BR25 flood light bulbs for smaller track lighting.
Although BR30 lamps have been around for a long time, there have been situations, namely track lighting, where some of these smaller floods have been used. Some manufacturers of track have wanted a smaller head size while still maintaining the look of a traditional track lighting fixture. The BR25 flood light bulbs are slightly smaller than the BR30. The diameter at the face of a BR30 is 3 3/4 inches and the BR25 is 3 1/8 inches. The difference is small but some types of fixtures require this lamp only. You'll know if you have these kind of fixtures because nothing else will work. Light glass flood lights have been a regular use item for many commercial buildings for many years and this is one of those that have a particular special application. These bulbs come in a few wattages which are somewhat unusual for the size bulb that they are, but usually right for the track fixtures that use them.
BR25 flood light bulbs are generally a category of floods that are known for general lighting and not a spot application. In other words, these probably aren't the greatest if you want to highlight a particular object but would rather fill an entire are with light. These are rated at a 2,000 hour lamp life, so they generally have a longer life than some things you might find in a hardware or retail store. They have a medium base which most people know as a regular light bulb base like you have with any standard bulb. This makes it easy to use them almost in any fixture where you use a regular light bulb now.
We have many variations of BR25 long life flood light bulbs that can be used in a variety of lighting scenarios. One of the things to keep in mind is that long life bulbs are generally lower in light output than standard bulbs. So when you're designing or creating a new interior space, be aware that these will have a lower light output but they last longer. One of the reasons that they have a more yellow appearance is that they are rated for 130 volt operation and most people in business and in homes are operating on a 120 volt line. So what that means is that the lamp is in getting driven as hard and it will be less susceptible to voltage spikes. This is something that commercial building owners have known for many years. A commercial building has many issues one of them being voltage spikes and another being vibration. Most buildings have a lot of vibration in them and that can cause filaments in the incandescent lamp to shake loose. That means the incandescent lamp you use will have a lower lamp life. So what you're buying is longer life, not necessarily a super fantastic lighting effect, it's a bit of a compromise.
So if you have a recessed lighting or track light application that requires this lamp, then these flood lights would be the answer for you. BR25 flood light bulbs might be the ultimate solution where fixtures are tight and you need every little bit of space to get the bulb in.
