Compatible Light Fixtures for A19 LED Bulbs
I have just bought 2 bulbs: NorthLux™ 95 CRI E26 A19 LED Bulb for Art & Studio. I want to install them to a ceiling fixture but not lose the CRI and 6500K. Do you have a list of suitable fixtures? Or any tips for how to choose fixtures to get the best out of the bulbs I've just purchased?
These lightbulbs utilize the E26 base, which is the common standard socket for lightbulb fixtures in North America.
So long as the fixture is connected to an E26 base fixture and utilizes standard North American line voltage, the product should provide the optimal output of CRI as well as an accurate color temperature.
That being said, please note that these LED lightbulbs require a moderate amount of airflow for heat dissipation. As such, we recommend utilizing a light fixture that is not entirely enclosed, so that the heat generated during operation can dissipate.
Do these lights still work optimally from INSIDE a light fixture?
For example this kind: Progress Lighting P3925-09 Close-to-Ceiling, Nickel https://amazon.com/dp/B004K5CLBW/
I hear you about ventilation - this may not be ideal for that. But what about the white translucent covering and how much of the light from the bulbs it will impact?
What kind of light fixture will allow the bulbs to give optimal light while not shining in the eyes? I want to install them on my ceiling fixture.
As our standard A19 lightbulbs are not designed for enclosed fixtures, we would not recommend pairing them with the Progress Lighting P3925-09 fixture. Further, we do not have any specific fixture manufacturers or models that we could recommend, and we do sincerely apologize for any impact this may have on your purchasing process.
Unfortunately, we do not have any information regarding the transmission levels of the materials used in the referenced fixture. For accurate transmission data, we recommend reaching out to the hardware manufacturer directly as they likely have information available regarding the average transmission levels of light sources placed within them.
As a baseline for comparison, it might be helpful to know that the clear polycarbonate material used in our LED Shop Light Fixtures is fully transparent, yet reduces the overall transmission of the light source by roughly ~10%. As such, we would suspect that an opaque enclosure would block the transmission even further.
As an alternative option to our standard A19 bulbs, we would likely recommend our 2700K or 3000K Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential, which are suitable for enclosed fixtures as well as damp installation areas such as bathrooms.
