Philips Lighting Company announced the introduction of its highly sustainable new 29 watt and 31 watt fluorescent T8 U-Bent lamps.

Energy efficient and containing only 3 mg of mercury per lamp, Philips Lighting’s offering currently stands as some of the lowest mercury content T8 U-Bent lamps available in the industry and represents a new standard in environmentally sustainable T8 U-Bent lighting. 

Ideal for 2 X 2 fixtures within a broad range of retail, hospitality, office, school and hospital settings and
available in 3000K, 3500K, and 4100K color temperatures, Philips’ U-Bent lamps feature high lumen maintenance of 95 percent and a color rendering index (CRI) of 85.  The lamps are also compact (15/8 inch) and long-lasting, delivering 30,000 hours of rated average life at 12 hours per start and 24,000 hours of rated average life at 3 hours per start on electronic instant start ballasts.

Energy efficiency, environmental responsibility and sustainability have long been guiding principles behind Philips Lighting’s product and service innovations.  As a champion and leader of the national Lighting Efficiency Coalition, Philips Lighting was instrumental in helping to finalize the lighting efficiency aspect of the federal Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007, efforts for which Philips Lighting subsequently received the Alliance to Save Energy’s Stars of Energy Efficiency Chairman’s Award in September 2008.  In addition, Philips is achieving revolutionary strides in lighting design and application globally through green lighting breakthroughs being introduced in the LED arena by Philips solid state lighting divisions Philips Color Kinetics, Lumileds and others.  
High-performing, energy-efficient, long-lasting, and now sporting one of the industry’s lowest mercury contents in their class, Philips Lighting’s new 29 watt and 31 watt fluorescent T8 U-Bent lamps deliver a new level of environmental sustainability to the market’s broad array of professional lighting applications.
