Linestra Light Bulbs
Linestra light bulbs are an incandescent light source though some people mistakenly believe it to be a fluorescent type. It has two side prongs which go into a special socket. They are also known as Osram Linestra or Philips Philinea light bulbs. The product shown here are the Osram variety although there really is no difference between either brand. These light bulbs give off a wonderful light that is very flattering to skin-tones so you'll often see them used in bathrooms, locker rooms or washrooms. These are rated for 1000 hours and can be dimmed like other incandescent light bulbs using a standard incandescent rotary or slide dimmer. They're easy to replace but you probably want to carefully apply light pressure to both sides of the lamp when you push them into the socket. Some people have had them crack one one side if they are installed unevenly. They are a more delicate type of light and they will last longer if you keep them from external vibration and the install precautions mentioned earlier. For those of you who want a longer life version of this, we do have LED replacement versions for all three with a 25,000 hour rating. This type of linestra lamp has no filament and is much sturdier than it's incandescent counterpart. - A flattering light for flesh tones. - Dimmable like any incandescent light bulb. - 120 volt standard. - 150 watt = 39 3/8 inches. - 60 watt = 19 2/3 inches. - 35 watt = 11 3/4 inches.An overview of Linestra and Philinea light bulbs.
