A parabolic aluminum reflector, or PAR bulb, produces focused light. LED PAR lights typically find use in recessed lighting or flood lights for retail stores, hotels, hospitals, schools, offices, and many more applications.
Beam angle describes the spread of the light from a bulb. Angles vary from narrow spot angles to wide flood angles.

The numerical value following “PAR” denotes the diameter of the bulb in 1/8 of an inch.
