Is Oxman Lighting an Australian company?
Absolutely! We are proud to be 100% Australian owned. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi Oi Oi!
How do your downlights stay cool when they don’t have the typical, finned heat sink on the back?
Traditional downlights use large, inefficient, finned heatsinks to keep their LEDs cool. Our lights capitalise on unique, patented, thermal management design concepts, resulting in more efficient cooling and a market leading weight to output ratio. Years of meticulous design, research and testing has allowed us to eliminate the cumbersome, finned heatsink altogether whilst simultaneously ensuring optimal performance and durability.
Are your products safe?
Our products have been tested and approved for sale by independent testing labs in accordance with the applicable standards. Furthermore, our lights do not contain any glass, so they will not cause injury by shattering.
Is your website secure?
Information transmitted between our servers and your browser is secured by 256-bit SSL encryption – the same level of security used for online banking.
Are your lights dimmable?
Our high output lights all come with a dimmable power supply. This gives you the flexibly to choose how much light you need so you can be comfortable. It’s better to have too much light and dim it, than to have not enough light. The added bonus; when dimmed LEDs consume even less power and can last longer.
What is efficacy?
Efficacy is the ratio of lumens (light output) to watts (electric power consumed). A luminaire with a higher efficacy is more efficient at converting electrical power to light. For example, an efficacy of 100 lumens per watt means that for every watt of power consumed, the light output is 100 lumens.
What is CRI?
The CRI (Colour Rendering Index) is a scale out of 100 which quantitatively measures the ability of a given light source to accurately render colour when compared to an ideal reference source, such as the sun. If a light source has a CRI of 100, then colours should look the same under that source as they would appear when lit by natural sunlight. Visually, the higher the CRI the better, however the trade-off is that a higher CRI will result in a lower efficacy.
What is colour temperature?
Different light sources emit different coloured light. Some lights may appear blue or cool, while others may appear yellow or warm. These colour differences can be expressed numerically on the Kelvin (K) scale. For example, a 3000K light will appear yellow and warm, whereas a 5000K light will appear cool and blue.
Which colour temperature is right for me?
The colour temperature that is best for you is dependent upon personal preference and application. A warm light would typically be suitable for spaces such as bedrooms and living rooms, as the warm light provides a cosy feel. A cooler light would typically be more suited to kitchens, laundries, offices, and spaces where tasks are performed. Of course natural light is always the best and we encourage you to be green and use that when you can.
