Eliminate T-12 Fixtures!
The T-12 fixture is on its way out. You can still buy them, but just like the 100 watt incandescent light bulb, the T-12 bulb is on it’s way out. The government is not allowing manufacturers to make them after 2012.Retrofit Existing 8' 2 Bulb T-12 Fixtures
- New Energy Efficient Ballast
- New Tombstones (This is where the bulb is attached at both ends…because they sort of look like a tombstone I guess)
- New Cover
- 4 Energy Efficient Bulbs Instead of 2
The retrofit materials are a little less expensive than a new replacement fixture, but it may take a little more labor to replace the components.
Benefit: Better light, reduced wattage, longer life bulbs, less maintenance.
This step is really not necessary unless the old fixtures are just too dirty. The labor for taking down the old and putting up a new would be pretty close to the same as retrofitting the fixture.
Benefit: Same as above, the only difference is the shell of the fixture.
This is one of the best ways to change the lighting and energy efficiency of your facility. This is taking the area, looking at the dimensions and calculating your lighting levels comparing old lighting levels to new lighting levels.
By using a photometric layout, your lighting designer can provide the least amount of fixtures necessary while maximizing the amount of light to increase lighting levels.
