DDR tube grey hanging 2x Philinea white


DDR tube in grey, hanging with 2x white Philinea

In the rough work environment (fragile) fluorescent tubes have to survive and therefore they designed these dust-free, explosion-proof and splash-proof industrial lights. In the factory hall, coal mine and laboratory, even after an explosion or accident, the fluorescent tubes had to remain lit, that increased the survival chances of the employees.

With cast aluminum end caps and a sturdy glass tube, these are practically indestructible, and have a rugged sturdy style that you won’t find anywhere else.

We clean them and convert them for consumer light bulbs and/or fluorescent tubes.

In principle, we only renovate them when there is an order, so we can make your lamp exactly to your liking! (we do have diverse examples in store) Let us know what you want!
