Why your LED bulbs can not be used in enclosed fixtures?
Can you tell me why your bulbs can not be used in enclosed fixtures? Is it because they generate heat? I am looking for bulbs I can use in enclosed light fixtures.
We can confirm that many of our lightbulbs require moderate airflow to allow for the dissipation of heat from the internal product components.
When these products are installed within enclosed fixtures that do not allow for heat dissipation, they will experience a higher failure rate.
As alternatives, you may also be interested in our filament bulbs, such as the Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential, which are designed to be compatible with fully enclosed fixtures.
I'm unsure if the wattage on your filament bulbs will supply enough light for our current 3 bulb 60 watt indacesant kitchen fixture. Can you provide more information on that.
We can confirm that the Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential is equivalent to 40W bulbs and has a light output of 450 lumens.
