Different Types of Lights

In the 19th century, the very first incandescent lamp was invented by two gentleman, Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan. Since then, there has been many improvements in different types of bulbs and their efficiencies. There are several types of lights and they have all been designed with a considered image in mind. Main types of bulbs are commonly found in the lighting systems of offices, homes or factories. The performance of a light depends on the bulb, different light bulbs create different lighting effects. A lamp is a device that creates light by an electrical current, and is a form of artificial…

More on Different Types of Lights

Light Emitting Diode LED lights are an electrical component that emits light through electrons in a semiconductor device. It does not have as much filament, using less power and has a long lifespan. LED lights produce a greater amount of light than incandescent lights and help preserve energy. These diodes are able to emit light of an intended colour without needing colour filters. Fluorescent A fluorescent bulb is a gas discharge tube that utilises fluorescence to create visible light. Luminous efficiency of the fluorescent tube is around 45 to 100 lumens per watt. Compared to incandescent lights,…

The Differences Between Fluorescent and LED Lights

Fluorescent lights are a large part of the lighting family. The standard fluorescent light was developed in the 1930’s for commercial use. There are three key types of fluorescents; cold cathode, hot cathode and electroluminescent. Advantages of Fluorescent Lights: Energy efficient. Affordable production costs – fluorescent lights are 66% cheaper than traditional lighting and provides the exact amount of brightness. Long life of tubes – The average bulb or tube has the lifespan of six times longer than a traditional light. Fluorescent lights tend to burn less after being used continuously.…

The Basics on High Bay Lighting

What are Highbay Lights? As the name implies, highbay lights are used to light up spaces with high ceilings. This usually applies to ceilings ranging from 20 feet to around 24 feet. Lowbay lights, however, are used for ceilings under 20 feet.   Highbay lights have multiple applications across a variety of industries, this includes workshops, assembly lines, factories. Highbay lights may also be seen in large recreational gyms and facilities. This type of light is also excellent for lighting up storage facilities and warehouses, large conference halls and even in hangars. Highbay lighting provides…
