Broken fluorescent lamps are more than just an inconvenience – they’re a safety hazard waiting to happen. Not only can people suffer severe cuts on shattered glass, but the mercury these bulbs contain can be released into the air, harming humans and nature alike. No one likes to lose a light bulb to breakage, but with safety-coated fluorescent lighting from MEBULBS™, you can limit the damage to just the lamp. We have an assortment of T8 and T12 safety fluorescent tubes that are manufactured to the same high standards as our regular linear fluorescents while offering peace of mind for your home, business or public building.
Accidents happen with lights, whether that means dropping them on the pavement during transport or hitting them with a stray object while in the fixture. These single pin and bipin lamps are covered in a 16 mil polymer coating that fully seals the lamp. If it does shatter, the broken glass will be completely contained inside the coating. This design meets all safety standards, including those of the FDS, USDA, OSHA and NEC. And as a bonus, this polymer filters out up to 85 percent of UV radiation, reducing the fading of clothes and other items that are on display beneath them.
Beneath this liability-reducing safety feature is the Xtreme Duty™ fluorescent technology MEBULBS is known for. You’ll get the same brighter, whiter light with Xtrabrite™ phosphors for more accurate coloring and lumen loss of less than five percent. With a lifespan up to 10 times that of standard residential fluorescent lamps, you can keep the ladder in storage longer between changes. Many hospitals, office buildings, schools and stores prefer safety-coated fluorescents because of their increased protection and reduced ultraviolet light, and you can experience this industrial quality as well at a competitive price. Trust a company that has been at the forefront of lighting design since 1974 when you choose MEBULBS.
