Metal Halide light bulbs are extremely bright and give off a white-blue colored light. Metal Halide light bulbs are typically used in parking lots, tennis courts, outdoor wallpacks, flood lights, and parking decks where safety and security are a big priority. Metal Halides lamps have a long life ranging from 9,000 to 20,000 hours. AtlantaLightBulbs.com stocks and sells Venture Lighting, GE, Sylvania, Philips & Prolume brands. These lamps are typically used in commercial lighting applications and use a metal halide ballast to start the lamp and keep the proper voltage supplied to the lamp for operation..

These codes directly correlate to the ballast that should be used to turn the lamp on and keep it in operation for years to come. Be sure to check your lamp part number and ANSI code's on the lamp and ballast prior to installation to verify a correct match.
