Sylvania PAR16 halogen light bulbs are the ceramic PAR lamps for many types of lighting.

Sylvania PAR16 halogen light bulbs are an original product concept from this manufacturer.  They put a halogen capsule light in a small reflector to give a great amount of light output while delivering good beam control. The Sylvania is unique in it's construction where it has an enclosure of ceramic around the lamp itself. PAR16 bulbs will often have a ceramic covering over the neck of the bulb, just above the Edison (medium) base. This is used to diffuse the heat from the bulb in order to provide a longer life. It also looks more appealing for applications where the fixture does not cover the bulb.  If your PAR16 doesn't have this, don't worry. The bulb will function mostly the same as one that does have this covering.  It's more a matter of design, but we do believe that the Sylvania product is superior for its heat dissipation.

Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the typical R30 flood bulbs we have been using in lamps for years and years. Halogen bulbs, however, are filled with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer average lifespans than normal incandescent bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes for various different uses. The Sylvania PAR16 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. There are various wattages available as well. 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 Sylvania PAR16 halogen is a small flood bulb and are not as large as many halogen flood bulbs available. You can tell what kind of PAR lamp you have by measuring the distance across the widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of eighths of an inch the bulb diameter is. Therefore, PAR16 lamps are 2 inches across. PAR16 lamps are widely available from Sylvania, Westinghouse, and most other small bulb manufacturers. They have standard bases and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly exposed to rain or snow and still function normally and they do not need to be covered by a light fixture. This makes the PAR16 lamps very versatile and quite handy to use.

Sylvania generally calls their halogen line Capsylite and within that category are many different configurations of light bulbs. The variety ranges from standard halogen light 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 offers the entire Sylvania catalog for purchase over the web. So whether you need halogen, fluorescent or HID sources, we'll have the right bulb for your need. In this case, we have the breadth of the entire offering of Sylvania PAR16 halogen light bulbs.

Here's a helpful tip about lighting a space or area with these lamps. Try to make the area you're attempting to light a true highlight by making the light there three to five times as bright as the surrounding ambient light. This will cause attention to be drawn to the highlighted area. In many cases, people will gravitate toward these areas, so it's good to have product or something interesting there for people to look at. It sounds simple, but doing this makes a difference in how you market product or what kind of statement you're making with what your showing. Another way these lamps can help is with open track lighting in a low ceiling application. When a ceiling is low, then track lighting is sometimes hard to manage.  But with the Sylvania PAR16 halogen, you can have a low area and still have a lot of light which won't interfere with the space or what you're trying to light.

From your local retailer to finer homes, you will most likely find a Sylvania PAR16 halogen lighting your way. The small size of these reflector lamps make it possible to put them in almost any small space or recessed lighting.  Many people also use these halogen PAR16 bulbs for showcasing trophies, jewelry, art work, sculptures, etc. and when shown under this light will appear more brilliant.  In the case of retail lighting, the way you light something can make the difference in selling something or not.
