Our NaturaLux™ fluorescent light covers are designed to fit many different troffers
Installation of fluorescent ceiling light covers is an easy task. Facilities staff are not required, but we recommend you consult with them beforehand.
For fluorescent light covers, you will need some clear tape and a good pair of scissors.
Q: Will my lighting be much darker with the filters?
A: One of the most common reasons customers purchase our NaturaLux fluorescent light filters is because their existing lighting is too bright. Overly bright lighting causes glare, and glare causes headaches, eyestrain, visual fatigue and blurred vision. NaturaLux filters only reduce light output by 20%, allowing 80% of the light through. By reducing the over-abundance (20%) of light, the glare is eliminated.

Q: Do they work with LED lights?
A: Yes, the same properties apply to both fluorescent and LED lighting issues. Most of the time, the light cover can be trimmed to fit an LED light.
Q: What UV protection do the ceiling light panels provide?
A: Our fluorescent light panels eliminate 100% of UV up to 380nm, up to 99% up to 390nm, and up to 80% up to 400nm. Many customers with UV sensitivity have told us that they can easily work under the filtered light for an entire shift with no effects from the UV rays.
Q: What type of fixtures can I use these covers on?
A: These covers for fluorescent lights are designed for most common recessed light fixture. If your light fixture is flush with the ceiling, such as a parabolic or prismatic, you should be covered. The overlay light filters are over-sized and can be trimmed to fit.
Q. Can fluorescent light covers improve health?
A. Fluorescent light covers help mitigate some of the negative side affects of working under fluorescent light for a prolonged period of time. However, not all light covers are created equal. You need fluorescent light covers that have filtering capability to truly transform the light.
Q. Are these decorative fluorescent light covers?
A. NaturaLux light filters are clean and professional looking. Our filters don’t have fancy, distracting designs. They just make better light. Are decorative light covers a good solution for a professional setting? We don’t think so. If you are spending the money to update the ceiling light panels, you should invest in fluorescent light covers that actually change the light output.

Increase productivity by changing the harsh fluorescent lighting that employees endure daily. Help protect workers from glare, UV and provide natural light.
Office lighting is critical to workplace wellness, and should be a serious environmental consideration when discussing ergonomics.
Teachers, students and staff can all benefit from NaturaLux fluorescent light covers. Light filters can transform the classroom and help provide an optimal learning environment.
Make Great Light supports teachers in fighting against harsh classroom lighting.
Protect those with photosensitivity by using fluorescent light covers that absorb up to 100% of UVA and UVB radiation.
Help prevent symptoms of seasonal affective disorder by installing natural light filters that enhance the color spectrum to simulate natural daylight.
Anyone who’s spent long hours working under fluorescent lights knows how hard they can be on your health and well-being.
Workers who spend prolonged hours bathed in the harsh rays of these lights often suffer from bad moods, lack of focus, headaches, and eyestrain.
And yet, many offices, workplaces, classrooms, and other environments have yet to make the change to more life-affirming lighting sources.
You’re probably one of the millions of people that spend all day in an office, classroom, or other environment being saturated with fluorescent light. Exposure of this magnitude has real, measurable impacts on your quality of life.
Let’s examine a few ways this harsh light breaks down your health.
Over long periods of time, exposure to blue light, like the kind generated by fluorescent lights, can cause age-related macular degeneration as well as eyestrain and headaches.
The blue light damages retinal cells, leading to a breakdown of visual health.
Cortisol levels plummet under exposure to artificial lighting, and our moods plummet with them. Low cortisol equals higher stress, as well as a lowered immune reaction.
Along with low cortisol, fluorescent light exposure also causes blood sugar levels to increase and the release of leptin, a hormone that helps you feel full, to plummet.
These findings lead researchers to correlate habitual subjection to this kind of light source with a rise in obesity and diabetes.
Artificial light also interrupts your natural sleep cycle, called your circadian rhythm, by disrupting your sleep hormones — melatonin and serotonin.
When these substances are lowered, people have more difficulty falling — and staying — asleep at night.
Studies have proven that the more artificial light exposure you get, the harder it will be to have a normal sleep schedule.
Changing your light source seems important, but full-spectrum lights on the market are very expensive. Plus, your office manager may not want you to change out the office’s standard bulbs due to liability.
Additionally, full-spectrum bulbs need to be replaced and they still contribute to glare in an indoor-setting, which is detrimental to the health of your eyes.
Enter the fluorescent light filter cover — a simple, inexpensive, effective way to bring full-spectrum light back into your life and remove glare and UV. These lightweight lighting covers not only provide health-giving full-spectrum light, but they minimize glare and are UV-free for maximum protection.
Working under full-spectrum lighting generated by fluorescent light covers can help you produce the hormones that regulate sleep, letting you ease back into to a natural Circadian rhythm that’s healing to your body and your mind.
People who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) will notice a boost in mood after working under these lighting covers, since it’s comparable to being in mood-boosting natural sunlight all day long.
Plus, these covers reduce overall glare, which is proven to cause eyestrain and headaches. People working under the protection of fluorescent light filters will notice less burning, straining, tired eyes, and headaches.
These covers will allow you to produce the hormones that regulate mood, sleep, blood sugar, and hunger — contributing to overall physical health and a boost in disease resistance.
Painting fluorescent light covers to change the mood is not recommended. One must think of the type of paint and the potential heat from the lighting. If you are looking to increase the quality of the harsh lighting, use fluorescent light filters which can create natural light.
All NaturaLux fluorescent and LED light covers are manufactured to the highest standards. They are made from a tough, flexible modified impact acrylic.
