Most common types of Sylvania LED tube applications, like troffers, use T8 bulbs. Sylvania T8 LED tubes work as an energy efficient replacement for wasteful fluorescent tubes. LEDVANCE Sylvania T8 lamps come in 2, 4, or 8-foot tube lengths and feature a one-inch diameter. With a wide beam angle, LED tubes work great in places that need consistent lighting, like warehouses, offices, schools, and garages.
Some Sylvania T8 LED tube lights make the switch from fluorescent to LED easy. If the bulb is ballast compatible, you can simply swap out your existing fluorescent tube for a Sylvania LED equivalent in your current fixture without having to change anything!
A LEDVANCE Sylvania LED tube bulb can see use in a variety of commercial and residential applications. They can see use in schools, offices, kitchens, warehouses, retail stores, and even your home! You must install LED tubes in fixtures with a ballast or in fixtures that bypass the ballast.
Get rid of those old, blown T8 fluorescent bulbs in your restaurant kitchen or the buzzing bulbs in your office space and replace them with an instant start and energy efficient LED option!
We carry three different styles of LEDVANCE Sylvania tube bulbs: the T5, T8, and U-Bend. T5 tubes offer a small diameter than T8 tube lights at 5/8 of an inch or 0.625 inches around. T8 tubes offer 8/8 inches or 1 inch in diameter. T5 tube lights often see use in cove lighting, display lighting, or indirect lighting applications. Featuring a U-shaped design, U-bend tube bulbs often see use in retail stores, offices, and healthcare facilities.
When choosing the lighting for your space, consider the color temperature as well. Color temperature indicates the color of the light emitted by the bulb. LEDVANCE Sylvania tube bulbs have a color temperature between 3000K-5000K.
When it comes to LED tube bulbs, only certain bulbs can work with a ballast. Ballast compatible (plug-and-play) and hybrid options may connect to an existing ballast. Other connection types that cannot connect to an existing ballast include ballast bypass/direct line voltage and LED driver installation:
