Three features make linear LED cabinet lights the ideal choice for new home build outs and custom cabinet illumination. For one thing, they are almost completely heat less and can be left on for extended periods of time. Secondly, they require only 20% the amount of power needed by incandescent and halogen light sources. Third, led energy saving cabinet lights have the longest lamp life of any fixture of their kind on the market—approximately 50,000 hours. On the average, they can be expected to last up to 10 years, negating the annoyance and needless expense of ongoing replacements and unattractive dark spots in your kitchen.
LED cabinet lighting is also some of the safest illumination you can use in a custom home. These linear lighting strips feature a unique, patented adjustable shelf wiring method that uses brass shelf supports and buss bars instead of visible, external wires. This system delivers low-voltage current safely and allows the shelf to be adjusted without the risk of short circuit or shock.
Can LED cabinet lighting offer the same quality of luminance and color rendering as fluorescent, incandescent, or xenon bulbs?
Phantom has engineered a replacement LED festoon lamp that is light years ahead of earlier LED technology. Our patented festoon design uses three bubs in close proximity to one another to produce 45-50 lumens of light per lamp. This makes them equivalent in brightness to xenon lamps, with only a fraction of the power requirements. Phantom LED festoon light bulbs operate at 1.7 watts, whereas xenon lamps operate at 5 watts—a clear savings in power for the energy conscious custom home owner.
Additionally, Phantom LED cabinet lighting strips provide a full spectrum of color temperatures that range from the warm white of the 2800K festoon lamps and the slightly cooler 2950K led festoon light bulbs on upward and to the more a more bluish, daylight white at 6500K.
Can Phantom LED Cabinet Light Fixtures be used to retrofit existing kitchens and remodels?
Absolutely. We manufacture a total of six different linear strip models to provide lighting design companies and interior decorators the full gamut of choices when it comes to replacing outdated and worn-out equipment. Phantom Agents, located throughout North, Central, and South America, provide everything from product information and demonstration to customization and ordering services.
For custom homeowners looking to “go green”, or California residents facing legislation that requires replacement of all incandescent strip lights by 2010, Phantom LED cabinet lights offer yet another LED lighting advantage. Generally speaking, most LED lamps are DC-powered lamps. This presents a problem for some users when it comes time to replace an incandescent or Xenon strip powered by an AC circuit. The extra costs of AC to DC conversion equipment, plus additional labor fees, are a needless expense for the client and a nuisance for consultants to justify. Phantom led cabinet lighting strips; however, solve this problem with AC low voltage transformers that power the lamps along existing circuitry.
How aesthetic are the actual lighting fixtures themselves?
Custom home builders must always pay attention to aesthetics as much as function. Since design considerations are paramount to winning a contract, many builders have found that the AC Series (Adjustable Concealed) provides their proposal with both them a leading technical and decorative edge over the competition.
The AC series uses custom buss bars that conduct power to each adjustable shelf, resulting in complete concealment of the wiring. Contractors can custom order an AC linear cabinet lighting strip products with either solid metal trims for horizontal applications that require additional decorative highlighting, or with a variety of specialty trims for custom undercabinet lighting or applications above eye level.
These led cabinet lighting strips lights offer a low profile, near-invisible source of illumination that allows the new homeowner to see the light, but not the fixture.
How much lighting control does the homeowner have over these lights?
All Phantom Lighting fixtures of any kind are completely dimmable and come in many popular trim colors. Regardless of the specific LED cabinet lighting are further engineered for superior optics with advanced glare shielding that directs the light toward the intended subject and away from the viewer’s eyes.
With a generous 120-degree beam spread from each light emitting diode, the resulting illumination easily homogenizes or converges to achieve a continuous linear light source. Ultimately, therefore, wine cellar lighting strips with LED Lamps offer not only an equivalent luminosity to linear incandescent strips, but an infinitely superior distribution system that minimizes the fixture and emphasizes the light.
