Sylvania Metalarc Metal Halide 250 watt light bulbs

When it comes to finding very bright, highly efficient, high light quality, long life light bulbs for your office, production facility, warehouse, or other large buildings, many people choose M250 metal halide light bulbs. The brand chosen most often is Sylvania Metalarc. Bulbs made by other manufacturers might be referred to as Multi-Vapor. While the technical term for the bulb is M250/U, they are simply referred to as 250 watt Metal Halide bulbs or 250 watt Metalarc bulbs. These high-octane bulbs really pack a punch and offer users a bright white light to work under. They are the most energy efficient bulbs available today and work great for office lighting and warehouse lighting, as well as outdoor lighting.

Think of a time you drove by an intersection with two different gas stations at the corner. One station has a yellow or orange tint to its light; the other has bright white color. All things being equal, most people will choose the station with the bright white light. Chances are the white light that you saw was provided by a Metal Halide light bulb. This one simple choice can mean a lot to a business owner who is fighting for every customer possible. In another scenario, imagine the new office facility you are working in has Metal Halide lighting. The paperwork you use will be clear and visible, the signage on the wall is crisp and bright, and potential hazards will be noticeable, potentially avoiding accidents.

The most recognizable physical feature of this bulb is its unique shape. It is a bulb-within-a-bulb, meaning that the smaller bulb, which is located where the filament of a light bulb typically is, creates the light, while the surrounding shell serves to keep the special mix of inert gasses surrounding the center tube. Metal Halide lighting contains some really high-end technology designed to provide the highest light output with the lowest possible energy use. The bulb produces light by allowing energy to pass through the arc tube, heating up certain elements of the bulb and producing the visible light. This model has a large base, called a mogul base or E39 base. The bulb is offered in a clear glass design standard and is available in a coated design too, for an even light spread.

You might have heard that these types of light bulbs show color very poorly. The Sylvania M250 is bright, white, and shows colors quite well. The CRI of the bulb is 70, which means the color quality of this Metal Halide bulb is comparable to normal fluorescent lighting. The bottom line is you wont have to sacrifice quality and performance to save money each month on energy. The M250/U truly gives you the best of both worlds. Even places who are very picky about lighting needs, such as galleries, churches, or museums will use metal halide bulbs.

If you currently use GE MVR250 Multi-Vapor bulbs or Philips Switch Start Metal Halide MH250 bulbs, you would be a perfect candidate to upgrade to the Sylvania Metalarc line of products. Sylvania puts more energy and effort into quality control and it shows in the excellence of their products. Combine that quality with our high level of service, and you have got a really great lighting solution.
