All three BR LED lamps deliver the warm illumination traditionally associated with incandescent BR lamps, while using 83 percent less energy and delivering an expected service life of more than 45 years*. Additionally, BR LED lamps resemble the physical look of incandescent bulbs.“New BR LED lamps provide an energy-efficient solution that maintains the warm light output from traditional sources,” said Seth Owen, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, LED Lamps and Track Lighting. “The smooth exterior and reflector design eliminates visibility of the LEDs and the affordable price allows customers to seamlessly upgrade from incandescent lamps.” The BR20, BR30 and BR40 lamps replace 50, 75 and 100-watt lamps, while only using 8, 12 and 17-watts respectively. They are available in lumen packages of 500, 850 and 1045, and are dimmable down to 10 percent.
