Fluorescent Daylight tubes information
Different types of application require different versions of fluorescent daylight tubes:
Art, Design & Printing
These types of application need the best quality of artificial daylight with the highest possible colour rendering index to allow for very accurate colour comparisons. See our range of full spectrum daylight fluorescent tubes.
Offices, Shops and Factories
These types of premises quite often use high quality daylight tubes like the ones found here, and use these to promote a pleasant working environment.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects a large number of people in the UK. Specialist fluorescent tubes can be used to relieve the effects of SAD and you can find our range of lighting for SAD suffers here.
Colour Rendering Definition:
The Colour Rendering Index is an industry standard reference to a bulb on how well it renders colours of objects it is illuminating. Codes range from 0 to 100, the higher the number the more vivid and lively things look under that light. The lower the CRI rating the more ghostly (faded, dead) objects appear. If you want your items and people to look good, then high CRI is required. High CRI bulbs generally cost more to buy and cost more to operate as they have low lumen output per watt consumed. Low CRI bulbs put out low quality light, but are very cheap to operate as they have high lumen output per watt consumed.
