The unique features of metal halide lamps offer more light than conventional systems, excellent colour uniformity, longer life and significant energy savings.
Metal halide lamps have an average life of 15,000 – 20,000+ hours. That is more than ten times the life span of incandescent lamps.
Improved Light Quality
The output of metal halide lamps is closer to natural sunlight than most other light sources. The human eye prefers white light because of better visual acuity, even at lower light levels.
Metal halide lamps can be designed to produce almost any colour temperature desired, from 2700K – 20,000K. Speciality colours can also be produced, including blue, green, aqua and pink.
Excellent Colour Rendering
Metal halide offers excellent colour rendering, with a 65 – 90 CRI (Colour Rendering Index).
Metal halide generates high light levels from a compact light source. This allows for smaller, more controllable luminaires.
Metal halide lamps are equally suited for indoor or outdoor use and relatively unaffected by ambient temperature. Extensive style and wattage options allow for many applications.
Metal halide lamps generate 65 – 115 lumens (per watt) more, than incandescent, fluorescent or mercury vapour lamps.
Positive Environmental Impact
Metal halide lamps deliver light more efficiently than incandescent lamps, reducing the impact of electrical power generating requirements. Their durability and extended product life reduces the impact of product replacement and disposal.
