surprisingly a complete new fitting is actually the lower cost option (but if it is different sized then rewiring might be required). Like all good questions the answer is ‘it depends!’
In most stair lighting in Edinburgh a Sangamo astro dusk till dawn time clock is used and many of these are coming to the end of their life span. If they become faulty, Ideal recommend installing a Sangamo suntracker 7-day digital timer clock – the benefits include that it changes the times automatically throughout the seasons and when the clocks go forward and back.
