Xtreme and Xtra Long Life Fluorescent Tubes

These tubes are the ideal choice for situations where a long life and reduced early failures are important. Typical applications include areas where the cost of replacing is high or disruption is unacceptable. High ceilings, continuous production or difficult access areas are examples where these tubes will reduce lifetime costs

Direct retrofit to standard fluorescent tubesLifetime (with HF ballast) up to 72,000 hours for Xtreme lamps, up to 54,000 hours for Xtra lampsUp to 380% longer life than standard Triphosphor tubesVery low early failure rateLumen maintenance high, never falling below 90%Warm or Cool White colour appearance

Fluorescent Triphosphor

Triphosphor tubes have longer life, a lower mercury content, better colour rendering and higher lumen maintenance than their Halophosphate counterparts. The tubes are available in a variety of colour temperatures from 3000K (warm white) to 6000K (daylight).

• Extended life expectancy which can be increased by upto 20,000 hours with the use of high frequency luminaires.
• Shatter resistant versions available which retain the fragments in the event of a breakage.
• Option of triphosphor tubes with internal reflectors, which reduce waste light and increase light output by up to 75%.
• 16mm (T5) tubes provide a compact alternative to T8 tubes, offering peak performance at +35 °C and typically provide 5% more efficiency in most ceiling applications when compared to equivalent T8 tubes.
