Green Creative releases direct plug-and-play LED T8 tube with true fluorescent design

April 20, 2015
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Green Creative, the commercial grade LED lighting manufacturer, proudly announces the launch of its first U-BENT 16W DIR LED T8 tubes.

Part of Green Creative’s new Titanium LED Series 4.0, the U-BENT 16W DIR LED T8 tube was designed to match the form factor and light output of the fluorescent U-bent tube it is replacing. The T8 U-BENT DIR tube is also compatible with instant start ballasts so no rewiring is required during installation.

The new U-BENT 16W LED T8 tube features a thin light engine and continuous diffusing tube that provides uniform and seamless light from end to end. “Unlike other U-BENT LED tubes on the market, this lamp truly replaces a fluorescent tube in look and performance,” says Green Creative product manager Taylor Schaberg.

The U-BENT 16W LED T8 tube combines a micro-designed driver and compact light engine to create an extra wide beam angle. The redesigned compact light engine is more than 50% smaller on average than other tier 1 U-BENT LED tubes and provides a light emitting area of 320°. The integrated driver is stored discreetly within the tube endcap to improve thermal performance and eliminate dark spots.

The 16W U-BENT DIR LED T8 tube comes in a frosted finish in 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K CCT. In addition, each tube has a 25,000-hour lifetime, >113 lm/W efficacy, and is suitable for use in totally enclosed fixtures.
