Impact of the Enclosed Fixture on Light Output
What happens to the effective spectrum of a bulb if it is used in a lampshade, or in an enclosed fixture with a glass cover?
Most glass covers and lampshades have a minimal effect on the spectrum of light emitted by our products. Generally speaking, the whiter (clear/translucent) the material, the less effect it would have on the spectrum.
Unless the lampshades or covers have a significant color/tint to them, you will most likely not observe any color or spectral shifts.
