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.
