With the advent of LEDs, many in the industry saw this as the beginning of the end for tailored reflectors in commercial lighting. But as the technology has continued to progress, it is very apparent now that tailored reflectors are more important than ever in regards to LEDs. Whether the LEDs being used have a discrete chip or a COB array, there are many advantages to creating a unique tailored reflector rather than an off the shelf standard reflector as part of the overall design.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are semi-conductors that are quickly gaining popularity in applications that incandescent and halogen lights traditionally owned. As this sector grows, there are many misconceptions about LED lights. Let’s take a look at three of the most common myths and the impact of tailored reflectors on them.
