HALOGEN LIGHT FITTINGS
A light fitting is an assembely of all the elements and components of light. They are present wherever lights are fixed. Halogen fittings are simply the conventional light fitting brackets or casings to hold lights at a height.
● They are apt for spotlight bulbs or halogen bulbs.
● Unlike the metal brackets, these are made of aluminium and zinc alloy rendering them durability and easy handling.
● These are light-weight and can be easily mounted at heights.
● They are relatively more economic than LED or metal fittings.
● When mounted at a calculated height and justified to the orifice- reflector proportion, these fittings can hold very high intensity lightings perfectly to illuminate large spaces such as godowns, docks, marts, fields, etc.
If you own a shop and want to grab the attention of the passer-bys to your goods, the first thing you do is to put a nice show of your items on the window for people to look at. A bright and smart lighting can bring your establishment to the crowd’s notice and draw them in.
Here, again the reflector and orifice proportion of the fitting and the source comes into play. You design and install the fitting in a way that even a relatively smaller source of lighting can play big in the setting, automatically giving you an upper hand in advertising the items.
