T8 LED Tube Light for Art Studio
I'm trying to find the best way to light a small studio. I came across your website and I think I'm interested in the Northlux 95 CRI T8. I'm having trouble locating a shop-style plugin/pull cord light fixture where I could use these bulbs. Do you have any recommendations on a specific light fixture or would you point me in a different direction using alternate bulbs for my situation? I currently don't have any hard-wired 4ft fixtures in my studio.
It is indeed a bit difficult to locate compatible fixtures as those available today are still configured for fluorescent lamps, which will almost always include a fluorescent ballast which may or may not cause compatibility issues.
One tip we've had other customers have success with is searching online for "LED ready" T8 fixtures, which are configured without ballast and can accommodate our LED tube lights directly.
