SPL Components of Leeds – formerly known as Sycamore Products – has become respected within the industry for its ability to source and hold stock of components for leading kitchen, office and upholstery manufacturers for over 20 years.

Renowned for its screw-packing facility, SPL Components may not currently be on the radar as a supplier of lighting requirements. The company has supplied lighting to various market sectors since 1998, during which time it has established robust supply chain contacts, and built relationships which have allowed it to develop and source products of the quality and reliability synonymous with the SPL Components name.

Over the last few years, LED technology has driven a lot of design changes for light fittings that are suitable for installation into furniture. The traditional halogen, fluorescent and Pygmy style lights cannot offer the features and benefits of a good quality LED product, and sales on that type of lighting are declining not just within the UK, but throughout the world.

One of the major benefits of LED over those types of light sources is the lack of heat generated by the product. This is an obvious advantage with furniture based light fittings.

Low running costs and long product life are other features, and the fact that LEDs can now offer different colour renditions – warm, natural or cool white – means there are products available to suit all design tastes.

Design requirements are changing all the time, and SPL Components can offer advice on which type of light fitting would suit a range of applications.

The company offers a vast array of lighting options directly from stock, including: recessed or surface cabinet lighting; over cabinet lighting; IP rated lighting; plinth lights; LED strip lighting; remote sensors; LED link lights; smart phone and tablet controlled lighting; and motorised and non-motorised pop up sockets with USB charging ports and built in audio.

As well as offering advice on all types of lighting, the company has a fully accredited test laboratory and a dedicated lighting design and technical department staffed by fully trained, experienced lighting engineers. This enables SPL Components to offer accurate data on all of its lighting products in relation to lumen output, colour rendition and energy efficiency.
