Specialty Fluorescent Lamps for General Displays

LCD Lighting produces specialty fluorescent lamps for point-of-purchase (POP) displays. We offer a wide variety of colors and color correction so that sign and POP display makers can stay true to the brand.

T5, T8 and T12 Long Life Lamps and Technology
We design our T5, T8 and T12 lamps with display designers and other professional servicemen in mind, creating features that are optimized for indoor and outdoor signage, advertising displays, exhibits, and point-of-purchase (POP) displays, retail, and mood lighting.

specialty illuminationT5 and T8 Long Life (50,000 hrs.):
We designed our Long Life lamps for both hot and cold (low-temperature) operating environments. The cold weather Long Life lamp encapsulates the T8 lamp in a T12 sleeve providing a thermal insulation for the fluorescent tube to reach full brightness. For those new or retrofit applications where a more even distribution of light in the sign cabinet is required, Long Life T8’s are available with a single or diffused coating inside the T12 sleeve. The diffused sleeve provides the same benefits as the thermal lamp while softening the light to prevent hot spots on the sign or display face. The T5 and T8 hot environment lamps use a long stem mount to create stable “cold spot” for optimum output and performance.

T12 Long Life (50,000 hrs.):
Long Life T12 fluorescent tubes offer direct retrofitting with electronic and magnetic ballasts. They can directly replace existing T12 HO lamps with up to 25 percent greater efficiency. Whether building, designing, or retrofitting an existing sign or display, the Long Life T12 is easy to incorporate into your advertising or display program. We have designed these lamps to operate on magnetic and electronic sign ballasts for easy changeover.
