Why your LED bulbs cannot be used in a closed fixture?
Can you explain why your bulbs cannot be used in a closed fixture? I understand that they cannot be used with a dimmer, but what about non-dimmable closed fixtures?
Our CENTRIC HOME™ Flicker-Free A19 10W LED Bulbs contain hardware that is heat-sensitive and requires heat dissipation for safe operation. When these lights are used within open fixtures such as sconces or traditional lamps, the heat is easily able to dissipate through moderate airflow.
As an alternative, you may be interested in our A19 LED Filament Bulbs, which are suitable for fully enclosed fixtures without concern for component overheating. These lights are available in the most common color temperatures for residential installations (2400K, 2700K, and 3000K).
