Lighting - Decorative Light Bulbs | Spec. Sense

20 Dec 2019

In this episode of Spec. Sense, Vance explores the different decorative light bulb shapes. You'll learn how to measure and how to choose a decorative bulb.

The B-Shape (blunt-tip), C-Shape (candle) and G-Shape (globe) are the most common decorative shapes and typically use the E12 intermediate screw base. All light bulbs use a code to describe the shape, size and base type. This code can be determined by a few simple measurements.
