With a simple form, the LED cylinder light delivers bursts of quality light with a clean and uncluttered appearance. They are often used for decorative accent lighting in restaurants, hotels, and public spaces but are also becoming a popular choice in residential spaces as well. They are versatile enough to be used as wall sconces, floor lamps or pendants and can help brighten a living room or dining area while still providing space to highlight other decor items such as paintings or luxury furniture.
While some LED bulb solutions may look more like traditional incandescent bulbs, others are integrated into fixture designs that better resemble other types of lights such as recessed and wall sconce fixtures. In addition, some ENERGY STAR qualified LED lights feature an innovative design that combines the benefits of both types of bulbs to achieve superior performance in a wide range of applications.
LEDs are solid-state devices that use semiconductor materials to convert electricity into light. The process produces very little heat and the resulting light is more energy efficient than other traditional bulbs. Additionally, since the light is produced by solid-state technology, LEDs do not “burn out” but experience a gradual depreciation in brightness over time called lumen depreciation.
To keep the LED chip cool, some LED bulbs and fixtures feature a special type of heat sink that is engineered to dissipate the generated heat in a safe and efficient manner. This is one of the most important aspects of LED light design, as it is a primary driver of the useful life and performance of the light. Using an improper thermal management system can dramatically reduce the useful life of an LED, and this is why it’s so important to choose ENERGY STAR qualified products that are designed with proper thermal management.
Some cylinder lights also offer multiple color options, which allows users to match the mood of their space with just the push of a button. They are also battery operated, which means they are portable and can be moved around the home to set the perfect mood for any occasion.
Cylinder lights are also available in a variety of finishes, giving customers the option to choose a look that best matches their décor and fits the style of their home or commercial space. Some cylinder lights feature an aluminum housing with a white finish while others have a more modern metallic finish that can complement other contemporary decor.
