PAR Light

A lighting fixture that uses a Parabolic Aluminized Reflector lamp. A lamp normally used as an automobile headlight that consists of a tungsten source housed in an enclosed lens, which produces an oval beam. PARs can be used in lights to provide flat or fill lighting. They come in various lens widths: Very Narrow Spot, Narrow Spot, Medium Flood, and Wide Flood. Also called 'PAR Cans', and 'PAR Lights'. An ETC Source Four PAR uses a traditional tungsten lamp paired with separate PAR lenses that can be easily rotated to move the light where needed.
