Forge Europe Updates Paragon MR16 – Enhances Driver Compatibility

Following on from the successful launch of our Paragon MR16 LED lighting products we are pleased to advise the release of a new, updated design to the lamp that delivers enhanced compatibility with existing transformers available on the market.

“The introduction of this modification provides much greater flexibility in the design of energy efficient lighting systems” says Laura Duffin, Sales Account Coordinator at Forge Europa.

This high quality LED solid state replacement lamp is designed for domestic, commercial and retail lighting, and is a direct replacement for existing MR16 lamps. The Paragon MR16 provides exceptional performance of up to 420 lumens and is aesthetically and intelligently designed to deliver long life, exceeding an incredible maintenance free 45,000 hours (LED and Electronics).

The Paragon MR16 is available in options to cover spotlight to general illumination applications with beam angles 15, 25, 40 and 90 degrees, and with colour temperatures from warm to cool white, tailored to customer specifications.

The Paragon MR16 is available Forge Europa branded or under private label, and comes with the reassurance of a five year warranty.

All new Paragon MR16’s will be manufactured with this improvement as standard, and the extended list of transformers can be found on the Paragon MR16 section of the website.
