T8-to-T5 Conversion Kits
T5 is the latest flourescent lamp technology that can save half of the energy of T8 flourescent lamp. However, T5 flourescent lamp has completely different set of dimensions and control gears than the T8 flourescent lamp. Thus, extra costs such as investment in new T5 housings will be required in order to change from T8 to T5.
With our T8 to T5 Conversion Kits, you can continue to use your existing T8 housing, helping you to save costs and time during installations. Most importantly, in the long run, you will benefit from lower energy bills because T5 is an energy-efficient lighting compared to T8.

Excellent Lighting Quality
|Specifications||Normal T8 Lighting||T5 Conversion Kit|
|Flickering||Very Serious (50 – 60 Hz)||Very Little (30,000 Hz)|
|Temperature||More heat||Less heat|
Reduce maintenance by over 30%
T5 tube offers 15,000 hours of service life – two times longer than the normal T8 tube (8000 hours life span only).
Ahe cost of converting existing luminaries is a fraction of a complete light fitting replacement, the payback on these tubes is very fast (usually less than 1 year).
