Considering CRI for Lighting Fixtures:

 

For most indoor and commercial lighting applications, 80 CRI (Ra) is the general baseline for acceptable color rendering.Besides, industrial lighting like warehouse, office building,port station, roadway etc, the 80 CRI(Ra) also can meet your need.

 

For applications where color appearance is important for the work being done inside, or can contribute to improved aesthetics, 90 CRI (Ra) and above can be a good starting point. Lights in this CRI range are generally considered high CRI lights.Types of applications where 90 CRI (Ra) might be needed for professional reasons include hospitals, textile factories, printing facilities or paint shops.

 

When comparing lighting products with CRI values above 90, it can be very helpful to compare the individual R values that make up the CRI score, particularly CRI R9.
