GREEN CREATIVE releases direct plug and play T8 U-BENT DIR LED tube with true fluorescent design

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA, April 17th, 2015, GREEN CREATIVE, the commercial grade LED lighting manufacturer proudly announces the launch of its first  T8 U-BENT 16W DIR LED tube.

Part of GREEN CREATIVE’s new TITANIUM LED SERIES 4.0, the T8 U-BENT 16W DIR 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 T8 U-BENT 16W 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 T8 U-BENT 16W 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 320º. The integrated driver is stored discreetly within the tube end cap to improve thermal performance and eliminate dark spots.

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