These optical lenses are what focus the light from the LEDs and create the beam size. One of the unique features of Lumicrest LED lights is that the beam angle can be changed! You don’t have to buy a whole new light if you just need a different beam angle to light a different piece of artwork, or a new display.
Beams can be wide (flood), medium, or narrow (spot). It’s expressed in degrees, so wide angle is 60 degrees, medium is 40 degrees and narrow is 20 degrees. We also offer very narrow lenses in 15 degrees. (The lights come with a 40 degree lens, so we don’t offer the 40 degree lens here as an option.)
Changing the lens is easy. For the TearDrop LED Track Light, unscrew the lens-holding snoot, replace the lens and screw the ring back on. It’s that simple.
What lens angle should I choose? This handy Light Coverage Calculator lets you determine which beam angle to use and where to position your light fixture.
