All LED lights are not created equal. Raw materials, design, manufacturing and quality control play a vital role in the performance and lifetime of an LED fixture. For example, Bulb Basics T8 tubes have a 0.8 mm thick aluminum housing, which dissipates heat more effectively than standard 0.5 mm tubes. Bulb Basics LED A19 bulbs last 25,000 hours, whereas typical LED bulbs fail at ≈10,000 hours. Look deeper into our high quality panels below.
Quality LED | Gold wire bonded LED, high efficiency and lumen output
No Light Leakage | Tightly fixed and the gap is carefully covered by sealant
LED Protector | LEDs will not be damaged due to LGP expansion
Embedded Groove | Able to support various accessories and installations
UV Solidity | Great insulation plus strong strain and tension relief
Earthquake Proof | Pre-installed kit prevents ceiling panels from falling
Why Does PMMA Matter?
PS (Polystyrene) Plate
The image above shows two sets of panel lights 6 months after installation. The left side has PS light guide plates. The right side has PMMA light guide plates. PS is a popular material in the United States due to its low price, but it inevitably turns yellow with dark spots which reduces the power conversion efficiency.
PMMA (Acrylic) Plate
The advantages of PMMA include age-resistance and higher light transmittance when compared to PS. Even after years of usage, the color and efficiency will have minimal change.
