Introducing Halo LED Recessed Lighting!
The Halo LED recessed downlight features a Halo LED module that installs into a new construction housing or into existing Halo (and All-Pro) housings. Using less than 15 watts, the recessed fixture delivers over 600 lumens (comparable in light output to a 65 watt BR30 lamp or 18 watt CFL luminaire). The dimmable LED module provides: excellent color quality (over 80 CRI), warm quality of light (3045K nominal), good cutoff, low glare and lasts 50,000 hours.
