Big U-Tube

Total Fluorescent Retrofit offers top quality, big U-Tube compact fluorescent retrofit (CLF) bulbs. Use these retrofits where a lot of light is required. The U-Tube is often used in commercial fixtures to replace metal halide and HPS (high pressure sodium) where the ballast has failed and has been by-passed. For example, our 85 watt CFL puts out about the same light as a 300watt incandescent. At 50k, the light out put on this is a super bright white; we're talking 5,000 lumens here. That's bright.

There are a lot of considerations that need to get weighed in before making a decision on the bulb used for any particular application. Such as, the wattage, lumens, color rendering index (CRI) in conjunction to what is being lit and what fixture is being used. To find out more about what some these considerations are and what it means to you, check out this blog article. If you think a higher wattage means a brighter bulb, then you certainly need to read the article-you will find it helpful.
