Fluorescent tubes are a popular light source in offices. In the event sector, too, these gas-filled tubes are often screwed with their fittings to the ceilings. Discover our large assortment of fluorescent tubes and light sticks in the LTT shop!
How fluorescent tubes work
Fluorescent tubes are filled with a noble gas such as neon. Electrodes are mounted on both sides of the tube to energise the contained gas. The gas starts to glow. Incidentally, this process was invented by the Frenchman Georges Claude in the early 19th century. If the electrodes are mounted only on one side, they are referred to as light sticks. With fluorescent tubes, you can choose between different coloured light. Depending on where the lamp hangs, warm white or daylight white, for example, may make the most sense. Guest rooms in which people like to eat comfortably should be illuminated less brightly than production rooms in which precision is important.
Fluorescent tubes with black light
At LTT, you can also buy fluorescent tubes that produce black light. UV light has different application possibilities. On the dance floor, you can admire how this light highlights white clothes, white decorative elements and, of course, walls or objects treated with UV paint. Black light is the everyday term for ultraviolet radiation. Hence the abbreviation UV. This radiation, which also occurs in sunlight, is electromagnetic. The human eye cannot actually detect UV radiation itself. Before using a black light fluorescent tube in a club, it's important to ensure no other light sources will interfere with the cool effect in specific areas.
How colourful can it be?
Different shades of white and UV light are not the only available colours for fluorescent tubes on the market. At LTT, you can buy fluorescent tubes designed in all the colours of the rainbow. In this case, the tubes surrounding the neon tube are made from glass or plastic in the appropriate colour. So you can upgrade already existing tubes and light sticks to suit the party.
