With their traditional design, halogen and incandescent globes of this shape are often referred to as “A-type” or “A-series”. The numbers following the ‘A’ denote the size, for example, an ‘A60’ has a 60mm diameter. Halogen globes are more efficient than traditional incandescent lamps and have the added benefit of an increased lifespan. With their high quality of light and ease of dimming, they have become a household staple. However, developments in LED technology have started to make halogen and incandescent globes obsolete. LED globes
have superior lifespans, much higher energy efficiency and a variety of colour temperatures to best match the environment.
Lamp Replacements Australia still stock a range of halogen globes for those not ready to make the switch to LED. Choose a frosted or pearl finish for softer light, or the clear glass option for a brighter light – particularly if the globe will be hidden within an oyster or behind a glass cover.
