Home Improvement Questions? Ask a Handyman for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Are you wondering about light output?
Hi Mike, I'm Andrew (in the UK) yes, I want a 12/24 volt fluorescent tube with say 100 watt output. CFL tube would be ideal but don't know where to look!
Got to go off on the school run just now, but hope to catch up with you later Mike
Great Andrew. Thanks for the reply. I'll have some info for you later on. I'm waiting to pickup the boy from school and I'll get some info to you when I'm back at the computer. Do you already have the light fixture? If so what size bulbs?
Maybe so. My boy is 8 on Sunday.
Can you tell me the bulb size? Do you already have a light fixture?
Thanks for that. It will take some research. I will get back with you soon.
no problem. Thanks Mike.
I am still waiting to hear back from one more email which I should here back from today.
I am having a lot of trouble with the type of bulb I am looking for. Do you have a model number of the fixture you are putting it in? If you have not chosen a fixture yet, will you provide me the size of the space you are lighting? Thank you, Mike
Hi Mike, Many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX haven't given you a nightmare!
No all is good. No nightmares here.
The diameter of the illuminated area is 450mm but the screen has a "neck" and the tube we have used to date is 510mm long mounted in a skeleton giving a total length of 610mm Exact product info is at http://lumo.eu.com/products/lumo-13/
Great! Do you have the 12v or 24v?
The light is in an RV?
we use a 12v power supply and the lights are a product that we make to illuminate the outside of Newsagents shops. The Lumo batten is only 13 watts and isn't bright enough and needs two fittings per sign.
Great. thank you.
Well you may want to look at the bulb that you currently have in the fixture. Possibly you have the 700 lumen variety now. The best you can get with what you have is a 850 lumen which would be an improvement. With a voltage converter you could get as much as 1300 lumen out of LED bulbs.
Was this the information you were looking for?
Thanks mike just going to have a look and will feed back.
