Vibe LED Tubes are now replacing fluorescent tubes as a more efficient and environmentally friendly way of lighting while also replacing lower quality LED tubes that don’t live up to their estimated long life. They are available from ANL Lighting Australia Pty Ltd .
LED lights offer dramatically reduced operating costs over their super long life due to their efficiency. LED does not contain the harmful mercury and phosphorus that is found in fluorescent lights making them even more environmentally friendly.
LED is still a relatively new lighting technology and some manufactures are still in the dark. While LED tubes have an incredibly long lamp life of up to 80,000 hours, lower quality products are failing at only 10,000 hours due to the drivers shutting down. Standard LED tube models have built in drivers that will last for only 10,000-30,000 hours before shutting down after which the whole tube is rendered useless.
Vibe Lighting is at the forefront of LED technology with replaceable adapters on all their Vibe LED Tubes achieving the projected lifetime of 80,000 hours saving an extra 50% on replacement costs.
Vibe Director Phillip Hill: “When the driver eventually fails, instead of having to replace the entire LED tube, you need only to replace the adaptor. This makes the Vibe LED Tube the most economical and cost effective option for replacing standard fluorescent tubes.”
A major advantage that LED has over fluorescent tubes is that LED lights don't flicker. Flicker and glare can impact learning and the ability to concentrate while also causing headaches. Although humans cannot see fluorescent lights flicker, the sensory system can. LED Tubes operate a constant colour output resulting in no flicker.
Vibe Lighting expects a strong uptake for the new LED Tubes from schools, offices, retail stores and other consumers looking for a long-lasting, green alternative to fluorescent lighting.
The Vibe LED Tube boasts a host of key advantages including a wide range of colour temperatures and wattage options. The LED Tube is available in Warm White, Pure White, Daylight White and Cool White and in lengths of 600mm (9w), 1200mm (18w) and 1500mm (22w).
The VIBE brand of light fittings is synonymous with style and quality. VIBE supplies a growing network of lighting retailers, hardware stores, electrical wholesalers, landscape designers, architects and building suppliers with a wide range of lamps, light fittings and other electrical merchandise.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and arguably produce the healthiest form of light, known as Full Spectrum, the closest to natural sunlight available. LED bulbs and tubes use diodes to produce light making them the most energy efficient of all the lighting systems. LED lights do not require starters or ballasts and so are more durable and longer lasting than their fluorescent counterparts. Expect up to 80,000 hours from an LED.
