Fixtures Wired for Internal & External Driver LED Tubes Add Convenience, Save Installation Time for Customers

Farmingdale, NY - LaMar Lighting Company has received a UL approval for factory installation of internal and external driver LED tubes in a wide range of its surface-mount luminaires. The new capability allows LaMar to offer the latest LED technology within a broad line of luminaires quickly and cost-efficiently and streamlines the purchasing and installation process for customers.

“LaMar is always called on to quickly come up with the most cost-effective lighting solution but without compromising product quality,” said Jeff Goldstein, CEO of LaMar. “In the ever-changing LED products market, we must be able to incorporate new technology quickly and deliver solutions our customers have come to expect. Collaborating with UL on the compliant, safe and effective procedure to install LED tubes in luminaires at our factory will help us do just that.”

LaMar employs only high-quality LED tubes and drivers from leading manufacturers, including LED tubes made in the USA. LED T8 commercial-grade lamps are an energy-saving alternative to traditional T12 or T8 fluorescent lamps and can be factory-installed in many surface-mount luminaires.

The LED T8 lamps combine innovative optical and mechanical design features. Four-foot external driver LED tubes offer up to 2,900 lumens at 29.0W at the lamp and up to 60,000 hour rated life. Customers can select among three color temperatures (3500K, 4100K and 5000K), two- and four-foot lamp sizes and optional 0-10V dimming for external driver LED tubes. The lamps are glass-free and are suitable for damp and dry indoor locations. Fixtures wired for internal driver LED tubes are also available.

Lamps come on instantly with a full light output and stable lamp-to-lamp color, without the need for warm-up. They generate zero UV emissions and are easy to replace. Most lamps are DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) qualified, and LaMar offers driver and tube warranty for up to five years.
