Hello all,

Looking for "silver green lens' similar in color to the old Coca Cola green colored bottles. Tempered glass only. Looks great on desert plants but becoming scarce.

THANK YOU

Have you checked directly with Lee Filters or Abrisia Filters? I am sure they both have full catalogs online.

Hi James, I have not checked with them. Do you by chance have website links for these guys? Appreciate it!

Hi,

First, I strongly recommend you go with Dichroic glass filters, not ordinary colored glass.

Lee Filters makes a couple dichroics that are close to the green you're looking for - Lime 8 and Jade 6.

Lime 8 is more of a true green (Trans. 26%).

Jade 6 (Trans. 32.6%) is primarily green but has a little blue in it (may better match what you call "silver green").

(By the way, transmitance values are the % of light the filter allows to pass.)

The website is www.leefiltersusa.com.

To purchase the filters, contact Tal Kendra (818) 238-1220 or (818) 434-4044 or tal@leefiltersusa.com. For special pricing, tell her Steve from CAST Lighting referred you.

I didn't find the website very easy to navigate, but looked around a little.

Here are some downloadable PDF files:

Thank you very much, I'll see what they have. This is the same lens' that Nightscaping had before and they called it "silver/green" It is tempered with what appears to be lines and swirls in the glass.

If you do choose to go with the dichroic filters keep those transmittance values in mind. You will need to use much brighter lamps than you would think in order to effectively light the object. The saturation cannot be beat mind you.

Coloured glass lenses do serve a purpose, especially in LV outdoor systems where using high intensity / high wattage lamps can sometimes over burden existing circuits and transformers. There is also the issue of fixtures not being rated for lamps over 35W when using dichroic filters.

Colored lenses fade over time, Dichroic are superior for many reasons but that is one of the biggest. Abrisa makes them all!
