HID light bulbs refer to high-intensity discharge bulbs. They fall into four categories: metal halide (MH) bulbs, mercury vapor, high-pressure sodium bulbs, and low-pressure sodium bulbs.
Typical applications of these bulbs include street lighting, parking lots and garages, tunnels, and other roadway and infrastructure applications, as well as open interior applications such as warehouses, shipping facilities, and gymnasiums.
These bulbs are frequently sought after by city, state, municipalities as well as private and commercial property managers for office buildings, maintenance facilities, parking lots and garages.
Just some of the manufacturers we carry include Sylvania, GE, Plusrite, and Eiko.
MH Bulbs, Mercury Vapor Bulbs, And More
Metal halide and mercury vapor bulbs offer a variety of options when it comes to color temperatures. They are whiter and brighter than high-pressure and low-pressure sodium bulbs, and are therefore used in many more applications.
We can offer low-pressure sodium bulbs manufactured solely by Phillips . This specific type of lighting has been used in areas where reliable illumination is required but significant brightness or esthetic appeal of the light is not of great concern.
This type of lighting isn’t used as often today, as better options have entered the market. This is also due in part to the yellow tint of the light, which can cause surrounding spaces and objects to appear yellow or grey-yellow.
Metal halide and mercury vapor bulbs are currently a more popular choice for similar applications because of better color rendering. Metal halide and mercury vapor bulbs emit a crisp, clear while light.
Metal Halide bulbs are available in many sizes, shapes, base types and wattages. Some metal halide lamps can even be updated or replaced with an LED as an alternative bulb. When you contact us with your part number, we can help you determine your best replacement options.
