People generally have wanted bulbs that last longer and take more punishment, and as a result extended service light bulbs were developed to stand up under the hard conditions. Common to almost every type of lighting application has been the rough service or vibration service bulbs. These are the standard size bulbs which you might be familiar with; the ones you've probably bought for years in hardware stores. You might also know them as household bulbs but with the improvement of greater construction. First of all, the extended service light bulbs have no light control associated with them, so it's important to select the right fixture. If you desire greater light control perhaps you might need a incandescent flood light instead. These could be used in recessed or track lighting where changing a bulb is more difficult. It's nice not to have to go up and down on a ladder so often, and this family of products helps!
The extended service light bulbs are the same physical size as standard but have multiple filament supports that protect against vibration and rough use. In fact, these are sometimes called long life bulbs. If you're a commercial user, then rough service light bulbs would be the best choice for many of the applications you have today. If you have incandescent lamps anywhere in your building, they can be susceptible to something as incidental as the vibration of slamming doors. These areas have a lot of vibration and so this type of lamp is an excellent choice to make your job easier and to save money over the long haul. This is especially true if your an owner of office buildings or work in an industrial plant where there is a lot of vibration and movement. Even if you don't have vibration problems, who wants to be changing bulbs so often? These bulb last ten times as long as normal incandescent bulbs.
There's never been a time when the selection of extended service light bulbs has been greater than it is now. You can get the longer life without having to sacrifice the look of your fixtures. It doesn't matter whether you have floods or standard bulbs, the choices are excellent. Whatever type you choose, you will be getting the highest quality and the most light you can for your money.
