NorthLux vs. Absolute Series for Painting Studio
Could you please help me understand the pros and cons between Northlux and Absolute for a painter/artist studio? It seems that a 99CRI would be better, but is there something I'm not understanding?
When considering the Northlux and Absolute series of products, the two considerations are the form factor and CRI.
Though the Absolute Series products can offer a superior CRI of 99, they are currently only available in LED strip lights and LED modules. These products would require more configuration effort to install and could utilize power supplies, dimmers, and wiring connection accessories.
In comparison, though the Northlux line has a slightly lower CRI of 95+, the line includes lightbulbs, linear light fixtures, and shop lights. Each of these form factors can benefit different spaces and are generally easier to install.
For example, some of our artist customers have let us know that the NorthLux™ 95 CRI T5 LED Linear Light Fixtures have been a great pairing for their studio spaces and artwork creation. By viewing the bottom of the product page, you will notice a few recent comments left by customers.
