Available in Stores Now: Efficient Lighting with Groundbreaking LED Technology from RZB

Congenial lighting creates a far more inviting atmosphere in hotels, restaurants and stores than is the case with cold, flickering neon lights, which tend to drive people away.

And selecting the right lighting also has an impact on your bottom line: today’s LED lamps have a far longer life span and use far less electricity than incandescent and halogen lamps.

And of course LEDs require no time consuming start-up phase, as is the case with energy saving bulbs. Hence it’s definitely worthwhile to switch to an LED lighting solution as soon as possible.

The German lighting fixture vendor RZB met the challenge of rising energy costs and the ban on incandescent light bulbs early on, with an extensive portfolio of efficient LED lamps that can be used just about anywhere.

RZB’s newest lighting solution, its Professional Spotlight LED lamp, is a genuine trendsetter. The completely silent and flicker-free performance of these lamps is achieved thanks to advanced passive cooling technology that steals the thunder in every respect from all other actively cooled lamps.

RZB’s Professional Spotlight LED lamps are compatible with all commercially available low volt halogen sockets, are fully dimmable, and replace 50 watt spots with an only 7 watt power consumption lamp (while competing products with active cooling use 10 watts of power). Thus with a service life of 35,000 hours – a realistic expectation for RZB’s Professional Spotlight LED lamps  – you can count on saving €150 per spotlight. Thanks to a colour temperature of 3000 K, these spots provide warm white lighting with 450 lumens of light output that’s easy on the eyes. And as RZB’s LED lamps are UV radiation-free, neither fabrics nor works of art fade even when lit by these products for long periods of time.

RZB's Professional Spotlight lamps are available in stores now. For further information and a product catalogue, visit
