About Lighting Color Temperatures

We recommend 4000K Natural /Neutral White and 5000K Pure White for commercial and industrial applications.

Descriptions

A description of light with a correlated color temperature ranging between 5000K (Pure White – Clear Light)  to 7500K (Slightly Blue).

Light that has a color temperature of approximately 5500K to 5600K, which has been approximated to be the color temperature of ordinary sunlight during the day under normal atmospheric conditions (Bluish Light).

A description of light with a correlated color temperature of 4000K (Slightly Vanilla).

A description of light with a correlated color temperature of 5000K (Clear Light)

A description of light with a correlated color temperature between 3000K (Orange Light) to 3500K (Yellow Light).

Measurements

The description used to describe the effect of heating an object until it glows incandescently, the emitted radiation, and apparent color, changes proportional to the temperature; easily envisioned when considering hot metal in a forge that glows red, then orange, and then white as the temperature increases.

The calculated rendered color of an object. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale), the more natural the colors appear. Natural outdoor light has a CRI of 100. Common lighting sources have a large range of CRI.

The temperature, in degrees Kelvin, of a black-body that generates light with the closest visual color match to the source being specified, i.e., a measure of the color appearance of light, not the actual temperature of the light. Term and symbol (K) is used to indicate the comparative color appearance of a light source when compared to a theoretical blackbody.
