Lighting Definitions: E Through F
As we continue with our lessons on lighting, this week we kick off with eco-friendly lighting which is a simple way to make your home more environmentally sound. Here we go with definitions E through F!
Eco-friendly Lighting – This type of lighting is made with recycled metal for the fixture and recycled glass for the bulb.
Emergency Lighting – When normal lighting fails during a storm or other type of emergency, this option of lighting kicks in.
Faceplate – A metal or plastic plate placed over an on/off switch or dimmer which goes over the wall opening to protect the wiring for the light.
Flexible Track Lighting System – With this system the suspended track holds light fixtures in place and conducts electricity to each fixture.
Floodlight – A high intensity light which is placed outdoors for vision at night. Floodlights are usually placed near garages or on patios with a motion sensor.
Fluorescent Lamp – This is a gas discharged lamp which uses electricity combined with mercury vapor to transform ultraviolet energy into visible light.
Learning more about lighting types and fixtures helps you to find what’s best for your needs. Maybe you wanted emergency lighting for your home, but weren’t sure it existed; hopefully this helped. Stay tuned for more definitions!
