1. Overview of Lighting Fixtures Industry
Definition of Lighting Fixtures Industry Lighting fixtures refer to that equipment which can transmit light, allocate and change the distribution of light sources, including all the parts used to fix and protect light sources apart from light sources and circuit accessories necessary for linking the equipment to power. Modern lighting fixtures include household lighting fixtures, commercial lighting fixtures, industrial lighting fixtures, roadway lighting fixtures, landscape lighting fixtures and special lighting fixtures.
