Linestra Type Light Bulbs

Price Each: Discontinued, NO STOCK, see our LED replacement BLF25537
Item Number: BLF10092
Linestra type light bulbs are an incandescent light source though some people mistakenly believe it to be a fluorescent type. It has two side prongs which go into a particular socket. They are also known as Osram Linestra type or Philips Philinea light bulbs. The product shown here is the Osram variety although there is no difference between either brand. These light bulbs give off a beautiful light that is very flattering to skin-tones, so you'll often see them used in bathrooms, locker rooms or washrooms. These are rated for 1000 hours and can be dimmed like other incandescent light bulbs using a standard incandescent rotary or slide dimmer. They're easy to replace, but you probably want to carefully apply light pressure to both sides of the lamp when you push them into the socket. For those of you who want a more extended life version of this, we do have LED replacement versions for all three with a 50,000-hour rating. Please be aware that all manufacturers no longer make this type of incandescent Linestra type light bulb and some stocks on these have dried up. We still have some of them but consider going to the LED version. If no one told you that it was LED, you wouldn't know it was, and its price point is low now. It's an excellent way to get energy-efficient and then have no more problems with getting replacements.

Some basic information.
This lamp is a linear form of light that most people like for bathroom or vanity lighting. It’s usually mounted on either side of a mirror giving an excellent source of sidelight which eliminates shadows. It’s a beautiful even light that you’re going to get for a space that often had lights overhead which would create shadows while maintaining a consistent lumen output. With this type of lighting you don’t have that, just a clean linear source of light that is very pleasing to the eye and very good with skin tones. The linear incandescent versions are no longer made as stated before, but the LED Linestra type will do an excellent job of giving the same color of light while still improving the actual light levels. The new LEDs are generally brighter, but if you didn’t tell anybody that these were LED, they would never know. Bathroom lighting has changed a lot, and people are moving away from overhead lighting because it doesn’t do an excellent job as a mirror or vanity. And people don’t want to change to a fluorescent light which often gives off a stark appearance. So this is a natural choice for mirror lighting in a home or an upscale public bathroom and locker rooms.

We have Linestra type light fixtures too.
Not only do we have these Linestra type light bulbs but we also have the light fixtures that these are used in. They come in a variety of finishes, and they are easy to mount and install in an existing bathroom, or they could be used in the new construction application. These are architectural grade light fixtures, not some cheap strip light fixtures that you might find in a big box store. They are made for excellent performance and a great look that is very aesthetically pleasing for the lot of bathrooms, soffit lighting or certain kinds of general lighting. There’s never been a better time to take a look at this energy-saving light to replace those old incandescent lamps that you have. They’re very reasonably priced as well while still offering a much higher life anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 hour rated life.
