Shatterproof tubes provide peace of mind in sensitive areas by retaining glass shards if the tube is broken. All our ranges can be shatterproofed, ensuring that you can choose your ideal tube to help you protect even the most sensitive areas, including food preparation and assembly areas.
Shatterproof tubes MUST be installed in areas operating a 'glass free policy'.
The Fluorinated Polymer (FEP) material used for sleeving is designed specifically for optical transmission and allows 97% of effective UV light to pass through the coating. As a result, the maximum possible amount of useful UV irradiance passes through the sleeving to effectively attract insects. With only 3% of the irradiance being absorbed into the material, the structural integrity of the sleeving is maintained for the full 12 month life of the tube, preventing discolouring and ensuring all glass shards are retained in the event of a breakage.
Additionally, all our shatterproof tubes conform to the IEL61549 ‘Fragment Retention’ standard for areas where this is considered appropriate.
Based upon a unique phosphor mix, patented technology ensures that a broader 'two peak' wavelength is maintained (368nm and 540nm) attracting a wide range of insect's including stored product moths, whilst attracting the common housefly as effectively as traditional blue UV tubes, giving you the best of both UV technologies.
A wide diversity of insects were shown to be more attracted to Synergetic® light , including greenhouse whiteflies, silverleaf whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers, Indian meal moths, Mediterranean flour moths, tropical warehouse moths, warehouse moths, plus many more!
Extensive testing has been carried out over many years by independent entomologists and test laboratories, showing the benefits of green light in combination with UV.
