One Lamp - Three Great Benefits

Better Light

Think fluorescent tubes mean poor light quality? Think again!

Starcoat® technology gives GE Ecolux® T5 lamps the best color rendering (up to 86 CRI) and 92% maintained light output.
That means more light over life and the highest color quality to put your business in a better light.
We've refined our technology to bring you the color quality you need, with the long life and energy efficiency you expect from fluorescent bulbs.
GE's special barrier coating applied on the inside of the Starcoat® T5 Ecolux® enhances lamp life and delivers superior lumen maintenance.

The Starcoat® T5 Ecolux® also offers a wide range of color temperatures 3000K - 6500K (Including 5000K) to fit your lighting needs. At a 5000K color temperature the Starcoat® T5 Ecolux® delivers an appealing crisp and cool "whiter" light.

The Starcoat® T5 Ecolux® offers high lumens per watt meaning high output and high efficiency. The more lumens per watt allows for a brighter light and a more visible atmosphere.

GE Lighting Tip

Since fluorescent lamps have such a long life compared to incandescent lamps, eventually the brightness (lumen output) of the lamp will begin to decrease.
Because of this, fluorescent lamps have an initial lumen rating and a mean lumen rating. The mean lumen output is measured at 40% of the lamp life.

NOTE: Decorative or colored bulbs do not have a lumen rating since they are not considered a primary source of lights, only decorative.

GE Lighting Quiz

Regular fluorescent light bulbs used in your home and office do not produce a hazardous amount of ultraviolet light (UV). Most light sources, including fluorescent bulbs, emit a small amount of UV, but the UV produced by fluorescent light bulbs is far less than the amount produced by natural daylight. (Ultraviolet light rays are the light wavelengths that can cause sunburn and skin damage.)
