Lamps offer vintage appeal with LED efficiency

MaxLite provides the nostalgic look and warmth of Edison-style filament incandescent bulbs with the energy-saving benefits of LED technology in its latest Filament lamp series. Designed for retail, residential and hospitality applications, the line of vintage lamps includes a full range of decorative bulb shapes (A19, ST18, T14, G30 and B11) to complement ceiling, pendant, wall and post top fixtures.

The lamps are constructed of a tinted, antique-looking glass cover and visible linear LED filaments that deliver the warm, amber glow of their incandescent counterparts, but offer a much longer lifetime of 15,000 hours. All MaxLite LED filament lamps are UL listed and dimmable with standard incandescent dimmers.

The 6.5W globe and glass-tipped ST18 styles have a light output equivalent to that of a 60W incandescent bulb, while the 4.5W A19 and tubular T14 styles are 40W equivalents. While the entire filament series is available with a medium base, the 2.5W clear glass candelabra lamp is also offered in an E12 base to replace 25W incandescent bulbs.

The LED Filament Lamp series also includes a Silver Bowl A19 lamp designed for use in open pendants. The 6.5W A-lamp is topped with a half-chrome bowl that redirects light upward into the pendant's shade, preventing a displeasing glare on the surface below. Offered in a warm white, 2700K colour temperature, the 60W equivalent lamp delivers 750lm.

“With the trend of lighting fixtures that partially or fully expose the bulb, filament lamps have become a favorite of interior designers and homeowners,” noted Alex Truong, Product Manager, MaxLite. “We are excited to be able to offer decorators and luminaire manufacturers an energy-efficient version of this very popular bulb style.”
