Aug 3, 2017: Providing superior light quality and performance, MaxLite introduces flicker-free LED T8 Lamps as the long-lasting, energy-efficient replacement for fluorescent tubes in offices, classrooms and other commercial and educational applications.
The lamps deliver smooth and flicker-free light without the distractions, eyestrain and headaches commonly associated with fluorescent light sources. Designed to retrofit linear fixtures with standard G13 (medium bi-pin) sockets using a simple ballast bypass, the UL Type B lamps operate with a dedicated internal driver for optimal performance and reliability. The lamps are DesignLights Consortium (DLC) listed and qualify for nationwide utility rebates, enabling school districts, universities and facility managers to reach a quick return on investment.
“Quality of light plays an essential role in classroom and workplace productivity, yet most schools and businesses have inefficient systems that drain energy and negatively affect morale,” noted MaxLite Product Manager Alex Truong. “Replacing fluorescent lighting with LED is the smart and simple way to reduce operational expenses, improve sustainability and create more engaging learning and working environments.”
MaxLite offers the flicker-free models in outputs of 1,800 and 2,200 lumens, with a choice of 3500K, 4000K and 5000K color temperatures. Constructed of coated glass, the 4-foot-long lamps are tested to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) standards and carry the ETL Sanitation Mark, making the lamps an ideal choice for lighting food service areas. In addition, the lamps comply with flicker test methods of Joint Appendix 10 (JA10) of the Title 24 building code requirements in the State of California.
MaxLite Flicker-Free LED T8 Lamps consume up to 50 percent less energy than fluorescent tubes and have a long, maintenance-free lifetime of 50,000 hours. The lamps are supported with a five-year limited warranty and lifetime product support.
