PTNA Eco Shatterproof T8 Tubes

Show more results

Greenstock offers this economic range of shatterproof T8 fluorescent tubes designed for general shatterproof purposes. Shatterproofing is an important but often over looked aspect in the lighting industry, as certain locations require more durable and sturdy lighting solutions in order to ensure that the public is protected. An example of this area would be a sports hall, where there is a high chance of the lighting being damaged due to accidents. In this case it would be very important to have lighting that won't shatter and spread glass everywhere, this is where the PTNA coating comes in. With the PTNA coating if the tube breaks the glass is instead contained within the tube shape (even if it bends the shards are kept confined) preventing harm to the people using the hall.

PTNA coated tubes must be used only in open fittings and cannot be mounted in closed fittings due to heat build up.

Please note that tubes with a PTNA coating are not suitable for food lighting or catering options as they are not IEC 61549 compliant.
