Par Cans

Historically Par Cans were named for the fact that the fixture, the "can" held a Parabolic Aluminum Reflector.  It was the lamp that did the actual work.  Some lamps would be wide flood and some would be other sizes like a narrow spot.  Some would be circular in output and some would be oval.  The oval ones could be rotated to adjust which way you would want the light to go.  Today, while we still call conventional par cans the same we seem to have included LED fixtures into this category.  They really don't belong here but the artistic use of a par can was first taken over by the LED units, so thus the name stuck.  All in all they are all wash lights that can be colored. - Louie Lumen
