Verbatim Unveil Halogen-replacement LED Lamps

Verbatim PAR16 In Retail SituationVerbatim has introduced a range of high performance LED lamps designed to replace halogen lighting in professional applications, particularly for retail and hospitality use.

The company's latest energy-friendly LED spotlights provide customers with excellent colour rendering. Producing a minimum Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 95 and a broad white spectrum from 2700 to 4000K, the high CRI LED lamps ensure that colours and skin tones appear as natural as they would in normal daylight.

The PAR16 GU10 lamps, delivering a 'warm white' colour temperature of 2700K, are available in 6W and 8.5W power ratings to replace 35W and 50W halogen bulbs respectively. They are ideal for use in hospitality settings such as hotels, restaurants, museums and conference centres as well as for use in the home in corridors, stairwells or in the kitchen.

A short neck 14.5W PAR30 E27 lamp replaces a 75W halogen bulb typically used by retailers for shop windows, showrooms and other display areas.

Delivering a 'neutral white' colour temperature of 4000K, the LED lamp offers a 680 lumen output and creates an even colour-consistent pattern.

"The launch of these high CRI LED lamps presents increased choice to our professional customers that demand a naturally precise visual presentation of colours compared to conventional halogen bulbs," explained Jeanine Chrobak-Kando, Business Development Manager, LED Verbatim EMEA. "The combination of high CRI spotlighting with warm or cool hues can set mood, draw focus or add intensity to specific areas or items in a shop or hospitality venue."

Also part of Verbatim's professional range is the recently introduced AR111 LED lamp, which offers 750 lumens output and an adapted short-form factor to aid retrofit use in retail locations. With its beam angle of 25 degrees, it is ideal for accent lighting in shops. The company has also developed a 7W PAR16 GU 10 lamp with 370 lumens output as a 50W halogen bulb replacement also suited to accent lighting and background illumination.

The company's dimmable 3.5W LED candle with 150 lumens output is another noteworthy addition to the professional range. At 2700K, the candles emit a cosy glow and are the perfect energy efficient lighting solution for chandeliers.
