Fluorescent

Lite Source offers a wide variety of fluorescent bulbs including circular, straight and U-shaped. We specialize in hard-to-find fluorescent bulbs in a variety of color temperatures and sizes.

  • Circular

    Circular fluorescent bulbs, sometimes known as Circline, are fluorescent tubes that are shaped in a circle with a plug-in base. In residential applications, these bulbs can be found in makeup mirrors, certain models of ceiling fans or a light fixture. Medical professionals and spa facialists may need a circular fluorescent to replace the light in their magnifying mirror. Circular fluorescents come in a range of sizes and color temperatures. Due to a very small amount of mercury in circular fluorescents, it is highly recommended that you recycle any fluorescent bulbs.

  • Straight

    Linear fluorescent tubes are common overhead lighting in almost any commercial building.  They are known for distribution of even light and come in many different color temperatures and lengths.These light bulbs will last 10-20 times longer than an equivalent incandescent bulb and give off lower heat. Due to a very small amount of mercury in fluorescent tubes, it is highly recommended that you recycle your fluorescent bulbs.

  • U-Shaped

    U-shaped fluorescent tube bulbs are designed to normally fit into fixtures found in overhead fixtures that may be found in office buildings, industrial buildings or medical offices. Essentially, U-bent fluorescent bulbs are linear fluorescents that have been shaped by the manufacturer to save space within the overhead lighting fixture. Due to a very small amount of mercury in U-shaped fluorescents, it is highly recommended that you recycle any fluorescent bulbs.
