Fluorescent Tube Guard Color and Filter Options

One of the standout features of these fluorescent tube guards is the variety of options available. You can choose from a wide range of colors, UV filters, and dimming tube guards to suit your specific lighting needs.

  • Pink tubes produce a pastel pink color.

  • Green tubes produce line green color.

  • Amber tube guards produce a golden yellow color.

  • Yellow tubes produce a soft yellow color.

  • Purple tubes product a vibrant purple colors.

  • Light blue tubes make the light output appear to be 5000 Kelvin. They do not produce a blue color.

  • Smoke guards make the light output appear warmer and reduces glare.

For instances where you just want added protection without any color, choose clear fluorescent tube guards.

Dimmable tube guards give you the flexibility to adjust the light output from 100% down to 30%, minimizing glare and maximizing comfort.

If you’re concerned about UV radiation, there are UV guards available in two colors: amber and clear. Amber UV tubes block UV transmittance below 525 nanometers, while clear UV tubes block UV transmittance below 395 nanometers.
