MaxLite’s Filaments Series offers vintage appeal
November 20, 2015 - MaxLite says it now provides the “nostalgic look and warmth of Edison-style filament incandescent bulbs with the energy-saving benefits of LED technology” in its new Filament Lamp Series.

Designed for retail, residential and hospitality applications, the line includes decorative bulb shapes (A19, ST18, T14, G30 and B11) to complement ceiling, pendant, wall, and post top fixtures. The lamps are constructed of a tinted, antique-looking glass cover and visible linear LED filaments. All MaxLite LED filament lamps are UL listed and dimmable with standard incandescent dimmers.
The 6.5W globe and glass-tipped ST18 styles have a light output equivalent to that of a 60W incandescent bulb, while the 4.5W A19 and tubular T14 styles are 40W equivalents. While the entire filament series is available with a medium base, the 2.5W clear glass candelabra lamp is also offered in an E12 base to replace 25W incandescent bulbs.
The series also includes a Silver Bowl A19 lamp designed for use in open pendants.
