LED Tube Color Temperatures
3000K LED Tube Lights - LED tubes with a Color Temperature of 3000 Kelvin provide a warm yellow tinted illumination. This color is generally ideal for restaurant and hospitality applications as it gives off a low lit relaxing and welcoming ambience.
3500K LED Tube Lights - LED tubes with a Color Temperature of 3500 Kelvin provide a warm white illumination. This color is also ideal for providing a relaxing and welcoming environment. The color is similar to 3000K but with a whiter tint.
4000K LED Tube Lights - LED tubes with a Color Temperature of 4000 Kelvin provide a neutral white illumination. This color is typically ideal for office settings, waiting rooms, hospitals, schools, and other areas where people spend significant time for work or other activities.
5000K LED Tube Lights - LED tubes with a Color Temperature of 5000 Kelvin provide a white daylight color that most closely replicates natural sunlight. This is the most popular color for LED tube lights and can be found in all types of applications such as previously mentioned areas as well as warehouses, storage areas, parking structures, garages, and a myriad of commercial and industrial settings.
6000K LED Tube Lights - LED tubes with a Color Temperature of 6000 Kelvin provide a cool white color with a slightly blue tint. This color provides a more exotic and luxurious look. 6000K LED tubes are commonly used within laboratories and other R&D applications as well as certain architectural lighting applications and high end retail stores.
What is Color Temperature?
Simply put, color temperature refers to the color of light emitted from the bulb or fixture. The color of lighting is measured on a color temperature scale using Kelvin (K). This was formally known, and commonly referred to as the Coordinated Color Temperature (CCT).
Color temperature is measured in Kelvins, ranging from 1,000K to 10,000k. Natural sunlight varies from approximately 5,000k to 6500K, depending on the time of the day and weather conditions. The overwhelming majority of commercial and industrial lighting falls into this range.
The below graphic illustrates the overall kelvin range and equivalent types of lights that fall within this scale.
