Troffers, troffers, everywhere!! They literally have companies pulling out their hair!!
- Ugliness. Seriously. With their often cracked diffusers, different colored tubes, bug carcass littered interiors, these fittings are about as appealing as a lava enema.
- Flicker, hum, other unwanted stimulation! Certainly improvements in ballast types have improved both issues, but improvement is still a long way from being completely fixed.
- Power hungry – 72W +ballast per fitting. Even at relatively high efficacies (80lm/W-100lm/W) the DLOR is still low which results in relatively low efficiencies (usable light).
- Mercury. Hg. No matter how its written mercury is not only a potential hazard if a tube is broken or disposed of properly, but best case scenario it’s expensive to recycle.
- Low CRI, colour shift, and other problems with colour rendition, not the best options if you need to see colours correctly!
- Size – troffers are typically deep fittings (to house tubes, ballasts, reflector) and not ideal for applications where space is sparse.
- ~50% reduction in power use, our standard slimline Corona™ Panel is 38.5W – the average T8 troffer is ~80W (72W + ballast).
- 50,000 hour lifespans (L70) eclipses typical lifespans of fluoro tubes (~15,000 hrs) – cutting maintenance and replacement costs.
- Ridiculously good looking. The homogenous colour distribution gives the appearance of skylights, and with no entry for “critters” they maintain their clean/cool look for life.
- Shhhh…no audible hum from the
fittings or led drivers. It’s no wonder
we supply a lot of libraries.
Corona™ 1200x300mm 40W Ultra-slim Panel
- No Flicker either – on/off in an instant and dimmable versions perfect for ambient light or motion sensors.
- CRI >80 – better colour rendition, and better still if required with a CRI>90 version.
- No mercury, no toxic chemicals, and if you drop one no broken glass.
