One of the most commonly used flood light bulbs in the lighting industry has
been the R30. It's been used in everything and probably in places it
shouldn't be used, but because it's inexpensive, people do this. But now comes a
new wrinkle in this type of light, they now come in a halogen version.
What does that mean? The manufacturers have put a halogen capsule in the
R30 shell and got a whole great new result. Now the size flood you're used
to is brighter and whiter, making it once again, a great replacement for older
style of incandescent lamps. The
wattages are 60 or 75 watt versions and sometimes called the 60R30/H or 75R30/H flood lights. The
brand we carry are by far the most superior product on the market which is the
Westinghouse Halomax Spectralite. They fit anywhere a regular R30 lamp
will, including the eyeball fixtures
which can turn in almost any direction.
For most installations, they are used in recessed lighting
with a 4 inch opening and can be dimmed with a standard incandescent dimmer.
In many types of lighting applications, the dimming capability is what makes it
a wonderful choice for dining rooms, kitchens or high ceiling lighting for
large rooms. The places where the R30 halogen flood light bulbs can be used are endless
and sometimes includes recessed or track lighting as a popular option in retail
lighting situations. For retailers, these are one of the best new options
giving a soft light while gaining a whiter light. The R30 is
inches across the face if you're measuring it for identification purposes and
they have a standard medium base too.
Many businesses are looking for ways

where you might use R30 incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on

replacement. You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill
while still getting the amount of light that you want. Be aware that using
these on a dimmer will work just fine, but you will need turn them on full light
output on occasion to properly complete the halogen cycle in the lamp itself.
There is a nice reduction going to a halogen source and you will get the added
benefit of getting better lighting as well. We can't emphasize enough the
improvement in the light itself. Many people would describe it as a
cleaner light, making things look better. If you're a retail store with

old style incandescent lamps.
