Reflector (R) or Bulged Reflector (BR) 30 bulbs have a reflective coating on the inside of the bulb that directs light forward. Flood types (FL) and led floodlight bulbs spread light. Spot types (SP) concentrate the light. Reflector (R) bulbs put approximately double the amount of light (foot-candles) on the front central area as General Service (A) of same wattage. Like all light bulbs, the 30 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch. Therefore, a R30 is 3.75 inches in diameter.
R/BR30 LED Replacements R30 & BR30 are one of the best applications for LED due to its directional nature. LED R30 provide similar output and beam profile characteristics while using only a fraction of the power.
