Self-Ballasted Lights

For no obligations, free consultation CONTACT us now!

Our Self-Ballasted light is T5 Retrofit. It is elegantly designed for quick and easy installation, directly mounting onto the traditional T8 fitting.

Our product's main advantages are;

1. It uses tri-phospor powder to create:

  • higher luminance in comparison to halogen powder used in conventional T8.
  • minimal lead (Pb) content.
  • super long life span.

2. It is self-ballasted resulting in:

  • immediate startup.
  • maintenance free - no longer need the starter and the choke (magnetic ballast).
  • electrical consumption savings of approximately 50%.

3. It is available in daylight color and the size can be 4ft and 2ft.

4. Below is the comparison table of T5 retrofit against T8.
