July 18, 2014

BLT Direct are renowned for their vast collections of energy-saving light bulbs for a multitude of popular applications, but with their range of fluorescent tubes for specialist functions, they have also proven their commitment to various niche markets. Cementing themselves as the comprehensive supplier of any and all lighting solutions, their range of fluorescent tube lights are suitable for aquariums, butchers, plant-growing and various other applications, at affordable prices for all.

When it comes to fluorescent tubes, most people think of places like schools, factories, hospitals and offices; large buildings with plenty of people and open spaces to illuminate. However, the fluorescent light source is highly versatile; BLT Direct have fluorescent lamps that are germicidal, multiphosphor, photographic and suitable for industrial processing. The specialist and unusual lamps are what sets BLT Direct apart from the crowd when it comes to lighting supply. Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct, says, "We supply plenty of conventional light bulbs for regular applications, but we also pride ourselves on being able to offer the more unusual and specialist lighting solutions to those who need them. Whether someone needs a blacklight or a suitable lamp for their aquarium, we've got the answer in our fluorescent tube department." One of the more popular of the niche fluorescent tubes is the gourmet option, which is primarily used in the cold display cabinets in catering, supermarkets and butchers shops. With an impressive lamp life of 10,000 hours and high energy-saving properties, these bulbs are perfect for such commercial uses, and are a great way to shine a flattering light on food and consumables. BLT Direct also stock a range of fluorescent tubes which have been designed to display fish, plants and coral at their best in aquariums and similar instances. They're also great for simulating daylight for reptiles, and providing artificial UV light for captive birds that aren't exposed to sunlight as often as they need to be. Manufactured by pet care experts Arcadia, this collection contains everything an animal lover would need to make sure their unusual pet's environment is comfortable for them. Lastly, the Grolux fluorescent tubes available are ideal for cultivating healthy plant growth in areas that don't have sufficient daylight. With high levels of red and blue radiation to promote growth, the tubes are perfect for use in greenhouses, indoor gardens, florists and other horticultural locations -- and with their long lamp life and relatively low prices, they are the best way for those with green fingers to get their plants to bloom.
