Questions about Fluorescent Light Tube Covers
Q: What size should I order?
A: The fluorescent light tube covers come in 4 foot lengths and 3 widths: T5 T8 T12. The T8 size is the most common size and about the diameter of a US quarter.
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: The tube filters would work if the LED is a standard 4′ in T5, T8 or T12 thickness.
Q: What UV protection do the light filters provide?
A: Our fluorescent light filters 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 oversized and can be trimmed to fit.
