Philips light bulbs is one of the largest manufacturer of light bulbs including
incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and many HID sources. The
are a Dutch company which many years ago bought the old Westinghouse lamp
company. It's no relation to the Westinghouse of today, which is now under
different ownership. Philips has been a manufacturer of light bulbs for
many years and have provided their product through many different channels of
distribution. Philips was instrumental in the development of compact
fluorescent light bulb technology with the original PL lamp and now they provide
the long PL-L lamps used in many applications. Philips light
bulbs encompass many different categories of lighting, but one of their main
lines is the linear fluorescent type. Most people
recognize the name Philips for TV's, stereo equipment and other types
technology, but they are also well known for light bulbs primarily here and in
Incandescent lamps are the type that were developed earliest of any of the other
kinds. But Philips was involved in creating many kinds of
lighting products, including Ceramalux high pressure sodium, fluorescent
and Philips Masterline halogen light bulbs. A halogen bulb has greater light output as it uses special
technology to recombine elements back onto the filament. This wasn't
developed by the people at Philips initially, but they have made some improvements on
several designs of bulbs. If you're a user of Philips halogen light
bulbs, you may want to consider switching to the Sylvania product instead. In
this case, Sylvania has been a real leader, you'll see the difference when you light up a
halogen from them compared to some of the other brands. The light is generally brighter and beam pattern is excellent. This can make a big
difference if you have many of these in a retail store or in some track lighting
in your home. You want to be able to have a great presentation of what
ever you have to highlight and with halogen light bulbs, you'll be getting the
best possible light for that space. In our online lighting store, you'll
find everything from MR16 to Masterline PAR halogen lamps that will fit almost any type of
recessed lighting or track. You never again have to sacrifice the light
you need just because the size of the bulb isn't right.
Lately, people have been concerned about the kind of like that they're working
under or living under. That's why so many people are turning to what is
called full spectrum lighting.
The term full spectrum is most often used when referring to fluorescents that
simulate natural outdoor light. By definition, virtually all fluorescent light
bulbs are full spectrum in that they contain some of all colors in their
spectral range. Full spectrum fluorescents are a great option to get
better natural lighting, but so are the incandescent full spectrum. But the
Philips daylight incandescent bulbs aren't a fluorescent bulb
and therefore don't have the same type of light as fluorescent. The halogen
light is still most like an incandescent, but has the warmer tones filtered out.
However, the term full spectrum is primarily used when referring to those lamps
that fall into the white to blue/white color temperature range. Color
temperature is measured by a term called kelvin. 3000 kelvin would be a warm
tone color, 5000 kelvin would be a white color and 6500 kelvin would be a
blue/white color. Most of their daylight incandescent light bulbs use a blue
phosphor coating. Most of what we stock is in the Sylvania
Daylight which is a direct cross product to Philips light bulbs offering.
Philips is also a leader in fluorescent lighting with a complete line of
linear and compact fluorescent products for home or commercial use.
There's probably no broader line of fluorescent products in the industry that
have created a standard for many types used today. Philips is the
maker of the popular PL compact fluorescent which have been one of the best
products for reliability and innovation. Whether you have long fluorescent
tubes or small plug-in compact types like the Philips PL, you'll find that we can supply you with
