  • The existing T8 electronic ballast stays in place. To retrofit, replace the fluorescent bulb with the Pure Bright LED tubes. Your existing ballast acts as the driver.
    Smart Driver Technology: Works With All T8 Ballast Types
  • The Pure Bright Smart Driver Technology has been in development for over five years. With UL Listed approval-the most rigorous NRTL requirements-there is no requirement to first compare ballast models for in-field installations. Lower testing approvals require installers to open ballast compartments, and to replace ballasts with those listed on UL-required installation instructions.

Construction and Materials

  • The lightweight aluminum heat sink efficiently draws heat away
    from the LED diodes.
  • Lens materials are recognized and certified
    by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to flammability specification
    UL-94 V-0.
  • Pure Bright has been successfully tested on active oil
    tankers running 24/7 for over 42,500 hours (references
    available) under severe vibration conditions, with units installed
    in the boiler rooms operational at an average temperature of
    117°F without failure.

Optical System

  • 320° wrap-around lens design places 22% of the illumination
    above the horizontal plane, and 78% below.
  • This semi-direct designation enables full illumination of the fixture and ensures
    optimal lighting distribution.

    UL Mark Field Installation Implications

 

  • The UL Listed mark appears on end products suitable for field installation.
  • Products are covered by UL’s Follow-Up Services program to verify that the end products continue to be manufactured in compliance with UL’s safety requirements.
  • UL Listed Marks appears on end products suitable for field installation.
  • Facility liability insurance policies recognize this mark. Works with all T8 ballasts. No electrician needed.
  • The UL Classified mark appears on products that UL has evaluated but only with respect to specific properties, a limited range of hazards, or suitability for use under limited or special conditions.
  • UL Classified products are limited to specific ballast model numbers in UL-approved installation instructions. Facility liability insurance policies may be voided where inconsistencies exist.
  • Electrician required where existing ballast is not included on UL-approved installation instructions list.
  • The UL Component mark is specifically used on parts are part of a larger product or system.
  • These components have restrictions on their performance or may be incomplete in construction.
  • UL Component products in this category are intended to be installed in another end product, and are intended to be installed at the factory, not in the field. Field installations in no approved.

Pure Bright Safety Ratings: UL Listed- A clear choice for your next project

  • Pure Bright LED T8 tubes have passed the most rigorous testing procedures at Underwriters Laboratories and have received UL Listed approval.
  • When you are considering ballast-compatible LED products, the NTL safety rating significantly impacts how you are to use the products.
  • When manufacturers’ products claim “Plug and Play”, but have only achieved UL Classified, you must first check the ballast model number to ensure it matches approved ballasts on the UL-approved installation instructions (must be supplied with tubes); failure to check ballast compatibility may affect commercial property insurance claims).
  • National, State and Local Electric Codes determine when an electrician is required to change ballasts.
  • UL Component rated lamps are not field installable.
  • As Local Building Codes: Pure Bright Plastics Fire Safety Rating: UL 94-V-0
    Fire codes, life safety and model building codes include numerous requirements that products and materials meet specified minimum flammability ratings.
  • By ensuring that building materials meet hourly fire resistance ratings and don’t exceed flame spread and smoke developed ratings, occupant safety is optimized.
  • Failure to meet these minimum standards increases the chance of fire and smoke spread, and increased dangers for building occupants.
  • The Pure Bright T8 LED tube lens materials are recognized and certified by Underwriters Laboratories to flammability specification UL 94-V-0 under yellow card listing.
  • The UL 94 Standard provides a method for rating the ignition characteristics of plastic materials.
  • The UL 94 “V” indicates a vertical burn test that is used widely for plastic materials that are used mostly in electrical devices.
  • In this test-five vertically mounted samples are exposed to two successive ten-second bottom ignitions for a ¾” 50W tirrel burner flame ignition source. Flame resistance is then classified according to:
    1) The time for the flame to self-extinguish, and
    2) The duration of the afterglow
  • To achieve a V rating (e.g. V-2, V-1, or V-0) the test samples, placed vertically with the test flame impinging on the bottom of the sample, must extinguish within specified times, not burning to the top clamp or dripping molten material which ignites a cotton indicator.
  • The V-0 rating of our lens polymer is the highest rating under the UL 94-V test which means that:
    a) The extinguishment time (for each samples) was 0-10 seconds
    b) The afterglow time was 0-30 seconds per sample
    c) There are no flaming drips
