T8 LED Tubes and Fittings
R60.00 – R70.00
T8 LED Tubes and Fittings:
REMEMBER TO BUY 2 LED TUBES FOR EACH FITTING : )
Low cost, slim-line and ultra light, these can easily be installed over propagators or inside a propagation tent. They can also be hung vertically to be used as supplemental lighting for dark tent corners and in between plantings.
Each Double T8 LED Fitting is 615mm long and fits 2 x T8 LED tubes. PLEASE NOTE: These fittings are not the same as older fluorescent fittings (which have ballasts and starters) and should not be used for fluorescent tubes!
Each Clear T8 LED Tube is 600mm long, has a 9 Watt power draw, 6500K colour temperature, and Lumen output of 810 Lumens. PLEASE NOTE: These tubes are not the same as older fluorescent tubes and should not be used in fluorescent fittings!
For best results 4 to 6 T8 tubes are recommended above a single large sized propagator, like the Garland XL High Dome Propagator.
The LED tubes produce hardly any heat and can be hung as close to the cuttings or seedlings as possible to maximize the light intensity.
T8 LED Tubes and Fittings Assembly:
- Always wire up and use correctly.
- Never put strain on the connected electrical wire. Do not hang from electrical wire.
- PLEASE NOTE: The holes of the hanging eyelets ( that are folded up, out of the casing, if needed, one on each side ) are too small to clip into standard rope ratchet clips. Use something like a round key-holder ring to go into the hanging eyelets and then clip the key ring into the rope ratchet clips if needed.
- Take care when handling these units as they are light-duty items and can easily damage if dropped by accident.
- For indoor use only
