Certain specialty fluorescent task lighting is a great way to get the light
you need for a specific area. This has been true for many decades and
one of the most popular light bulbs in those years were the F15T8 fluorescent light bulbs.
F15T8 bulbs were the original fluorescent task light bulbs, which are known as T8
bulbs. Sometimes they were also used in small fixtures and older fixtures, but
they were widely used in office across the country, but now have generally been
replaced by more efficient types. The F15T8 bulb will be 1 inch in diameter and
inches long. The F15T8 is the standard cool white or warm white
lamp that's been used in task lights throughout the world. As with all
fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures in order to make
them work. Almost all fixtures for these bulbs
come with ballasts already mounted and wired. The ballast is important because
it is specific for each type of lamp. You can't change from one type of
fluorescent to another without changing the ballast in most cases.
On a rare occasion, there may be a ballast that is made for several different
types such as in the case of some kinds of energy efficient T8 lamps. Most of the time the ballast
and the lamp
are matched electrically and so it's good to make sure the ballast you have is
the right one for the lamp you choose. The F15T8 fluorescent light bulbs
typically operates on a magnetic ballast which is less efficient than it's
electronic counterpart. Look for this lamp commonly used in a display
lighting situation. We have this bulb available in several different lengths and
they are sometimes labeled as F15T8.
As mentioned before, F15T8 fluorescent light bulbs have been used in many types
of lighting that includes some things that are a little more obscure. A
real popular application is task or other types of machinery which require a
specific size light to illuminate a certain area. These could be special
types of industrial machines or task lights, but mostly it's for illuminating
areas which are usually tight it and hard to reach.
That's why we keep a full selection of these lamps for you who have applications
that use these. We have them in the popular colors including cool white,
warm white and daylight. There is even a full spectrum variety which will
give you true color and bring out whites and colors the way they should be
seen. So no matter which F15T8 fluorescent
light bulbs you have, we will have what you will need.
Because it's still very pervasive in many task lighting or displays across the
country, we make the F15T8 fluorescent light bulbs a substantial part of our
offering. It's still being sold in some new fixtures for home users, so there will probably never be a time when these will not be in use.
Remember that there are many types of fluorescent lighting, we describe some
of the most common used in commercial lighting here. The F15T8 fluorescent
light bulb is the old standard for specialized fluorescent lighting, look for it
stamped right on the side of the bulb itself. Whatever type of
