What is CRI for lighting fixtures?

CRI stands for Color Rendering Index, which is a metric used to measure a light source’s ability to accurately reproduce object colors. CRI is a scale from 0 to 100, with higher values indicating better color reproduction. Generally, light sources with a CRI value above 80 are considered to have good color rendering ability.

What are the classifications of lamps and lanterns CRI?

In practical applications, CRI is often divided into different levels to help users better understand the performance of the light source. The following are common CRI level classifications:

  • CRI 90-100: Light sources in this range are considered to have excellent color rendering ability, accurately reproducing object colors. They are suitable for areas that require highly accurate color reproduction, such as art galleries, museums, medical facilities, and photography.
  • CRI 80-89: Light sources in this range are considered to have good color rendering ability, reproducing object colors well. They are suitable for places such as homes, offices, and retail stores.
  • CRI 70-79: Light sources in this range have average color rendering ability and can barely meet general lighting needs. They may not be suitable for applications that require high color reproduction.
  • CRI 60-69: Light sources in this range have poor color rendering ability and may cause color distortion. These light sources are not suitable for scenes that require high color reproduction.
  • CRI 0-59: Light sources in this range have very poor color rendering ability and severe color distortion. These light sources are not suitable for any application that requires accurate color reproduction.

Choosing the appropriate CRI level light source based on the actual application and color reproduction requirements is crucial when selecting lighting fixtures.

Which places require high CRI LED track lighting?

Different rooms and spaces have different CRI requirements, and places that require color presentation usually require high CRI lighting fixtures, such as clothing stores, jewelry stores, cosmetic stores, art galleries, exhibition halls, etc. Below we share in detail the importance of high CRI for various spaces.

Clothing stores

Clothing stores need to accurately reproduce clothing colors and textures so that customers can better choose suitable clothing. High CRI LED track lighting can make clothing colors more realistic and highlight the production process and fabric details of the clothing.

Jewelry stores

Jewelry is usually made of various gems and precious metals, and the color and luster of these materials are crucial factors in their value. Using high CRI lighting can accurately reproduce the color and luster of gems and precious metals, making them more attractive and increasing jewelry sales and customer satisfaction.

Cosmetic stores

Cosmetic stores need to accurately reproduce the color and texture of cosmetics, especially for products such as lipstick, which have many color classifications. High CRI LED track lighting can make cosmetic colors more vivid and the texture more realistic, making it easier for customers to choose the corresponding color of the cosmetic product.

Art galleries and museums

Art galleries or museums need to maintain the purity of the artwork’s colors and clarity of details, especially the 3D texture of oil paintings. High CRI LED track lighting can help the audience appreciate the details and texture of the artwork better. In art galleries and museums, the protection and preservation of exhibits are also essential. Using high CRI lighting can reduce the radiation of ultraviolet and infrared rays, thereby reducing the damage and aging of exhibits and prolonging their lifespan.

High-end restaurants

Restaurants need to create a comfortable and warm atmosphere and accurately reproduce food colors and textures. High CRI LED track lighting can enhance the customer’s appetite and dining experience while creating a comfortable dining environment.

Automobile showrooms

Automobile showrooms need to accurately reproduce the color and texture of automobiles to provide customers with the most realistic viewing experience. High CRI LED track lighting can make automobile colors more realistic and also benefit mediaphotography and video shooting, allowing the cars to be presented better on the screen.

Film and video production

Film and video production requires accurate reproduction of colors and textures of people and scenes to create more realistic visual works. High CRI LED track lighting can make film and video works more vivid, with clearer details, and thus produce more exquisite works.
