FBO24T8 fluorescent light bulbs for energy efficiency in all kinds of lighting. The widest stock always available from ServiceLighting.com

With the variations of smaller light fixtures, Sylvania developed a special kind of u-shaped lamp which no other manufacturer has developed, the FBO24T8.  These have been particularly used in 2x2 fixtures where space is at a premium or in cove lighting. Like most fluorescents, FBO24T8 fluorescent light bulbs are a great way to get a lot of light output with relatively little energy usage.  Some of the older fixtures used T12 lamps, but there was never anything like these and the length is fairly unusual.  You can tell the difference between a T12 and a T8 by measuring the diameter of the bulb.  The T12 is the standard cool white or warm white lamp that's been used in offices throughout the world.  As with all fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures in order to make them work. Ballasts are available from Universal, Magnetek, Osram Sylvania, among others. 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 T8 lamps. Most of the time the ballast in 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.

You can get these in almost any color you want which includes 3000K, 3500K and 4100K colors.  The FBO24T8 fluorescent light bulbs has special phosphors that give it a similar color to other kinds of lamps you might be using in your office. There have been times when people have had a hard time finding these at their local supply house, but we keep plenty in stock so you will always have a good source to buy from, eLightBulbs.com.
