3ft LED Fluorescent Tubes

3 foot LED tubes are a great choice for replacing older type fluorescent lights in order to save energy and reduce heat output.

Do I need to remove ballast for LED lights?

The majority of brands of 3ft LED fluorescent tubes are direct retrofits, meaning that they can be installed into your pre existing fluorescent fittings (please note this is subject to brand, which must be checked before installing). It is important to note that if the ballast is left in the fitting, it will reduce the efficiency of the 3ft LED fluorescent tube, although it is still saving energy vs a fluorescent tube, it is always best to convert the fittings so that the 3ft led fluorescent tube is wired directly to mains for maximum efficiency.


What is the difference between the different colours of available 3ft LED fluorescent tubes?

The light output of the 3ft LED florescent tube does often change where it is used, and as a general guide for the light colours most individuals use the brighter whites such as cool white and daylight for locations that require good visual clarity and colours such as kitchens, hallways, studies etc. The warm tones, such as very warm white, warm white and regular white are a great option for those who need a light that is more suitable for locations such as living areas, dining rooms, bedrooms, table lamps etc. The 3ft LED fluorescent tubes offered by Crompton are made from glass, which can also be shatterproofed upon request. This can be done by contacting our sales team.

Please note that shatter proofing is available upon request and may be subject to additional cost, please contact sales for a quote.
