What do I do with the earth wire if my light fitting is not earthed?

If any of our lamps, lights or bulb holders do not have an earth connection it will be because the outer surface is predominately made from a non conductive material such as glass, plastic, ceramic or bakelite etc, therefor it is not necessary to earth the unit.
If you are using an earthed three core cable with a unit which does not need to be earthed then the earth cable can simply be trimmed back and safely secured using electrical insulation tape.
Any light, lamp, bulb holder or fitting with a conductive or metal exterior surface must always be earthed to ensure against risk of electrocution or serious injury.
We recommend that any fitting or installation is done by a qualified electrician, do not risk installation yourself if you are at all unsure.
