Circular fluorescent tubes are a popular choice for lighting designers, particularly in architectural and ceiling light fittings. They are an energy saving and compact light source designed for shallow and slender recessed ceiling and wall-mounted light fixtures, offering the same benefits as linear fluorescent tubes in a more compact, circular shape as opposed to a longer strip light that it may not be possible to accommodate in the intended space.
Circular fluorescent tubes are popular for the particular aesthetic advantages they can provide. With an average life of around 10000 hours, it is a long time before your fluorescent bulbs will need replacing. They are often used in spaces in which flush light fittings are often found, such as bathrooms and kitchens, and other spaces in which a protrusive light fitting may post a health and safety risk, such as in busy corridors or areas of high foot traffic. These light fittings are also commonly as outdoor and security lights as their long life ensures they will last for a long time.
Being a fluorescent light source, these lamps are energy efficient and cost effective when compared to a conventional lighting solution. You can learn more about the different types of fluorescent tube lights, including circular fluorescent tubes, in our handy buying guide.
