Originally, The RETRO series was designed and patented around the idea that it’s a singular, modular LED engine for which we can make a wide variety of attachments to best fit the lights into your specific can sizes.

Typically, the bases offered for our RETRO series are Edison (E26), mini candelabra (E11), and bare wire. Short, medium, and tall E11 and E26 base options are all available. In addition, we do custom extensions for all bases. E39 screwbase adapters and BA15D Socket adapters are also provided so that our units can fit into those fixtures. The slopes of the reflectors allow for different depths. PAR rings that we offer are PAR 46, 56, 64. Color temperatures range from 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, to 5000K. Frequently, we do custom orders for all the unique needs of the different venues we provide lighting for. Please let us know the configuration for the RETRO series LED retrofits you may need if they’re not listed here.
