For those of you who need the highest light output possible from a PAR38
halogen, we offer this 250 watt version. For years, people have been aware
of a need to get lots of light in a relatively small package with a reflector to
direct light where it is needed. Often, these 250PAR38 flood lights are a standard for many
hi-bay situations which still need to be dimmable such as churches or
auditoriums or college lecture halls. Sylvania made this lamp in response
to a GE version that has been on the market for some time, but we feel that the
Sylvania product is superior as it has Capsylite technology which gives it a
4500 hour average rated life! Sylvania put a halogen capsule light in a
reflector to give a great amount of light output while delivering good beam
control. PAR38 bulbs in general have a short neck with a large reflector, just above the Edison (medium) base. Though many
PAR38 bulbs are similar
from different manufacturers, we do believe that this product is superior for
its beam patterns and light output. As the original developer of halogen lighting technology, they excel in delivering a
quality product for either commercial use or for your home.
Like all halogen bulbs, the 250PAR38 halogen bulbs are filled
with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer
lifethan normal incandescent bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes for
various different uses. The PAR38 halogen light bulbs are
flood shaped with the heavy, thick glass that is common to many medium to large
sized halogen bulbs. PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector. These types
of bulbs will provide you with a high light output, a more white-colored light
(a higher color temperature - approximately 3000K), and longer life than normal
R or BR reflectors. That is why the halogen are many times used in energy saving
lighting situations because they are more efficient in their light production.
The PAR38 is a good direct replacement for the incandescent R40 lamps that have
been used in outdoor lighting or track and recessed cans over the past decades.
In fact, the 250PAR38 halogen could replace up to a 500 watt incandescent
reflector flood in some high applications, delivering the same usable light into
a space. These also come in a flood beam or a spot beam pattern.
Depending on how high these are mounted should determine which beam spread you
should use. Generally higher applications need a spot version.
Sylvania generally calls their halogen line Capsylite and within that category are many
different configurations of light bulbs. The variety ranges from standard
bulbs to bipin halogen to the full spectrum variety called Daylight Plus. There are also track
lighting bulbs, indoor floods and indoor/outdoor PAR floods. Whatever the
lighting need, there probably is a Sylvania lamp that will work correctly in
that situation. eLightBulbs.com is an online light bulb company that
