Part of GREEN CREATIVE’s new TITANIUM LED SERIES 4.0, the T8 U-BENT 16W DIR tube was designed to match the form factor and light output of the fluorescent U-bent tube it is replacing. The T8 U-BENT DIR tube is also compatible with Instant Start ballasts so no rewiring is required during installation.
The new T8 U-BENT 16W features a thin light engine and continuous diffusing tube that provides uniform and seamless light from end to end. “Unlike other U-BENT LED tubes on the market, this lamp truly replaces a fluorescent tube in look and performance,” says GREEN CREATIVE Product Manager, Taylor Schaberg.
The T8 U-BENT 16W tube combines a micro-designed driver and compact light engine to create an extra wide beam angle. The redesigned compact light engine is more than 50% smaller on average than other tier 1 U-BENT LED tubes and provides a light emitting area of 320º. The integrated driver is stored discreetly within the tube end cap to improve thermal performance and eliminate dark spots.
The T8 16W U-BENT DIR tube comes in a frosted finish in 3000K, 4000K and 5000K CCT. In addition, each tube has a 25,000-hour lifetime, >113 LPW efficacy and is suitable for use in totally enclosed fixtures.
