PAR16 LED bulbs are a very bright and energy-efficient alternative to their halogen equivalents. They are fully dimmable, allowing for full control over the light output being produced. These bulbs are designed to provide long-lasting, consistent and uniform illumination. PAR16 LED light bulbs are ideal for indoor track lighting and recessed lighting fixtures, and can be used in outdoor fixtures that are enclosed.
Parabolic aluminized reflector (PAR) 16 LED bulbs are designed to control light more precisely. They produce about four times the concentrated light intensity of general service A shape incandescents. Like all light bulbs, the 16 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch. Therefore, a PAR 16 is 2 inches in diameter.
Unlike their halogen predecessors, PAR16 LED bulbs are more energy efficient and give off less heat as well. Most people know that since LEDs use less energy the cost of electricity to operate them is very low, and they can even reduce how much you use air conditioning in the summer months. Most PAR16 LED light bulbs are Energy Star certified, dimmable, and have a high CRI (color rendering index).
Due to their smaller size and narrower beam angle, PAR16 LED bulbs are very popular for use in track lighting, recessed lighting, display lighting, and pendant lighting. However, their most commonly found in jewelry stores, art galleries, and museums. They are even small enough to be used in antique cabinets and under cabinet lighting.
PAR16 LED Bulbs FAQs
PAR16 LED bulbs are designed as a one-for-one replacement solution for their halogen equivalents. They provide a more efficient and long lasting alternative without sacrificing any light output.
PAR16 LED bulbs come in a wide range of different beam angles, color temperatures, and lumen outputs. They feature two different base types, E26 (medium base) and GU24 (bi-pin).
PAR16 LED bulbs are commonly used in lighting applications that include display lights, flood and spot lights, outdoor fixtures that are protected from the elements, recessed downlights, and track lights.
Here are some of the benefits provided by PAR16 LED Bulbs:
• Up to 85% more efficient than halogen alternatives • Low heat generation, making them ideal for display lighting • Unique full face optics to provide a better quality of light, while retaining the traditional look of a halogen • Dimmable and non-dimmable versions available • Light weight, which helps ensure track and downlight installations do not strain • Composed of durable plastic to lower the risk of injury or breakage • Smooth clean outside housing, which allows them to blend into existing lighting applications • Excellent color consistency and CRI to enhance colors • 25,000 hour rated life • 5 year warranty
