Ceiling light fitting - what is it?


Postby fire » Tue Dec 11, 2007 5:15 pm

Hello all.

I've just moved into a new place and need to replace a ceiling light fitting since it is clearly broken and the wires are exposed.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what the light fitting is called so I've been having trouble finding a replacement.

Basically, it's a normal ceiling rose (fed with ring cables and switch cable) but it seems to have an integrated light batten lampholder. I can either find ceiling roses or batten lamp holders online but not an all-in-one. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'd like to replace it with the same thing but otherwise I may change the style of lamp to a flush lamp, put a junction box in the roof and just feed one l/n/e cable to the lamp.

Many thanks!

sounds like a BATTEN HOLDER most are made like that now as opposed to the older BATTEN HOLDERS which were smaller and originally desighned to fit on conduit boxes, look on net at a mk 5144 whi and see if thats what you want, if so same or similar available at most wholesalers
