Spot and Flood Incandescent Light Bulbs


Incandescent Spot and Flood Light Bulbs

Illuminate wide, dark areas easily with flood light bulbs. These broad-beamed lights can be used in indoor or outdoor settings and are ideal for areas with low-light conditions. Stage lighting, sport stadiums, and underwater activities commonly require reflector light bulbs.

Take care when placing these bright lights, as they can cause glare and cast light where it's not intended. Reflector light bulbs are ideal for recessed can fixtures and track lights. When pairing the bulbs with can fixtures, be sure the size of the fixtures matches the size of the bulbs. Most of these bulbs have medium (E26) bases to fit the most common traditional socket size. However, the bulbs are also available in other base types like intermediate (E17) and mogul (E40), making it likely that you’ll find the bulb you are looking for to fit the socket size.

For tips on where and how to position your flood light bulbs, ask our knowledgeable staff or read How to Identify Your Reflector Light Bulb for more information. With a greater selection of items to choose from, you'll get better service from than from other online lighting retailers.
