Fort Lauderdale, Fl (PressExposure) November 10, 2009 -- The new additions include a range of dimmable compact fluorescent spring bulbs and dimmable reflectors flood bulbs. The new dimmable products will be offered initially in a 14-watt and 23-watt SpringLampÂ®, and in 14-watt R20, 14-watt R30 and 19-watt R40 covered reflectors replacing wattages incandescent wattages between 50-75 watts.
"We are very excited to offer our customers more ways to reduce energy" said Zev Herman, President of SuperiorLighting.com. "In the past there were valid complaints from customer's that compact fluorescent bulbs did perform well in locations that require dimming - this new line of dimmable CFL reflectors will work in recessed fixtures and spot lights and are suitable for both home and business."
These lamps feature advanced ballast design, which allows these CFL lamps to dim from 100% to 20% without the annoying "flicker" typical of other products. First generation dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs were prone to sputtering and end blackening which caused early failure and frustrated many users. This second generation of dimmable CFLs is designed to run at cooler operating temperature, which maximizes lamp life. These new dimmable CFLs are manufactured with a proprietary internal glass pre-coat to improve lumen output/depreciation through the life of the bulb as well.
Superior Lighting recommends these bulbs for commercial, hospitality and residential spaces. They are perfect for conference rooms, lobbies, auditoriums, and home theaters - just about any dimming application. They are designed for 600 watt slides or rotary dimmer switches.
