T8 LED tubes offer a long-lasting, energy saving alternative to traditional fluorescent tubes, and are retrofit to existing fixtures, meaning installation is easy.
Ideal for lighting large commercial areas, such as warehouses and supermarkets, T8 tubes measure 26mm in diameter, and are available in a range of lengths. Unlike T5 tubes, they cannot be installed in one continuous strip, but they have an excellent lumens-to-watt ratio, meaning they're as bright as traditional tubes, but use only a fraction of the power.
The fittings of an LED T8 tube look like two horizontal pins at each end, and are sometimes referred to as G13 fittings, as the distance between the two pins is 13mm. The tubes simply slot into their light fixture, but are quite fragile, so should be handled with extra care.
