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.

What is Color Rendering Index (CRI)?

post 116

Color Rendering index (CRI) is a rating scale to assign the effectiveness of a light source in rendering colors, compared with natural daylight.  A CRI of 100 is equal to natural daylight referring to the highest ability of color rendering which is by the sun itself.  On the contrary, a low CRI of 50 or less means that the light source does not render colors very well.  An acceptable CRI in fluorescent lighting is 80 to 95, which equates to an excellent color rendering ability.

Where is CRI Important in Industry?

Knowing the CRI of your lighting has great benefits and will provide competitive advantages in certain industrial applications.  For example, in the jewelry store you want your lighting to reflect the full spectrum of lighting when exposed to diamonds and jewels, showcasing your items and making them more appealing and desirable.

A high CRI index used in clothing displays makes a big difference in the appearance of clothing, casting an appealing glow in the right displays to reveal vibrant color schemes.  Food displays in restaurants, showcasing primed aged meats or delectable desserts can make the difference in a consumer’s decision to appease their appetite.  Whatever your lighting application, do not underestimate the power of pleasing, high quality lighting with a high color rendering index.

LCD Lighting, a valued partner company to The LightSources Group, has developed proprietary color rendering index technology with more rare-earth tri-phosphors revealing natural true colors.  With advanced technology, LightSources and LCD Lighting can develop custom colors for specific requirements in various applications.

Fluorescent Lamp Color Specification

With more than 100 various shades of white, it is important to choose the right color coordinates for your fluorescent lighting application.  Even the slightest variation will make a difference in many different environments.  The most effective method of defining the color is with color coordinates.

We can choose an existing phosphor blend with exact color coordinates for your application, or we can develop a unique phosphor blend just for your specific needs.

LightSources and its affiliated companies – LCD Lighting, Voltarc, LightTech, and Cerlux represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today.
