Vintage English industrial fluorescent

Luminaire Reference: 11_0801

A stunning 1950s vintage fixture by 'Simplex of England' salvaged from an industrial complex on the south coast of England.

The light comprises of the original glass housing and polished aluminium enclosures which feature cast makers marks and detailing. Suspended through a minimal stainless steel suspension system with a ceiling mounting kit that permits millimetric adjustment.

The light is rewired, tested and supplied with a new linear T5 28W energy saving fluorescent and 2 meters of elephant grey braided cable. The florescent tube is located within an etched diffusion sleeve to prevent any glare and creates an even distribution of warm light (2700K) with an average bulb life of 20,000 hours.

Whats the difference in brightness between a fluorescent bulb, a LED bulb and a traditional 60w filament bulb?

Well in simple terms bulb brightness is measured in lumens. Lumens (denoted by lm) are a measure of the total amount of visible light (to the human eye) from a bulb or light source.

As a comparison this fluorescent bulb is 1820lm, a LED bulb of the same length is 2130lm and a traditional 60w filament bulb is 800lm.
