Can I swap one brand of tube for another?

Yes, as long as they're the same wattage. We offer fluorescent tubes from all the large manufacturers including Osram, Philips, Sylvania and GE. 

Different manufacturers use different product names to describe a fluorescent tubes, see below a table of the top four manufacturers and how they brand their different tubes.

**Type/Brand****Philips****Osram****Sylvania****GE**
**T5**Master TL5LumiluxLuxline/PentronPolylux/Watt-Miser
**T8**TL-DLumiluxLuxlineWatt-Miser
**T12**-SA/XLOctron-

As you can see above even though the main four brands identify tubes by different names/terms, it is still possible to swap one brand for another as long as you keep the wattage and length the same.

For more information or if you need help in identifying you fluorescent tube please feel free to contact our dedicated sales team.
