Projects - Safety CFL Lamp range, non-breakable, 5W to 25W


Project Brief: Develop a safe CFL to overcome concerns of mercury contamination from easily broken glass tube of light and high UV emissions. A new plastic was developed to provide a lens cover of the CFL. The lens cover reduced UV emissions by 70% and provided an impact proof cover of the glass lighting tube. Additional venting of the light was provided through a one-way membrane that allowed air flow but not mercury.
Target Market: Hospitals, Clinics, Nursing Homes, Schools, Universities, Government & Local Authority Buildings.
Market Distribution: Lighting vendors, on-line stores, electrical wholesalers, building renovation.
Project Date: 2009.
