Fluorescent Luminaires are lighting fixtures designed to use fluorescent lamps. Fluorescent lamps produce light by activating selected phosphors on the inner surface of a bulb with ultraviolet energy. Fluorescent lamps are more energy efficient and longer lasting than incandescent lamps. They also have low surface brightness and generate minimal heat.
Incandescent Luminaires are lighting fixtures designed to use incandescent lamps. Incandescent lamps consist of any lamp which produces light by heating a metal filament.
High Intensity Discharge Luminaires are lighting fixtures designed to use high intensity discharge (HID) lamps. These lamps include mercury, metal halide, high pressure sodium (HPS) and low pressure sodium (LPS) lamps. HID lamps are energy efficient and last longer than other types of lamps.
