Leapfrog Lighting’s industry-standard Energy Star certified PAR LED bulbs are now higher-efficiency at a lower cost. The Leapfrog Lighting PAR bulbs have always been known for consistency bulb-to-bulb and stringent color qualities.
“This isn’t about revolutionary change,” explained Stephen Naor, CEO of Leapfrog Lighting. “Our PAR line was already among the best for what we call Total Light Quality. We’re improving what was already a top performing lamp. We are evolving all quality characteristics, with incremental gains in all areas of quality, including coverage, glare, fall off, and color temperature control. The big news is the increased efficiency and lower price.”
With18 models available for each bulb style and with a choice of CRIs of 81 or 95 —even the most demanding business or display application can be implemented. Leapfrog Lighting’s PAR bulbs are popular with art galleries, museums and high-end retail stores where environment and product display is critical. CRI is a quantitative measure of a bulbs ability to reproduce colors faithfully.
The bulbs are generally suited for any application where color consistency and display quality is critical, but is also often chosen for pleasing office environments, general household lighting or for any suitable fixture where consistent quality is desirable. “Without doubt, the PAR line are among the most efficient bulbs on the market,” explained Mr. Naor. “But our PAR line is designed for anyone who wants that efficiency without compromising color, consistency, light quality.”
