The Festoon lampholder offers a low profile and produces bright, uniform illumination. It is ideal for linear lighting applications and includes an articulating reflector, enabling more precise light aiming. The lampholder is compatible with festoon type lamps that are 10 watts or less and T3-1/4 size or smaller, including most lamp types. It is more widely available and offers slightly greater light output than rigid loop lamps. Xenon emits a white light that approximates the color of halogen but boasts up to a 20,000-hour lamp life and does not require lenses or special handling.
