Phasing out of the conventional fluorescent lamp, now what?

tl lamp

What has been coming for a long time is now really going to happen: the production of the conventional fluorescent lamp will stop from August 2023. It concerns all T5 and T8 fluorescent lamps, such as TL-D, etc. Do you have to purchase new fixtures immediately? No, Fortunately not! Saled has an affordable LED alternative for this.

Since the emergence of fluorescent lighting, approximately 78 million fluorescent tubes have been installed in our country alone. This lighting is widespread in commercial buildings. But what does the phasing out of these lamps mean for you? These products will no longer be marketed in Europe after the expiry date.

What alternative is available? retrofit!

We have sustainable LED alternatives to the fluorescent lamp: our LED tubes. We can place these LED lamps one on one in your existing fixtures, we also call this retrofit. The new LED lamp is a one-to-one replacement that fits in the same lamp base and has the same look and feels as conventional lighting. This lamp can be installed quickly and easily by simply switching off the (E)VSA. An additional advantage is that it no longer requires maintenance during the remaining lifespan.

CE marking

With retrofit (replacing an existing light source for an LED light source) you also immediately comply with the circular economy. The existing fixture is re-used and converted to LED lighting. After the conversion to LED, the luminaire receives a new CE marking. This means that the fixture again fully complies with the CE guidelines. By reusing the luminaire you are consciously engaged in the sustainable use of existing raw materials and also comply with the circular economy simultaneously.

What legislation is behind this?

Through so-called regulations, the European Union enforces the same requirements for every country within the European Union. In the context of sustainability, the following regulations have been tightened up. The Single Lighting Regulation (SLR) is intended to improve the energy efficiency of lighting and thus create a more sustainable climate. The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive is an EU directive with the aim of restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
