Adding a colored fluorescent tube cover to a linear lamp is one of the most affordable ways to create a unique lighting design. This product fits right over a T8 linear fluorescent lamp to add a green tint to the light. Its durable design makes it ideal for fluorescent lighting, as it adds an extra layer of protection in the event that the T8 lamp accidentally shatters.
Green Tinted Light: this fluorescent tube cover alters the color of the light emitted by the fluorescent light bulb from white to green
Transmittance: has 0% transmittance below 370 nanometers; eliminates some but not all UV rays [Caution: The primary purpose of this tube cover is to create green light from white light - not to protect rare and delicate artifacts from UV rays.]
Polycarbonate Plastic: durable polycarbonate plastic sleeve helps to contain shards of glass and phosphorus coating if the fluorescent lamp should break or shatter
Length: nominal length of 4 feet; can be shortened in the field with a sharp tool
Diameter: the inner diameter of the tube guard is 1.22 inches, which is designed to fit over a T8 linear fluorescent lamp that measures 1.0 inch (8/8in) in diameter
Polypropylene End Caps: each tube guard cover includes two black end caps that are heat-resistant (not shown in the image above)
Not for High Output Lamps: these tube guards should be used only with standard T8 linear fluorescent light bulbs - not with T8 high output lamps [Caution: T8HO lamps will melt these tube guards.]
