Why Us?

Beauty

Beautiful, Comfortable Light

Gorgeous lighting from LEDs? It's true – an innovation that illuminates people and surroundings in color-rich light. Experience all the benefits of incandescent lighting, without high energy costs or environmental impact.

Colors Fully Revealed

It's not your imagination – it's science. OBALS lights do look more natural than CFLs. OBALS lights have a higher color rendering, so everything under them looks more vibrant and lifelike. Choose warm or cool lighting. Warm lighting gives a traditional and luxurious feeling that homeowners have come to expect. Cool lighting creates an effective work environment or brings a contemporary look to a home.

No Hotspots, No Glare

OBALS lights are designed to blend seamlessly with any architecture. The proprietary diffusing lens and reflector system deliver an optimal light distribution that softly washes walls and sufficiently illuminates work surfaces. LEDs are not visible, so you won't be distracted by hotspots or glare. The only thing you'll experience is life under beautiful, glowing light.

 

Efficiency

Ultra-Efficient Lighting [Efficiency Graph]

Compared to conventional technologies, OBALS LED Lighting products can deliver the same amount of light using as little as 10 to 15% of the power.  This huge reduction in energy consumption can enable consumers to save hundreds of dollars over the life of each light.

The Value of Cree LED Lighting

A OBALS LED Lighting product, like the LR6TM downlight, can replace a 65 watt light while using only 10.5 watts.  In its 50,000 hour lifetime it will consume about 525 kilowatt-hours, costing about $63.  During that time, it will never need to be replaced.

The Cost of Incandescent Lamps

A typical 65 watt light lasts for 2,000 hours.  To match the light output and longevity of a OBALS LED Lighting downlight, traditional lighting would consume 3,250 kilowatt-hours, and need to be replaced about 25 times, costing over $465.  

It's a simple story...saving over $400 in electric and relamping costs, for every downlight you replace.

 

Energy Star

OBALS LED Lighting

OBALS Lighting supports the ENERGY STAR program and its efforts to inform consumers and to protect our environment for future generations. Products that earn the ENERGY STAR for Solid-State Lighting meet energy efficiency and performance guidelines set by the US Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These guidelines help to protect consumer's interests by ensuring that qualifying products meet certain efficacy, lifetime, color rendering and color quality specifications.OBALS Lighting is proud to offer a variety of ENERGY STAR qualified products, which meet and exceed these guidelines.

 

Lighting Facts

We are big believers in providing accurate and pertinent information about our products to our customers.  That is why we've signed on to be Solid-State Lighting Quality Advocates - with the LightingFacts program, sponsored by the US Department of Energy. 

By taking part in this program, we pledge to support improved quality of LED solid-state lighting products.  As a luminaire manufacturer, it is our intent to:

Provide clear and consistent labeling of essential performance, measured by industry standard, IESNA LM-79, Approved Method for the Electrical and Photometric Testing of Solid-State Lighting Devices and ANSI C78-377-2008, Specification for the Chromaticity of Solid-State Lighting Products in the following categories:

and, making critical information readily available on product packaging or literature.

 

Longevity

You May Never Change Another Bulb [Longevity Graph]

OBALS LED Lighting products are designed to last as long as 50,000 hours.  Incredible longevity means that you might never change another light again.

A Generation of Light

What is 50,000 hours? It is 50 times the life of a typical incandescent bulb and 5 times the lifetime of an average compact fluorescent lamp (CFL).  In fact, if you ran one OBALS light for 6 hours per day every day, it would last for nearly 23 years. That is five presidential elections, time for a home remodeling, and the expanse of an entire generation.

Reduce Maintenance and Labor 

We all have at least one bulb that is hard to reach and needs a ladder or a pole to replace it. For a home owner, fifty times longer life than incandescent bulbs means 50 fewer chances to fall off a ladder.   For a business owner, it means significantly lower maintenance and labor expenses.

Reduce Your Waste Stream

The production and use of LEDs requires significantly less energy than incandescents or CFLs.  With OBALS LED Lighting products, you'll throw away fewer lamps and stop worrying about their mercury content.  All OBALS LED Lighting products are free of mercury and other toxic materials, a clear win for the environment.
