How can people possibly steal light bulbs?! How stingy can you be, right? It may seem strange, but it does happen in hotels. According to LateRooms.com, nine out of 10 said they stole from hotel rooms with light bulbs being second on the most common list of items.
To help stop this fiasco, GU24 bulbs came to market. They have bi-pin, twist-lock connectors, which are very different than other screw-type light bulb bases. Therefore, anyone who steals one won’t be able to use it in their home. To install GU24 bulbs in a hotel, simply twist and click.
TCP’s recently released LED GU24 bulbs are available as a multi-directional bulb in A-lamp shapes. This ENERGY STAR® rated bulb provides excellent light output for the most demanding applications. The LED bulbs can replace an existing GU24 CFL base fixture, too. These LED lamps are a better option because they’ll save you as much as 85 percent in energy as halogen alternatives. They have low heat generation and are perfect for hotel applications because fabrics won’t fade.
The most respectable of guests have been caught taking light bulbs and packing them in their suitcases. They steal towels, bathrobes, batteries, alarm clocks, hair dryers and you name it. Guests are known to take just about anything not nailed to the floor. By using light bulbs like GU24s, your hotel construction project will be equipped to prevent theft with light bulbs at least.
