High Vision LED Reading Light - Floor Standing (White)
We all know how frustrating it can be trying to read in low light and studies have shown that reading in poor light can cause eyestrain and affect your concentration.
Building on our best selling high vision lamps, our high vision LED lights use our carefully designed LED bulb to give the perfect light for reading, hobbies or close work. Offering near daylight and excellent colour reproduction this constant light helps prevent eyestrain and headaches. All this with the benefits of no heat and extended lifespan.
It has been said that behind every great man there's a great woman. Less controversially, we'd say behind every great light there's a great bulb!
Our new LED bulbs have been carefully designed to offer all the benefits of new, energy saving technology and a high level of light quality, without losing the versatility of traditional bulbs.
Lasting up to 15,000 hours, our opaque bulb gives 540 Lumens of brightness at 6 Watts all with no heat! In simple terms a brighter light at a fraction of the power consumption of a traditional 60 Watt bulb. Close work and reading become easier as our bulb provides light equivalent to noon daylight (6,400 Kelvin) and offers excellent colour reproduction (80 CRI) - all helping to reduce eye strain and headaches.
Retaining the traditional shape, our bulb offers 360° light by using a clever 90 LED dice arrangement. For added safety, the glass is silicone coated to offer some resistance to life's little knocks and drops.
The versatile gooseneck and swivel head means you can adjust the angle to ensure the light always shines from the right height and from the right direction.
These functional lights are suitable for everyone and especially helpful for the elderly or those with limited vision who require a brighter light - no home or office should be without one!
