The Lampada 12W LED Downlight is the latest premium-grade LED downlight to be released exclusively by Lampada. What makes this downlight so unique comes down to the fact that absolutely no corners have been cut in the entire design and manufacturing process. This downlight is truly built from the ground up.
Premium LED Technology & Materials
At the heart of it lies the latest 12W COB LED, powered by a highly reliable LED driver and protected by a premium die cast aluminium frame.
Advanced Heat Dissipation
A large aluminium heat sink is used to keep heat level to a minimum, thereby siginificantly prolonging the life of the downlight.
IP44 weatherproof rating helps keep Australia's harsh elements away from polluting the downlight and ensure many years of reliable performance. This downlight is suitable for bathrooms and outdoor sheltered areas such as porches.
Another excellent feature of this downlight is the recessed anti-glare frame design and anti-glare lens. This anti-glare technology will significantly reduce glare and provide a comfortable viewing experience.
Our electricians recommend Surface Socket Outlets for ease of replacement and warranty purposes.

How to Choose the Right LED Downlight
- DO YOU HAVE EXISTING CUTOUTS?
If you have existing cutouts in the ceiling, we recommend choosing a downlight with the same cutout size. Having to resize existing cutout holes can be an expensive exercise. Consider pairing a downlight with downlight extension plates to accommodate larger cutout sizes.
If there are no cutouts in your ceiling yet, then you are free to choose whichever downlight that suits your requirements. The most common cutout size for LED downlights is 90mm.
- BUDGET LEVEL
Build quality has a real world impact on the performance and longevity of the downlight. A low budget downlight will undoubtedly have compromises in build quality, and this is often manifested in features such as plastic frame, plastic heatsink, low grade LED chip and driver. A premium downlight is most certainly made of aluminium frame and heatsink, as well as durable external LED driver and high quality diffuser.
- BRIGHTNESS LEVEL
The lumens output measures the total light output of the downlight. The higher the rated lumens output, the brighter the downlight will appear. How do we determine how much brightness will be sufficient for a space? The answer depends on the height of the ceiling, the room size, and the number of lighting points available in the room. We recommend choosing a downlight will a higher rated lumens output as you can always use a dimmer to bring the brightness down to your desired level.
- COLOUR TEMPERATURE
Colour temperature refers to the colour characteristics of the light, which is usually referrred to as warm (yellowish) or cool (blueish). Colour temperature is measured in Kelvin - the lower the Kelvin, the warmer the light; the higher the Kelvin, the cooler the light.
- Warm White: Less than 4000K
- Cool White: More than 4000K
- BEAM ANGLE
Beam angle simply refers to the spread of light from the light source. Downlights with wide beam angle creates a wider, softer light which is suitable for general ambient lighting. On the other hand, downlights with narrow beam angle produce a sharper, concentrated light which is ideal for accent lighting.
A common misconception is that the area outside the stated beam angle would be “dark,”. This is not the case as useable light will still fall outside the stated beam angle. This is important to understand when choosing beam angles. Wide beam angle is not "better" than narrow beam angle. There are specific applications that prefers one over the other. i.e. Tasks such as food preparation and home offices will require more intense light than other ares of your home. A narrower beam angle will produce significantly more usable light on the working surface. On the other hand, wide beam angles will produce a far more uniform coverage for open areas, thus avoiding the "hot spots" common with narrow beam angle downlights.
- FIXED/GIMBLE FRAME
A gimble frame allows you to adjust the direction of the light, which is useful in situations such as highlighting a wall art, or directing the light to the kitchen tabletop. Otherwise, stick to fixed frame downlights as they are usually cheaper and well-suited for general purpose lighting.
- DIMMABLE OR NON-DIMMABLE
Downlights can either be dimmable or non-dimmable. Dimmer switches can be added to dimmable downlights to control its level of light output. The dimming feature is very useful whenever the surrounding lighting has a strong effect on our entertainment or relaxation experience. The dimmer gives us the flexibility to turn the downlight on maximum capacity when we need to see clearly and turn down whenever we need to relax. Imagine your last experience at the cinema and the crucial effect of dimming the lights down when the movie starts.
We recommend getting dimmer switches for the flexibility of adjusting the lighting level for entertainment or relaxation reasons.
