Spot lights help to provide light where you need it most, to highlight your art collection or family portraits. Many of the spot lights today come with built-in LEDs which help in the conservation of energy. Spot lights can also be fitted with LED bulbs.
Different Types of Spot Lights
Spot lights are mostly used in stage performances and sometimes in houses to highlight certain places or objects. There are different types of spot lights like piano convex, followspot, ellipsoidal, beam projector, Fresnel, PAR Pin and parabolic aluminized reflector.
Piano convex consists of a single lens and was mostly used in the days when theatre was a widely used source of entertainment. It is convex or round on one side and flat on the other. They are used in producing light which is axially symmetrical having a soft edge. Followspot are spotlights which are used to follow an actor on the stage. It is operated by a human operator and sometimes they have beam with colour changers to get different effects.
Give a new Look to your Living Spaces with Spotlights
Ceiling spotlights which are also known as downlights are used in rooms instead of pendant lights where the other lights in the room are wall lights. This can provide the room with a feeling of space. They are not always the best source of light in a room in some cases but many times can be used to make a dark room usable.
Earlier spotlights were considered a drain on energy consumption but today LEDs have changed this. LEDs can work for 10,000 hours without any problems. You can get different sizes and colours that you can choose to light up your room.
The Problems with Spotlights
When mounting spotlights they have to be a little distance apart to prevent heating and fires. Even when LED lights are used which are cool it is best not to place them too close to prevent a casualty. You cannot place insulation on top of these lights. In case insulation is to be placed on these lights they have to be capped so that insulation does not come in contact with it.
So if you want to add spot lights to your living spaces you can choose those with F capped triangle.
