Types of Glass
There are basically four types of glass that produce just about every type of lamp including general light bulbs, fluorescent lamps in signs and industrial applications, UV germicidal lamps treating air, water and surfaces, lamps used to treat skin conditions in the dermatology field, and UV lamps for tanning purposes. The uses for UV and fluorescent lighting are endless, benefiting commercial and industrial applications worldwide.
- Open Glass – open glass designs have approximately 35% transmission, allowing for a balanced ratio of UVA and UVB waves to pass through the lamp glass. Open glass lamps are often used in the tanning industry in North America.
- Closed Glass – closed glass lamp designs are often used in tanning in Europe, which emit more UVA energy while limiting UVB energy.
- Germicidal Soft Glass – Germicidal soft glass allows for the highest amount of UV transmission with 91%, including maximum UVC exposure which is highly effective in sterilizing water and air. UVC germicidal lamps are used worldwide to eradicate bacteria, virus and harmful pathogens in countless applications.
- FS Glass – FS glass offers a combination of open and closed glass, using a very narrow phosphor band resulting in pure UVB exposure, effective in dermatological applications benefiting people with various skin conditions.
LightSources and LightTech have vast knowledge in ultraviolet radiation, and in providing the most effective wavelength in nanometers (nm) for required applications. All glass types are available in T4, T5, T6, & T8 dimensions, with cut or collared glass options.
