You say running from existing wall socket. If you are referring to 13 amp socket you will need a fused connection unit before using to feed a lamp as the normal light fitting is only rated at 5 to 6 amp and 13 amp socket supply is in the main 32 amp.
By using grid switches you can include a dimmer and fuse in the same unit.
Thanks for the quick response. I'm actually drawing off a 5amp lighting socket, so I should be ok, no?
One quick follow-up...if I'm running the line along a finished concrete ceiling (unpainted), would you recommend self-adhesive trunking or conduit (or nothing at all)? Also, must I use a ceiling rose to remain compliant (the lamp includes a plastic connector)?
