What does CRI mean?
CRI is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.
Color Rendering Index (CRI) is the measurement of how colors look under a light source when compared with sunlight. The index is measured from 0-100, with a perfect 100 indicating that colors under the light source appear the same as they would under natural sunlight.
This rating is also a measurement in the lighting industry to help discern naturalness, hue discrimination, vividness, preference, color naming accuracy, and color harmony.
- Lights with a CRI that is measured greater than 80 are considered to be more than acceptable for most applications.
- Lights with a CRI that is measured greater than 90 is generally considered “High CRI” lights.
The high CRI means you can see objects very clearly under the light! A high CRI light not only helps you distinguish the similar colors, but also can let your eyes more comfortable.
Since 2008, we've been dedicated to design and manufacture the most innovative and easy-to-use commercial led lighting fixtures. All of our commercial led lighting have 80+ CRI ratings while our surface mount led light reach 90+ CRI ratings. They are wildly used in school, hospital, office, commercial places, especially appropriate for applications with high requirement in CRI. They are suitable for recessed installation using the clips or surface mounted which Mounts quickly and easily to junction boxes or retrofit installation. A variety of optional installations and dimensions can simplify your projects.
