In keeping with Pablo Designs' principles of sustainable design, the LIM 360 features the latest in environmentally friendly design and materials. The Lim 360 contains no hazardous materials and uses the minimal amount of materials in its construction. The Pablo Lim 360 uses only 7W of power. That's 90 percent more efficient than a comparable halogen bulb and 40 percent more efficient than a comparable Compact Fluorescent (CFL). An impressive lifespan of 50,000 hours (an estimated 25 years of daily use) ensures that with the Lim 360, less is more - you will need less replacement lighting and get more use out of your fixture. And, at the end of its long, useful life the Lim 360 is 97 percent recyclable.
