Fluorescent Tube Covers

Fluorescent tube covers from Make Great Light, also called “tube guards,” can make an amazing difference when it comes to the comfort of your office, classroom, warehouse or any other type of indoor environment you may have. Our NaturaLux light filters diffuse light from fluorescent, incandescent and even LED lighting in a way that makes it seem you’re spending a day in the sun. This natural light will make a huge difference – people will notice that difference almost immediately, and they’ll love it.

What is Full-Spectrum Light, and Why Should You Care?

Fluorescent Tube CoversFull-spectrum light – the kind you get when you use NaturaLux filters from Make Great Light – basically refers to the part of the light spectrum that’s visible. This spectrum is comprised of different-sized light wavelengths. The larger wavelengths are visible as red, and colors similar to red. The smaller wavelengths are along the blue portion of the spectrum.

The light that comes from the sun runs along the same wavelengths as full-spectrum light. That’s why we say our filters create light that mimics sunlight.

So why is this important? Research indicates that full-spectrum light may offer the following benefits.

  • It could help those with Seasonal Affective Disorder – When someone suffers from this issue, they tend to have strong feelings of depression during the winter. The main reason is that there’s much less daylight during this time of the year. Full-spectrum lighting offers that kind of light, regardless of what season it may be.
  • It could help brighten your mood – Most people simply feel better on sunny days than they do on overcast or rainy days. You won’t find anything else that will simulate a sunny day any better than NaturaLux light filters. This can mean significant psychological benefits.
  • Help with sleep and reduced stress – Full-spectrum lighting has been associated with increased production of certain hormones that help you get to sleep. These hormones, melatonin and serotonin, are critically important to you being able to get the rest you need to be at your best. There is also an association between full-spectrum lighting and a reduction in the so-called “stress hormone,” cortisol.
  • Easier on the eyes – If you’ve spent any extended period of time under incandescent lighting or fluorescent lights, there’s a good chance you also spent a good deal of time rubbing your eyes. Traditional lighting emits a lot of glare, and that can lead to a lot of eyestrain. Full-spectrum lighting, on the other hand, cuts that glare. It not only reduces strain, it might even give you a better sense of depth perception.

Still More Benefits of Full-Spectrum Lighting

In addition to the benefits of full-spectrum lighting mentioned above, there might be even more advantages to using our light covers. If you run a retail business, you’re looking for every edge you can possibly get over the competition. If your customers simply feel better when they enter your store because of the lighting, why wouldn’t they want to shop with you more and more?
