R20 flood light bulbs are the smaller lights used in many places today.
Like other types of floods, light glass flood lights have been a regular use item for many commercial buildings for many years. Building owners know that changing a bulb less often means greater savings on labor and the hassle of renting expensive equipment for high places. Now home owners as well as businesses can benefit from a better R20 flood light bulb. These are rated at 2,000 hours which means they'll last twice as long as the average retail store bulb. R20 flood light bulbs come in several wattages and have frosted finish which gives a smooth surface creating an even light. The wattages include 30, 50, 75 and 100 watts respectively. The R20 size is the exact size of a small standard household flood with a 2.5 inch diameter across the face of the bulb itself.
R20 flood light bulbs also come in a longer life version that's 10,000 hours and have krypton gas fill and multiple filament support to protect against vibration and rough service. Many people think that the cost of these flood bulbs are very expensive, and to be sure they are more money than standard ones. But they generally last 13 times as long as the hardware store types saving you money in the cost of replacement bulbs. So if you buy and light fixture from us, make sure that you also get bulbs so you won't have to change them as often. They have a medium base which most people know as a regular light bulb base. This makes it easy to use them almost in any fixture where you use a regular light bulb now. So think about all those areas where you have hard to reach fixtures, and use these incandescent R20 floods instead.
We have many variations of R20 flood light bulbs that can be used in a variety of lighting scenarios. One of the most popular applications is elevators of all things and small track lighting. One of the reasons that they have a slightly 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. 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 standard incandescent lamp you use will have a lower lamp life as opposed to the 10,000 hour versions.
So if you have a recessed or track lighting application and want to get the proper light, then these flood lights would be the answer for you. In both the smaller sizes and the larger sizes of floods, these all have the same great construction which should give years of service in the average home. You'll actually save money over the years by using these wherever you can. Call us if you have any questions about these lamps.
