T8 LED Tube (Shatter Proof Film Glass) is a highly flavored in NA countries including US and Canada. It uses a PET film with inner glue to warp a clear glass tube body to create a shatter proof glass tube. In case of breakage, the inner glue could effectively hold the glass pieces inside the PET film to reduce secondary injury. It is particular safe and reliable, as well as being an economical and most commonly used indoor lighting product. The product is certified by UL, DLC for NA markets, and certified by TUV and SGS with CE, RoHS, ERP for EU markets.
Our product Is produced with high quality SMD 2835 chips of high lighting efficacy (80lm/W – 160lm/W) and color rendering (CRI70-97). We offer full range of color temperature, ranging from 3000-6500K, to best fit different installation environment. The product beam angle is 320°.
For glass tube body, it is optional to use single color frosted PET film or double color frosted PET film (opal color at the back). Both offer a good diffusion and a high lumen efficacy. The end cap is made of fire resistive PC material of different length, or aluminum end cap of different outlook and coloring.
The product uses high quality IC driver to power on, which could be single voltage input (AC185-265V) of power factor >0.5, or universal voltage input (AC85-265V) of power factor >0.9. It is designed to input at single end in order to ensure electrical safety and fitting in a circuit with direct AC input. Besides, to do direct replacement of T8 fluorescent tube in existing magnetic ballast powered circuit, the single end input tube could be short circuit at the other side to become ballast compatible, given the start is replaced with a LED fuse. In case of existing fluorescent fixture with ballast to be removed or new double end fixture, tube could also be designed in double end connection to fit in. The lifetime of the product is over 25,000 hours, with a warrant period of 2 years.
The product is usually adopted as high-quality tube light products in construction projects. It could be use in theater or art gallery with rotatable end cap to create a wall washing light effect. It is also adopted as lighting tube in railways or metro which product of higher durability and stability towards vibrations and shocks, as well as breakage is much preferable. Aluminum and PC tube is also suitable for outdoor tri-proof fixture which good heat dissipation in enclosed fixture is necessary to ensure longer lifespan and reduced replacement cost. For school and hospital where failed tube replacement work should be reduced to least, long life LED product employment is optimal to achieve to an undisturbed teaching and surgical environment. In case of new parking lot or garage lighting projects, direct AC input LED tube with simple wiring fixture could be the most economical solution and a simple solution to work with.
