Aleddra EasiRetrofit™ LED Tubes Now Available for 8-ft T12 Retrofit

Renton, WA - January 15, 2013 - Aleddra LED Lighting, a business unit of Lightel Technologies, Inc., today announces that its linear 4-ft EasiRetrofit™ LED T8 is now available for 8-ft T12 fixture retrofit project.

Aleddra LED lighting announces today that Engineered Products Company (EPCO), T8 RetroFit Conversion Kits™ (Part Numbers 14070 and 14076) can be used with Aleddra's EasiRetrofit™ T8 size LED tubes for retrofit projects intended to convert 8-foot T12 strip light fixtures to T8 LED luminaire. EPCO recommends that the T8 size LED must be UL 1598C classified in order not void any warranty.

When retrofitting an 8-foot T12 strip light fixture, it is recommended that you use EPCO's RetroFit Conversion Kit or completely replace the light fixture. EPCO's two T8 RetroFit Conversion Kits allows the contractor to easily convert the older 8-foot, two lamp T12 light fixture to an energy efficient 8-foot fixture using Aleddra's four T8 LED light tubes.

Per EPCO's specifications, the previously referenced RetroFit Conversion Kits part numbers fitted with "non-shunted" lamp holders that are suitable for use with linear LED engines (T5 and T8 shaped LED tubes) as long as the LED engine is classified per UL 1598C.

Aleddra's double-ended EasiRetrofit™ LED tubes meet the UL 1598C standard and will work with both shunted and non-shunted lamp holders. The EasiRetrofit™ lamp is the most popular T8 size LED luminaire retrofit choice for existing light fixtures because the estimated savings range between 50 to 70% for installation labor while lowering overall operating cost. Building owners, facility managers and contractors can now install 4-foot EasiRetrofit tubes for 8-foot T12 retrofit projects and obtain similar savings during installation. They can also take the advantage that EasiRetrofit™ tubes are listed on Lighting Design Lab's qualified LED product list for utility rebates.
