Light fitting

To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.


According to the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide published by HM Government in 2013, the term ‘Light fitting’ refers to:

…a fixed light or lighting unit that can comprise one or more lamps and lampholders, control gear and an appropriate housing. The control gear may be integrated in the lamp or located elsewhere in or near to the fixed light.

NB: The term ‘lamp’ refers specifically to a light source, typically comprising a light-emitting element contained within an outer bulb or tube, which generally emits radiation within the visible spectrum.
