Metal halide lamps are lit by an electric arc that passes through a gas that is composed of vaporized mercury and metal halides, and are part of the HID family of lighting technologies. Metal halide light bulbs are very similar to mercury vapor bulbs, but they have the added metal halides which improve color rendition. Metal halide lights feature 75 – 100 lumens per watt, which makes them more efficient than their mercury vapor cousins, and much more efficient than incandescent lights.
Metal halide lights provide a high intensity white light which is great for lighting large outdoor areas such as parking lots and sports arenas, and large indoor areas like warehouses, factories, and large retail stores. Metal halide light bulbs are growing rapidly in popularity for their efficiency and useful brightness, and are many business' first choice for lighting large areas efficiently.
