The LED MR16 LED lamp has been designed to fit into standard, low voltage, MR16 fixtures. These LED?s are thermally engineered to operate in enclosed fixture and provides added security by automatically cooling down (and reducing lumens output) only when exposed to extreme heat (air temperatures above 125F). In addition, there is no color shift when lumens output is reduced, and the overall lamp life is improved.
Choosing a light source color is important to the overall look or style of the project. While most people are becoming more familiar with this, you may want a quick overview so a brief description is below. This is not an absolute as many times people can go against the trend. Here's a few examples of projects we completed that were the opposite of the norm.
A residential kitchen in the style of a commercial kitchen project used 5000k lightbars.
Office environment that used 3500k overhead lights and 2700k desk lamps instead of 4100k.
Printing production facility that initially used 6500k lamps and then switched to 4100k lamps as the workers felt the 6500 was overpowering.
Landscaping project that used 2200k instead of 3000k lamps in turtle restricted area.
Typical Applications for Kelvin Temperatures
2300k Amber - Vintage Lamps, Turtle Friendly Applications (We have turtle friendly LEDs)
2700k Warm white - Residential Homes
3000k Warm white - Residential Homes
3500k Warm white - Modern Design Residential Homes, Office, Retail, Commercial
4000k Neutral white, Commercial, Office, Retail
5000k Cool white - Commercial, Retail, Industrial
6500k daylight - Industrial, Commercial
7000k blue (Color of sky)
The picture below is from the government Lighting Facts program. You'll notice that it does not include below 2700k or above 6500k. That's because 99.9% of lights sold presently fall within this range.
Beam angle is an indication of the width of a beam of light. In landscape lighting, you can have very narrow, narrow, wide and extra wide beams. These terms don?t describe the distance from one side of the beam to the other. Instead, they describe the angle of the beam from its center point to its edge. Typically, the same beam spread shouldn?t be used for all of the fixtures in your yard. The best beam angle for each fixture is determined by what it?s lighting. Look at the target area or object that you want to light to determine which angle you need.
