HQI coloured lamps


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


We're after sourcing the deep blue for a HQI 400w fitting, the ones we have are made by venture and we find they are a very light blue, we have had deep blue in the past, but are struggling to source the correct lamp.


Thanks in advance.

I have used blue metal halide from both Venture lighting and from BLV, though in lower wattages.


Neither gave a saturated blue, more of a sky blue. Bluer than daylight but not saturated. I am not aware of any readily available blue discharge lamp that gives a saturated blue. I think that you will need a blue colour filter to achieve a deep or saturated blue.


I have achieved an excellent deep saturated blue by means of cobalt blue glass in front of a blue metal halide lamp or by means of deep blue gell.
