Leapfrog Lighting Announces a Distribution Partnership with 1000Bulbs.com for its Line of Spec-Quality Light Bulbs
Ottawa—As of December 3, 2013, Leapfrog Lighting’s product line will give 1000Bulbs.com customers a quality spec-quality lamp choice—bulbs traditionally specified by lighting designers, architects, retailers and galleries.
“Leapfrog Lighting fills that special need, for customers who require the most consistent quality, such as lighting designers and architects,” explained Jeremy Foster, Director of Marketing at 1000Bulbs.com. “We’re pleased to be able to provide our customers with a premium spec-quality line of lamps. We were impressed with the level of testing and quality control at Leapfrog Lighting.”
“We are excited about our new relationship with 1000Bulbs.com,” said Stephen Naor, CEO at Leapfrog Lighting. “1000Bulbs.com is nationally recognized for customer service and product. Its client base covers nearly every application category in lighting.”
Many users—beyond the professional designers and architects—demand the total light quality of spec-quality lamps. At a time when the lighting industry is discussing adding color rendering standards to LED lamp certification, Leapfrog Lighting goes beyond this standard to include testing for optical performance, color consistency and glare factors.
“We recognized that Leapfrog Lighting lamps have a slightly higher price for LED bulbs, but we decided to work with Leapfrog when we considered the overall quality, particularly for spec applications.” said Mr. Foster of 1000Bulbs.com
Leapfrog Lighting’s Mr. Naor explained that lighting is a major factor in the enjoyment of life and productivity of environment. In retail and commercial environments, the value of low-glare, even light distribution and consistent color are all equally important to workplace productivity, morale and satisfaction. “Leapfrog Lighting’s mission—our entire focus as a company—is to provide the most uncompromising performing LED lamps for commercial, industrial and retail applications,” said Mr. Naor.
The current Leapfrog Lighting product line, carried by 1000Bulbs.com, includes PAR20, PAR30, PAR38 and MR16 lamps that provide industry-leading output power through high-efficiency LED source and driver electronics. The innovative lens design creates a pleasing, glare-free light suitable for use in all indoor and unexposed outdoor down-lighting applications. The lamps also deliver the high CRI and ultra-consistent color temperature control critical to multi-lamp applications in hotels, restaurants, schools, office buildings, museums, galleries, retail operations and other public spaces.
