Green Creative releases next-generation plug-and-play T8 DIR LED tube

Feb. 2, 2015
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA - GREEN CREATIVE, the commercial grade LED lighting manufacturer proudly announces the launch of its T8 17W 4FT., T8 15W 4FT. and T8 10W 2FT. DIR LED tubes.

The T8 DIR tube is compatible with Instant Start ballasts so no rewiring is required during installation. “This plug-and-play LED tube directly replaces a traditional fluorescent tube,” says GREEN CREATIVE’s Product Manager, Taylor Schaberg. “Simply turn off the power, remove the old tube, replace it with the GREEN CREATIVE DIR tube and your job is done.”

The new T8 DIR tubes combine a micro-designed driver and compact light engine to create an extra wide beam angle. The integrated driver is stored discreetly within the tube end cap to improve thermal performance and eliminate dark spots. The result is uniform and seamless light from end to end.

Using an innovative glass body, these LED tubes diffuse heat and light more evenly and efficiently than plastic tubes. The redesigned compact light engine is more than 50% smaller than the previous generation and produces a light emitting area of 275º. The wider beam angle and glass diffuser increase a fixture’s total light distribution while replicating a traditional fluorescent tube lighting effect.

The new T8 DIR tubes come in three versions: T8 17W 4FT. DIR, T8 15W 4FT. DIR and T8 10W 2FT. DIR. All versions come in a frosted finish in 4000K and 5000K CCT. In addition, each tube has a 50,000-hour lifetime, >105 LPW efficacy and is suitable for use in totally enclosed fixtures. The T8 17W DIR and T8 15W DIR models are DLC qualified.
