Fluorescent Tubes

When we talk about fluorescent tubes you may think of a sharp bright light flickering slightly in an old fashioned kitchen. However this type of lighting technology has come a long way in recent years. They have always been a good choice when it comes to being cost effective and energy efficient. However now there is a lot more choice in terms of colour temperature and size meaning they are appropriate for a wider range of applications all around the home.

Things to consider when buying fluorescent tubes:

Cap size

To avoid frustration it is essential that you order the correct cap size for your light fitting. At Lighting Direct we offer a huge variety of tube sizes, so you are bound to find the one you need.

When a tube is described as a T5, T8 or T12 the 'T' simply stands for tube while the number refers to the diameter of the tube in 8's of inches. Therefore the diameter of a T8 tube is 1 inch, 8/8 = 1 inch.

Colour Temperature?

As mentioned before fluorescent tubes now come in a much wider range of colour temperatures. This makes them more suitable to areas that require softer illumination such as under cabinet kitchen lighting.

2700 -3000K warm white (A comforting and relaxing light)

3001 -3500K white (still quite a relaxing tone but a little bit sharper)

3501 -4000K cool white (This is moving to a more practical type of task lighting, possibly for the kitchen)

4001 -6000K Daylight (obviously a very sharp clear light suitable for a working environment)

Fluorescent tubes have many practical applications for both the home and the workplace. At Lighting Direct we have a huge range of robust high quality tubes for you to choose from. Take your time and browse through our extensive range.
