Lighting Science says its new Durabulb is line of shatter-resistant lamps that is designed to withstand bumps and drops without breaking into a million pieces.
Blending contemporary styling with rugged polycarbonate plastic, the lamps resist breaking or shattering and provide omni-directional illumination.
“The Durabulb is just one in a series of differentiated, forward-looking new products that Lighting Science is introducing this year as we re-emerge as a leader in the rapidly commoditizing LED lighting marketplace,” says Pete Rumsey, executive vice president of business development for the company. “We’re not sure if it’s the toughest bulb on the block, but we had a lot of fun putting the Durabulb to the test, including dropping it from an eight story building and hitting it with a tennis racquet.”
Durabulb uses 80 percent less energy than comparable incandescent bulbs and, because of the material, uses about 30 percent less material than similar products.
The product is available in dimmable and non-dimmable 60-watt equivalent options, an ideal replacement for any A19 compatible luminaire in indoor application. It lasts up to 10,000 hours—10 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
