Ring has secured a strong pass in the latest bulb tests published in CAT and
What Car? magazines.
Ring’s long-life bulbs
performed favourably compared to a range of bulbs from across the market,
notably meeting all ECE standards and safety criteria where several other
leading brands did not.
The test took the Ring Long Life H4 headlamp (part number RU472LL) – a popular reference for long distance
and high mileage drivers – and compared against a range of H4 bulbs from other
leading brands. The long-life bulbs performed well, even when compared to high
performance +130 bulbs, which are designed to put more light on the road.
Henry Bisson, Marketing
Manager at Ring, says, “These tests are important for technicians and factors,
because they give an objective view of which bulbs are meeting legal
requirements and which aren’t. We’re delighted to say that Ring’s bulbs met the
criteria that are used when carrying out E mark tests. Significantly, there
were some big brands – described as staples of the garage tool set –whose bulbs
did not meet the standards that ensure safe illumination when on the road.
Lighting is a safety critical component, and as such it’s vital that factors
and technicians are supplying bulbs that meet the ECE regulations and are
performing well for drivers.”
To ensure driver
safety, Ring is advising technicians and factors to fit bulbs that they can
trust. Read the full article and bulb test results here.
