Paint Booth Lighting Options

t8 LED Lamps

T8 LED Lamps are an ideal energy saving choice for shops and businesses. LED Lamps are compatible with linear light fixtures from Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) including inside access, corner and general purpose light fixtures. When retrofitting LEDs into existing GFS equipment, it’s as simple as changing out the tubes.

T8 LED Lamps offer significant energy savings – up to 40 percent when compared to traditional fluorescent 32W T8 systems. Lower energy consumption allows for short payback periods, making it more cost-effective to upgrade to LED. (Actual savings depend on your system configuration) 

T8 LED Lamps emit virtually no ultraviolet or infrared light and don’t contain mercury, allowing for non hazardous waste disposal. Waste is minimized when switching to LEDs since the tubes can be installed in existing light fixtures.

You no longer have to worry about dropping and shattering your lamps. LED Lamps are glass-free, creating safer working conditions.

No need to wait for light fixtures to turn on. LED Lamps turn on instantly at full luminosity, with no flicker or buzz.

T8 LED Lamps can be easily integrated into any existing Global Finishing Solutions linear fluorescent paint booth fixtures. It’s as simple as changing out the tubes. No rewiring is required because the LED lamps use the existing electronics.

Your existing Global Finishing Solutions linear light fixtures maintain their original ETL listing when switching over to LED since LED Lamps use the existing electrical wiring.

LED lights last longer than traditional fluorescent bulbs, providing up to a 50,000 hour life span that eliminates the need to frequently replace the tubes.
