LED lighting has many benefits, but one of its stumbling blocks is that its intensity can contribute to the fade times of standard lighting filters. In order to overcome this Research and Development has developed a new way of producing filters that ensures they last longer when used with LED lights. In fact, Zircon Warm Amber filters have been shown to retain at least 80% of their effectiveness after as much as eight months of continuous use on LED downlighters. Not only are Zircon filters longer-lasting than their standard counterparts, they’re sturdier, too. Manufactured using a 180-micron material, they are more than double the thickness of a normal lighting filter. This makes them more durable and easy-to-use.
